Thousands of people will be flying in from around the world for the event… If this was a small preview of what’s to come its going to be it one hell of a party event!

Next stop NYC! (at Croatia)
These are bullet holes. In Osiejc Croatia almost every building is covered with them. There are so many in fact that the city can’t repair all of them nor do they try to as They are seen as signs of pride for the city who fought for their lives and freedoms to over come Serbia who was invading from 1988 til the early 90’s. It is very surreal to be in a place where not long ago was such intense violence. It is so hard to imagine because the people here are so beautiful, peaceful and welcoming. I am very happy that there were able defend their land and prosper. (at Osieck)

For anyone traveling to Croatia I highly recommend a visit to the coast line even if it’s for 24 hours… It is every bit as beautiful as you would imagine it to be. It also helped that my my man @dreone73 happens to live there half of the year and he gave me the vip treatment, island hoping in his boat, swimming in the most secluded crystal clear waters and having the freshest food straight from the gardens and Adriatic sea. Thank you Dre for the world class hospitality and to all of the locals of the island of KRK for being so welcoming. Now it’s off to the other side of the county to the city of Osijec to announce the 2nd stop on the @fiseworld BMX series. Over the next to days you can Follow the live steam at fise.tv.

After my interview this morning in Brooklyn I Jumped in a flying saucer and traveled to the other side of the world to explore the Adriatic Sea with another one of my brothers @dreone73. Thank you Dre for showing me one hell of a time on the high seas in style. Shout out to Bella the small dog w a big personality, drinking house made wine in a 40 bottle on a boat and to @loganmartinbmx for us randomly sitting next to each other on a plane as he just came off a bronze medal at nitro games and I celebrated my metaphor gold medal with a party at the admirals lounge before take off.
Editors note: life is crazy. 100 years ago this would have been impossible. Every time I board a plane I’m fully aware how crazy it is and how grateful I am to experience what all of humanity could not even fathom for thousands and thousands of years. Thank you universe. (at Krk Island Croazia)
I just had the honor of being interviewed about my BLACKEN BMX Brother in arms #JimmyLevan for the up coming documentary about his life titled #gofastpullup.

Happy Birthday to My Dance Partner In Crime @ZebraKatz!! Now it’s official with our matching custom D.P. embroidered Jackets. 🎉🍾🎉🍾🎉
About 10 years ago, I was fortunate to meet Ojay at a weekly Tuesday Night party I was throwing on the Lower East Side in NYC. From the moment we met I knew that he was a SUPERSTAR and that I was blessed in the presence of greatness. It’s been amazing watching his star rise, shinning bright and seeing him grow into an international music sensation. These days Ojay and I are usually both touring in different parts of the world but when we get a chance to connect it’s always amazing tearing up a dance floor together.
If you want to see some remarkable style and very unique music check out @ZebraKatz on youtube. HBD Ojay, I can’t wait too see what magic you create next!
Big shout out to my favorite DJ @dirtyfinger for the pic and for touring the world playing music with both of us. #ZebraKatz #DjDirtyFinger #DirtyFinger #DarrylNau (at The Ides Rooftop the Wythe Hotel)
All hail the king! In one of the most athletic displays in sports history Joey Chestnut down 70 dogs to take back the title and the Mustard Belt from Matt Stonie!!! Shout out to the legend Ed “Cookie” Jarvis!!

Event and Party Production
A great party and event is what we live for. The energy of a group of people coming together celebrating dancing and creating is the apex of what it means to be alive!
For over 10 years this passion has fueled our Party and Event Production team under the DARRYL NAU Presents umbrella in NYC, LA, Austin and Miami.
We have produced Movie Premiere Parties (Jackass 2), Album Launches (NIN, Bloc Party) and some of the most over the top themed events (Tampon Tuesday, Tinfoil Madness, 1000 Rolls of TP, Jewish Disco). We have seen half of NYC have sex on the dance floor and hosted more open bars than hotdogs eaten at Nathan’s.
Some past Guests, Dj’s and Performers have included - Spank Rock, Bloc Party, Modest Mouse, The Misshapes, Tommy Sunshine, Steve Aoki, DJ Dirty Fingers, Perry Farrell, Vice Magazine, Fuse TV, TheCobraSnake.com, LastNightsParty.com, Roxy Cottontail, Ursula 1000, Ninja Sonik, Mike Skinner (the streets), Laura Bush (the EX-presidents daughter made page 6 when she went into party monster mode and lost her wallet at Shit Hammered), Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Mat Hoffman, Bam Margera, Arto Saari, Rune Glifberg, Jimmy Levan, Garrett Byrnes, Jack Osborne, Interpol, Michelle Gondry, Julia Styles, Ti, West, As Four Fashion Designers, Michael T, Justine D, Harold Hunter, Maroon 5, Sophia Lamar, Amanda Lepore, Suroosh-Gavin-Shane (founders of Vice Magazine), UFO (Arrested twice), Swoon, Sadu (shit his pants twice), Haculla, Astro Earl, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mint and Serf, Japanther, Federation X, The Mr. Move, Joanna Angel, James Patterson (PressTube.com), Ellen Stagg (thestagparty.com) and thousands of other people who were showing us how to have the time of their life.
Some past events
Tuesday Nights at Happy Ending w/ Spencer Product, Stefan Lockdown (r.i.p.), Darryl Nau and DJ Bastard. An over the top weekly themed party with open bar, porno and the craziest people going mental. Words cannot even describe how out of control this party was when it was in its prime. A staple pick for The Cobra Snake.com, Last Nights Party.com and Paper Magazine - “Party-circuit people know that Tuesday nights begin and end at Happy Ending”, “This party needs one of those theme park signs that say you must be at least this tall to ride and warns women who think they might be pregnant to stay the hell away.”- Paper Magazine.
PEACE OF PIZZA
The first nu rave style party in the states. Neon food explosion themes with resident DJ’s Dirty Finger (BLBC), Kingdom (Club Vortex) and Reverend McFLY (Ninja Sonic). Darryl Nau and Krystyna Printup flew guest DJ’s over from London and some past performers include DJ Niyi, JuiceBoxx & Dre Skull, Neon Music, Bunny Rabbit...
I know that I'm FB friends with a lot of BMX riders who have been inspired by Stephen Murray in more ways than one... that being said, I Just wanted to help spread the word about a gofundme that was set up to assist Stephen in traveling back home to the UK from the United States. If you you happen to have a few bucks to help a fellow BMX rider out, it would go along way and I know Stephen would appreciate it. If not that's okay, maybe just go outside and tear up a few laps in his honor today. Regardless thank you for taking the time to read this and possibly share this with your friends.
