I can do King Yum on the 18th but not Jade Island on the 13th. So I'll see everyone on Friday the 18th. I'll take the afternoon off work so I can get into the city in time.

Okay, so Jade Island on 13th, and King Yum on the 18th.

I know I've been the flakiest NY TCer lately, but both dates are good for me.

Hi

FYI - all are welcome to this.

1/13/08 - Jade Island with Mr. Ho and Tabuzak and two of our friends. (party of 4 so far...)
Arrive 8pm.

If you want to go, please call Jade directly, and add your numbers to the 8pm Brian-for-4 reservation. Please arrange your own transportation (we're covered/full already). I'll bring some vinyl and CDs if anyone is interested.

Okonkuluku!

CaptainQuad and I are still up for doing this at lunchtime, but unfortunately 8:00 is a bit late for us, since we're facing a long drive home and he has to work early Monday AM.

Is anyone still up for lunch? We got the feeling last night most weren't...

While we originally wanted to do it at lunchtime,
we now need the daytime hours to apartment hunt.

We are going to add ourselves to the 8pm reservation
that Mr. Ho/Tabuzak arranged and join them at that time.
I realize it is a bit late for some folks.
But we will need a couple of stiff drinks in the eve
after a weekend of apartment hunting!

Then we'll plan on seeing everyone on the 18th at King Yum. Best of luck with the apartment hunting, Kiki and Fang!

Sad news about King Yum- the 87 year old owner, Jimmy Eng passed away on
New Year's Eve. The funeral is Sunday, January 14.

We will have to drink a toast to him on our journey there next Friday Jan. 18
and hope his surviving family keeps the restaurant running into the future.

I'm so sorry to hear that. Thanks for letting us know.

I heard the news about King Yum's owner last night from Brother Cleve.
He had seen the obituary. I'm glad Tikilicious'and Steve's Mom got
to see Jimmy Eng at Christmas time. He remembered her from her
childhood visits to the restaurant.

A weird note is on local am (yes am ) radio King Yum throws on ads about coming out to see Jimmy. And for New Years they had a Price Fixed New Years Eve celebration going "with noise makers and food" - just an odd note to share.

I hope to make it by on Friday eve later than Dinner (so drinks for sure) - we'll see! -

If you are wondering about why I listen to AM -its for traffic reports driving in and out of NYC.

What time are people supposed to meet at King Yum this Friday?
Do we need to make a big reservation for dinner?

Just to complicate things more - Nicole and I may actually be in town on Friday night after all and would like to join the fun.

We have to go up to New England, but we are starting to think we should go Saturday morning instead of Friday afternoon - after all, when will have the chance again to meet up at the Yum with such a respectable group? And with Kareoke in the house? Very dangerous indeed.

Respectable group? I thought you were going with us!
Would 6:30 work for a starting time?

Count me in for King Yum. Will there be a meet up point in Manhattan for the trip out? cabs? (preferred), time?
