FREE FREE FREE! But you must pay for the meal.
Yes, this valuable training is free if you pay $12 to our wonderful hosts, Peking International Buffet and that covers the meeting room, all you can eat, your drink and the tip. Contrary to a rumor that went around, you MUST pay for the meal to get the meeting free. It is too hard for the servers to figure out who ate.
