Featuring a unique, sophisticated design, Sampan Kitchen is the place to go for fine dining that won’t break your wallet. Going in for lunch on a lazy Sunday afternoon, my family and I arrived at Sampan soon after it opened so there weren’t that many people there. Being seated immediately, the server brought over our menus and poured us all glasses of water.
Prompt and kind, service at Sampan Kitchen was excellent. Serving fusion Chinese food - a mix of foods of different places incorporated into many types of Chinese dishes - Sampan Kitchen offers an unique dining experience.

Martha Jane Cannary-Burke,
better known as Calamity Jane (May 1, 1852 – August 1, 1903), was a frontierswoman and professional scout best known for her claim of being a close friend of Wild Bill Hickok, but also for having gained fame fighting Native Americans.
Early life: 1852 – 1870
Cannary was born on May 1, 1852 as Martha Jane Cannary in Princeton, Missouri, the oldest of six children, having two brothers and three sisters. Robert W. and Charlotte Cannary are listed in the 1860 census living in Ravanna, Mercer County, Missouri. Robert packed his family and moved by wagon train from Missouri to Virginia City, Montana in 1865. Charlotte died along the way in Black Foot, Montana in 1866 of "washtub pneumonia". In the spring of that year, Robert took his six children on to Utah, arriving in Salt Lake City in the summer. They were there a year before he died in 1867. At the tender age of 15, Martha Jane took over as head of the family, loaded up the wagon once more, and took her siblings to Fort Bridger, Wyoming Territory. They arrived in May of 1868. From there they traveled to Piedmont, Wyoming, on the Union Pacific Railroad.
