Sure, our roundup of fresh-faced S.F. talent ran the gamut from skateboarder to curator to e-tailer to dancer, and while seeing them all together on the web is certainly cool, what’s more, is getting all these rising stars in one room for one kickass bash — IRL. Our 30 Under 30 soiree at the Mission-based venue the NWBLK was packed to the brim with the city’s hottest tastemakers raising a glass (or three) in celebration.
With treats by Doughnut Dolly, a music set by James and Evander, beats by DJ Plastic Plates, boozy concoctions by Absolut, and an addictive photo booth by Smilebooth — there were no dull moments. One of the coolest perks though? Our larger-than-life stream of pics snapped on the Samsung Galaxy S4. Sure, the party may have wrapped but you can relive it over and over again with these sceney snaps. Go ahead, click away.
