Urbanite recently met yo-yo champion Pat Cuartero -- who is incidentally CEO of his own company YoYoNation.com (yeah, he gets to yo-yo for a living!) in Washington Square Park, where he showed us some original tricks like "Angel Wings" and one where he knocked a quarter off a kid's ear and some cool updates on old faves like "Walk the Dog," and "Around the World."
Cuartero and some fellow yo-yo champs will put their skills on display Saturday at a yo-yo event - the 2008 International Yo-Yo Open - at the South Street Seaport. Details [HERE].
