According to the organizers:
Chinatown is perhaps the only neighborhood in New York where $1 can get a full meal; a century ago, the same was true of Chinatown’s chop suey houses, whose entrees were considered exotic by droves of hungry New Yorkers. Join Sarah Lohman and Jonathan Soma to learn about the history of Chinese takeout and the stories behind our modern American Chinese food experience.
Doors open at 6 pm. Program begins promptly at 6:30.
