Dim Sum, Chau Chow City, Sunday, Sun., 11/14, 11 am

1

Back by popular demand!

Join us for dim sum at Chau Chow City, 83 Essex Street in Chinatown, on Sunday, November 14th at 11:00 am. Friends, significant others, and family members are welcome, too.

If people who attended BloggerCon or any other recent tech conference(s) are present, perhaps we can persuade them to tell us about their travels.

South Station is the closest stop on the Red Line (and may be the closest subway stop). Chinatown is the closest stop on the Orange Line. There is a tiny parking lot very close to the restaurant that is not free. Street parking may be available a short walk away in the financial district. If you could let me know in advance if you plan to join us, that would be very helpful because when we get to the restaurant, we can put in a request for a table if we know how many are coming.

Dim sum is Chinese food that some people think is quite tasty. It’s often eaten for brunch. The Chau Chow City waitstaff roams the restaurant with carts filled with steamed foods, fried goodies, dumplings, soup, seafood, and assorted desserts. Customers select what to eat as the carts pass by. The food is often served in steamer containers with 2 or 3 items per container. Going with a group can work well because there’s more opportunity to share and try different items. It is possible to order from Chau Chow City’s menu.

We’re usually there for a while, so if you can’t join us right at 11 am, it’s okay to arrive a little bit later.

Addendum 11/14: Dim sum was as tasty as always. Seven Nine of us enjoyed gorging on sweets and talking about weblogs. The rumors about us force feeding the vegetarian duck webs is completely untrue. Two special guests joined us.

We knew we could get some rather exotic foods at dim sum. We were surprised by this delicacy. Nonetheless, the Dowbrigade eagerly digs in.
