This weekend, Evan, Greg, Rachel and I went on a mission up to Seoul for Global Gathering 2010 — a huge electronic music festival held at Hanji Park next to the river in Seoul. The all-night event, in a matter of words, was epic. The first time I have really danced my pants off since […]

Last weekend, my girlfriends and I decided to escape to the big city for two whirlwind days of shopping, foreign food and live music. I awoke early on Saturday morning to catch a bus to Seoul with my friends Rachel and Jenny Ryan. We headed straight for Hongdae upon our arrival, and dropped our bags […]

So after our successful Taco Bell stop in Seoul, Evan and I met up with my college friend, who lives in the city. One of her pals threw a soiree, so we grabbed some wine and headed out toward Hongdae. Hongdae, for those of you non-Koreans readers, is a university area in central Seoul that […]

No, Kim Jong Il hasn’t recruited me to do any work for the North Koreans — I’m staying as far away from that border as possible. I’m talking TB baby, the one run I could never resist, whether it be early in the morning or late night in Long Beach, zooming through the drive-thru to […]
