    Hi,

    I will be busy judging an heirloom recipe contest. If I could divide myself in two, I would be there!

    Saturdays are a real zoo at Lao You Ju. In fact, I vowed to only go on weekdays from now on. With a group the size of this one, be sure to call ahead for a reservation or be prepared for a VERY long wait.

    good point. I'll put the cap on the list after this, and I'll call and make a reservation (hopefully they take a reservation!) I personally don't mind waiting, the shops and bakeries in the are can keep me occupied, but to ask a huge group to come wait in the cold would be rude. thanks steve!

    Chapulin is feeling under the weather today, with a bad cold. I am afraid we will have to call it off, so please delete rgl201 and chapulin from the list. Thanks.

    I'm not sure, as i don't even know what the pricing is like at this specific place. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure that every LTH meetup I've been to has been somewhere around the range of $20-$35. Sorry, I know it's a big range, but I'm sure it'll fall in between there somewhere.

    I forgot to mention, in case anyone was worried. We do have a reservation for 1pm. Hopefully the food is awesome! If not, at least the company will be great!

    What name is the reservation under, or who should we ask for just in case (I haven't met many LTHers and I'm sure you guys won't recognize me).

    Was everyone struck speechless by the food? :)

    Still planning on going today at 1pm, not going to make reservations.
