On April 26, 2022, we had 38 SIRs, including spouses, enjoy a great Chinese family style Dinner at the CHINA PALACE RESTAURANT in Walnut Creek. We all enjoyed a really nice meal including Crabmeat Puffs, Garlic Prawns, Lemon Chicken, Sweet and Sour Pork, BroccoliBeef and many more heaping dishes of Chinese specialties. Of course, the prices are up as, I am sure most of you have noticed if you have eaten out recently. But not that’s not bad if you consider what the restaurant owners have been through for the past two years. It felt good to support them. And it was especially nice to be among friends and share food and stories.

If you happened to miss out, watch for the next announcement. Remember: the motto of Bargain Bites is Good Food! Good Prices and Good Friends 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. If you would like to be placed on the Bargain Bites e-mail list, just send a note to resmith62@aol.com and say, “Place me on the Bargain Bites List”. Oh yes, include your name. You will receive personal e-mails in advance of the Hotline. Again, thanks for your interest and wonderful support. It makes the effort worthwhile. makes the effort worthwhile.

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.
