Chinese New Year All Members Celebration-China Garden Dim Sum

Happy Chinese New Year - The Year of the Horse

Xinnian Kuai Le!

Dear Members,

This is a happy time to celebrate! Renew old friendships and meet new friends! Let's celebrate the Chinese New Year with great fanfare!

Our annual event is for beginner, intermediate, advanced and native Mandarin speakers. Everyone is welcomed! Enjoy delicious dim sum, drink hot tea, and enjoy the Chinese culture. We look forward to a wonderful turnout of 150 members! Bring family and friends!

We have tables reserved at China Garden in Rosslyn, VA. Each table will share the final bill so please bring money in small denominations. We will also have tables marked Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced/Native Speaker, and Vegetarian Table.  Wear Chinese-style clothes if you have it, red for good luck!

Fee: $1.00 per person

Our goal: To collect $150.00 for the Meetup website so there will be NO fees charged for any of our regular events for the rest of the year.

The Leadership Team wishes you an abundance of good fortune, excellent health, and prosperity and good luck in the Year of the Horse!

    That was mine. However, I am not traveling all the way back to the restaurant just to get the gloves. Thanks - Anyway, 恭喜發財!

    Was anyone missing their gloves? Restaurant staff found a pair after the meetup, and Evelyn decided to leave them with the restaurant in case the owners came back for them.

    We have 11 tables but the manager said late walk-ins are still welcomed, so still not too late to bring your Valentine, Significant Other, or just a bunch of good friends:)!

    Please update your Rsvp - I have to finalize count tomorrow to China Garden. It's the day after Valentine's Day, so bring your special someone and your friends to celebrate Chinese New Year!

    If you'd like to have your own Reserved Table so your family and friends can sit together, let me know so I can make a sign for you.

    OK, then I will attend. I was worried I would be the only beginner-ish speaker in a table of advanced and have no one to talk to.

    Hi Susan,
    On second thought, we can have tables for Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced also. This way, everyone can practice speaking...which is one of the main goals of our group. Thanks for nudging!

    Will the tables be organized by Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced? Or is it every man for himself? Thank you.
