Yes… this Saturday offers us plenty to do. Pacific Asia Museum and the Dumpling Station Truck (which by the way I’ve been hoping to try) is sponsoring a FREE dumpling making eating competition today from 4 pm until 6 pm.
Six contestants will try to finish 50 dumplings in 2 minutes. The winner will receive prizes including a $50 Visa gift card and some other goodies. Four contestants have been pre-selected by Dumpling Station via random email selection and the remaining participants will be chosen on site via a raffle drawing.
The activities will also include music and games. Enjoy fresh dumplings and drinks in the beautiful museum courtyard! Peruse the galleries, the museum store and check out the Special Exhibitions. Admission to the museum is free throughout the event. Can’t beat that!
So, sample the dumplings and learn more about Asian Heritage. And, don’t forget to follow that up with Music Under the Stars at the City Hall.
By the way, if you will be there, please send me pix and I’ll add to this post. Unfortunately, I can’t make it. 🙁
