Remember I told you two weeks ago in my Weekend Musings that There is Such a Thing Called Free Lunch? Well, here is the plan.
We had known Rey almost a year already. When we met, he was working in promoting the Filipino culture through raising awareness. Being a foodie too he brought us to Filipino restaurants and introduced us to Filipino cuisines.
Suanne and I always enjoyed learning about food and its associated culture. So we looked forward all the time to meet with Rey to learn from him.
Well, you can too … and believe it or not, FOR FREE!!
There is no catch, no selling of anything — so you don’t have to worry about this arrangement. It’s a long story how Rey end up with free lunches but he has quite a bit to use up. So Rey thought he might as well share it with chowtimes’ readers. What he wants to do it to promote Filipino culture and Filipino food. For Suanne and I we thought it would be another great idea to provide value to you readers and get to know some of you more.
Here is the arrangements:
Restaurant: Goto King
Address: 5183 Joyce Street, Vancouver (google map)
Date: March 6th, 2010 (Saturday) at 12:00 noon
Yeah, that is this coming Saturday. So time is a bit tight to arrange things (all thanks to my procrastination due to the Olympics!). Location wise, it is perfect because it is just next to the Joyce Skytrain station for those of you who don’t drive.
If you are interested, … please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). When you send me your email, please indicate if it is for one or two people (sorry, not more than two people). In the event that there are more than 8 people in total responding, we will make a random draw. Please only send me an email only if you can make it for the lunch on that day. We will have spaces for only 8 people.
Please respond by 6AM Wednesday, March 3rd because I would like to finalize the arrangements with the attendees.
I had never been to Goto King before. I heard that it is part of the Goto King chain in the Phillipines. In Vancouver, Goto King is operated by Cucina Manila next door. We want to let you know that Goto King is NOT gourmet food but serves day-to-day Filipino food. So don’t come expecting linens and such but do come expecting to learn a thing or two about Filipino culture and meet fellow foodies.
