The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Chinese New Year is always an enjoyable festival for those not familiar with the Chinese culture. You learn new things and have fun all while enjoying a new experience. Most importantly, if you were one of the few people working on New Year’s Eve, you get a chance to celebrate another New Year.

If you follow our calendar, this Saturday, January 28th, the World Financial Center will be hosting a FREE celebration for the Chinese Lunar New Year for all ages. Beginning at 1pm, you’ll be able to participate in some arts & crafts such as traditional techniques of paper cutting, dough figurines, face painting, and calligraphy.

Performances brought to you by the New York Chinese Cultural Center will begin at 2:30pm. The audience will be serenaded by gravity-defying acrobatics, festive musical ensembles and costumed folk dancers. Fear not, folks because the lion-dance will make its presence felt.The festivities end at 4pm, freeing you up for the rest of the evening.

Story time for a Broke-Ass Mom

Enrique Grijalva - Mr. Minimum Wage

Enrique Grijalva - Mr. Minimum Wage

My father came, my mother saw...and I conquered. I encourage children to do drugs, I buy alcohol for teenagers, and I drink beer with the homeless. In my spare time, I attend art galleries for the FREE booze while rubbing elbows with modish elephants. I also hammer six-inch nails into small penises. Stuart knighted me as Broke-Ass King of New York. You've been warned.
