Zelen wine party

Zaza and I went to the wine party at Zelen, the Bulgarian restaurant in Itaewon, on Friday night. There was a dress code--black. The majority of the people were dressed as advised and a few even put together impressive outfits. Soojin, the owner gave out prizes, including one for the best dressed member of the Zelen wine club.

Early in the evening everyone was behaving themselves, being cordial, and keeping to their own small groups of comrades. As the night continued on, and people took advantage of the all-you-can-drink benefits of the party, people started to be a lot more friendly--A LOT MORE FRIENDLY.

At one point I found myself in a circle of women where one was touching the next inappropriately. And the peak of this bizarre collection of gropes was marked by the tongue of a certain bar owner we all know and love in Zaza's cleavage.
I met a some interesting characters and drank a whole bunch. The night started to get fuzzy, I ended up at B1, then at Queen, then some other random gay bar in Itaewon, and then in McDonald's (I NEVER GO TO McDONALD'S) with Charles and a stolen umbrella (which we returned to its rightful owner). Strange night. Good, but strange.
