Persian New Year 2012: any festivals, restaurant promos, Nowroz related good eats?

luckyfatima Mar 16, 2012 07:51 AM

Are there any open to the public Persian New Year celebrations in NoVA? I tried googling but didn't see anything. I like to take the kids to multi-culti events...but I am also thinking there will be interesting foods to try. In 2012 I believe Nowroz is on March 19/20.

          Are you going? If I get my chores done I might go to the Reston one today.
          Also fatima, you mentioned wanting. To try a lobster roll... On the link majmaj4 provided, I see red hook lobster truck will be in Reston tomorrow.
