HQ Gwangan Open Mic Night @ HQ Gwangan

Alright, folks, our new weekly trivia night is continuing to build, and we are always looking for new brainiacs to raise their swords. If you weren’t able to make it in the past, let me remind you that the pub quiz is now at HQ Gwangan every Wednesday, and there’s a new format:

1000 Won Entrance Fee Per Player / Winning Team Gets The Cash!

Maximum Team Size is 5. Minimum Team Size is 1.

2 Rounds of Questions
3 Categories in Each Round
5 Questions in Each Category

Plus in between rounds, we will have a Beer Bonus round where one team can win a free pitcher of Cass or OB.

We’ll be starting the quiz at approximately 9:00, and it’ll be done before 11:00 so for those of you coming from outside of Gwangan, you can hightail it to your bus or subway to stiff over the taxi drivers–or if you want to keep drinking, nobody’s stopping you.

Following, trivia, come on down for the newest open mic in town starting around 11 p.m.
