Fusion Bar: Under the Sea!
Went to a pretty unusual bar last night, located in Sinchon. The theme of it is "under the ocean"! The name of it is... Fusion something bar (don't quite remember).. It's in the area of Sinchon on the way to Yonsei, on your left going from the Rotary.

The interior is all curved white forms, that I think are supposed to be coral, and you sit at a table with an island panorama under the table glass.

There's lots of fruit, sides like fried chicken, beers, and soju cocktails!
I got peach last night; it's good!

^ The ceiling has panels with running water going through them.

There were lots of big drunk Korean groups.. with quite a few empty soju bottles on their tables ;)

This is.. ahh... interesting
very purposeful use of color. ^_^;;

The beer pitcher that they brought us was hollowed out in the middle and had a base to make it look higher and bigger (a common practice in Korean bars). BUT, they had put dry ice in the middle, and the vapors came out of a pipe at the top of the pitcher.

We are confused, but happy.

There is a hiphop dance club located IN Sinchon, the area where we live! It's called Zen, and the cover charge is just 3,000 won ($3). It is practically right across the street from our living-tel. However, it doesn't get busy until around 12. We got there around 11:20 and were the first people on the dance floor. American trendsetters!

There were actually quite a few Americans at the club last night.. you could tell from (a) their whiteness/blackness (b) their loud, low-pitched voices, (c) their FREAK dancing! Haha, Koreans need to be very drunk to indulge in such non-conservative behavior...

We were proud to be Americans. 2 days till the 4th of July!
