144: Nike, Wiz Khalifa, French Montana

This night there was a Nike Flyknit exhibit opening at Bowery Stadium. Jenny Sabin created this pavillion with the knit material and displayed the culmination of the flyKnit series release.

After the Nike exhibit, a quick ride to Basketball city, I ran into the UFO people and met up with them to get into the Heineken event along with Angelica and Mikey. I got in via a 'e-ticket'. Of course having friends get me into events and such, we had to get our friends that did not have tickets in. Mission accomplished for three out of five. The fallen soldiers this night were Jesse and Slim. There were food trucks in the back, with a 'smoking section', ping pong tables which became beer pong later on, foosball tables, basketball carnival games, and sports video games systems. Of course there was open bar Heineken, Heineken Light, Heineken Dark Ale, and Poland Springs flowing. The food included sliders, pizza slices, grilled cheese sandwiches, and a Mr. Softee truck. All Free. 
The main performances came from French Montana running around the stage going through the singles, followed by DJ Clark Kent mixing a great intermission set, and concluded with a Wiz performance. Wiz went through mostly newer tracks. His showmanship has improved quite a bit since his 'Flight School' days which is my earliest time seeing him perform. This was back in 2008 or so when I first saw him. His stage presence and character reminded me of Kid Cudi's flare.
