Why don't we plan to meet at Bar Sue. Does 5:30 work? And do I remember correctly that the Polish Home is cash only?

Obama alert!

 

He arrives Boeing Field 3:45 tomorrow, and goes to the Westin downtown for a 6:00. This may not be a problem, but...

 

This would lead me (from Phinney Ridge) to go over the University bridge then left on Boyer along the water to 23rd. Sort of go at the Polish Club (18th and Madison) from behind.

 

Bar Sue @ 14th and Mad should provide a sufficient buffer zone between us and our fearless leader...

It looks like I picked a good night to go out after work, rather than commute! See you all there!

It's been a while since we did a weekend dumpling run.  Does Sunday Nov 1st look like a good day for folks?  We could try Hong Kong dim sum up in Lynnwood?

Dinner at Dom Polski was fantastic! If you haven't been, go! It's not all about dumplings either, although we had our fill of them! We also tried:

Dill pickle soup - not as good as I've had elsewhere. Not very pickle-y.

Beet soup - this was fantastic. So clear and flavorful and had mini dumplings in it.

Hunter stew - also fantastic. Very hearty and meaty.

Pork hock - I'd give this a pass. It was boiled or steamed and I didn't like that the skin wasn't crispy. It would have been better if they had finished it off under a broiler.

Pork schnitzel - this as really good. Not dry at all.

 

The two pork dishes came with mashed potatoes (just okay) and a couple of different sauerkrauts. For dessert we had cheese dumplings in a brown butter sauce (yum) and cheese crepes (pretty good) and a cheesecake (good).

 

All that and a cocktail too came to $32 per person, including tip!

Sunday, the 1st doesn't work for me. What about this Saturday, the 17th? Or the following Saturday or Sunday, the 24th or 25th? Also, when I was at the new Asian Mart at 132nd this past weekend, the Hong Kong dim sum place was open so we won't have to drive all the way to Lynnwood to try it!

We could do Sunday the 25th.  We have friends coming for dinner on the 24th, so it's doable, but unwise...

Looking further out since this didn't work, how about the weekend of the 21st/22nd?  Or sometime thanksgiving weekend?
