Chopsticks Bar & Lounge to Offer Korean Fusion, Shark-Defense Tactics

File under noticed in K-Town: Here, we have a soon-to-open restaurant called Chopsticks Bar & Lounge, adorned with a simple drawing that illustrates its interior workings. It may be a bit hard to make out the details, but from the looks of it, this restaurant will specialize in allowing its customers to pilot an enormous mecha-crab that fires chopsticks (duh) from its pincers, which in turn can be used to battle ferocious sharks. According to a rep, the subterranean Chopsticks will play Korean pop classics and serve "Korean-American fusion" when it throws open its porthole-windowed doors in three weeks’ time.
