Sub Zero, Scorpion, Liu Kang, Jax & Reptile. Sound familiar? They’re all famous characters from the popular video game Mortal Kombat, and might all be making celebrity appearances at Uberpong's next event: Mortal Pongbat.
That’s right, the team that brought you Chawlie, the Uberpong Assassins, and the Red & Black Rebellion are teaming up with iHeartAustin to take you and ping pong back to your childhood days at an “Easy” location whose food packs some serious punch! Back to a time when all that was needed to play a video game was the A and B buttons...
So here’s what you need to know:
Location: Easy Tiger
Cost: Free to attend for non-tournament players. $10 to register ahead of time on eventbrite/$12 to register at the event. FREE if you have an Uberpong paddle!

Dress up as your favorite Mortal Kombat character (or any video game character really), because you never know when you’ll be selected for a Pongbat "deathmatch," where you’ll need to summon your best finishing moves in front of an adoring crowd. Costume optional, but there will be a prize for best-dressed!
