    Ensure to get permission to bring food from other vendors that are not inside the "beer tent (BT)." They don't allow food from other vendors because they sell food inside the BT. Yesterday a group of 7 people were not allowed in the BT because they had purchased food from other KORUS vendors.

      Thanks for the heads up Nelson. They didn't give us any trouble last night, but maybe there is a new policy this year. I'll double check when I get there and post an update.

      This is confirmed, no outside food in the beer tent. They only have a little food there, so instead let's try for seating area 4. Thanks Nelson! :-)

    Our weekly dinner will be at KORUS Festival tonight. We will be in seating area 5 ("the beer tent"). All ages welcome, just need an ID to drink. RSVP here for more info http://kwav.es/1C0gnyw­.

      They sell some food there or you can buy from the other vendors (I like the 닭갈비­ dakgalbi place!) and bring it over.

    Are we participating only on Friday as a group, or is there any option for Saturday or Sunday?

    1 · September 8, 2014

    • Jason West 서.

      There is no formal group plan, we will have members there all weekend. You can post your individual plan here to try and coordinate with other members. Also, stop by the HQ booth to meet some of our members volunteering.
