This past Saturday, we celebrated 5 years of serving the Arts District in DTLA with food, drink and lots of great company. After the year we had, reaching a milestone like this and having people come out to celebrate together with us in a safe way really felt great. We're thankful for all of our friends who took time out to wish us well and drop off champagne, flowers, wine, and beer.
The food and beverages for the night were representative of the community we've built over time. Homage Brewing has been kind enough to collaborate with us on several beers now, and this newest one - a Saison Spritz brewed with passionfruit, guava, orange, and riesling grapes - was a big hit. Our friends at Monkish Brewing also provided kegs of beer for the evening. The partners at Ivy House Wines have been fans of the brand for awhile now and kindly reached out to serve their inaugural Rose for the party and we crushed through the first case with ease, forcing them to call up a friend to drop a second one off. Last but certainly not least, the good people at Hamburgers Nice from Long Beach came out to serve four distinct burgers all night and they were very well received.
Music for the evening was provided by our very own DJ George C and DJ Roland Blunts, and we also got a set from longtime friend DJ Excel, whose mix we've uploaded for your listening pleasure.
We received a few messages after the event from folks telling us that they had a great time reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. That's really what this is about for us: we make and sell clothes, yes - but community and relationships are what we're really looking to foster. Thank you to everyone who's played a part in helping us make it to five years in the Arts District. If you couldn't make it out on Saturday, that's ok. We're open every day, just pull up. We'd love to see you.
