I will discuss some recent work I have been involved with using bulge globular clusters to better understand this important Galactic component, especially using data from the VVV Survey.  This includes discovering new bulge globulars, investigating dual HBs, obtaining Ca triplet metallicities and velocities, and the curious case of NGC 6791.
