I live right near Our Place, and would love to attend. (Though we may be in Lake Placid that week.) Please keep the information coming.

Our Place has some great soup dumplings, terrific slippery chicken and some very good Szechuan dumplings.

Look forward to meeting others.
Tengo.

EK -- you may order anything you like and I can't wait to share it in NYC. I had to get a take-out order of red-cooked pork day after Thanksgiving so I didn't have to eat turkey 2 days in a row.

Tengo -- hope you can come.

Bob & Karen -- we'd love to meet you two. We are visiting NJ from CA and on a tight schedule, korean bbq dinner is already arranged with close friends who can't do lunch.

Editor Katie -- can you come?

Ok, while I likely live closest to Our Place, we won't be able to make Wednesday the 26th. We will be in Lake Placid and returning home that day.

Not to rock the boat but, is there any way to move it to the following day, Thursday the 27th or the 28th?

Thanks
Tengo

EK and cruisinred -- what are your availability on 12/27 or 12/28?

DH and I will try to change our schedule and let you know.

Hi Shanghainese, thanks for the tip about this post!

As you mentioned, lunch on the 26th isn't good for me, either. Any time on any following days is fine, though!

Mmm, red cooked pork!!
