Photo Note: This somewhat embarrassing photo is of 20×49.com blogger Chris Jay and Lucky Palace owner Kuan Lim. Lim is in costume for the restaurant’s Halloween party in 2012.
“The theme this year is ‘Frankenstein’s Lab’,” announces Holly Lim, manager of Lucky Palace Chinese Restaurant in Bossier City. “I’m gonna be using a lot of dry ice!”
Holly is the genius responsible for the popular Chinese restaurant’s annual Halloween party, which returns for 2014, 6:30-11 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 25. During the party, the restaurant’s entire staff wear ornate costumes, special Halloween-themed food and cocktail menus are served, and the dining room is decorated with cobwebs, tombstones and skeletons. The family-friendly evening will include a costume contest, with the contest winner receiving what Lucky Palace owner and local wine guru Kuan Lim describes as “a good bottle of wine.”
Holly Lim says that she launched the annual Halloween party to have a little fun with her staff.
“It’s just something fun for the team that works here, and for our customers. You hardly ever see restaurants do anything special for Halloween,” Lim said.
If you’d like to have dinner at Lucky Palace during the annual Halloween party, reservations are highly recommended. The restaurant usually seats its last customers for the evening at 10:30 p.m., but tables are going fast for earlier in the night. Reservations may be made by calling (318) 752-1888.
A Word About Lucky Palace:
For those who’ve never dined at Lucky Palace, it can require a bit of explaining. The entrance to Lucky Palace, at 750 Diamond Jacks Boulevard in Bossier City, is through the lobby of the Bossier Inn & Suites Hotel, and can be difficult to locate if you’re not already familiar with the restaurant. Lucky Palace has a fantastic bar area, a legitimately famous wine program and a menu that includes very affordable Chinese favorites as well as more upscale “house specialty” offerings.
