Year of the Horse — Happy Lunar New Year!
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.
