Downtown Throwdown on Saturday
An urban snowboarding exhibition out of Seattle called Downtown Throwdown just had its sixth annual tournament, and they've added San Francisco as a satellite city for the first time.
Tomorrow (Saturday) between the Asian Art Museum and the Main Library, from noon to four, we are in for a treat according to the Transworld Snowboarding site. "In the past 5 years this event has grown from a great local event to the biggest and most respected urban snowboarding event in the world, with a focus on the up and coming snowboarders who are shaping the industry."
"It's gonna be BANANAS!" the site also promises.
According to their website, "Snowboy Productions was started in 1997 by Krush Kulesza...and has become the premier event production company for boardsports and youth culture in the Northwest."
It's free, there will be beautiful young athletes performing amazing physical feats on fake snow, and it's being billed as explicitly hipster. I'll be checking it out and if you're in the neighborhood, you might want to do the same.
