Food.Fun.Stuff: Terra Cotta Warrior Invasion

[ 0 ] December 7, 2009 |

If you haven’t gone to see them yet, there is still plenty of time…and plenty of food to taste. We told you last week or a couple of weeks ago that the Terra Cotta Warriors are here. Fortunately, we had the opt to see them in Xian, China which is no place to visit except to see the Terra Cotta Warriors. P.F. Chang’s has been working closely with the National Geographic Museum and are offering those who visit the exhibit a complimentary order of lettuce wraps or banana spring rolls with the purchase of any entree (*and you must bring your ticket). This rule applies to any P.F. Chang’s so if you come for a visit from LaLaLand (*Translation: Los Angeles, California), for instance, and visit the exhibit, you can go back home to your P.F. Chang’s and still get a complimentary treat with your ticket stub.

We recently took a trip over to P.F. Chang’s for an event unleashing the new “Smash” cocktail and discounts for the new exhibit. We stand corrected on how we used to view P.F. Chang’s as nothing more than a chain restaurant with some decent Asian cuisine. We were left with a new appreciation for the simplicity of calamari (*the Salt and Pepper Calamari) and how much we love shrimp in our Asian dishes especially when mixed with snow peas (*the Cantonese Shrimp). On another note, we are glad to see the upgrades they have made with their mixologist selection: The one @ White Flint knows what they’re doing. Our personal favorites are the Chang’s Mai Tai and the Smash cocktail, two of these and you’re done.

The Where: All P.F. Chang’s until April 30, 2010 (*And the exhibit is @ the National Geographic Museum from November 19, 2009 – March 31, 2010)

More Info?: If you happen to go to the restaurant before you visit the exhibit, dine in any of the nine DC area P.F. Chang’s restaurants listed here, and you will receive a special code for $2.00 off any full price ticket. The code can be used when purchasing an exhibit ticket online, by phone or at the box office.
