Just a reminder, if you are interested in entering the ongoing East-West Chinatown lunch explorations, email me at the address above and I will send you an Evite. The link below gives more information. Or you can respond here.
Someone asked about doing these lunches on weekends. That would be good for some, like me, who normally can't get to lunches on weekdays (though I am available during the summer). Most of the people doing these lunch series work in the respective downtown areas, and eat lunch out every weekday anyway. But weekend lunches are a good idea.
However I would encourage others to host anything you want. First get a special (free) email account such as the one I did at hotmail, Then use Evite.com and post here for people to sign up. Unfortunately there's no way to link directly to Evite from this board.
Evite is a great method (and it's free!) but some email systems block it (the system identifies it as spam).
