The adventures first… explanations take such a dreadful time.” –Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.


And the adventures we shall share! To celebrate the (un)birthdays of my friends Elizabeth and Ashley, and the farewell of my friend Priscilla, Radio Star was transformed into an extraordinary Wonderland, and the characters of Lewis Carroll’s beloved books came together to drink, be merry… and maybe chop off a few heads.

In the bar, we marveled at Alice’s tear river, the White Rabbit’s house, hanging bulbs, cards, trippy artwork and endless amounts of decor that helped transform the beloved dungeon into the place where magic happens.

My friend Jenny Ryan and I (yes, I know, but if you go to a place where there are people who were born in the 80s, you’re bound to find a few Jennys) made jell-o shots to sell at the shebang. All of the proceeds from the sales and the cover charge at the door were donated to the Jeonju V-Day campaign, helping to raise money for the Jeonju Women’s Shelter. Overall, the team of hard-workers raised over 700,000 won! Epic success.

Jenny and I both donned “Alice” costumes to sell our creations — and they went fast!

Evan dressed as the always-smiling Cheshire Cat …

… who got considerably less smiley (one frowny feline) when I didn’t grab him a beer from the bar.

Everyone really went all-out with the dress-up aspect. It was so much fun to see everyone’s creations!

In fact, Jenny and I had so much fun, that we fell down the rabbit hole… and kept right on falling, down to the disgusting floor in an unfortunate accident involving too many feet in too little space. ICK! Luckily, we thought it was kind of hilarious.

Definitely a party for the Jeonju memory books.
