Our Chinatown Tours will conclude in 2014 with our last tour of the year onDecember 28.

The cost is $50 for members, $60 for non-members and includes all food samples on the tour as well as lunch.   Registration is limited to eight participants to keep the tour small and intimate. Meeting information will be provided after registration and payment.
