Koreatown

Monday, November 30th, 2009

On Monday we sought out a restaurant in Koreatown here in New York. The food was not awesome, the decorations were. There was also traditional Christmas music in the background but sung in Korean and with Korean pop-music effects. It was an experience.

Good Times

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Last Friday my brother, soon to be sister in law, and some other friends enjoyed a late night sushi dinner that lasted till 1 A.M. Dinner was accented by an abundance of amazing sushi, 2 incredible wines, and such fun conversation. Food and drink bring it all together. Sitting in bars is fun, sitting around a table is better.
