ing room, with another 30 in the

18 to 22 pounds of smoked
salmon, 75 pounds of shrimp.
Lunch is served Monday
through Friday 11:30 am. to 2:30

Morton's of Chicago, with its
26 units, may be noted as one of

BEE'S NOW called "Dan The
Matchmaker" ... Three times
that retired Chinese restaurateur
Dan Woo has taken grandchil-
dren to Hong Kong in hopes of
meeting a mate ... and he's hit a
home run each trip.
First was Victor, then Arthur,
and most recently, Joyann The
children of Gene and Ruby Woo
were escorted around by family
friends there who could also
speak English ... and each met
their life's companion in a 100
percent score by Dan.
Forty years ago, Dan Woo
opened Hoa Kow on Nine Mile in
Oak Park with son Gene, and to-
day it is the only pioneer re-
maining in that sector ... A
second Hoa Kow opened by Gene
is in Crosswinds Mall on Orchard
Lake Road in West Bloomfield.
All three were married in
Hong Kong ... and then had a
second wedding here with lavish

boneless breast of chicken stuffed
with spinach and feta cheese,
pasta salad and an out-of-this-
world sweet table.
At the weddings of Victor and
Arthur, the challah was cut by
yarmulke-headed Norman Jaf-
fee ... For Joyann, it was Hoa

law, Jack Homer, also wearing a
Not a bad idea was the tall box
where envelopes with checks or
cash could be dropped instead of
guys bending their tux out of
shape with stuffed pockets ...
Boxed gifts were galore ... and in
the Chinese custom, Joyann was
covered with gold ... necklaces

Jerry Glassman came over to ex-
tol wonderful words about his
