Chinese Society of Utah holds New Year banquet at not-so-Chinese venue

For a brand new Chinese New Year experience, Chinese Society of Utah is hosting its 2013 banquet at the most exquisite Brazilian steak house in Salt Lake City – Texas de Brazil.  It’s the traditional Chinese celebration in a not-so-traditional but luxurious setting.  
Location:  Texas de Brazil at City Creek Center, 50 S. Main St., SLC.
Date:  2/24/13. Registration: 5pm; Dinner: 5:30pm 

We apologize for the last minute change.  However, we believe this is a great benefit to our members, as the dinner is still $15/person for CSU members and $45/person for non-members (regular price at the restaurant is $43 + tax + tips).  There will be plenty of prize drawings as planned.

If you haven’t RSVP, don’t miss this one time only opportunity.  Again, seats are limited.  Please RSVP with Ling-Ling Chen 801-712-8538, contact@utahchinesesociety.com.  Like our Facebook page:  www.facebook.com/chinesesocietyofutah
