Ping Pong Wok

By: Jennifer Herrera

As the Olympics winded down this past weekend the folks over at Stone Oak's Fire Wok kept the spirit alive with their ping pong tournament. Owner Michael Hu challenged customers to a game of ping pong with winners walking away with a free lunch. And although Hu admitted in his press release that he hadn't played ping pong in about 35 years you wouldn't know when you saw him in action on Saturday.

Hu updated us on the winners: Jeff Torres clinched the gold, with Bing Zhu and JT Si winning the silver and bronze, respectively. But everyone left a winner; Fire Wok offered free egg rolls to non-winners. The event brought out customers as young as six and as old as 80. “It was `a` fun day for everybody,” Hu said.
