The Chicago Chinatown Chamber of Commerce has invited us to the 2013 Dragon Boat Race for Literacy, which is held annually on the Chicago River at Ping Tom Park. We will meet at 3:30 pm at Cai and head over to Ping Tom Park (Wentworth and 18th) together to watch final races before coming back to Cai for an early dinner.
According to Time Out Chicago, "The chef at this ornate dinner-and-dim sum spot, Xi Xin Lin, has a mystical way with creamy egg-yolk buns, delicate free-form dumplings stuffed with shrimp and dried scallop and steamed rice-noodle crêpes paired with crunchy bits of celery. This is classed up dim sum at its most traditional, mirrored by the over-the-top, glitzy, gilded look of the second-story restaurant, making it a favorite pick for Chinese wedding banquets."
