For the first time ever, non-athletes (including us!) were able to step inside the X Games Athlete Lounge and it was amazing. We instantly fell in love when we found out there were an endless amount of appetizers and a mini-bar onsite! Not only were we excited for the delicious food, but also we were super stoked tomix and mingle withXGamesathletes.
