  2. I did take an opportunity to see The Farewell, and enjoyed it very much. The dialogue was not very difficult to follow , but I am certainly not at a level where I could have understood it without reading the subtitles. I may check into the Library to see if they might have Chinese original programming on DVD. This challenge may span over into next year, and frankly however long it takes, I am up to the challenge. I have always had a love for linguistics, and there are aspects of Mandarin I find fascinating. I hope to reward myself with a trip Zhengzhou once I have reached a comfortable level of both speech and understanding.
  3. I have been watching the news often. The dialects are the most difficult to discern from. Im wondering if perhaps there is an Chinese “Hulu” I could subscribe to that streams soap operas or episodic shows. I haven’t given up.
  4. I present to you Pumpkin Spice Spam. Ridiculous indeed, and Food and Wine has taken the leap and has already tried it.
  5. Seedlip acquired by Diageo! Forbes.com
  6. Link to tickets I thought I added a link to this event, but I guess I did not.
  7. My favorite from the comments, "All those White House tourists will descend upon it like locusts. It'll print money." This is a fact.
  8. Charmcity Nightmarket ticket sales are now live. Come celebrate the heritage of Baltimore's historic Chinatown with 100+ local AAPI & POC restaurants, makers, and performing artists! About this Event Charm City Night Market is back for it's second year! On Saturday, September 21, make your way back down to historic Chinatown to experience it all over again. Just look for the familiar lanterns that will stretch all the way to Center Plaza making the night market almost twice as big. This year will also feature The Joy Luck Club experience which you will be able to find at One Charles Center, on the balcony overlooking Center Plaza. The Joy Luck Club is an intimate setting featuring food and activities from a diverse set of chefs and artists. You will be able to try food from Watersong (Chinese), Sarap Sarap (Filipino), Skiz's Original (Sri Lankan), Chef Kiet Philavanh of Bookmaker's Cocktail Club (Laotian), The Loving Spoon Collective (Baltimore) and Rooted & Bloomed (Local Hawaiian). Chef Seng Luangrath of Thip Khao, Hanumanh & Sen Khao will be giving a cooking demonstration of a classic Laotian dish. fadensonnen will be offering a complimentary cocktail and a cash bar featuring some unique cocktails.

Our artists & makers row is also back and bigger than ever and for the first time this year, Charm City Night Market will have a special Children's area featuring over-sized games, singing, dancing, drawing, and readings from some special guest authors.

This event is family friendly and ADA accessible. Please notify us if you walk with assistance or have a wheelchair. The main The Joy Luck Club entrances are in stairwells, but there is an alternate accessible entrance that we can make available.
  9. Pop-up ran from 12-5. Brisket sold out at around 2:30. I was informed a line formed around 11:15, and well I guess everyone was on the same page as me. I arrived 20 minutes too late for what I was looking forward to since I heard the announcement of said pop-up. I ordered the ribs & rice. Kinda unremarkable, and the rice was meh. I have been on a BBQ kick lately, and I wonder why there are not more places that serve up good BBQ. Oh well., onto the next pop-up. Deflated, kat
  10. One would hope this app may be in it's beta state, and will eventually be available in Google store and non- IOS devices.
  11. A pop -up in the Parts & Labor space to take place this Saturday from 12-5. I took a peak at BarkBBQ instagram and it looks downright delicious. Will report back.
  12. I have been following the progression of closures at the Bourse Food Hall in Philly, and a few stalls have closed on account they simply weren't meeting the dining needs of the guests visiting the location. Perhaps this is the case for Jubilee, but why not be upfront about the details. On the few occasions I have been to Urbanspace's location of Jubilee, I found their flavor offerings a bit adventurous, or maybe they just had spread themselves too thin among all of their locations.
  13. Taste America Tour stops In Philadelphia There are two opportunities to take part in James Beard Foundation's Taste America tour for their stop in Philadelphia. One is clearly a bit more accessible then the other one. I hope to be able to attend the cocktail party on Oct 30, but the gala is way out of my price range. I think I recall attending something similar to this over a decade ago in Washington, DC, where Marc Vetri cooked up the best pasta I have had to date.
  14. I am not sure why Chap's Pit Beef is the go to for pit beef. I have tried to like it, but I just find it void of flavor. I still stand by my recommendation of Pioneer, again not sure if its solely worth the drive from DC, but if you live in the nearby area, 100%. And if you don't like it, you would have only spent less than $10. You can grab a pitbeef and a 45 next door at the liquor store and make it a lively picnic.
  15. Dutch potato salad from Wegmans should fit the bill.
  16. This here is all I need to know to hop on aeroplane and dive in and visit Turkey and the Wolf.
  17. Thank you for posting this event. I have added it to the calendar.
  18. Blackberry Farm's collaboration with Mini Bar is perhaps one of the more expensive pop- ups I have read about priced $595/ per person, and both time slots are sold out.
  19. Its actually still open. Norma doesn’t produce weekly, on account of her health. But she is still running the stand. i just had a few slices a few weeks ago. For the little oven she has, she produces one hell of pie. She experiments with different fermentation's, and produces different styles of pies. From Neapolitan to Detroit square, she is another gem tucked away in Lancaster County.
