This being my 1st year working in Chinatown I am getting excited to see what festivities are around to partake in without feeling too much like the "outsider" I am here. Do the restaurants offer "special" items during the new year celebrations that aren't offered the rest of the year? I haven't really experimented much down here as its all a mystery to me. What would be the one item I must try during the New Year Celebrations?
When is the main celebration/parade does anyone know? I would love to be able to watch it this year.
