Can’t lie, the 4th of July had become a little lame in NYC over the last years, more of a reason to get out of town than to stay. But leave it up to a pandemic to set that shit straight! This July 4th NYC officially came back, like allll the way back!!! Together with our friends from Funky Seshwa and Gertie, we shut the block down and turned Grand Street in Williamsburg into a party that woulda made the 80’s jealous! From a banging BBQ to drink specials from Sunday Beer, Amass Hard Seltzer, St Agrestis and Ilegal Mezcal to DJ sets from Willy Soul, Ria Bird, Miranda Maxwell, DJ Smoke L.E.S. featuring live percussion from Charly Prince TWC and the very first post pandemic performance by Bobbito aka Kool Bob Love, you could say it was NYC block party perfection! And even then you wouldn’t be close to describing how dope it was. Thanks to everyone that came out, we’re going to make it a tradition! Peep the whirlwind of photos from Craig Wetherby, Mike Spears and Vito Corleone below. We can’t wait til next year! PS If you missed it, we’ve got Kool Bob Love’s full set recorded so you can still feel the vibes!Enjoy!
