Andrea Chromik is one of several returning contenders in this year’s Aprons for Gloves charity event. Having come in as a Kitsilano kid last year, she’s now a Blacktail Florist fighter, one of five from the Gastown eatery, and expects the odds will swing in her favour this time around.

But, she’s been training hard and expects her ‘slick, ugly moves’ to put her on top this year.
