While the tournament progressed, friends and event guests watched from MiMA's M Club Lounge, where the Related Classic games were streamed. They also chowed down on a delicious selection of game-day food from Fuku and Whitman's, and imbibed nitro cold brew coffee courtesy of RISE Brewing Co., beer from Blue Point Brewery, and CORE Hydration courtesy of Life Simplified.

After a nail-biting tournament, the final two teams were Team 85 and the Hell's Kitchen Chefs, who took home tickets to a Knick's game. In second place, Team 85 received a sports streaming package courtesy of Starry.

No doubt, watching the pros will inspire everyone to compete and win big again next year.
