    The Asian Garden Buffet was closed for three months for renovations and reopened on Christmas Day, with a huge crowd.
    Asian Garden has now added a sushi and hibachi station, to accompany the buffet.
    “It is still one price for everything,” said owner Eric Dong. “You can have special orders at the hibachi and can also get sushi, or you can do the buffet, too. It is all included.”
    The cost for one adult buffet is $9.75.

  • Encouragement for yet another New Year

           
    They keep flying by don’t they? The years. The years seem like pages of a book that are caught by the wind. They just keep flipping over, moving relentless to the end.
    Here we are at the turn of another year. Sometimes when you are singing, you have to reset to get back on the pitch. What does that reset look like for a Christian?
