Dim sum on bikes and tasty fun all week long

Flying Pigeon's dim sum trip to Empress Pavilion
When I drove by King Hua last Sunday morning, I saw a big group of bikes gathered outside and knew it must be one of Flying Pigeon LA's Get Sum Dim Sum rides. The cool Highland Park seller of Chinese Flying Pigeon bikes hosts another ride this Sunday at 10 am, although it's not entirely clear whether the destination this time is King Hua or Empress Pavilion. Either way, sounds like a great way to work off the bao. Bring your bike or borrow one from them, and rsvp on their website. Note to self: Must buy new bike to replace one that was stolen!
More tasty events for (almost) every day of the week:
Friday, Sept. 26: Politics and tacos: Watch the debate at Yuca's on Hollywood Blvd. from 6-8 p.m.
Saturday, Sept. 27: The Great LA Ice Cream party, sponsored by LA Commons. Griffith Park merry go round, 2 pm -4:40 pm. Email to reserve your bowl of ice cream:LAicecreamparty@gmail.org

Thanks for the post about our shop. This weekend we are planning to ride to Empress Pavilion for Dim Sum and next week (Oct. 5th) we are taking our first Brunch Ride to San Antonio Winery just east of the LA River.

Both rides are geared towards novice riders and we do our best to stick to side streets, scenic roads and flat ground.

Pat, props on your blog. Just found it along the LA foodie blog sites. I'm an OC blogger, and it's refreshing to see your passion for this hobby that's sometimes so unexplainable, but purposeful! Great to see someone else who enjoys and celebrates food. Keep it up. Will put link on my blog to you. Best wishes, Divina
