2023 is coming!!!!
« on: December 30, 2022, 12:07:29 pm »
Another new year is almost upon us. Does anyone have any plans for this weekend?

I'll be ringing in the new year at home with a bottle of wine. If we open the bottle late enough, I'll be able to make it to midnight. Sunday will be spent going for a hike in the afternoon. Late enough to miss all those first sunrise hikers.

A dry NYE (wife's working), but having a bit of a Do on Sunday.

All the best to everyone for 2023.

At some point this winter vacation I'm going to be up in Seoul. What are your recommended bars? I'm looking for good beer but also a comfortable space to enjoy a few quiet afternoon drinks.

I think it's great that your girlfriend takes your step child on vacation.  Doesn't your wife find this unusual, though?

Also, I can't believe you gave permission for your step child to go to Bangkok, considering your opinion on the place.

My favourite places are Dalmaek Super in Itaewon. Good bottle selection and heated tent area to drink. They have a bunch of domestic cans and are cheaper than Woori Super (which is 3 mins away).  https://naver.me/Gqse6CsG

Chillhops Itaewon Project: Aussie beer in Itaewon. I'm good friends with the head brewer and his beer is KICKASS. If I had a mentor for brewing in this country, it would be him. Great fruited sours and great tropical pale ales.  https://naver.me/x8B5dXhM

Art Monster Gangnam: This place has the trend factor down pat nand it's a self pour/bracelet system. Pour how much you want yourself, they scan the bracelet at the end. Really great atmosphere and the brewery has won more Asian Beer Awards than God. https://naver.me/x1egDw9P

Ash Tree: Great British style pub in Gwangjin-gu (Geondae): They have the only cask ale pump in the country. Great saisons (house yeast) and some really cool recipes like a dark IPA that is KILLER. https://naver.me/FxLgOgMG

The Ranch Euljiro: Fred makes some really solid beers (Morning Calm IPA) and his beers are pretty standard styles but they're all super clean. He's not reinventing the wheel (like Chillhops) but this is a great place for solid, normal beers done really well. Also, they have Detroit style pizza and it's good. Great for atmosphere, too. https://naver.me/IMQpV9To

F off. hahahahahahaha

Regardless, she had vacation days to use before the end of the year so this was last chance corral.

Those referring to their gfs child as their step child should get married in the near future. Why not? Gfs parents are still opposed?
None of your goddamn business, honestly.

Thanks for the list. Might need to give more than one a visit. Responsibly of course.

Hahaha.  You need to give the Big Mango a chance.  I'm thinking of heading there or Florida in February.  If my GF can't come along you should join me.  Plenty of opportunities to get more views while you take the channel on vacation.  And I don't hang out on Khao San Rd. or Nana when I go there.  (Actually, I go to both but I don't want LI knowing.)

Having a cold one now. My wife postponed our get-together today until vacation time...just too stuffed after working last night. She was busy as. She's just consumed 1/2 a bottle of soju and has already hit the sack to watch TV. A bit of a lightweight these days  :laugh:

Billy, I'm going to get fitter and more muscular than I've ever been before. Going to make 75 kg by August. I'll be ripped at 62! Already dusted off the home gym and hauled the bag back up...just can't run.
