For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

That time of the year is almost here, Changchun’s most famous Thanksgiving dinner at the newest Grandpa’s in the Ouya New Life mall.  This dinner is Grandpa's ninth Thanksgiving dinner and has become a beloved tradition in Changchun.

The finest and freshest ingredients available including turkeys imported from the USA will be used. Everything will be made from scratch, even  the breads and pies. Many of the recipes are from my family's kitchen and will be cooked and hosted by me to ensure the most delicious down home Thanksgiving dinner in all of China.

This dinner will take place at the New Grandpa's Kitchen in the Ouya New Life Mall (欧亚新生活). The new location will allow us to expand the dinner with a very beautiful and comfortable environment for all.

Since Thanksgiving is a family holiday and many here are without family, this is the best time to join our Changchun family and enjoy an authentic Thanksgivings dinner.  It goes without saying, the most important ingredient in any Thanksgiving dinner is the good family and friends.

Here are some details of the menu.   There will be table service at the beginning of the meal, with buffet for later.

The price of the Thanksgiving dinner is 198元.
