1. FU'ing ISIS
    E09611f9 f177 4a89 a077 0073b69348be
    The terrorists thought they could hold me down, but we decided to fly our design team out to NY for a shopping/inspiration trip and then throw a party in the city. But the best part about my week in New York was...
  2. Checking in on The Hundreds New York.
    A5196fd2 ed9b 4d67 a97f f6a768222ec6
    Our NY flagship is in SoHo across from Alexander Wang. All our stores are different and share a unique perspective on Time. This one is in a historical district, so we incorporated much of the existing architecture into the buildout. But the best part about my week in New York was...
  3. Russ & Daughters' lox in the morning.
    198b20c2 596f 42df 9826 20757f9e2e20
    The bagels aren't much to write (or send) home about, but their lox is on LOCK. But the best part about my week in New York was...
  4. Shopping for sneakers at the new Stadium Goods
    1f1588a7 5969 4593 bf6d 13bcd3d483ef
    Like old-school Flight Club days. They've got it all, including a showcase of Air Mags, Undefeated Jordan IVs, and original Carmines. But the best part about my week in New York was...
  5. Eggplant parmigiana at Parm.
    98aeb707 5440 4758 8d67 ed49ea4e6bb8
    A little burnt and crispy around the edges - made for a quick bite before kicking off the evening. Had La Esquina and M Shanghai in Brooklyn this week also. But the best part about my week in New York was...
  6. Visiting New York's hottest new Streetwear/Menswear boutique,
    C5a5ca2b 2576 4a22 bdcb ced6e33363e5
    NOAH. Ran into founder/creator Brendon the night before and things sound up for Supreme's former Creative Director. I can't imagine the magnifying glass he must be under, but this first collection looks promising, and I foresee a long and formidable legacy for his brand. But the best part about my week in New York was...
  7. Catching Travis Scott at Barclays.
    04604cfa 72d1 43f6 8dac cd922bd8ab0e
    The 6:30 opening slot was an adventure getting to in rush hour, but caught the full set, and loved every moment of it. Dude knows how to put on a show. For those who don't know, this is Kanye behind Kanye. The Rihanna behind Rihanna. And in front of Rihanna too, apparently. She was offstage waiting for him. But the best part about my week in New York was...
  8. Witnessing a phenomenon.
    54ed8be6 5b0e 42e4 9308 b7241154c8d3
    The last time I saw Abel perform was his first Coachella sunset performance years ago. Much has changed since the Toronto-based unknown American Apparel store employee broke the Internet.
  9. I'm never missing another The Weeknd tour.
    A596516b 18f9 4cd1 97b4 56cc31a19fb5
    Alright, getting to dance between Barbara Palvin and Vinny from Entourage may have also skewed my experience. But the best part about my week in New York was...
  10. Running into the lil' homie Jay Worthy.
    624952d2 498d 4863 ad19 4b1d283fcaa7
    Lots of music happenings happening. Jay's in town for his record release party for his rap group, LNDN DRGS (under Fool's Gold) - you may have been seeing them pop up a lot on Vice/Noisey. Jay's sister has also made some headway in the music space (Grimes); now, it's time for this Piru to get his shine. But the best part about my week in New York was...
  11. The Hundreds presents SPITSET.
    357d5c95 d606 4f91 b180 e23aa8b532b6
    'til 4am at the obscure and appropriately weird China Chalet dim sum restaurant. We throw this party monthly with rapper Alexander Spit at random venues around LA and SF. This time, we hit NY. The goal is to showcase who's on deck from the music underground. We've introduced Warm Brew, Father, Jazz Cartier, and Overdoz in the past. (this photo by @thewastedtalent) But the best part about my week in New York was...
  12. The Ratking boys top off the night.
    A8458471 5ead 43d8 ba90 6d536e89a073
    Wiki and Sporting Life, two of New York's most talked-about young rap artists. The next Lil' Kim (can I say a better Lil' Debbie?), Donmonique, riled up the room. But the best part about my week in New York was...
  13. Reading this on the flight home.
    4496b015 e45e 4b52 9b33 39bc0b2b3dda
    But the best part about my week in New York was...!!!!
  14. MEETING DANA IRL
    E30ab91d a1a4 4499 a47d 23e04c67172a
    YES. @DanaDigsYou is a real person with a mellifluous podcast voice and illustrious grown-up career. We talked about the state of the publishing industry, what it takes to get a book deal, and lots of @tombatten. I know The List App's value lies primarily in its content, but it's the community that holds the power. If you ever have the opportunity to meet Dana IRL, I highly recommend it. This was the best part of my week in New York.
