Homebase 10 year anniversary party and skate jam

Congrats to Homebase for being open 10 years. I say it every time, but it feels like yesterday when some asian with an afro chased me and my friends down as we skated home from Moser and gave us a flier to come to the City Without Spots premiere.


Po’s promo for the video was pretty awesome. Definitely looks promising with Po editing it all.

The underside of some of these Sugar Babe cupcakes had stars on the bottom indicating free stuff.
