We were walking past 12th and Denny today and saw people working hard on finalizing the interior of Chungee’s which has taken over the old location of Esmerelda. Speaking quickly with the people inside, this is what we learned:
- On Monday, February 8th, the restaurant will have its soft opening
- Next Saturday there will be a grand opening party including line dancing out in front on the sidewalk of 12th
It looks pretty nice inside, but our group was understandably confused by the idea of line dancing. We shall see.
UPDATE by jseattle: Note in comments that the celebration will include a lion dance, not a line dance. Sounds like fun.
