Welcome to Hooters in Seoul!

So, after an awesome time at the concert, we decided to go into Itaewon with Josh (wdwparkboy) and his friend Sudip to hang out and have a beer or two.  We had been outside talking after the concert and the venue was closing and Josh told us cabs go up in price late at night.  That gave us the perfect opportunity to ride the subway for the first time!! It was not all that different than the BART system in Northern California...just only in Korean! LOL. 

We get off the subway and ultimately decide to meet at Hooters so it's easy for Josh's girlfriend to find us!  Hooters in Seoul?!?! You have to be kidding me, right?  Oh no, bright as day on the side of a multi story building.

...there it was!! Not surprisingly, this is a popular hang out in town and it was fairly busy when we arrived.  The restaurant was actually nicer than the ones I have been in as it's on the 2nd story and has a view of Itaewon and of course, looks brand new! 

Josh knew one of the waitresses, so she ended up taking really good care of us.  To keep the orders straight, she puts numbered stickers on you.....in some rather interesting places!! LOL.  Someone (JOSH!) ended up letting it slip it was now my birthday and oh boy....I suffered the most embarassment probably in my life yet.  If you are familiar with Joe's Crab Shack and what they do for birthdays, this was not much better.  I somehow (SOBERLY) got roped into getting up on a barstool in front of the restaurant and flapping my wings like a chicken while they sang happy birthday to me with the whole restaurant to view!  After turning bright red and finishing my debut, I realized whew.

...wasn't that bad and it was all over....or so I thought.  Oh no, I have the everlasting memory because Scott was kind enough to video the entire clip.  Lovely! If I can figure out how to get it uploaded, I will manage to let the rest of the world laugh at my expense!! HAHA. 

It was truly an awesome night and it was great to hang out with Josh, his girlfriend, and friend Sudip.  They were a lot of fun and just further proof of the amazing people you can meet off TravBuddy!  I wish we would've had more time to hang out and I can't say enough thanks to Josh and Sudip for an awesome night!!!
