While we were planning Ethiopian food,(see thread below if you wannah go!) Chuck S expressed interest in Dim Sum, and 9lives wanted to do a Chinese New Year thing on Tues....What's the interest in doing Dim Sum on Sunday, when Ctown will probably be celebrating, or a dinner on Tues, when Ctown will still be celebrating? Both times are sure to be crazed, but HEY, that's the point!!
There is a parade, and lion dancers, probably on Sunday....I've actually only been in NY, where lion dancers came thru every dim sum place!! Judging by the aftermath on the streets, TONS of firecrackers!! For me, it's just an excuse to eat more Chinese food, but there are traditional foods whose look, or similarity in pronunciation symbolizes wealth, health and happiness for the coming year. Melanie Wong describes some of the traditional foods in the link below, from the SF Board.
