After lunch we hoped on the metro in the direction of Costco. We got off the stop before to look around and when we looked at the map of the surrounding area we got really excited, a brewery nearby! We went to the top in search of Oriental Brewery. After searching for about an hour, in the heat, we gave up the search and hoped on the subway to find Costco. A stop later we discovered that Costco was not as close to the metro stop as the website’s map would lead you to believe so we took a 10-minute cab ride there. Costco was not as exciting as I anticipated. Everything was still really expensive. Kelly and I ended up with 6 bell peppers and 48 individually packaged string cheese snacks for 20,950 won (about $18).
After Googleing Oriental Brewery back at the hotel, I discovered that they are actually owned by Anheuser-Busch and brew the lowbrow beers OB Blue and Cass, similar to Bud Light or PBR at home.
After a quick rest, we headed out to the movie theatre at Chungmuro because Kelly suckered me into catching the Twilight movie with her. The show didn’t start for an hour so we walked around a bit before escaping the heat at the Beer Garden (lots of beer, all bottles, no draft, but still a great selection). Then it was on to see Eclipse. I don’t get all the hype. It was okay but I don’t get people who are going to see it repeatedly. Although I did find it funny that the first time Taylor Lautner (Jacob) was show on screen, shirtless, the entire audience giggled. Hehe.
