The annual Mitchell & Ness Spring Launch party took place last night at their 12th and Chestnut store front. I had the pleasure of rubbing elbows with the Creme de la Creme of Philadelphia all whilst shimmyping my hips to the musical makings of the one and only DJ Biz Markie.
The party promptly kicked off at 7 p.m. as attendees began to peruse wall after wall of Philadelphia sports paraphernalia. From hats to jerseys, this store was easily a Philadelphia fans wet dream. Adorably and appropriately dressed employees handed out baseball style hors d’oeuvres while cocktails flowed freely in the another room. From Eagles players (Moise Fokou and Keenan Clayton) to the owner of Philadelphia's premiere high-end suit designer Commonwealth Proper, to the Philly Phanatic himself, the store was filled to the brim with people that had one thing in common: a love for Philly sports teams. Oh, and of course rooting for our Fly-guys to give a proper whooping to Pittsburgh in the first round of the playoffs!
Check out some of the highlights from the one of the best parties I have ever been to and then go to Mitchell & Ness to get your gear!
