io9's Golden Anniversary Party in Pictures

On Friday night, io9 celebrated its golden fifth anniversary at the otherworldly Brooklyn bar The Way Station, where the bathroom looks like a TARDIS and creatures from every dimension can mingle without fear of creating a rift in the multiverse. How can we already be at our golden anniversary, when we've only been around for five years? As you probably know, one year is equivalent to ten years in internet time, which is why we are absolutely certain that io9 will be around for at least another 5 million years on the hyperneuronet of tomorrow. Thanks to everybody who came out in the freezing snow to get their io9 t-shirts, drink some delicious cocktails, and listen to the incredible Rob Schwimmer play the theremin! Here are some pictures, taken by Noah Fowler, of the reality-defying antics that took place . . .

Ruthless, if you let me

I was going to claim victory in avoiding being in all the pictures here, however my back is represented in a theremin related picture. Still, my countenance is safe.
