SPECIAL THANKS TO
Wonder Woman suits, the mystery of the missing narwhal costume, and the artist formally known as Japancakes
Thanks to all who ended up coming out to our birthday party this year. Turning six seems like a good year to take the training wheels off and for this party, we were already at “look no hands.” Slightly more grown-up feeling, the party took place at the fancy Montauk Lake House (thank you to everyone on staff there that helped us source more cutting boards, which was absolutely the most important thing at T-minus 3 hours before the party, we appreciate you).
Dance floor ready, our party wouldn’t make sense if there wasn’t a William Grand behind the DJ booth. Thankfully he was and started off the evening with a few nice tunes while everyone sipped on a couple of Tequila Don Julio cocktails. Also wouldn’t be a Whalebone party without Don Julio. Having heard us say that last line while setting up, the guys over at Montauk Brew Co. decided to drive their van straight onto the lawn. We forgave them after a custom lemon-lime 6-pack was presented to us as a gift—very Roman emperor type-style.
Second act of the party featured a break in the magic of William Grand and entered the DC universe. Or at the very least, the Time Square version of the DC universe that saw comedian Seth Herzog take the stage in a bare-legged Wonder Woman costume to do a little stand-up + dance routine for everyone as they sipped some JuneShine and the life-blood of the Hamptons, The Palm by Whispering Angel. Likely we owe a contrite nod to some of our friends over at Rushmeyers after Seth’s set, but if you can’t laugh at yourselves… you know the rest.
Good laughs led to a little more live music in the form of The Dexter Lake Club Band. Birthday guests were certainly keeping the dance floor alive, mostly led by our shipping manager Kristen who was having a main character moment and hyping up the crowd—all while making sure everyone had enough JUST water to keep them going. Thanks, Kris. The real twist was when the band played a little Journey, and somehow, not even sure how this is possible, didn’t end on them. But they ended on The Killers and that ain’t a bad way to go.
So, again thank you to everyone that showed up for our little shindig. We couldn’t do it without you. And hopefully, everyone snagged their gift bag stuffed with a Tanqueray 4-pack. If not please email Matt and he’ll handwrite an apology for you.
