9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.

I've always wanted to see a Chinese opera and was delighted, even though I could not understand the language. Excellent performances, costumes, and sets.

Description

Led by artistic director Wu Hsing-Kuo, Taiwan’s Contemporary Legend Theatre gives fresh life to traditional Beijing opera. The time is 207 B.C. … As the drama unfolds in Farewill, My Concubine_, arch-rivals — the Chu King Xiang Yu, and Liu Bang of the Han — battle fiercely. Imperial consort Lady Yu seeks to console Xiang with wine and her famous sword dance. In The Tipsy Concubine_, opera master Mei Lanfang’s signature work set in the later era of the Tang Dynasty, the “four flat aria” style is a perfect operatic combination of singing, reciting, dancing, and music.
