S.F. Chinatown- Wednesday May 22 10:00 AM

I grew up in the neighborhood. We will Walk the streets of San Francisco Chinatown... Check out Grant Avenue, the main thoroughfare captured in the Indie movie 'Chan is Missing'. We will visit a church that survived the 1906 earthquake. I will explain symbolism in Chinese art and clothing. We will see silk embroidery, go jewelry store window shopping. We will also visit a temple and a fortune cookie factory. We will end with a Chinese lunch shared family style. Please bring $20 cash for the lunch fund. Speak now if you have food allergies or aversions. This is my third such trip with this meet up. I do it because walking in a group beats walking on a treadmill for exercise.

Note: I have room for five people. There will not be a waiting list.

    Obama got Chinese takeout from this place and the buzz never stops boomeranging. They have good food and speak good English. Let's eat!

    Is this still open? I would like to come. I am allergic to gluten. (all white flour or wheat products.)

    The tour itself is free, just want to make clear that the $20 cash listed above is for the communal-lunch fund. Take BART to Montgomery station for simplest transit.
