Yes, I need to learn how to be professional. And how to be kind to my employees.

Dear Shanghainese:

I would like to RSVP for this fine GTG. I even bid for the day off, and got it!! Count me in!! I'll be there between 6:30-7:00 pm

~gt; I may be too chicken to eat the feet, but I'll have to see what else is on the menu!

Melissa- Are you going to be in SF on the weekend (26th/ 27th)? I'd like to meet you and other Fodorites though it's hard for me to get up to SF from San Jose on weekdays (I don't drive).

trippinkpj: You live in San Jose!!!???

I live in the Greater San Jose area also. I'll be picking Melissa up at the airport earlier in the afternoon.

Want to ride with me on the 23rd? We'd love to meet more Fodorites!

Hi easytraveler! Hmmmmmm, that's a very nice offer. Are you picking up Melissa at SJC or SFO? If you could email me at [email protected], we can discuss further.

I just googled the Shanghai house and one of the writers said that to get pig's knuckle one must order it a day in advace....$18.95.

Also it said, cash only, fyi. No credit cards.

trippinkpj: I've emailed you!

valeriesgallery: are you referring to the Examiner review? She sure can write them up! Made me drool for some of those dishes!

Are you in the Bay Area also? Please join us if you can! ><

I'm interested in the pig's knuckles. Anyone else? I'll pre order them if anyone else will eat them with me!

trippin--easytraveler is picking me up at SFO. I will be in San Francisco through Monday, May 28 (I leave at 5:15 PM). On Saturday, the 26th, I have an excursion to wine country with some Hawaii friends. Not sure what the plans are for the rest of the weekend--except running errands for snake bile, fo chong, etc.

LOL Melissa. I am going to check back with easytravel, as I may be able to get a few hours off Wed. afternoon (she would pick me up before she picks you up). I'm not sure if that will work out since I'm the newbie at this job, but I will give it a try.

The pig's knuckle's come in two varieties (both have to be preordered)

a) Salt & Pepper Pig Knuckle

b)Pig Knuckle with Brown Sauce (which is the standard "red roasted" Shanghai variety - i.e., stewed in a soy sauce mixture for hours).

The one that Patricia Untermann, food reviewer for the Examiner, tasted was the first one.

Both are $18.95.

There are also a couple of fish (carp) dishes which have to be pre ordered.

Remember that Faina doesn't eat anything associated with that intelligent mammal, the pig. However, I will eat just about anything but chicken feet, duck feet, blood dishes of any kind (no matter how nourishing), and a bunch of other "exotic" delights. So, I'll be happy to share with you, Melissa, as will Shanghainese in most likelihood. Can't speak for the others who will be joining us, so maybe we should hide away at one corner of the table.

Have car, will travel.

Will bring my slightly larger car that can seat five, as we have to pick up Faina and Shanghainese.

Oh, boy! Is this going to be FUN!

Would you knuck it out

If too many people for your car, Easy, I don't have a problem with taking a bus both ways, it's safe for me, and I'm used to it.
