Hey Stephen. I was cruising through the site and saw you had a brewers shirt in your profile pic. My fiance and I are moving to Shenzhen at the end of July but we live in Milwaukee now.
If you had time during happy hour one day I would love to buy you a beer and ask some questions about Shenzhen. Let me know, it's not everyday you have people from Milwaukee going to the same place in China!
Hey there Stephen.

"Hi Storm, How are you? I would like to get the STREET EATS!! group together to sample some street food. Do you have any suggestions??? Where to meet? Places to go? Any input would be appreciated."
A bit too tired to think straight right now. But I think choosing an entire district or perimeter to "conquer" might be one way to go about it. Key considerations:
1) Time: Because a lot of the vendors begin selling at dinner time through 1-2AM, etc.
2) Walking or not?
*That's the tricky part. If you try to converge ppl on foot be agreement, for sure some may show up more up to it than others. Others will be knocked out after trying this or that dish, etc. If by transport, then...hmmm. Problem, I think is, Shenzhen is not that big. It's like comparing Chinatown in NY, Philly or Cali to Chinatown in London or Manchester...Huge area to cover.
3) So, geography is the trickiest issue.
*If the object is simply to "limit the scope", and take say, a block...That sounds doable. But you could be stuck with bad food and not much to sample.
**Even simpler: divide teams to go get food from different parts, and then converge say at a single location...
PROBLEM WITH THAT:
1) Cold (possibly unhealthy) food on arrival, if not heated well, or who knows.
2) Another: for all all of the above...Too much sampling means it could be hard to identify the source of food that for example causes poisoning, etc. Let's face it: some are more susceptible to food poisoning than others.
