Vegetarians Beware

This is not the story for you if you get weak in the knees when seeing images of roasted or cooked meet.  And I will admit that when I was at the Empress of China Restaurant at a charity fund raiser for Project Concern International on Saturday, I was a bit surprised when the 1st course of a 10 course meal was brought out and it was a roasted Tweedy bird.

I thought I saw a Tweedy bird

Now growing up in Iowa where the only exposure that I had to the Chinese culture was the local “King Buffet” which was just a glorified Kentucky Fried Chicken with sweet and sour sauce and fortune cookies, so it stands to reason that anything short of serving up a bucket of chicken is going to send some sort of shock to my system.  I’m not saying that I didn’t eat it…I’m just saying that it was something I hadn’t done before.

The charity event was a really fun time.  They had a silent auction as well as a live auction which another event I had never been apart of.  The live auction was exciting and there was a real battle for a couple of the prizes.  The auctioneer was Mr. Brooke Sivo from Bonhams.  He very much the professional and really had the auction moving.  I got to talk to him afterwards and he told me some things about auctions that I think will inspire some new cartoons.

The band was very good too.  For being a band put together just for that event they were very tight and fun to listen to.  Overall I had a really good time and because I went with one of the organizers from the committee I was there until the very end.
