Chinese Food

There’s a place here in town called Chu Shing, on the northwest corner a block west of Somerset and Bronson. We go there sometimes to eat, because it’s good food and it’s dirt cheap after 8:00 P.M.

Because most of the people I hang out with are Ultimate players, we talk about Ultimate. And that’s getting pretty stale, but we need some sort of critical mass of interesting non-players to show up so we can talk about something else.

So, yo: if you can make conversation about something that’s not Ultimate and you’re less of an insufferable prick than I am, you should show up at Chu Shing this Thursday at 9:00 for a late dinner. It probably won’t set you back more than ten bucks, unless we do some absolutely heroic, industrial-strength eating.

And, hey, bring your friends. It’s not like they’re short of food.

Leave a comment if you’re coming.

    Oh, lovely, you do this on the day I’m leaving the country for the weekend. You’re working extra-hard to make sure that despite being in the same building for years at a time and conversing online, we never actually meet, aren’t you.

    I’m stalking you. Actually meeting you would really spoil it.

    Will the Shing have TVs playing the Calgary-Tampa hockey game? If not, then I’d say you’re suffering from some incredibly poor planning … if so, then I’m there!

    The Shing, as I’m sure you know, does a decent Dim Sum, too, but I prefer the dumpplings at the place with the name that keeps changing in the building with the red tile facade across the street.

    There is a TV there. But having said that, yes, I completely forgot about the damn hockey game.

    So is this thing on or what? I might show if I do a second run and get my bike all in one peice again tonight.

    Cheers and thanks again for the DVDs!

    Would you like soy sauce with that?

    I’d love to come along, if you don’t think that’d be odd and creepy, but the class I’m crashing doesn’t let out until 2100h. Do you think it’d be worthwhile to bus/cab out?

    Coop, that soy-sauce article was awesome. I couldn’t stop laughing.

    No, an open invitation to a late meal on a website that exhorts complete strangers to bring their friends shouldn’t expect to attract wierdos, I’d say.

    Christ, of course. Wherever you’re taking the course (Ottawa? Carleton?) there should be a direct bus from there to the meal, and I expect we’ll be there for a while. No rush.
