Prince's Hot Chicken is on my bucket list.
 
However it might be easier to see Anthony Bourdain slip some tongue to Rachel Ray than get The Contingent to agree on a date for anything.
Jus' sayin'.

    We may not get 100% attendance, but we always get a quorum.  Which, with our bunch, can be as few as two and as many as twenty five.
     
    Are we talkin' cow tongue or Lark's Tongue In Aspic?  How's that for a cool reference all you old timers?

      The contingent is always welcome in Nashville.


      Given the location of your home base I have to ask: Indiana or Tennessee?

        Buddy - The room situation is being worked out (read the thread)
         
        It looks like a good crowd so far and I know it would be great to meet up with the contingent too.

            Prince's IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!
             
            I can't wait to try and compare Prince's to 400 Degrees to Eastside.  I better bring the TUMS.

              CK,
              You didn't kill the thread, we just got nuthin' to say right now.  As we get closer to the date of this event, the pace of the thread will pick up exponentially.

                Okay, looks like you can count me as a big fat in!  Wait... Better rephrase ... I will attend   I have spent so little time in the Chicago area, other than museums etc, and never around this part of town.  Looks like a fun adventure.

                      Since it's a Sunday, I'd like a lunch time, rather than a dinner. Therefore, anytime between 11 - 1 is fine with me!

                        Count me as another lunch vote.  I'm planning on being there but can't say yet if anyone else will be coming along, and probably won't know for sure until about a week before.

                          11-1 would be my choice for the time also.

                            If we're leaning toward lunch, I'd push for a 1:00pm start.

                              11-1 is fine with me. Even the afternoon is fine, too. I'm glad so many people are on board, including some folks I haven't seen in eons (like cjucoder) or have never met in person (Ann and Alyce). It'll also be nice to meet all of those tasty ducklings and piggies.... And Alyce, I hope you've experienced a Great Lakes winter before.

                                1:00pm sounds good to me.  I can work on some suggestions for other places in that neighborhood for anyone who wants to do some exploring before or after.

                                  I have not experienced a "Great Lakes winter" before...although I was in Chicago, January 2011,  it was very temperate.  But when one loves one's pork, no sacrifice is too great.

                                    A good dessert add on after lunch would be fantastic since it's not really a Chinese thing.

                                      The weather at the end of February can vary wildly so there's no telling what it might be for your visit.  It could be clear with single-digit temperatures, in the 20s and snowing like all get out, or even in the springlike 40s.  Instead of trying to bring along enough clothes to cover the bases you might just want to shop for what you need when you get here.
                                       
                                      So are we definitely planning on ordering the whole pig?  I mentioned it to my daughter and she wants no part of that...

                                        She doesn't HAVE to eat the pig.
                                        Duck is not my thing, so I won't be eating that, and I'll nibble at the pig, but there are other things I might try, so I may end up ordering something in addition, and sharing or taking home leftovers as the situation warrants.

                                          There will be LOTS of other food besides duck and pig- show her the photos of the menu I took when I was there 12/17, plus there's specials they post on the wall that I forgot to take pictures of.
                                           
                                          There will be at least one pig- when I make the reservations, I'm going to ask for their advice on how many to get, considering we're also getting duck(s) and other stuff.  Your daughter can sit at the other end of the table from SeƱor Cerdo.

                                              This may be The Year of the Dragon on the Chinese calendar, but for The Contingent, we have officially entered The Month of the Pig and Duck.  Our visit to Sun Wah is just 25 days away and I can already hear the quacks and squeals emanating from the north side of the city.
                                               
                                              I received a PM from a quiet Roadfooder who calls herself "cubbie" (AKA "Katie" over at LTHForum).  She'll be joining us on the 26th and I thought we might take a moment to make her feel welcome before the actual event.  So, howdy cubbie!  Welcome aboard for this outing and, I hope, many more.  Your attendance, and local address, assures your membership in The Contingent.  I'm sure the other members will be happy to have you in the group.  I've adjusted the guest list to include you as a single.  If you'd like to bring a guest (or more), you're welcome to do so.  Please just keep us informed so we can make the right reservation.
                                               
                                              And come on out of lurking and say "Hi".

                                              P.S. It's getting close to the time for all you fence sitters to make a commitment.  For a group of this size we probably shouldn't wait until the last minute to make a reservation.

                                                You are correct, sir.   
                                                 
                                                I want to make the reservation by Friday, February 10th, so I need a head count in the next 10 days. 
                                                 
                                                Please indicate whether you're down with the pig and/or duck and we'll figure out how many the group will need!
                                                 
                                                Is 1:00pm still the time we're shooting for?
                                                 
                                                P.S. Hi Katie/cubbie!  I post under the same name at LTH.  Glad you're joining us!
                                                P.P.S.  Sent a text message to stricken about this.
