From the organizer:

Only got $20 in your pocket? That shouldn't stop you from getting completely decked out in someone else's grandpa's duds!!!

Time to get pumped up for the first ever installment of Saigon's (hopefully) favorite annual event organized by the "Work Hard Play Hard" team (formerly known as "Live, We Are Young") and SGOC!!!

To raise and embrace the awareness of “Recycle, reuse and reduce,” get completely funked out and head on down to the one and only Saigon Outcast at 188/1 Nguyen Van Huong street to enjoy the sun set, local craft cocktails, frosty brews, tasty bites from local restaurants, snacks, musical entertainments, live performances and many more!
