Central Park+free korean food+a most awesome summer evening

August 1, 2010 |  Category:   friends life nyc

This was my Friday:

Perfect 82 degree weather, no humidity (we were owed this one, for suffering through all of July).

A Korean Day Festival in Central Park. Drumming, music, a five foot circumference bowl of bibimbop (what?). Kalbi and Kimchee tacos, Korean Fried Chicken, Rice Cakes, Noodles, Aloe Juice, Honey Melon popsicles. All free to the public. Leave it to my dad to find any Korean-related event around the tri-state area. Leave it to RJ to drop everything and make a beeline up there as soon as I tweeted about the event. Girl takes her Korean food seriously. Plus she got to meet my dad.

Drinks and food at the Standard in the Meatpacking District with 2 of my favorite ladies in the late afternoon. I ordered the Penny Drop, a delicious gingery concoction made with ginger beer, ginger cordial, lime juice and vodka. (OMG!)

Watching the sunset from the High Line, closing the place down, scheming all sorts of ideas and new business plans. I must have about 100 business ideas that I’ve brainstormed with various people over the years. Yes, the wheels are turning up there…

    I am seriously jealous here. I’ve never seen bibimbap that humungous before! And not cheap and skimpy ingredients either. I’d have to go to korean church here for something even remotely close to this (and I don’t really feel like doing that, church thing). What a gorgeous day, so glad you enjoyed it!

    Your images are divine and your words interesting. I love NYC, I love Central Park, I love Eurasian-ness (being Eurasian myself) but what made me decide that I HAD to comment was the picture of the oysters. I LOVE oysters. V lovely blog you have here 🙂
