Woks and Lox

Date & Time

START: 5:00 PM December 24, 2011
END: 9:00 PM December 24, 2011


Ever since the first lonely Jew ordered Chinese takeout on Christmas, there has been an undeniable bond between Jews and Asians. This Christmas Eve, Veronica Chan and Jeff Orlick wipe away those lonely tears and celebrate our combined heritage. The duo is bringing you Woks and Lox, the very first Jewish and Asian Christmas.

On Christmas Eve, they creating a warm, wondrous night celebrating our Asian and Jewish cultures at The Queens Kickshaw in Astoria, Queens. Chichi Wang, Serious Eats columnist and Chinese cook extraordinaire, will prepare dinner and noshes and TQK is creating some wild imbibing concoctions, both in a mash-up of Jewish and Asian cuisine.

But that’s not all, of course not. There will be Chinese wedding games, a Bar Mitzvah sign-in board, and instead of a band, they are hiring ladies to play mah jongg -Seriously! We’re twisting Asian and Jewish party games to give away lots of prizes from our sponsors including:
