See You Next Year.

What a week. The guys at Coastal Edge were amazing hosts. Virginia Beach folks, y’all are out of your minds. Come visit Vans in SoCal anytime. I thought I should do a couple of superlatives to play us out.

Best Portrayal of US State as a Gun

Best Use of Ski Poles on a Beach

Best Use of Giant Shirt in Making One’s Torso Appear Five Feet Long

Best Hair – This awesome guy. He’s in a hard rock band, and he’s got a great sense of humor. Ladies, he’s taken. His gal is the one with the curly dark hair in the nice family group photo. Don’t step. She’ll kick your ass VA Beach style.

Sunday Ruckus

The coolest way to get around Virginia Beach has got to be this Honda Ruckus. Mark & his wife were nice enough to tell me a bit about it. I want one. Need one.

Last Night’s Party

Vans threw a rager last night at Waterman’s. Oh. My. God. Mix Master Mike absolutely killed it with DJ Eric getting the crowd warmed up. Fortunately for us, there was no prolific photographer and therefore no evidence that could be held against us in a court of law. Here’s a couple of tidbits.

And this special moment starring Simon Tabron and produced by Coco Zurita. This is how dudes get ready to party.

Chevy Chase In The House

I walked up to this guy and asked him what the hell the plate was all about. He said, “There’s a cop over there that looks like Chevy Chase.” Oh. Ok. It completely makes sense for you to write a bunch of stuff on a paper plate, then.

Set Your Goals

Set Your Goals played yesterday afternoon, and Virginia Beach couldn’t quite handle it. Everyone went completely crazy. The security guys were singing along. It was fantastic. The cops made us stop the show because they’d never seen anyone moshing.
