The awesome people at the Chinatown International District invited us to create a battle for their Night Market. We’ve worked with them in the past and have had nothing but good experiences, so we gladly accepted. The concept is simple; invite 8 deserving crews from the Northwest, and pit them against each other for cash and prizes. 2013 will be our first year with this concept, and we hope to make it an ongoing event.

The event is free, please come and enjoy the dancing, and stay for the food.
