Was it all a dream?! Last week we officially kicked off summer in the city with our annual Après in May party with Burton Snowboards at Milk Studios and damn what a kick off it was! After a day of weather watching and a torrential monsoon that touched down just a few hours before go time, the anticipation was palpable but as if on cosmic cue, the sun gods opened up the sky right as the party started and delivered what was easily the most beautiful night of the year! With Stretch Armstrong and Y3LDA rocking back to back sets, guests like Burton team riders Danny Davis, Mark McMorris, Mark Sollors, Mikkel Bang, Anna Gasser, Ben Ferguson, and Kelly Clark enjoyed premium roof top vibes with Stoli cocktails, Pacifico cerveza, Sweet Chick bites, Van Leeuwen ice cream and the entire Burton NYC extended fam! It was definitely one for the books, check out the evening in photos by Craig Wetherby and Justin Lamar below. We already can’t wait til next year!!
