Chinese New Year - do I go weekend BEFORE or AFTER?

EdwinNJ | Jan 21, 201501:58 PM

tl;dr summation at bottom

Sorry if this seems too simple a question, and you'd think it would have been answered but I did a site search and nothing appropriate came up (though I didn't get to look too hard since I have to leave very soon)

But, I want to do a meetup.com event with my group for the chinese new year. I have train tickets I had saved up for a similar trip for family, so I'm just gonna use them for my group.

Will they still have the extra selection on the weekend before/after Chinese new year?

And would that be the weekend BEFORE or AFTER Chinese New Year? When I google it, it says Chinese New Year is Thursday, February 19 this year. If I can I'll do stuff with my own friends that Thursday but for the group I've gotta post something for a weekend.

tl;dr summary:
Can I expect extra obscure dim sum selections in NYC Chinatown Manhattan on the weekend BEFORE or AFTER this coming Chinese new year, which is inconveniently on a Thursday?
