Much love to the folks that ventured out to the first Wine & Bowties of the Spring. To Tap 10, Starter Kit, Jay Casio and Yung_smh thank you for blessing us with your tunes. Consider it the first HNRL + TT6 + DRGN + W&B collab. Friday got weird but we live to tell to about it through pictures and words.
Shout out to Anika and Nasty Nate for being down, and to Morgan and co. for handling. The Day After Valentine’s Day was one to remember. Whole party going crazy. Thank you for supporting Wine & Bowties, check out some pics from the night right here.
February marked the first installment in our nascent discussion series, Talks, where we opened up a conversation about creativity and entrepreneurship. For the inaugural, we called on a superstar cast of young creatives: Cre8tive Class founder Daghe, photographer Lauren Crew, MC and visual artist Queens D. Light, Oakland Surf Club’s Max Klineman, and Flavourhood’s Japheth Gonzalez.
A few years back, one of our favorite artists laced us with a used Yashica. Since then, we’ve been collecting memories of people we love and the places we’ve been. A reminder to keep capturing these moments, and a thank you to Maggie for getting us started.
We step inside the world of the Top Dog Guy. Looking back on 23 years of service, we sit down with Top Dog’s longest working employee, taking time to learn about his life, his career, and his legacy as a Berkeley legend. With photography by Scott Rockwell and words by Max Gibson, this piece is one for the ages.
