Okay, this is it!!!!...We have room for 6 hounds at Peach Farm Seafood, in Chinatown, at 7:30 Tuesday night, for a New Years banquet...

They are MY favorite seafood place, and they're offering 5 or 6 special dishes that are special for the New Year. These include dried oyster w/lettuce,(symbolizing wealth), black sea moss,not sure if that was part of the above,(I was on the phone--I'll have more info when the manager calls back.), but it IS traditional..a dish of wood mushrooms and lettuce, and pan fried dried oyster...They also offer the awesome chicken stuffed w/rice that Melanie Wong wrote up on the SF board...I guess it's a whole, boned chicken, stuffed w/sticky rice..Not that I eat that stuff, but I am a voyeur..

That said, Peach Farm does superlative seafood, more reasonably than some of the other places in Ctown...I would suggest we get one of the dried oyster dishes, a whole fish, clams w/black bean sauce, or whole scallops(another trad new Year food) w/ginger and scallion, another of their best dishes. Perhaps their lobster w/ginger and scallion, or crabs..They do great pea pod tendrils, and we shold choose a soup..

Luckily, none of these things need to be ordered in advance.(except the chicken)..We COULD arrange the menu in advance, because I know we'll have adventurous eaters, and then we'd know what the cost was in advance..The manager is going to call me later, and I had floated the idea of $30 per person for food, which should be pretty easy to stay under, because that's what we paid for my birthday seafood pigout, and I can't imagine it going higher..However, if we had 6 people(min. for a reservation, which would be great for tues nite!!),we could GET a res., but not have to make our choices til we get there...Either way...

I know 9lives wants in, and Rubee...Ben and Steve were up in the air... Everyone's welcome; the more people, the more fun it will be!! Hope this whole post hasn't been too confusing...To sum up, we need 6, or more...I'm doing preliminary planning, but we don't HAVE to choose any dishes in advance...Who's interested?? If you have more questions, just substitute "@" for "AT", and "." for "DOT" on my email address
