If you are not familiar with Gary Vaynerchuck, he is a cat that took a family liquor store from $5 million in sales to $50 million in sales using the Internet and social media. He also got a 7 sticks book deal. Not bad in a Down Economy.
His book is basically about using your passion in life to make money. The book gives some great advice on exactly how to do that and build your personal brand using social media.
This is a pretty remarkable time we live in. Younger G’s should appreciate it. You really can become anything you want to these days. Manifesto Destiny.
Why you should by this book:
1. If you are unhappy with your job and you would like to do something that you love doing.
2. If you want to learn how to turn your passion into a money maker.
3. You want to learn whats going down in the world today.
Two hours from Barcelona, and a world away, lies the tiny wine region called Priorat. The remote rocky hills produce intense, full reds that many consider to be among Spain’s elite wines. The secret is in the slate filled soil, called llicorella in Catalan, and the extreme weather of the region. Grape vines on the roughly 4,000 acres of steep hills suffer hot dry summers and severe cold winters creating low yield grape vines that provide concentrated flavor. The region’s innovative winemakers have created a style that has become one of the hottest trends in wine. Continue
I always like to get a haircut before Track Season starts. When you have spent the last 6 weeks swooping topless girls in Spain (La Cote des Basques and the Med) your hair tends to grow. Must be the Mediterranean diet. Or the Basque seafood. Or the vino tinto. (The G Manifesto’s How to Pick up Topless Girls coming soon)
Make sure you get plenty of new custom suits made. Light colors all. Signature Cookie Monster Blue interior. And get your Pocket Square Game Tight.
Make sure all your Zippos, Dunhills, and Dupont lighters are filled to the brim and have good action. Bring a minimum 3 packs of smokes.
Beeks and Beans are still mad popular. As Bill Maher says, “People are doing as much Cocaine as they did in the 80’s. They just aren’t sharing it anymore.” Careful in this heat when you are on the beeks though.

Enter The Dragon
Get your rounds in. They will pay dividends. I would be lying to you if I didn’t tell you I am in amazing shape. (Getting slotted and swooping Topless girls will do that to you.) The G Manifesto’s Exit The Dragon, Enter The Cobra coming soon.
Breathe again. Because I don’t do extortion unless I am on the receiving end.
Make sure you get your Turf Club scenario ironed out. (I just got my re-upped membership in the mail). Or else you will be with the buffoons in the suspect Glittery Ed Hardy Shirts, looking like a nonce, drinking out of plastic with no air conditioning..
The famous winemaker, Eulogio Calleja, uses a blend of 50% Verdejo and 50% Viura/Sauvignon Blanc to make Las Brisas. Naia is 100% Verdejo which is aged sur lie for 4 months to accentuate the characteristics of the varietal. Naiades is crafted from the oldest ungrafted vines of Verdejo and aged for 8 months in French oak.
None of this takes away from the fact that Pulling a Vicky Cristina can be a very effective/innovative move for the upwardly mobile International Playboy on The Rise. At least, it will help cut through the boredom in American Nightlife and the ennui associated with American Girls.

Here is how it is done:
Find the Right Venue
Well, the “wrong” venues, thankfully, are wack spots, sports bars, low end clubs etc. Places you shouldn’t be hanging out at anyways. If you see Ed Hardy shirts and Plastic Tiaras, you are in the wrong place.
Other signs to look for: People that look like they hang out at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Beenies, tribal tattoos, and girls yelling “Wooo! Girls Night Out! I love my girls!” and other earsplitting phrases. (Seriously, if I hear this type of crap one more time, I am liable to go bonkers, smoke some Sherm Stick, go on a West Coast “Who Ride” and end up wanted for a homicide.)
Conversely, the “right” venues are high-end lounges, Gentleman’s Clubs (of course, this doesn’t really apply to this Chamber of the Manifesto, although technically a great location to pull a Vicky Cristina), Model Girl Bars, sensual restaurants were the Chef does all kinds of sexy things with food, lobby bars of Fly hotels, The French Riviera, South Beach, and of course, Catalunya.
If the drinks are expensive, drugs are being consumed at a rapid pace and the girls look like something you would see on the cover of a Spanish fashion magazine, you are in the right place, Oh my brothers.
Other signs to look for: Titled Royals, Girls dripping with diamonds on their décolletage, a blow dealer you knew from way back, daughters of Industrialist families, etc.
Find The Right Girls
Again thankfully, like many advanced tactics in The World of Game, Pulling a Vicky Cristina actually works better with flyer girls. And richer girls. And smarter girls. And surprisingly, girls with good breeding. Girls traveling. Model girls. Arriviste American Girls. Run of the mill average to decent looking American girls are not good prospects. They like feminine guys, hipsters, Wimpsters, beta males, regular guy and Chrisitan Audiger wearing Buffons. Leave the wack girls for them.
Furthermore, pulling a Vicky Cristina on regular attractive American Girls, is a respectable result but pulling a “VC” on two high-society fly girls is agnate to winning Roland Garros. Or at least a satellite in Dusseldorf.
(Pulling a Vicky Cristina on two fly Exotic Dancers is a good way to pass the time, but let’s face it, who hasn’t done that literally hundreds of times by now?)
This is an essential. Pulling a Vicky Cristina without dressing sharp is like Rumba without a Trumpet. Or a Parranda without booze and Chicas de la Noche.
If you know me by now, then you know I am predisposed toward Custom suits. Maybe something bespoke and “off-Row” by Douglas Hayward’s Shoppe (95 Mount Street) or Brian Staples’ Shoppe (26 Kingly Street). But with summer already here (The Kentucky Derby marks the start of summer on The G Manifesto Calendar) Resort Style is what I have been flowing with recently.
Think bold shirts, Crimsons, Lavenders, Custom Guayaberas, Irish Linen pants, Gucci Loafers, things like that. Walther P38. Pockets on Green like yellow and blue. Ties looking like a mural. Pocket squares: spiritual, like a ritual.
You want to catch Vicky Cristina prospects eye before approaching. The Art of War. Win every battle before it is fought.
You need to come with Extreme confidence when pulling a Vicky Cristina. Fly girls these day are swarmed by all sorts of gigolos, cads, vulgarians, scoundrels, rouges and bounders.
Any hint of weakness in your Game and girls will attack like a lioness smelling sangre on the Shamwari Game Reserve.
For me this isn’t a quandary. Pulling Vicky Cristinas begets more Vicky Cristinas. Top tier Lotharios have verbals hitting hard like Edwin “El Chapo” Rosario. Charmant.
And always be aware of the dark forces that lie hidden beneath the surface, the ones that some people call superstitions: howling banshees, black cats, witches, hats on beds, dogs, The Evil Eye.

You can’t really control this, but if you have Latin blood, you will pull more Vicky Cristina’s then people without Latin Blood. I have done an unofficial case study on this. This is also why whenever you see a smooth cat swooping two girls cold out of at bar, 9 times out of 10 he is some sort of Latin cat. Don’t blame me, this has been going on since the 20’s. Sure there are historically top tier Playboys from other spots, most notably Gunter Sachs and the Guinness kids. If you don’t have Latin blood, maybe try using a fake foreign accent. (Picking up Girls with fake foreign accents will be covered in a future G Manifesto).
Play off both Girls Common Pick up Theory suggests, when picking up a girl in a two set, you open, neg the target, and gain trust and rapport with the other girl, build rapport and attraction etc. etc. etc.
When pulling a Vicky Cristina, you need to Raise Sexual Tension with Both Girls and neg both girls constantly. Whenever you get rebuffed, simply be calm and act like there is nothing out of the ordinary with your proposal of untamed passion, pleasure, bliss and heaven. Re-frame. And use the right line of Palaver. Remember, there is no Eye like innderstanding.
E-Tabs are known to work as well. But that’s neither Lucite heels nor dollar bill peels. And spark up cigarettes for style points. Or light up the cigar and let the aroma reach up. It’s like the smile on the Mona Lisa or like a falcon flying over Giza.
