I guess I own porkchop house...Gordon asked me to set up a dinner at porkchop house as a booksigning and talk about his recent book, Building Community, Chinatown Style. I kinda sat on it for over a month and finally did the graphic for the event.
I've know Gordon probably since about 1968. I knew him through my involvement with the Chinatown North Beach Youth Council. He was involved in the community and just plain hanging around as we were all young back then. We were very idealistic as well. Fate has been kind to him. One thing after another led him to naturally form the Chinatown Community Development Center. The organization has been in existence for more than thirty five years now.
Gordon retired about 3-4 years ago and has written a book about his experience.
So the dinner is on August 22nd at Porkchop House. It's a no host dinner so please bring your wallet. Prime rib is going for $14.99. Gordon's book will be on sale for $20. He'll be signing them as well.
