Dim Sum on Sunday, Feb 6th... impact of Chinese New Year?

dot_boston | Jan 21, 2011 12:29 PM

Hi All!
I'm a long time reader, first time poster. I'm getting together a group for dim sum and the date that works for most of us is Sunday, February 6th. We are going to a place in Chinatown - don't know exactly which one yet but I have found great options from other threads here.

Here's my question: given it's right after Chinese New Year, is this a bad time to go? Will it be like going out on New Year's Eve? Will there be hordes of folks celebrating CNY - which could be kind of fun but a long wait? Or will most be at home celebrating with their families (including the A team that would normally be in the kitchen)? I don't go for dim sum very often so I want to make sure I'm not setting up myself and the group for a less than ideal experience before we even walk in the door.
