First Event of the '09-'10 Year!!!

Our first event this year will be our usual Noodle Nights clashed with a taste of Korean Thanksgiving!

Korean Thanksgiving falls on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, and this year, it falls on October 3rd. It is also known as "Chuseok", which originally means "great middle". Originally, it was a holiday where Koreans pay respects to their ancestors and give thanks for providing them with rice and fruits.

In modern Korean culture, although the ancestral rites are an important part, "Chuseok" has become a holiday where relatives gather, demonstrating the importance of family to Korean society. And when Korean families gather, it means there will be hearty eating!

So join us as we heartily eat in celebration of Korean Thanksgiving! Since this event will be an addition to Noodle Night, we will have our regular noodles, plus extra delectables, such as, dumplings, Korean pancakes and more!
