On Thursday November 15th at Le Cellier, there is a wine party. Live saxophone music by Frank Lev. Price is 10,000 won to get in. Party starts at 9 pm. Get there early (before 9) to eat some delicious food including Salmon with ginsing and basil (pricey at 27,000 won but worth every won). See Frank's website for directions and phone number of Le Cellier, which is just next to City Hall. Subway exit 6 and cross the street. It's on the second floor.
