    Wearing Party Masks Is The Right Thing To Do

    But that doesn’t mean they have to be boring! Let’s conquer COVID and protect our communities with Stoke Threads party masks, while showing the world that no matter how messed up the world is, we still love to get down. 

    Of course it’s right to wear a mask in the face of the novel coronavirus, that vicious and heartless virus known as SARS-CoV-2, the ‘Roni, “not MY k-k-k-corona, Ron Johnson and results in the dreadful COVID-19 disease. Stoke Travel is based in Barcelona, Spain. We have lived through the worst lockdowns, have friends who have caught it and had a tough time beating the bastardo, and know neighbours and friends who have lost family members. We joke about everything, even Karen-ona, but that by no means means that we think it’s anything but serious.
    It’s serious, it’s deadly, and it ain’t going to stop until we find a vaccine. And by “we” we mean “them” or “you” the scientists  working on developing the serum that’s going to stop this bugger in its tracks before it overtakes the world.

    In the meantime we’ve got to do what we can to slow the roll of the Rone Ranger and one thing that medical professionals keep on recommending is that we wear a MASK. So of course we do, we wear masks (because in Barcelona you’ll cop a €100 fine if you don’t and because it’s the right thing to do). We wear masks indoors and outdoors (but when there’s no one around we’ll poke a cheeky nose out) and we wear masks at all times except when we’re eating and drinking, which is pretty often for your fat bois at Stoke, but that’s just how it goes.

    So we’ve made a range of party masks based off our famous Stoke Threads party shirts. They’re fun, they’re flirty, they’re double ply with the option to slide in a filter too. They save the world while simultaneously telling the world that you’re still down for the good times. Wearing a party mask is like making a statement to the universe that alls you’re doing is biding your time for this pesky virus to pass before you get out there travelling and partying and just generally doing all the things we used to do and wanted to do before 2020 came along and sharted all over our plans.

    We’ll be selling our Stoke Threads party masks at our Barceloneta store (where you can find party shirts, kimonos, beachwear, fun things, free beer, oh my!), at the San Sebastian Surf House, on the Barcelona Boat Party, and via our online store.

    We’ve got to do the right thing through this unprecedented pandemic, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t let our inner party freak fly. Get a Stoke Threads party mask and let the good times rip!
