This time a year ago: Sono was opening up, West was getting it’s pool, this guy drove from NY to LA in 2 mintues, we were figuring out the great debate – Antoine? Or Robin?, learning the history of various cocktails, learning the origin of our street names, and these two guys were taking a super cool road trip. Most excitingly – we were able to determine how many balls it would take to turn your apartment into a ball pit.

Today’s Sign of the Impending Apocalypse:
46 shots of tequila?!

Happy Thursday folks!
