Join us for Dim Sum Saturday on Oct. 22

Posted on by admin

Come join us at 11 a.m. Oct. 22 at Joyale Restaurant at 900 S. Jackson Street in the International District inside the Pacific Rim Center. Please note the time change.

As always, friends, co-workers, former co-workers, significant others, kids, out-of-town guests, etc… more than welcome.

This will be the last Dim Sum Saturday of the year, as we break for the holidays.

We’ll all split the check, so please bring cash. Dim sum typically runs about $10-$15 per person — though we’ve been as high as $20 a person when the group has been especially hungry.

Please RSVP to the Facebook event page, so we can keep a rough headcount and know how big of a table to reserve. Hope to see you there!

Please share this event with anyone who might be interested in joining us!

We’re changing the time because the chapter board is meeting at 10 a.m. at Eastern Cafe, 510 Maynard Ave S. Please let us know if you plan to come to that meeting.
