It was all fun and rain on an overcast and cold Thursday night when SKYY Vodka hosted an exclusive kick-off party aboard a yacht  for the three-day Governors Ball  music festival. Anna Kendrick, Chace Crawford, Olivia Palermo, Aziz Ansari, and David Cross were some of the celebs who got their sea-legs despite the weather, courtesy of Tropical Storm Andrea.  Crawford and Kendrick, costars on “What To Expect When You’re Expecting,” caught up over a game of ping pong (and promotional shots like the one above) while Ansari hung out out with Cross and James Murphy from the defunct LCD Soundsystem (Murphy later spun some tunes to the Vodka-and-rain soaked revelers). Crawford told fans that he flew his best friend  from his Dallas high school to check out the party and come to Governors Ball  while Palermo said she was most pumped to see Kanye West.  [Related tag='The Word']
