Dear All,

Before we DIVE into the photos below (and yes, photobooth photos are coming), we wanted to just give some basic thanks to everyone involved in making this past Friday as magical as it truly was:

  • Thank you to the National Geographic team for inviting us to throw this event with them and let us use their awesome Museum and Nat Geo Live! spaces
  • Thank you to that storm for staying away
  • Thank you to NYC performance art dance party weirdos CHERYL you glittered up this party well
  • Thank you to all our DJs-you guys were great: Jahsonic, Tariq, Sinister Sound Set
  • Thank you to everyone who participated and was great in the variety show: your hosts Brandon Wetherbee and Jen Tisdale, Birdlips, Wytold,  and the Nat Geo Live folks  that gave the entertaining yet educational speeches: Adventurer and Filmmaker Trevor Frost, Engineer and Tech Genius Mike Shepard, Photographer and Conservationist Gabby Salazar
  • Thank you to Stella Artois for supporting all BYT events this year
  • Thank you to Red Bull, Smirnoff and KIND Bars for supporting this event as well
