America vs. Canada 4th of July/Canada Day Party at HQ Gwangan This Saturday

For the fifth consecutive year, HQ Gwangan will be holding a drinking/eating battle between two nations that understand an awful lot about drinking/eating: ‘Murica and Canada.

This is in celebration of Canada Day and the 4th of July. The victory totals going into this year — USA 3, Canada 2 — and they’re adding some new elements to make the competition even more heated this year.

First off, they’ll be opening the doors early and holding an indoor two-on-two mini hockey tournament at 3:00. While you can have players from anywhere in the world, we ask that you designate whether your team is playing for the USA or Canada. The winning team will earn a free bottle of either Canadian Club or Jim Beam whiskey, plus 25 points for their country in the food/drink face-off. Rules for the mini-hockey tourney can be found here.

Later at night, starting at 7:00, they’ll have their USA VS Canada gluttony-off, with plenty of drink and food specials for each country. (And more specials TBA!!!)

For Canada –

Moosehead bottles for 4000
Canadian Club shots/cocktails for 5000
Proper Caesars for 7000
Homemade Poutine

For the USA –

Budweiser bottles for 4000
Jim Beam shots/cocktails for 5000
Chili Cheese Fries

Each time one of those specials gets purchased, the corresponding country gets a point. At the end of the night, all points will be tallied, and the winning country will get a huge party — 2 FREE KEGS OF CASS AND A VAT OF CHILI — on the following Wednesday that can only be accessed by showing your national ID. Plus you’ll have the knowledge that you helped your homeland win bragging rights for the next 364 days!

Live music starting at 9:00 by Aaron Welch, a great guy and excellent performer, will be playing some American and Canadian classics to get everyone in the proper mood! When he’s not on stage, they’ll be taking requests all night if you want to get the nationalistic mood going!
