President Trump is going to be in town for his sixth visit to the Winter White House.  This time his guest is going to be Chinese President Xi Jinping who is staying at Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa in Manalapan. 

There are going to be tense conversations so the Chinese President will probably want to venture out of his swanky resort to see the Palm Beaches best Chinese offerings.  So why not try and bump into him?  After all the First Lady went to the Morikami Museum with the Japanese delegation when they were in town.
