Spoon Me is growing, we’re meeting new people and constantly on the move to make more events and expand our menu. Our partners are growing as well, all from the wellspring of our humble little kitchen. In the coming weeks our partners and ourselves will be continuing on though in separating spaces as our organization has acquired a second kitchen, now being renovated in preparation for the Winter Olympics. Then it will be both spaces working at full capacity to meet the need of our visiting patrons.
All that aside, we had great excuses to take a break this weekend. One of ours (“Mark”) exchanged nuptials with his lovely (wife 임예성 Im Yae Soeng) Saturday. Knowing we couldn’t possibly make it to the wedding, we worked doubly hard Friday night and early Saturday morning so we could make it to the reception in the afternoon.
It was a beautiful, sun shiny Saturday afternoon and a perfect day for a wedding. Coincidently, it being the weekend before Halloween Kevin and I would normally have been in full costume, but what with all our busyness, we chose to be easy on ourselves and just dress like grown folks for this Hallows’eve.
The bride and groom were stunningly well dressed, and so was the whole team! Its was great to see everyone outside of the kitchen/office enjoying conversation, family and drinks. The reception was held near 해방촌 오가리 (HBC Ogari) at The Royal which worked out perfect considering the congested streets that would be Itaewon during a Halloween weekend. We were tucked away and not a costumed freak among us ^^
Though we fully intended to rally on into the night and see the rest of our folks that did manage to get into the Halloween spirit, on the way to the bar around 10 PM we ducked into our house just for a little breather and to feed the cats…
Sunday we awoke refreshed.
Though we were sad we didn’t saddle up and ride into the night Saturday, we did realize one thing… Day drinking Saturday and getting to sleep relatively early makes for much more productive Sundays ^^ Lazing around, watching shows and of course eating!
I stopped by Gino’s in Itaewon just to enquire if they could possibly make a pie without cheese. Much to my glee they did, and it was amazing!
I’ve had an undying craving for Pizza for the longest while, and finally I’ve found a place that put some love into making a dairy-free Pizza. Topped with Green peppers, red onions, mushrooms, black olives, garlic I was in heaven. Kevin and I will definitely become regulars ^^
