Plan on arriving early to allow for weekend parking or if you are not familiar with Chinatown. If you take the Metro to Union Station, it's about 1/2 mile walk to the Meeting Point. Master Chef will validate for parking in the Bamboo Plaza lot, but if with the walking tour, it might exceed the time and cost something additional. You might find street parking if you are lucky...
Meet at 8:15pm in front of the restaurant and then at 8:20pm we will begin our walk/stroll around the streets and towards the plaza of Chinatown. Decades ago, on weekends, the streets were so filled with tourists, it would be wall to wall people. You could not walk the streets of Chinatown at a normal pace as there'd be so many people everywhere. Today, it's not so busy and much more enjoyable to explore the streets and shops of Chinatown.
Bring your camera, it is a fun way to explore Chinatown. We can share our images during dinner. We might get them to waive corkage.
You can skip the walk if you wish and just meet us at 9:15pm. Please comment if you plan on attending the pre-dinner exploration.
Meet at 9:15pm back at the Master Chef Restaurant in case you get separated from the group or you wanted to explore on your own and we will order at 9:30pm which is the start of the Late Night Menu where we save a few bucks. Dinner will be a 11 course meal. Yes sir... there is a method to my madness!!! You will have walked/exercised for an hour before dinner so you deserve to eat GOOD this evening! After dinner, another option is to head back to the Central Plaza and to the Via Cafe which is a hipster cafe/restaurant where we could get some hot coffee drinks, tea, desserts along with free wifi to share your images on Meetup/Facebook or Twitter if you wish.

It is not a good deal for Peking Duck here as they don't include the duck meat when you order Peking Duck here. So, it is a much better deal to get a whole roast duck.
