The day starts with free Basic Training classes every hour, on the hour, from 8am until 12pm. After that, it's time for refueling with food, music and and open bar (holla) from 12 until 4pm (21+ and Eventbrite RSVP required). They're giving away 250 Basic Training tees courtesy of Alternative Apparel and Ape Do Good Printing, plus there will be gifts from Aether Apparel, Basic Training, and more. [Racked Inbox]
