Dot Com Pho – The Olympic Edition

We’re calling this Dot Com Pho the Olympic Edition because of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games. However, it could have just as well been the Valentine’s Day Edition or the Chinese New Year Edition since they’re all happening at the same time. With three big happy events happening, we figured it was only right to head to Happy Pho on Main Street and King Edward to celebrate.

Our happy Dot Com crew were joined by the Affiliate Summit Blog Mistress, Heather and her daughter. Chef Aaron Koo made the trip in as well. Among the regulars were Ed Lau, Michael yurechko and Stephen Fung, who showed up last. Anyone is welcome to join us at Dot Com Pho. Follow me on Twitter to find the time and location of the next one.

For this edition of Dot Com Pho, we have a happy Olympic Chinese Valentine’s New Year, how to handle Olympic protesters, chicken hot pot, making a lemon soda, China Vs. Canada opening ceremonies, spelling edition wrong, buzzing Google Buzz and the Apple iPad is the Gadget of the Week. Enjoy!

  12. Scott Short says:

    What is the main way a Chinese New Year is celebrated?

    1. Ed Lau says:

      Eating loads of food and receiving money (if you’re not married).

  13. My goal is to be available to make it to one of these by the end of this month! I need to make it happen, would be great to meet you guys!

  14. Unfortunately, an evident problem of the Olympics is rioting. I wish it didn’t have to attract boneheads to our fine city.

  15. Agree with Ed wholeheartedly about the protesters!

  16. LOL! Looks like you guys had a great time. The chicken in the pot looked delicious. Gotta try it out.

    Wish you a belated Happy Olympic Chinese Valentine’s New Year by the way 🙂
