12/25: Chinese Food and Movie Day

Posted By on Wed, Dec 23, 2009 at 2:58 PM

People joke about how Chinese restaurants have one of their busiest days of the year on December 25, serving Jewish families left out of the ubiquitous Christmas hullabaloo. The href="">Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage (2929 Richmond Rd., Beachwood, 216.593.0575) pays playful tribute to the semi-tradition with its Christmas Day offering of egg rolls and fortune cookies for non-Christians or anyone who finds holiday merriment a bit bah humbug-y. They’ll sweeten the pot with family-friendly films, a scavenger hunt through the galleries and a chance to compete in “Jewpardy,” which will be beamed on a giant screen. It takes places from 1-4 p.m., and it’s free with regular admission: $7 adults, $5 students and free for kids 12 and under. — Anastasia Pantsios
