    Ah yes, I knew I must have missed something when I tried to provide a comprehensive coverage of things to do in Boston on the fly.

    A quintessential Boston experience is actually not in Boston. In the town of Saugus, MA -- 45 minutes outside Boston, there is a Chinese restaurant called Kowloon Restaurant. The reason I stumbled upon it was that it was located next to my hotel. When I saw it, I totally expected it to be just like the other 9000 generic Chinese restaurants in America conveniently situated across a cheap hotel. Believe me, I've eaten my share of crappy food at places like that. Boy, was I in for a surprise with this one.

    When we stepped into the restaurant, we were told the wait is approximately 1 hour. Under normal circumstances, we would have turned away. But there was something special about the restaurant that drew us in. It was unusually lively for a Chinese restaurant. The clientele looked upscale and chic, instead of pale and cheap, which is what you normally see in small town Chinese restaurants. Moreover, we learned there was an Elvis impersonation show on the second floor. "At a Chinese restaurant?" I remember being puzzled. I knew that I had to see this place for myself.

    The place was absolutely packed, and the clientele seemed to uniformly be of the upper-class Caucasian family type. Normally in Chinese restaurants, you find a number of old people who can barely walk, and a number of overweight fellas who obviously have no business there. But not at Kowloon Restaurant. The entire customer base, from parents to teenagers, looked healthy and fit - a whole lot of beautiful people, some of whom are magazine cover-worthy.

    The food was accompanied by a live piano performance. Of course, when you have live music and a whole lot of social ladder's finest, they want to dance! And that's exactly what they did. A few busted out their moves in the center of the room. Oh, did I mention, the entire restaurant was decorated with tropical impressions from head to toe? And, to my great surprise, the waiter actually spoke Mandarin! Even though NONE of their 1000+ customers was Chinese, except for us!

    I've never quite seen a Chinese restaurant like Kowloon (Link #2), before or since. It is the most atmospherically vibrant Chinese restaurant that I've ever been to. It was as if I had walked into an executive bar for White people. The best part is, I stumbled upon it randomly. Bottom line: go there and see it for yourself, but make a reservation well in advance!

    kowloon is actually like a 10 min drive from my house. it caters to mostly white people because it's been around for decades and the original owners' abc kids/grandkids are in charge of it now.

    my mom went to a wedding there before and...since they mostly cater to white folk, it was .... interesting. for example, you know how you have shark fin soup, one big bowl to a table? well, the abc kid waiter scooped heaping bowls for everyone...from the top. so the first couple bowls were just water and the last couple were thick with shark fin. he ran out and was like, don't worry! i got more! and he took some from the the bowl that was going to the next table.

    there's a newer restaurant named jin that's also all decorated with cheesy...i mean..."authentic" chinese knick knacks...but the food there isn't as good.

    PJ: for some reason, I always thought your avatar was a closeup of Mariah Carey...from the cover of one of her albums.

    Actually the big difference is that with male strippers, there are liability concerns. Someone can get their eyes poked out!

    Due to several complaints, I will stop using the terms "Babe" and "Baby" in reference to our female counterpart. They will now be replaced with "B*tch."

    Umm what? Are you talking about a fight or something? Why would women fight over male strippers?

    Ogakira, you're going to be there, right?

    GuGu better work a couple more of double shifts to make more monies. Then you can tuck the $20 bills in the dancers' G-string to get some attention.

    "Men do not enjoy looking at naked men", you never know RWX, you guys may start to like it.

    I just want to tell people that I've done stupid and crazy stuff before, you know when I'm older like you guys and stuff. And who better to do it with but you guys, who are total strangers to me in real life. We won't ever meet again because I'm sure none of us would keep in contact.

    And Thor, I could get a lap dance too right? Wait, do guy strippers do that?

    You two understand that I want a lap dance from the strippers and not you two, right?

    What other stuff are you guys planning on doing. Things that you guys said I wouldn't be interested in.

    Maybe Ren Wo Xing has more experience with male strippers than we thought?

    Geez GuGu, I do not really know, Never been to a male stripper show.
    PJ and RWX seem to be very knowledgeable with male strippers and what they will do(for them) . They must be a frequent customers.

    I am definitely not an expert or anything on Male Stripperism. But I do know that money can make the ghost turn the millstone --> stupid Chinese expression, but I like the sound of it!

    That, or PJ and RWX are at least somewhat intelligent.

    Just a possibility.

    I got refered to this thread on facebook, and what's this - talking about male strippers.

    I expected more from PJ and RWX, though not at all surprised GuGu is in the midst of this (where's ogakira).

    So when are you guys planning on the trip? How many days is good for LV? Might go with friends later in the year.
