Tong Wars

about 30 days ago

In San Francisco around the turn of the century, not the Y2K crossover...the century prior, there was a series of ongoing battles among rival Tongs on the streets of Chinatown. Imagine Gangs of New York, but with a different set of issues and similar violent methods of resolution. To an outside observer the scene may appear chaotic, but where the brutality was abundant so was the code and order. greenchef.com/dank100 and use code DANK100 to get $100 off including free shipping! dadgrass.com/dank for 20% off your first order!
