Pitt Night Market (匹大夜市), October 20 postponed.

Update [10/8, 22:09] The Night Market has been postponed until the Spring 2013 term.

The Chinese American Student Association at Pitt brings news of this fall's annual Pitt Night Market on Saturday, October 20th from 3 to 10 pm in room 548 of the William Pitt Union.

Time to bring back the infamous NIGHT MARKET!
Culturally dominant in Chinese cities, night markets are a pivotal aspect of urban life in Taiwan and China. Tonight we will be bringing you a glimpse of just what its like to be at a night market. There will be free games and prizes, as well as traditional night market foods and drinks (i.e. scallion pancake, bubble milk tea, etc). Better not miss it!

No word yet on the availability of stinky tofu, but this will definitely be awesome. Though Pittsburgh hypes the Strip District as something of a market---and it's a fine destination in its own right---the city doesn't have anything that matches the activity, the variety, and the mass of humanity of Asian cities a Taiwanese or Chinese night market.
