Work - day 2

For lunch today, a couple of the EA guys took me to a Japanese place downstairs. Then a coffee at Starbucks. Not very "Korean" of us, I guess.
But that night, I checked out traditional Korean barbecue - bulgogi - at a place the woman from the previous night recommended.
After dinner, I went to the Apkujeong neighborhood, known to be the "beverly hills" of Seoul and even has its own Rodeo Drive! The neighborhood was pretty cool. A combination of high-end stores, fancy restaurants, clubs, and a few less-fancy pubs. The main street had runway-type lighting along it. Very cool.
I went into a low-key place first, and asked the bartender for tips. He directed me to Koobar as a good spot, so off I went. Unfortunately, since it was Tuesday, the place was basically empty - me, plus two small groups. But clearly the place goes off on the weekends. It's a cavernous room with bars at either end, a dj booth, and a wrap-around second floor balcony over looking the lower floor. Oh well, big day of meetings tomorrow so it's just as well that it wasn't happening. I had a beer and watched the Uruguay versus Japan game on the plasma screen, then headed home.
