Endless Sundays at HQ Gwangan – Beach Games and Free Live Music! @ HQ Gwangan

Endless Sundays at HQ Gwangan - Beach Games and Free Live Music! @ HQ Gwangan

Starting Sunday, April 30th, HQ Gwangan is putting on a new monthly concert series we’re calling “Endless Sundays”. The idea behind it is that we’ll do a beach game tournament in front of the bar on the sand in the early afternoon, and then we’ll bring everyone in, get some food, and listen to some of the best live music this town has to offer.

So for the games, we’ve got a BEACH CORNHOLE TOURNAMENT!

드넓은 광안리해변과 아름다운 광안대교가 한 눈에 들어오는 웨스턴 감성의 바 HQ광안점에서 4월 30일 일요일 HQ의 새로운 이벤트 시리즈 “Endless Sundays”가 처음으로 진행됩니다!

이번에는:
2시 해변 콩주머니 던지기 토너먼트
7시 무료입장 라이브공연: 레게 팀 ‘해피피플’ & 달콤한 트리오 ‘초콜릿벤치’

Get a team of two together and come in to HQ Gwangan from 1:00 to 2:00 to sign-up–it’s 10,000 per player, and that gets you 2 free cocktails made for you on the beach (or 2 Budweisers/Cafris, if you want to go that route). The tourney will get underway at 2:00. If you’ve never played Cornhole before, don’t worry because it’s easier than basic arithmetic and more fun than basic arithmetic! And the winning team gets a Jameson bottle set!

And after the tournament at 7:00 as the sun goes down, we’ve got LIVE MUSIC FROM CHOCOLATE BENCH AND HAPPY PEOPLE!

이른 오후 광안리해변 위의 CORNHOLE TOURNAMENT (콩주머니 던지기)에 참여해보세요! 두 명이 짝을 지어 이인 일조가 팀을 정한 후 인당 만원의 참가비와 함께 1시에서 2시 사이에 HQ로 오셔서 예약을 하신 분들에 한해서 참여가 가능합니다. 참여하시는 분들은 해변에서 즉석으로 두 잔의 칵테일 혹은 두 병의 맥주가 무료로 제공됩니다. 누구나 참여 가능하며 콩주머니 던지기를 처음 분들도 망설이지 마시고 참여해보세요! 최종 토너먼트에서 이긴 팀에게는 재임슨위스키 한 병을 증정 해드립니다! 다양한 국적의 외국인들과 겨루며 갖은 종류의 술과 음식은 물론 바에서 준비된 라이브공연도 놓치지말고 함께 즐겨보세요!

공연은 무료입장 7시 시작
레게 팀 ‘해피피플’ & 달콤한 트리오 ‘초콜릿벤치’

= Happy People / 해피피플 =
Born out of a shared love for music of the American South and the Caribbean and roots reggae in particular, to share positive energy, and adhering to the belief that those who embrace the value of simple lives are happier, they’ve called themselves Happy People.
“흑인음악 동아리 ‘리드머’와 버스킹을 통해 서로 음악이 마음에 들어 팀을 만든 이들은 레게의 뿌리인 루츠레게에 다가가고자 한다. 단순하게 사는 삶의 가치를 안다면 사람이 더 행복해질 것으로 생각해 긍정적인 에너지를 주고자 팀명을 ‘해피 피플 / Happy People’이라 정했다.”
https://www.facebook.com/wuukkun

= Chocolate Bench / 초콜릿벤치 =
A rush of sweet melody, Chocolate Bench is a trio that sounds like young romance.
“달콤한 멜로디에 잠시 앉았다 가요. 당충전 200% : ‘초콜릿벤치”

HQ Gwangan Trivia Night @ HQ Gwangan

HQ Gwangan Trivia 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.

Goodbye, HQ Kyungsung: An Official Wake/4th Anniversary Party @ HQ Kyungsung

Yep, guys, this is it… I don’t even want to type the full ‘goodbye’ schpiel right now, but i’ll get to it in the next day or two. But Thursday, May 4th is the day we’ll bid adieu to one of Busan’s longest-running expat bars, HQ Kyungsung. Some basic things we’ll have on tap–

Cheap-as-hell alcohol… because we’ve got to get rid of it!

Dumb bar games that we’re still figuring out

Eulogies from HQ employees/customers/owners past and present

Tears, tears, and MORE TEARS!

No food whatsoever… bring your own stuff and we won’t even bat an eyelid

So yeah, more details to come, but this is it. Oh, and nobody has work the next day, so we’ll stay open until you all leave or are murdered.
