Chinese New Year

Yesterday, James, Sameer and I decided the nasty weather wasn't gonna stop us from having a full-immersion Chinese New Year's experience, so we headed down to Mott Street to usher in the year of the boar. It was your typical clusterf*ck of dragon dances,


Chinese families elbowing their way through hordes of delighted tourists,


confetti poppers going off left and right,


and trash strewn as far as the eye could see.


In other words, loads of super loud fun! They even brought back the fireworks display which Giuliani had banned way back when. We took a break to gorge ourselves on dim sum at the Golden Unicorn on East Broadway, where I spotted a halfie girl seated with her parents a few tables away--it's totally Cara circa 1985!
