Rats! Have a Happy Lunar New Year

Gong Xi Fa Cai! If you have rats in your inbox, you've got friends celebrating Lunar New Year!

Our hardier readers might enjoy a trip to Chicago's Chinatown. Hop on the Purple Line to the Red Line (stop: Cermak-Chinatown) for Sunday's New Year Parade featuring a 100' mystical dragon, which takes place on February 10, 2008 at 1:00 pm on Wentworth Avenue. Before you go, read up at Wikitravel. While it would have to warm up for a parade to interest me, here is a list of restaurants and a map.

We'll be heading over to our favorite, the House of Chan, across from the train on Green Bay, for some carryout, which magically stays hot all the way to the table! The best thing about this holiday, is it lasts for a couple of weeks, so plenty of time to celebrate the beginning of the Rat Year.
