Huckberry x Whalebone Magazine NYC Issue Release Party
Last Friday or thereabouts, Whalebone Magazine visited Huckberry’s NYC Pop-Up Shop for a nice little shindig celebrating the release of The New York City Issue. If you were there, great. If you weren’t, just blame it on the trains again (it was likely true).
As it turns out, these Huckberry folks know how to host a damn good party at their new digs over at 383 Bleecker St. (the company’s first physical shop ever—and right here in the Big Apple) made for a cozy place to gather together 300 of our closest friends for a night of toasting to the subways that ran mostly on time and got everybody there despite the city’s first blast of winter weather. Thankfully the snowmobile perched in the Huckberry window wasn’t needed to traverse the frigid night.
If you missed the party… well you can still get your hands on a copy of the issue, and learn about such things as the history of hot dog carts, Mayor LaGuardia’s War On Chewing Gum, a time when graffiti covered every Subway car and Ed Kotch declared his own war, where a cast of familiar NYC faces goes to grub and that one time Donald Trump got hit over the head with a bottle at the Comedy Cellar.
Big thanks to Huckberry, DJ William Grand, Tito’s Vodka, Archer Roose Wines and Montauk Brewing Co. for the assist.
