FestivusNW: "Mu Shu, Matzo Balls, & Movies!"

 Welcome to

Mu Shu, Matzo Balls,  Movies, & Dance!TM

Tuesday, Dec 24th, 2013

at China Harbor (Seattle, WA)

A wonderful, fun, and delicious way to pass the time and celebrate community!

For just about the same price as dining and a movie on your own, we invite you to come and do so much more with us - your family, friends and community.  For those who were with us for "Mu Shu, Matzo Balls, and a Couple of Wise Guys"  (our live comedy show) at the Little Red Bistro in  2010 & 2011, you know how much fun it was -- really a night to remember!  Perfect for singles, couples,  groups, families, and more!

This year, in addition with dinner and movies, we're introducing an evening of interactive gaming, a new short-film festival concept, a free dance lesson, a variety dance, and late night blues.  There's something for everyone! 


            General Overview (See Event Schedule page for details) 

*PLEASE NOTE:  Dinner reservations can only be guaranteed through Dec 16th (China Harbor needs a final number to prep after then).  Tickets purchase after Dec 17th or at the door will get you into all of the activities, but food only will be on a space available basis.  We will try our best to fit you in!
