What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

just about everything except sea slugs, of which I've had plenty at official PRC banquets.

How would you describe your level of Chinese? (Eg it's my native language OR I don't speak it OR I learned some dialect from my family but little Mandarin, OR I can speak a few words, simple conversations, etc.)

Solid upper intermediate Chinese - have used in business and diplomatic work.

What kind of events and activities would you be interested in? What would you like to do at our events?

free discussions, lectures, cultural activities (movies, exhibits), and, of course, dining

What could this group provide for you that no other Meetup could?
