The "Save the Date" you've been saving, July 11, at 7:00pm, is a Northern Thai Dinner at Khao Sarn, in Coolidge Corner..We gather to celebrate the 10,000th post on the Boston Board, (several months ago, I know), to welcome new Boston Hounds, (Limster, the Coyotes, Zeb and Helen Cook), and to bid a sad farewell to the leavening in our dough, the black-bean sauce on our eel, Psmith..
The menu at Khao Sarn has been preplanned, with Yoshi, the co-owner, and closet chowhound reader... We have chosen a wide-range of traditional Northern Thai Specialties; a menu that will be different from any other Thai in Boston, and hopefully, give us a sampling of the unusual cuisine that Khao Sarn does. We estimate that the food cost will be approximately $20. pp, including tax and tip.. While this is low, remember that we like to leave a little room for "I gottah have it!!" moments that we might have, and the need to have more of something we adore! Also, Khao Sarn does delightful cocktails, which will be a seperate check, for those who indulge.(I forced myself to sample a lichee martini while planning the menu; I think he should rename it a "Lichee Cloud", but I digress....)
Since we are the only board that hasn't had a chowhound fundraiser, and since the server crashed last weekend, and we had a glimpse of what life would be like without our daily bread-bulletin, I propose this as a fundraiser for the site...In addition to the tab, we would like each participant to give $10, in a check to chowhound, if that's more comfortable for you, or cash, which we will use to purchase "Goodwill" ..
Unfortunately, space at Khao Sarn is limited....Yoshi said 15 people, I begged for 20, if we had to..Since this has been discussed several times on the board, and at the Rincon Limeno dinner last week, there are 20 tentative reservations, who will get first "right of refusal"..
CFox, and Gingerman
Rubee and Ernesto
9Lives and Kathleen
Zeb and Helen
The Coyotes (1&2)
Chuck S, and Mrs. Chuck
