12/25: Chinese Food and Movie Day



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="http://maltzmuseum.org">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
