Let me start by saying that this party really wasn't gonna happen. The 2nd birthday approached and passed in a flurry of activities, and would have been forgotten had it not been for Shanan, our lead blogger and graphic artist extraordinaire. It turns out she also has a knack for bartending, wooing sponsors, and hosting a kick ass event! She even got the up-and-coming band Purplecrush (of "Too Many Hypebeast" fame) to come out and do their i-tunes release event at the party. Of course the crowds were also there thanks to our killer outreach crew--Fee, Fetti and Erica!
Now, let's remember we were turning a "terrible two"...so of course the event had a couple bumps and bruises. Our killer event tees that Shanan designed didn't show up on time (an eskayel x FSF collab), the owner of Bembe (where Shanan bartends) DID show up, and had some beef with our spray chalk and customizers...but all was overcome with killer 80s music, a great crowd of sneaker lovers and some requisite drinks...
