How I Spent My Chuseok (Or Taking The Old Ladies To Dominick’s)

Can Koreans eat Italian for Chuseok?

Well, we won’t actually eat an Italian, just their meatballs!

Last year for this Korean holiday, the Old Ladies came over for a spread, Tab and Tony came in from the far off land of Jersey, and Matt grilled red snapper.  And, oh yeah, I baked a cake!

But I have a new job and after two years of working part-time, full-time work is kicking my ass.   So how perfect to be able to take the Old Ladies over to Arthur Avenue for a nice Italian dinner.

We had a nice meal over at Dominick’s on the strip of Tony and Tina’s wedding that is Arthur Avenue a few days after Koreans celebrate Chuseok.  I looked into finding a Korean restaurant in the Bronx, but needle in the haystack anyone?  Speaking of which: Koreans at Dominick’s!

Naw, I didn’t feel weird.  I was too busy trying not to trip down their narrow aisle into someone’s antipasti as I was guiding the Old Ladies to our table.  Their tables, set up to share, are really packed in there.  But it did add to the joviality of it all.  Even this non-jovial person had to smile at the good nature of it all.

It's been a hard day's night
