Hello - Annyong - Happy Friday!
Welcome to our new & long-time members! This email was planned to be sent on Monday or Tuesday, but things got busy. How is your week ending?
This weekend is our holiday party
- stop on by tomorrow night for some fun times & food & more! 30+ RSVPs so far: Holiday Dinner Party - Korean Food & Ceramic Painting
. If it's your first meetup, we'll make everyone comfortable. Plus, you get to watch us paint or paint your own pottery. Afterwards we will head to Cosi. See you there!
And at last weekend's Club Night At Muse
I spoke with Joseph, the organizer of the DC Go/Paduk Club
. We discussed having a joint meetup. Paduk, or Baduk, is the Korean name for this ancient game, which looks like Othello (or "Reversi" for computer gamers) but is harder. I learned how to play the game at one of the DC Go/Paduk
meetups this fall, and it was great.
And does anyone know the Korean joke referenced in this article
: "...life in your 20s passes by at 20 kilometers-per-hour, slow as a turtle, while your physical and mental state is turbo-charged to take control of life. Then in your 30s, it travels at 30 kph; in your 40s at 40 kph and so on and so on.
