This week's tablehopper: say heyyyyy to HK!

We are full swing into December (what the hell, how did that happen?) and I can’t believe this Sunday evening is the tablehopper and Champagne Henriot feast at Great China! (Sorry folks, that one has been sold out for a while.) Excited to pop Champagne and eat some double skin salad and Peking duck with all of you who are attending!

If you missed tickets for that event, we still have some for the upcoming tablehopper two-martini lunch at Bix on Friday December 18th! Basically, I am giving you a really good reason to leave your office early that day, come enjoy some holiday cheer (two SKYY Vodka or Bulldog Gin martinis, to be exact), sing along to holiday music from Veronica Klaus and Tammy Hall (who are performing live for the event!), and the famous Bix burger is on the menu (of course)! I really hope to see you there, it’s going to be tres festive. #LetsHolidayy

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I spent the majority of it writing today’s jetsetter piece on Hong Kong, which I visited earlier this year (I recommend clicking through on the link instead of reading it in the newsletter so you can look at bigger pictures!). Oh, and let’s not forget editing through the 2,000 images I took (you can view my Hong Kong Flickr album here, which is NOT 2,000 images, and I’ll be adding captions over the next couple of days!). This is what happens when you’re me—you eat too much, see too much, do too much, and just have to document it all and write about it! But man, what an amazing place—I had to try to do it all!

I hope you enjoy it—and my pics should make for some fun armchair travel this weekend. If you’re inspired to book a flight to Hong Kong, I noticed a few days ago that Cathay Pacific is doing an awesome fare sale (that ends today!).

Enjoy your weekend, keep toasty.
