The inaugural Austin X Games are set to start June 5, but, of course, a kickoff party is planned for the day before at a West Sixth Street club.
The event, which will benefit the V Foundation for Cancer Center, is planned from 6 to 9 p.m. June 4 at the Belmont, 305 W. Sixth Street.
Will there be music? Yes, from G. Love, Austin’s Zeale and more.
Will there be X Games athletes? Yes, BMXers Ryan Nyquist and Mat Hoffman are hosting the party.
Will there be an auction? Funny you should ask because the answer is yes.
The X Games are set for June 5-8, with most events at Circuit of the Americas in Southeast Austin.
