LOS ANGELES, Feb 19, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Playboy and Play Beverages LLC are

regular and sugar-free, Playboy Energy is now available in the Boston area and
will roll out to Miami, Las Vegas and Los Angeles this March.

always been associated with the Playboy brand,” says Sarah Haney, vice

seen many players both large and small emerge with new brands,” says Robert
Nistico, president of Play Beverages LLC. “The Playboy Rabbit Head Icon is among
the most recognized brand icons globally and affords us instant recognition and
credibility in this dynamic category – all of which will ultimately translate to
trial and repeat purchases.”
