"Happy New Year!"
I am a bit late on the posting but Chinese New Year kicked off in SF over the weekend, but the big parade this year is scheduled for Feb 7. For those who want something more low key, the San Francisco Symphony is holding their Chinese New Year celebration on Feb. 8. You can currently pre-order your tickets online if you're interested. The Chinese community street fair and carnival are also things that may be of interest.
There is a lot going on and it is worth checking out if you'll be in town. : )
