Portland and Denver Vans Skate Legends Weekend

Alva and Hosoi signed for around 300 fans and lasted until the mall closed. The next day, on a wet frigid morning, Hosoi disappeared to San Diego to take first place at a Grind For Life lay-back contest while Alva had an interview with a local Portland radio station. T.A. picked out his top five punk songs and talked about all things music for their weekend Punk Show. From Portland, San Diego and San Jose, the guys jetted to Denver for a Sunday afternoon autograph signing at the new Vans store at Southwest Plaza in Littleton, CO. Steve Caballero joined Alva and Hosoi for this one, and good thing he did because around 500 fans showed up to meet them. Three hours and 30 sharpies later, the guys shot to the Denver airport to head home in all different directions. A quick weekend and a ton of signatures didn't even faze these guys...they don't call them "Legends" for nothing. Thanks to all that came out.
