Fans of Squid Game will have a chance to play a game inspired by the TV show at Sip House cafe in the University District. On Saturday, October 30, Sip House customers who purchase a Squid Game latte or milk tea (both drinks made with dalgona topping) will be given cards like the ones in the television show, printed with circle, triangle, and square shapes. Players then head to a table stationed by a Pink Guard, and are given a piece of dalgona candy with a random shape. If the player completes the shape in three minutes or less, they win a bottle of Sip House’s latest drink, a panna cotta latte.
Pop-up Sweet Nothings will also be on site with plenty of Halloween pastries and treats, like a Jack Skellington cake, a chocolate almond cake with chocolate mousse, strawberry coulis, and white chocolate.
