I just got an email about a charity dinner at the new Home Plate Bar-B-Q in Sanlitun South on December 24. The meal costs rmb200, goes from 7 PM to 10 PM, and includes all-you-can-gulp pulled pork, chopped BBQ beef, potato salad, beans, cream corn, Bourbon bread pudding and more from Home Plate and all-you-can-guzzle Parker Estate Chardonnay and De Martino Cabernet Sauvignon from The Wine Republic as well as Tsingtao and soft drinks. Half of the revenue — rmb100 per person — will go to the charity Wuxun Foundation. Sounds like a good way to get into the Christmas spirit in Beijing.
An RSVP is essential. Make yours by December 21 by sending an email to lamarr_irby (at) hotmail.com.
