Seoul Sausage will be offering free sausages at 8:30 p.m. for the first 40 people who come up to their tricked-out Scion and use the password “I Am Major.” Sausages will be sold at regular price afterwards. Cafe Dulce will be providing pastries throughout the night.

Hosted by Will Choi and Keiko Agena, the evening will feature:

– Stand-up by Kyle Mizono
