Thursdays at Speakeasy means trivia night, so get those gears in the brain working. Tonight’s going to be really special because there will be a guest quiz master. Who is it going to be? Yours truly! that’s right, tonight I’ll be giving out the questions. Get a team together of friends (maximum 5) for six rounds of questions. Topics range anywhere from current events, to movies and music. Don’t have a team? Don’t worry! You can find one to join when you get there. It only costs 5,000 won to play, and you’re playing for a chance to win some money and other prizes. The second place team will get there money back, and the winning team will take the rest of the pot. It all starts at 10:00 p.m., but get there early so you can take advantage of the happy hour specials that run from 7:00 p.m., to 10:00 p.m. For more information, please go to Speakeasy’s Facebook page.

Looking for a nice way to end the weekend? Then stop by the Asia Culture Center (ACC)! Some of their current exhibitions include a collection of winners from a Korean painting contest, and A Walk Through the Cosmos-which is billed as the “world’s first walk through cinema”. Kids will also enjoy a mini AR rally in the Children’s area. Plus, there are the beatiful areas outside to walk around. For all the info you need about the ACC, please go to their site.
