Join fellow alumni for the Restaurant Club selection for May, East Dumpling House in Rockville, MD, on Thursday, May 30 at 7:30 p.m.
This is real Beijing street food. Mostly kabobs (with Chinese spices) and dumplings, though the cold dishes are good too. There are 38 different forms of dumplings, including lamb, chicken, mushroom, bean curd and cabbage, and many other options in various combinations and manifestations. The “Tofu Prime Products” is excellent too. Other vegetarian options abound, including zucchini/egg dumplings and egg/chives/vermicelli dumplings. These are the best dumplings around, and this place should immediately be considered essential dining. It has no close substitute in this area, and in terms of quality and price, it is excellent.
While the place is Metro-accessible, if you drive, note that you will need to get your parking validated at the restaurant.

DC United vs. the Portland Timbers
Join us on Saturday, May 25 (the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend) to watch the Portland Timbers play DC United at RFK stadium in DC. The game is at 7 p.m., but come early for the tailgate so that we can hang out together before the game!
During the game, fans of the Timbers will have tickets in the Timbers Army part of the stadium (Section 318), while DC United fans will be in the Screaming Eagles Nest (sections 132-134). I'm in touch with the Timbers front office and the Timbers Army to make sure that Timbers fans can connect up with the group coming in from Portland (as of late March, there were already 50 signed up for the Timbers section!).
So, when you RSVP, please say where you want your "seats." Tickets will be $30, unless we are able to exceed 15 attendees, in which case the tickets will be $28.
RSVP no later than May 20, 2013, to Paul Alan Levy '72 at email@example.com.
