The restaurant, which opened in March 2019 at the home of the Las Vegas Golden Knights in the T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip, reflects the experiences from travels throughout Asia and the uniqueness of the Hawker Centres that house the many traditions of each culture. The T-Mobile location focuses mainly on their signature Bao Buns for quick and easy bites while enjoying the game, fight or concert. Its Buffalo location features a full menu with dim sum, noodles, entrees, sides and of course their signature Bao Buns.Free Range BrewingBrewed in North Carolina, Free Range Brewing is the labor of love from brothers, Jeff and Jason Alexander. Raised in Eastern North Carolina, they’re definitely cut from the same cloth, but with distinctly different personalities. The Free Range Brewing story is really just beginning and they welcome you to come be a part of it. “There are so many people in and around Charlotte doing great things and we want to partner with them when we can. Whether it’s sourcing an ingredient, featuring an artist, supporting a cause or doing a full-on beer collaboration, it’s important to foster connections within the community,” says Alexander.#BattleWallsBattle Walls is a four-person street art mural competition where the winner is chosen by the audience. One cube, four artists, a short time frame to impress.
