Like last year, I went down to Red’s Place in Chinatown to experience the stroke of midnight to usher in the new lunar year of the horse. They had a long string of firecrackers that extended half way down the block.
The trouble is… there are very few Chinese in Chinatown on the lunar new year eve for some reason. It’s mostly white people going crazy with firecrackers. The whole street on Grant between Washington and Jackson becomes a free for all with firecrackers, fireworks and M-80’s. It could be pretty dangerous with those M-80’s being carelessly thrown.
Well….it’s another new year. Like always I wish everyone a healthy, happy and prosperous new year.
Had a great time at the official closing of my five month first ever exhibit of all my Nihonmachi Street Fair posters at the National Japanese American Historical Society’s Peace Gallery. For the occasion I drew dragons in front of about fifteen people who attended. Then we cooked some yakisoba and gyoza’s on my electric skillet.
I felt everyone had a good time. Art and food is always a winner. From here the poster exhibit will eventually be taken down. They don’t have plans for the next exhibit yet, but when they do, they’ll begin taking it all down.
