Andy Nguyen is bridging entrepreneurship and Web3’s digital world by launching his Bored Ape NFT inspired burger restaurant the “Bored & Hungry” in Long Beach, California this Saturday (April 9th).
One of the most sought-after NFT collections in the world, The Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) is a collection of 10,000 unique Bored Ape NFTs powered by the Ethereum blockchain.
Andy’s parents escaped the Vietnam War and immigrated to the U.S. and settled in the Little Saigon neighborhood of Orange County. Before achieving success, the entrepreneur struggled for 12 years, hopping from job to job and venture to endeavor.
The BAYC holder wants to give back to the Web3 community and especially to educate those skeptical that they can create a business from NFTs.
“We’re excited to showcase what you can do with your NFT’s. A project created to bring a real-life experience to web3 and a place for education for those curious about the space. Even if you don’t care about any of that, you can come to enjoy some good food.” Andy Nguyen posted on the AHN Facebook group.
Bored & Hungry, which is also powered by Trill Burgers and Beleaf Burgers, will be offering a free meal to Bored Ape Yacht Club holders and a free burger to Mutant Ape Yacht Club holders, as a token of appreciation to the NFT holders. They will be verified at the token gating.
The grand opening will indeed be grand for there will be also lots of guest performers, activities for the kids, and free gifts for the first 50 customers.
Bored & Hungry is at t 2405 E 7th St. Long Beach and doors will open up at noon.
