Greetings all,

What fun is celebrating New Year unless you get to celebrate the Chinese New Year!  Let's get together at my place on Jan26 2019 for food, fun and friendship.

Food will be catered so do NOT bring food! Dinner will be served sometime a bit after 19:00 (7:00pm), so show up starting at 18:30 (6:30pm). As always bring any beverage that will add a little 'style' to the party.

There will be several other games available to keep all busy, including cards, pinball, air hockey, foosball, board games, table hockey, Atari and shuffleboard. Socialization will be available all evening.  

For those that want to get into the 'theme', we are ending

The Year of the Dog

Also try to wear something associated with your birth animal (I am a pig, so I will wear a snout)

DO NOT BRING DOGS OR PIGS (I am not zoned for livestock and I am allergic to canines)  

If you plan on coming, IT IS IMPERATIVE TO NOTIFY ME BY JAN23 so I can order the right amount of food. You are of course welcome to stop by even if you do not reply by then. 

Park on the north side of 57th (side of street opposite my house).  As always, invite others who may be interested (including well-behaved children!) since invariably I forget someone. 

I reserve the right to "flog" ("cane" if you're from Eastern Hemisphere), folks involved in deep discussions on

         Work

         Politics

         Religion

Remember, it's a New Year...we're here to have fun!
