It was hands down the longest week I can remember. I felt like Robin Williams in Jack packing four times the events into one week's time. There are a lot of people to thank (Frankie first and foremost for ERRYTHANG (no words for all yo hustle papa), Diana for being the hostess with the mostesss, Lisa & TyTy for letting us rage in Williamsburg, Bear for taking me and Guy to the first chicken spot of a two chicken spot day, Vince for neglecting his homework to kick it with focho, and the Bay's own Chai Guy (Lto the...) for handling our travel arrangements and motivating the troops from the get...all of "YOU ARE ALL I NEED" (foreshadowing).
Anyways, I'll post a grip of pics that represent represent.

This is where it all went down! The primary motivation, for those that don't know was to come show support for Frankie as he hosted the First Annual Astoria Bike Stop Beast Wheelie Contest. He then pulled them aforementioned strings to get shit closed down and allow the aforementioned band the illest spot to throw down.
