Chinapalooza 2010 – Welcome!

As I wrote earlier, the official kick-off to Chinapalooza 2010 began with a dinner hosted by the Chicago families.  Where, you might ask?  None other than:

Oh Yeah!!!  Chicago-style deep dish pizza at the renown Gino’s East, that’s where!!!  The group had arranged for private room.  What a great time and a great feast!  Salad!  Appetizers!  Thin-crust pizza!  Deep-dish pizza! Cookies!  Oh my oh my.  I only wish I could have eaten more because it was G-O-O-D!

We first learned of Gino’s Pizza back in 2007 while watching the travel channel.  Then Godzilla’s favorite show “Man vs. Food” visited Gino’s in 2008.  We have been wanting to eat there ever since.

One of the traditions of this restaurant is that people from all over write and scribble all over the walls, and any other surface that is within reach.

Big Tuna and The Princess.

We had a great time getting re-acquainted with the other families as well as stuffing ourselves.  Good thing we have a lot of walking to do tomorrow!

More fun to come!……………
