I can’t believe it…another Choice Eats has come and gone!
In a previous post, I had mentioned that this year would be my third time going. However, I was looking back at some old stuff I had saved from previous events, and I realized that I had miscounted. This year was my FOURTH year. I’ve missed only one out of the all the Choice Eats events. It seems like just yesterday I attended my very first Choice Eats…time really does fly!
Chuc Mung Nam Moi! Happy New Year!
Monday (Jan. 23) kicked off the first day of the Vietnamese New Year. If you haven’t realized it yet, it’s the Year of the Dragon!
Some people refer to it as the Chinese New Year, but many other Asian cultures observe this holiday too. In Vietnamese culture, it’s called Tet. Celebrations last for 3 days, and it is THE most important holiday of the year. While growing up, holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas were just an average day in my parents’ house.
Tickets for the Village Voice’s 5th Annual Tasting Event, Choice Eats, go on sale Wed, Jan. 18 (that’s tomorrow) at noon! This is one of the few food events I look forward to all year long. I’ve attended this annual event twice so far, and I’ve had a blast every time. I recommend it to anyone that loves to eat!
