April was an off month since we are travelling for a change. Hope to put something together for May when we return.
Back at China Palace again! The picture below shows 40 Sirs and their Ladies enjoying a great meal:
January got off with a bang and celebration of Chinese New Year at the China Palace Restaurant on N. Main St in Walnut Creek. The Palace was packed as 40 SIR/Spousesalmost filled the whole restaurant. Judy, the owner, her husband, and her daughter, worked hard to keep everyone happy and I think they succeeded. We devoured a couple of appetizers and then moved on to six different main dishes. Some washed it down with wine, others beer and a few had hot tea. And in the end Chairman Ron gave everyone a chocolate Rabbit in honor of the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Rabbit.
We are looking for a venue for a Bargain Bites event in March, so stay tuned and check your e-mails for an announcement.
Remember- the motto of Bargain Bites – – Good Food! Good Price! Good Friends! And guests are always welcome. This is a really good event to invite friends to introduce them to SIR, but do it early as we often fill up.

You will receive personal e-mails in advance of the Hotline. Again, thanks for your interest and wonderful support. It makes the effort worthwhile.

Our goal is to find local restaurants with good food at a reasonable price. The objective is always $20 (tax/tip incl) for a full meal often including salad or appetizer and sometimes dessert. You pay for your own beverages. Corkage has usually been $10.

Pictures from the “Three Brothers from China” dining 5/24/2016
This was a traditional Chinese feast served family style at tables of eight. How many you wonder? There were seven tables of eight which adds up to 56 SIR and spouses– – another new record. Thanks to all of you who attended and support Bargain Bites and all of our great SIR activities. And a special thanks to my partner Ron Maciak (and Linda) who organized this one while I was twiddling my thumbs. And to Alex Go (and Mayo) who suggested Three Brothers and helped with the arrangements.
Santorini in Danville on March 21
The food was great and there was plenty of it. A number of people took left over boxes home with them. The buffet was a little clumsy with the seating arrangement in the restaurant, but you all handled it very well. And the wine helped.
