Thursday Party BBQ!

My two friends Crystal and Anne have headed up a once a month BBQ / potluck type thing for local English teachers, at a place called Thursday Party at Gwangali Beach! They have become good friends with the owner and the bartenders, and have somehow convinced them to allow us to take over the place, before it officially opens on Sunday's, for these BBQ's! I'm not sure how, but I'm glad they did, because it was a blast!

As soon as I got there, I was put straight to work! Crystal and Anne were chopping veggies in the bar kitchen, and before I knew it, I was manning the grill! It was fun to work in a real Korean bar kitchen! It was about the size of a small walk in closet, mind you! Check out these delicious hamburgers that I grilled! :)

Lunch was beyond delicious! We had steaks, hamburgers, hot dogs, salmon fillets, salads, pasta, and fresh bread to chose from! Here's Anne and I, chatting after lunch! While the weather was kinda yucky, you still can't beat lunch with a beach view!

My friend Chooch was there, who I met at orientation when I first arrived in Korea! He is married to a gorgeous Korean woman, and this is their incredibly handsome son, Hyden! (I think that's how you spell it) I asked Chooch if he had seen the movie "Sweet Home Alabama," because one of my favorite lines is when Reese Witherspoon says, "You have a baby... in a bar!" Totally made me think of that when Hayden was playing on the floor while all the adults were hanging out! To Chooch's credit... this may make him sound like a bad dad, but he is, in fact, one of the most amazing fathers I've seen to date! So caring, loving, and fun!

The guys who work at Thursday Party in Gwangali are all so nice, and so sweet! They let us completely take over the place, and helped us with whatever we needed! :) True gentlemen!
There were many more picture opps, but unfortunately, my camera battery died! I know, I know... I will eventually learn my lesson to charge it before I leave the house!
