A lost weekend, a rosy discoveryOh, about that “Sex and the City” screening and gala that I wrote about in last week’s J-Week and so much looked forward to seeing ...
I dressed up according to the party’s dress code ― the New York look; black dress and beautiful stilettoes ― picked up a friend and headed south to the Ritz-Carlton.
Well, we got stuck for 40 minutes inside a tunnel that was filled with noxious exhaust fumes. Feeling ill, we went back to work and sadly missed the dinner.
We’re not discouraged. This weekend, we plan to check out deejay Max Graham’s party and attend a wine tasting ― if only we can manage to get there on time.
In Korea, wine used to be enjoyed by an exclusive few. But thanks to a handful of fervent wine promoters, who began their careers simply as wine lovers, the number of wine drinkers in Seoul is steadily on the rise.
That’s good news. Koreans are appreciating wine, learning there’s more to life than binge drinking in tents and singing in dark rooms. We’re now enjoying the rosy joie de vivre sipped from a crystal glass.
