It’s almost time to celebrate the Chinese New Year! Tomorrow, Friday, January 31, marks the first day of the year of the Horse. To celebrate,head into Philadelphia’s vibrant Chinatown and attend the Chinese Lunar New Year Banquet at Rising Tide Restaurant from 6-9pm or try other area restaurants that will also be joining in the festivities. Check out Bar Ferdinand and taste seven courses of tapas inspired by the Chinese New Year. If you miss the events on the New Year itself, don’t worry!
