Ordinarily I'd say it depends on who's wearing the ruffles.  :D

Let me be the first to say it:  ARE WE THERE YET?

We had the greatest time at Rendezvous/Menage Ette Trois this year.  My job was nice enough to bend the rules to let me take the day before and day after a holiday off (a no-no).  Whether they will allow it next year will be a determining factor if we can attend.

But we sure want to!

I had to miss this past year; first time since I started faire way back when.
Did anyone know I wasn't there?
*joking; or am I? :P
I know, show up next year, or you shall have me dragged, or horse whipped; which ever comes first.

Raid nets 50 suspected illegal immigrants
Three restaurants targeted by feds
By MARK BELL • Gannett Tennessee • June 19, 2008

Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents raided at least three businesses owned by restaurant entrepreneur Stanley Wang on Tuesday, including The New Famous Chinese Restaurant in Nashville, Chef Wang's in Murfreesboro and the Famous Chinese Restaurant in Smyrna.

About 50 suspected illegal immigrants were identified and detained during the sweep, Nashville-based Assistant United States Attorney Lee Deneke said in a statement issued Wednesday. Those detained were citizens of Mexico, the People's Republic of China, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malaysia and Indonesia.


Wang could not be reached for comment at his home.

Milissa Reierson, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development, her department participated in the effort.

Some suspects picked up Tuesday could face federal court prosecution for any law violations not related to immigration.

The rest will go to immigration court and possibly be deported.

Federal agents, along with the Murfreesboro Police Department, also conducted an investigation at an East Clark Boulevard home in relation to the raids.

The Middle Tennessee sweep comes two months after a federal grand jury indictment aimed at Chinese restaurateurs ac cused of in ducing illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S. by providing them jobs, according to a news release on the ICE Web site.

Several employment agency owners from Georgia named in the indictments allegedly conspired with others to transport and provide jobs to immigrants who were illegally in the country from October 2006 through April.

Chef Wang's owner Stanley Wang and his wife, Margarat, moved to the Murfreesboro area approximately 10 years ago from New York City.

What's so scary? It's not like they were 50 serial killers or 50 'black widows' with a thing for poisoning the egg rolls.  :D

Actually, I would say they were the ones scared...

I'm sure we got great food and service specifically for that reason!
