We’re setting the Ger-Nis Summer BBQ Bonanza in motion by satisfying our social yearnings with food and a rather personal gathering at the Korean baths in New Jersey, to shed our skin’s dead weight! Let it all hang out at the Korean baths in nearby Jersey, and try something you wouldn’t normally do by yourself! We’ll let off steam at the baths and regain steam with some hotly sought after Korean BBQ. We’ll enjoy the maze of saunas, pools and a steam room offered by the King Spa to discover what it means to bathe like a Korean! The Korean bath experience has a very specific, traditional trajectory with a focus on thermotherapy, skin rejuvenation and purification! There’s no way to bathe in a Korean bathhouse but to strip ‘til you’re bare for the best scrub down and dive into the pool for added properties. Scrub downs result in a literal approximation of 2 pounds of dead skin strewn across the floor! Once we’re all shiny and new, and humbled to boot, we’ll get to the BBQ! Korean BBQ suggests the Korean way of grilling meats, seafood and other such goods, marked by a unique style of marinating and ingredients heavily prevalent in the Korean countryside. When most people think of Korean BBQ, images of ribs arise, so we’ll focus our energies on this fine Korean BBQ treat! We’ll enjoy the Korean BBQ fare at nearby Madangsui in Ft. Lee, one of the best places to indulge in this fine international delicacy! This kick-off BBQ event paves the way for the Ger-Nis Summer BBQ Bonanza weekend, finger lickin’ good! The weekend leaves no BBQ pathways untraveled, exploring the possibilities of barbecued meats, seafood, fruits and vegetables alike- obviously our celebration wouldn’t be complete without stopping to look at Korean BBQ. Eating BBQ might make you want to take a bath, but we’re turning the tables and doing it in reverse, which makes the experience that much more special! Who can resist?
