Come for the drink specials, Wong Kar-wai-esque neon lighting, and writer Henry Chang reading from his new book Death Money. Stay for the karaoke. Part of Chang's Detective Jack Yu series, Death Money takes us from the benevolent associations of Chinatown to the take-out restaurants, strip clubs, and underground gambling establishments of the Bronx, to a wealthy, exclusive New Jersey borough. This reading in the basement bar of Asia Roma brings us into the dark and lively world of Jack Yu's Chinatown.
