2010 Christmas Party

Recommended Posts

The club Christmas Party will be at Kwans on 12-12-2010 from 1-5pm!

 

Kwans Chinese Kitchen

835 Commercial St SE

Salem, OR 97302

503-362-7711

 

Our food list is going to be:

 

UPDATED 11-22

 

Vegetable egg rolls

Szecheuen Beef

Sweet Sour Chicken

BBQ Pork Fried Rice

Sweet sour pork

Vegetable lo mien

rice

Tea

Cookies

 

This list is $14.00 per person

 

And since this is a BUFFET style eating we will need everyone to pay the club thru PayPal in advance. The club will then pay the ticket for the dinner as one bill.

This is a No Host Bar. So if someone would like a Beer/Mixed Drink that is an extra out of their own pocket!!

We believe that both menus include a soda/drink, but we can double check that when we talk to Mr. Kwan.

 

Thank you all and hope to see you there. Lots of great things to raffle away!!!!

Looks like I'm skipping this meeting too, sorry folks, but 18 bucks a head at a chinese restuarant, no offense, is just too much, I could see that if we were going to a Olive Garden or something, but we didn't pay near that much last year...I just can't justify driving to Salem an then spending another 40 bucks on food for the 2 of us. Have fun guys :P The Xmas parties are always fun lol.

This was the best deal around that can hold the amount of people we are expecting to show up, and i figure when i got out to dinner 20.00 per person is average. The price listed is not set in stone yet, will be back with a concrete price soon

I just cant justify spending a hundred bucks guys, 40 on gas 40 on food n then 20 or so on the raffle, if it was a pf changs, olive garden or something along those linea, i could justify it, but at this point i just cant.

 

An no worries Jon you're gonna be comin up here once Jess n I get our house lol.

I'm for getting a Large Place. Last year was just to small for all the people there.As for the price, "I"ll Take some of the Blue and some of the yellow. And don't get cheap on me." Its all you can eat.

I'm guessing that the powers that be have already made the decision. I'm not crazy about chinese food but that's cheap considering the cool things you could win in the raffles.

This place was one of the options that the club had and that would work for us.

 

All of these suggestions would have been nice to have about 2 months ago when we asked for them. When we started looking for a venue to hold the Xmas Party.

 

So remember that for next year when the topic comes up.

I'm not going for the food anyways. So I could care less. Its the reefin family that I want to visit during the holidays. Ok that sounded like a hallmark card but visiting and learning from everyone is what makes it worth while. Not the food.

Is that really the make or break on this? What is the price range everyone wants. This includes gratuity and a drink also. Thanks

 

Help us make this better! Speak :)

AGAIN, $18.00 was a starting point! Once the 7 menu items are choosen and the menu is finalized with Kwans, Roy will tell us the final price!!

 

The reason for the poll was to get the favorites down to a smaller number so we can get the price lowered. So don't worry about the price until Roy finalizes the menu with Kwans!!

 

Hopefully Roy will have news in the next couple of days........ atleast by weeks end.

For me it isn't the price, I would have been fine paying $30 each.. but what you get for the price. Chinese food is just notoriously a $10/person meal. Obviously I wasn't around for a while, (returned to work from maternity leave, dealing with newborn, and 5 weeks of bronchitis) so I didn't help with the hunt for a location.

 

Either way it sounds like it's a done deal, but as a member I did want to express my feelings on it.
