I am very sorry to do this, but it turns out I cannot make the 12th. Which means that every weekend in December is unavailable for me. If ya'll still want dinner to be on the 12th we can do it then, but I cannot attend or make the financial arrangements. I would prefer to move it to a weeknight so I can attend. However, I realize that many of you cannot make weeknights. If there is a weeknight the week of December 12 that you can make, please post here or PM me.

I spoke with Aung today about working up a menu--I hope to set a menu and get a price for us in the next day or two.

The 13th or 14th works for me.

Shredded ginger, cabbage, onion tossed with Burmese dressing, garnished with fried garlic, crispy yellow peas and carrots (vegetarian)

If you would like to go, please PM me or post here. I MUST KNOW your plans NO LATER THAN Wednesday, December 8. Please plan to bring cash with you. Beverages and gratuity are not included (I am pretty sure they do not have a liquor license). I'll post attendance lists as people RSVP.

I for one am really looking forward to that pork dish--apparently it's a bit edgy with the bitter melon. Aung asked me, "Are you sure you want to order that?" :hmmm:

Wow, $15! Excellent. I'll have to check with my official scheduler, but I should be in for 2. I'll know by Monday.

Can we bring wine? And if so, any suggestions Mr Rocks/Wabeck/Slater?

In a situation such as this (sour mustard, etc.), I adhere to the principles of Taoism, i.e., Tsing Tao.

Hey guys, not to be a complete wimp or anything, but could I request an even distribution between "medium" heat and "spicy/extra spicy"? I like some zip to my food but don't want to be crying "oh no!" after taking a bite of the PaZun OhnNoh Hin [oh no, "ohnNoh", heh-heh......sorry] :blink:

I have not specified heat levels on any of these dishes. Those who are coming, perhaps you should state your preferences? I can talk to Aung about it when I call him back with a number of attendees.

Is this the traditional final night of Channukah dish :wink:

I'm in, with a possible guest. And I vote for mild heat so we can still taste what we are eating.
