I've been out since 9.30 last night watching the Olympics with a group of Chinese boys... Korean pride not welcome.

The one thing that I do enjoy however is the free food. My good friends at Hidden City cater the whole damn shabang and they have really stupendous make your own burritos.
Taco flavored Kisses.
