CHINESE FEAST...Christmas Day (WEDNESDAY Dec 25th, 2013 AT 1:30PM )

Merry Christmas EVERYBODY!!


I have just reserved 30 places for Christmas Day 2013...COME ONE, COME 30!!

We have been here for the past 2 or 3 years and the food just gets BETTER AND BETTER!

Normally, we have 3 tables of 10 (divided into 2 spicy and 1 non-spicy preferences) Each person picks a different dish and we just share everything and split the bill at the end!

See you there!!

    Lunch at Royal Sichuan on Christmas Day is becoming an institution in the Ethnic Dining meetup, and rightly so. Thanks to Rodney Haas for starting this tradition three years ago, and to Laura and Anthony for continuing it. I can't imagine Christmas Day anymore without going to Royal Sichuan.

    Last 2 years, I had attended this Christmas lunch event. It is kind of special for me especially no family in Texas. This year I am on the BIG waiting list. I am glad John can set one at 11:30 am. So who are still on the BIG waiting list might have a chance to celebrate the special HOLIDAY with others :-)

    I looked online at the menu and it looks great. I counted about 10 responses for non-spicy....but I need non-spicy also! Laura---will that work out?

    1 · December 21, 2013

    • Anthony & L.

      I'm sure that they can slip one more around the non-spicy table!

      December 21, 2013

  • Anthony & L.

    Okay, People...we are all adults here. So, that being said, those who are not happy with a 1:30pm time, please step-aside to allow those who wish to come to a 1:30pm meal, come! However, in-order to show respect to GREAT restaurants, I do expect all that have signed up to attend, either my, Danitas or Johns events to attend!

    Sorry, I am sticking with the 1:30pm group. Out of respect to the initial organizer. FYI, organizers are not paid to post events and I understand where Anthony and Laura are coming from. I host events for NDSF and Urban Mosaix and this some we want to do to help others. There is more than face value when hosting events such as location, convenience, how the restaurant interacts with guests and organizers, and prices. Anthony and Laura are some of the best organizers out there of all of the groups so when they post, where they post and why they post is based on experience and best for the group and members. Sorry, said my piece. I feel their frustrations when an event is challenged.

      this has nothing to do with you changing out to 11:30 am for the 1:30 pm meetup. the wait list people are free to join or anyone else who has gone the last two years earlier. John there was not challenge just the original time of the Christmas that I could arrange people who has something else to do a in their schedule. There is no frustration people who went might to go at the original time. That's all.

    The 11:30 Am for 10 people is set. I just confirmed it with the manager as this is the tradition we set for the last 2 years. I like the earlier. Just finished talking to the manager 17:14 hrs today.

      And as far as being permitted to attend, I only attend the one's that I am interested in. Not sure why you are offended

      Glad we understand one another. Now, STOP making comments on this thread.

    Why did you book so late, I remember that we did 11:30 the last two years. For those on the wait list we can meet at 11:30 am as we did the last couple of years. Let me know!

      We have 3 people we need 7 or we just sit at a smaller table. I am keeping the manager in the loop!

    Anyone on the wait list not have a Christmas meeting earlier as this was the original plan with two years ago as I remember and last year. Those on the wait list can join. Sorry for any inconvenience to those who do not like me. We are only meeting for dinner or a meal!

    There have been some who join meetup not to mix and mingle but hang out. This was like this last year and people at the center table noticed it. I pay no attention as I am there to mix and mingle. I belong to many meetup groups, meet a lot of people and not everyone is going to like you or me. It is Christmas so we should celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    From my impression if one called they could get the party moved to the more traditional time of 11:30 Hrs not the new traditional time of 13:30 hrs

    December 16, 2013

    • Anthony & L.

      Hey, John, you have your little group all set, NOW time to keep your comments to yourself! Grow-up, Man!

    According to the restaurant they have 11:30 am open but how many people we had 3 tables last year the center one and the two near the window.

    December 16, 2013

  • Anthony & L.

    Regarding the 1:30pm start, it's all they had! Guessing they have other bookings before. Anyway, if the time is too late, please drop out so others who want to attend, can!

    For those on the waiting list: I reserved dinner for 30 at Jeng Chi on Christmas Day at 4pm. It's under Suggested Meetups. I'm new at this so let me know if I need to do anything else!

      We definitely need a separate meeting for it, how can I make that happen?

      December 12, 2013

    • Anthony & L.

      Danita I have opened a separate Meetup for this event! You can act as moderator! Cheers.

    Is there a way to suggest an alternate Meetup for those on the waiting list? For example, RA Sushi Bar & Restaurant has a Christmas Day happy hour 4-11pm http://www.rasushi.com/home?noFlash=1

      I would like to suggest (not host) Jeng Chi Restaurant (http://jengchirestaur...­) for those who are on the waiting list. Their shrimps are fresh (not frozen), clam soup - really authentic; vegetarian steamed dumplings - my favorite, even millet soup is great...
