PASS~PORT‘s first ever store opened in Sydney last night, and it was a bloody good one.
The brand new shop and gallery space on Oxford Street, Darlinghurst opened its doors to punters last night and the place was soon overflowing with people (and red wine). 20-minutes into the start of the night, the generous supply of cold beers from Grifter were gone—a problem quickly solved by the entrance of four more cases.
As the party spilled onto the street, we were blessed with a local busker going ham sandwich on the bongos, which the homies happily joined in on with a squeaky toy hammer beat.
Could the night get any better? Fuck yeah it could. With the after party approaching, Aussie SOTY Jack O’Grady copped a big surprise with a much deserved Slam magazine cover shot by Sam Coady (a first for Coady). With the stoke levels high and the shop scattered with beer cans, we hit the bar. Congrats on a huge night and your first ever bricks and mortar PASS~PORT, you deserve it.
