Screen Golf!

A favorite pastime of many a Korean businessman is screen golf.

Like PC bangs of yesteryear, they seem to have sprouted one on every corner.

The cool ones serve drinks, and for the right price also can serve as a defacto room salon.

We went to one yesterday during the Great Waeg Weekend of fall 2010.

We had a few beers and played for a few hours.  Being mostly married dudes with kids, we decided to forgo the female companionship.  Maybe if The Horn Dog and Justin the Muffin had come, it might have been different.  They are both single with too much money and too little sense.  Guess hanging out with married guys isn't their cup of tea.

A lot of people like to bet on the action.  Of course, we never even considered engaging in such behavior, being upstanding citizens and all.  Generally, Korean dudes use it as a place to network and make deals.  If you want to do business in Korea, they are good places to become familiar with.

If you haven't tried it, I'd recommend it at least once.
