Chinese New Year

  • p

When is Chinese New Year this year? Is anyone interested in organizing a New Year feast for a pack of Hounds who want to enjoy an authentic Chinese New Year dinner (not necessarily on the eve itself)? I regret I don't know enough about the traditions surrounding the celebration to plan the event myself. (But I do love that fat choy seaweed.)

  1. I'd love to experience a true Chinese New Year Banquet, so I join Pia in hoping someone with more knowledge about where to go, and what to order will help put this together! It sounds like it has the potential to be a very joyous New Years celebration. (does anyone know which animal will represent this coming new year?)

      I, too would be happy to join the tables of a Chinese New Year banquet, especially with some guidance in tradition and taste. This year is the year of the horse, I believe.

    2. This year New Year's Eve is on Feb. 11th. And it is indeed the year of the horse.

      1. My partner Bill and I would be interested in attending.

          Count Burke and I in! Let us know.



          1. count me in.... yumm... looking forward to a good golden dumpling(dumplings made with egg as wrapper) soup. Are we going to a resturant that has chinese new year banquets? I can scan through the chinese papers to see if there are any resturants offering that. Or are we going to a specific resturant? Lastly, can we made it on a weekend?
