**** Chowdown/Winedown at R&G Lounge -- March 2, 7:30pm ****

nja | Feb 27, 200405:05 PM    

Melanie Wong and I invite you to join us for a chowdown at R&G Lounge in San Francisco's Chinatown. We have already ordered the famous chicken stuffed with sticky rice, and Melanie will navigate us through the rest of the menu at her favorite restaurant in Chinatown. This invitation is open to all, whether you're an R&G regular like her or a first timer like me.

This event will be a chance to experiment with matching different wines with Cantonese cuisine. Each diner must bring at least one bottle of wine they would like to share with the table. It can be any wine you want: a traditional match or something totally outrageous. Our only request: no oak bombs, please. You are also encouraged to bring your own glasses to try the wines side-by-side; those provided by R&G are, shall we say, not the best stemware on earth.

The cost will be approximately $35 per person for food. Corkage will minimal if not waived. We will also be passing the hat for donations to Chowhound.

The dinner will begin promptly at 7:30pm on Tuesday, March 2nd.

Newcomers to Chowhound are especially encouraged to attend. And while everyone is invited, space is very limited so you must RSVP and receive a confirmation from me in order to attend.

If you would like to attend, please:
- Email me at njachow@yahoo.com
- Tell me what wine you will be bringing. Please provide at least a general idea of the wine you’ll bring (e.g., “German Riesling” or “New Zealand Savignon Blanc”), but the more specific you can be the better. I ask this only to ensure we have a wide variety of wines. If you want to come but have no idea what wine to bring, let me know and I’ll make some suggestions.
