Night out in Apgujeong Rodeo

Apgujeong Rodeo is the Rodeo Drive of Gangnam, if you will. We met up with a group of people at Sunae and took the yellow line all the way. Apparently, a new part of the yellow line has open that extends further north so it took us directly there.

We had a reservation at Zen Hideaway at 8 and we arrived in Apgujeong at 7:30 so we got drinks first. We stumbled upon a very interesting bar.

They brew their own beer. Jim and I don't drink so I don't know personally if it was good, but our friends seemed to like it. Here's a picture of the owner (?) telling us to be careful when you open it. Jay was careful, but there was a learning curve and some people close to this one got sprayed with some beer when he opened it.
 Here's Jay being more careful for the next bottle.

No beer for us, but plenty of bottomless cheese balls!
 We didn't stay long at the bar and we made the quick but cold and icy walk to Zen Hideaway. This is definitely the nicest restaurant we've been to in Korea. The restaurant is beautiful and instead of chairs at the tables they had big, comfy sofas and the food was amazing.

 Everyone ordered "family style" except for me. You know, I'm a picky eater and there were things like Pho and muscles on the menu which most people like but I don't. Well no one ordered those gross things. Fortunately they let me throw my dish in the mix and join the family style and sample everyone's food. There was pizza and pasta and steak and chicken but the best was the pumpkin risotto. It was served in an actual pumpkin.

We were told it was only a 15 minute walk to Just Blues, but it was like 10F and as far as my calculations go 15min x 10F=150 minute walk. So some of us split a taxi! (and Jim and others walked).
The blues band was awesome. According to Kevin Duncan, the singer owns the place and taught himself how to play guitar. Unfortunately we had to get home to the babysitter and we had to leave early. This is a place we will definitely go back to.
Here's why we'll go back and why you should go when you come visit us:
