Special Chinese New Year's Eve Dinner at Asian Aroma (Customized Menu)

A special gathering to celebrate the Chinese New Year - 年夜饭 (nian2 ye4 fan4/New Year's Eve dinner), the biggest event every single Chinese family will have - gather together on 除夕 (chu2 xi1/New Year's Eve) and enjoy special food such as fish, nian gao(年糕/New Year's cake), which has symbolic meaning for fortune for the new year. We are glad to announce that Asian Aroma has worked with us to provide a customized menu for our group for the special occasion this year! The menu below is priced at $25 per person, which includes all taxes and tips. We will have two round tables, each table will have the following set of dishes and exact 8 adults per table (optimal seating arrangement) so total bill will come to $400 all inclusive for 16 adults. If you are bringing your kids, please email Cynthia for special arrangement, the number of kids should not be counted towards the 16 adults. 鸡茸鲜虾玉米羹 (Chicken Shrimp Corn Soup)
清蒸海上鲜 (Steamed Whole Fish - Sea Bass or similar)
明炉烤鸭 (Roast Duck)
鲜茄虾球 (Shrimp Ball)
火腿肉树鸡 (Chicken w/ Ham Pieces)
豆角肉丝 (Green Bean Pork)
红烧茄子 (Braised Chinese Eggplant)
八珍豆腐煲 (Eight Treasure Tofu Stew)
清炒芽菜 (Stir Fried Bean Sprouts)
清炒时菜 (Stir Fried Chinese Broccoli or by request)
贺年年糕 (New Year's Cake) Dinner comes with unlimited White Rice, Tea, Sweet Tea or Soft Drinks (Alcohol drinks are not included in the price).

Tricky part is the payment, to avoid paying for extra online transaction fee and to save money for everyone, we will spell out the rules here:

- If you are sure to join us, please RSVP before 7pm, Feb 9th, Tuesday
- Instead of charging you ahead of time, we will trust you with your commitment since a 50% deposit ($200) will have to be sent to Asian Aroma on Feb 10th
- Bring cash when you attend dinner and remember, if you don't honor your RSVP, or have a change of plan after RSVP is closed, and we can't find people to fill your spot, you will be liable for the $25.
- If we can't get enough folks to sign up, we will try to see if we can work out an alternative with Asian Aroma, but there's a chance that we may have to cancel this event in case of lack of participants. Look forward to seeing you at Asian Aroma on Chinese New Year's Eve, we will host a raffle again, we won't be able to watch CCTV new year special but the big screen will at least have the sports channel on. This year the Chinese New Year of the Tiger, Feb 14th, happens to be Valentine's Day, and it will be a fun time to take your loved ones with you to celebrate the double happiness and enjoy some traditional food for the new year! P.S. If you have any dietary request, or ideas please let us know, we will still have time to negotiate with the restaurant before sending them the deposit!!!

    Nora & Sharon, I see that there are two spots left, let me know if we need to fill those spots due to finances. I can always extend the invite to a friend or two. Not a big deal on my part, but given the focus on payment in the description above, I thought I'd ask. Looking forward t celebrating Chinese New Year tomorrow.
