Chinese Year of The Snake

This evening will be a shared banquet in the festivities with the LA Foodies and LA Asian Foodies!

When: 7:00pm Doors open Social time & sign in. Pop a cork and relax a bit before dinner 7:30pm Begin Dinner Service

We will also have max 10 per table, so if you are at a table that will have 9 or less per table, I might need to subtract a dish (but you'll get more of each dish) to enjoy and more elbow room.

The restaurant will waive corkage fees so please feel free to bring a bottle of wine, sparkling wine or champagne. If you don't bring wine, but share someone's bottle, please offer to pay them for the wine they so generously share with you. If you bring wine and wish to be reimbursed... if they don't offer, please feel free to estimate a fair cost for sharing your wine. If you wish to not receive any reimbursement, you have that option as well. I personally like to bring Scotch or a sparkling wine. Chinese New Years dishes nearly always symbolize health, long life and prosperity.

Banquet Menu

  • Sesame Honey Garlic Spareribs
  • Three Flavor (seafood, chicken, bbq pork) Sizzling Rice Soup

I found a positively ancient bottle of Korean Ginseng wine that my folks had that has a HUGE ginseng root in the bottle.. It appears to be at least 30-40 years old! 70 Proof! It may be no good... we'll find out together!

Drinks not listed above add $3.00. If you order a soda/coffee from waiter, please pay the Table Captain $3.00/drink.

Basically this 13 course Chinese banquet includes tea and sodas, free corkage including tax, tip, cc processing fees.

Price: $30.00 per person. If you do not RSVP and wish to pay at the door, the price is $35.00 provided there is a seat available. You MUST CALL DARRELL to check to see if there will be a seat available before 1pm on the day of the event. [masked] This requires a $30.00 prepayment via Paypal and covers the cost of dinner, soft drinks AND tax AND tip. in advance that is 100% refundable if you cancel 5 or more days in advance. 50% refunded if you un-rsvp less than 3 days but more than one day in advance. No refund if you no show or cancel less than 1 day in advance. RSVP's MAY CLOSE FIVE DAYS IN ADVANCE Once all seats are filled - Full Refund may be given if we are able to fill your seat should you un-rsvp in 3 days or less of the event.

If there is a wait list and you prepaid but cannot attend, there's a good chance you will be able to sell your seat. There's plenty of free parking on the street a block away, metered parking, a couple of spots in front of the restaurant and there's a small FREE Hop Li lot across the street for about a dozen cars so early birds might get the great parking spaces. After the first 4 tables fill up, a new table will be opened as soon as there's enough members on the wait list to open another table. Arrive early (7:00pm) for your best parking options. I'll need a few AO/EO's to help out by being table captains and to help with signing in members.

    There are 8 more spots available, and I'm on #8 on the wait list. Is there a way I can pay to secured my dinner spot?

    February 8, 2013

    • Diana

      Hi Yanny, If it shows that spots are still available, you should be able to sign up by clicking on "change my reservation" at the top (from "waitlist" to "yes.") From there, it will take you to Amazon to pay. Hope that helps.
