Big Chinese in the Twin Cities Area

From the Star-Tribune:

Dim sum at 3 a.m.?

When Jun Bo opens early next month in the former Chi Chi's location at 7717 Nicollet Av., Richfield, it will be the biggest Chinese restaurant in Minnesota. The 22,000-square-foot restaurant's largest dining room will have space for 40 banquet tables, or 400 guests -- big enough to accommodate the huge wedding events and community celebrations that are traditional in the Chinese community. Jun Bo will feature a traditional Chinese menu, full bar, and dim sum (the traditional Chinese tea snacks) all day, every day, from 9 a.m. to 3 a.m.

Spring Has Sprung, the Blog is Blooming

The Blog will begin to bloom again, but not necessarily for the best reasons. I have suspended (abandoned?) my phpbb message board indefinitely after the third hacker attack in 18 months wiped out all the posts and part of the membership roll. I intend to make more use of the blog as a repository for pithy information gleaned on the fly, so check back often. I'm mulling alternative message board solutions, such as more secure software, better hosting arrangement (with better support) and the like, so eventually interactivity will be restored to In the meantime, I have created a "mini me" of the departed forum in the form of a Google Group, so stop by and join in!
