PART 8: THE GAMES GET INTENSE WITH QUARTER FINALS
This week we welcome the return of The Association soccer league after taking a week off to allow for some much needed World Cup focus. While the global event is still underway, there’s no reason why we can’t enjoy a spot of the game right here in our city of Los Angeles, so the league continues and is now in its quarter-final stage. While typically we have a brand or special guest curate a centerpiece for game night, we wanted everyone to focus on the games at end, and we’re now only two nights away from crowning the winner, and as such, we noticed just how much more intense the rapid-fire games were this time around; the heat is definitely being felt, and the passion and competitiveness have definitely been cranked up a good few notches.
That being said, we’re still maintaining our usual offerings with free and delicious tacos, an open bar courtesy of El Jimador, music spun by our man DJ Kappa, and Mando Fresko holding it down as our host. And while there is, of course, the bigger tournament going on out there in Russia, we’re more than thankful to all of you who still came through to enjoy our own local league. Check out what went down at The Association quarter-finals thanks to our photographers Willie T and Josh, and be sure to come by for the semi-finals, as the games are about to get even more intense!
