Let's Celebrate Jewish Christmas

Eating Chinese food and then going to a movie is a time honored tradition of my people. This December 25th we're going to have lunch at the Pine and Bamboo Garden, then go see the 2 P.M. showing of the Secret Life of Walter Mitty at the Merriam Town Center Cinemark theaters.

      Yippee!! I'm glad you guys liked it. I thought it was one of the best films I had seen this year. I saw "American Hustle" but "Saving Mr. Banks" was sold out. Got most of the way home and my transmission went out of my Pathfinder. Good thing Mr. Banks was sold out, I guess. Great to meet all of you!

      My car broke down on the way home too! Glad it waited to do it when I was only 3 miles from home...!! The Chinese buffet and the movie were both great. I really enjoyed getting to know everyone. Thank you Robert for hosting this meet up today!

    Hi, I'll join you for lunch. I saw "The Hobbit" last weekend so will be catching a few other flicks instead. Do I ask for the "Cinema" group when I walk in the door?

      The majority of the group is seeing Walter Mitty.

    Since I'm still pretty new to the area and still don't know my way around, I didn't realize that Chinese Palace wasn't close to the theatre. We're now going to China Garden. See the address above.

    Robert not sure if you are aware of this or not, but there is suppose to be a Chinese Buffet in the shopping center by the Cinemark. Also the Palazzo Theatre on 135th and Antioch or the AMC Town Center are closer to the new Chinese place. Just an FYI

    December 24, 2013

    • robert s.

      What's the buffet called and I'll change the location to that place.

      December 24, 2013

    • Bonnie

      Robert it is called China Garden, I looked it up I have not been their but a friend told me it was decent. Fyi, we are going to see Hobbit

  • robert s.

    I just called Pine & Bamboo Garden and found out they are not open tomorrow. I changed the location to the highly rated Chinese Palace. Looking forward to seeing all of you there.

      Ok, I'm 100% definitely coming to the movie part, but not sure if I want to drive all that way for the lunch part. If I don't see you all at the restaurant I'll be waiting just inside the door to the theater and I'll watch for y'all. :)

    I'm in that Jewish tribe too! :) We always used to get Chinese and go to a movie, but I haven't done that in years.
    I'm in! My vote on movies would be Secret Life of Walter Mitty. :)
