Inside The Related Classic Tournament and Viewing Party
In honor of March Madness, basketball-loving residents and their friends headed to MiMA this weekend for the Third Annual Related Classic Basketball Tournament & Viewing Party.
The tournament was a full bracket– overseen by refs including Curtis Moses of Apex Athletics – with 16 teams competing to be champion on MiMA's full regulation-sized basketball court.
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.
