September 24 was the second annual Seoul FC Expat Festival. For only 10,000 won ($10), foreigners got a ticket to a soccer game along with a free beer (a warm can of Max) and a free hotdog (soggy with relish = gross). Despite the disappointing food and drink, it was a fun time.

We got there early and checked out all the booths that were set up outside the stadium. We took advantage of the free face painting, airbrush tattoos, and fried chicken.

Then we went inside and found our seats. The game wasn’t terribly exciting as FC Seoul destroyed the Daejeon Citizens. But we had fun cheering anyway.

Afterwards we headed to Itaewon for more food and drinks. We had dinner at Los Amigos (not recommended) and drinks at Una (a really cool bar!).

Daniel didn’t come because he was sick so I stopped off at Taco Bell before coming home to bring him three crunchy beef tacos… just the cure for an upset stomach. That little trip however ended up costing me an extra $20… I missed the last train home and had to pay an outrageous fee for a 20 minute SHARED taxi ride (the driver made $55 total on what should have cost $10)… My friend left right before I did and made the last train.  It was a shitty end to the night but oh well.
