The 5pm Post – Chinese New Year Celebration and Parade on Sunday

This is always a fun celebration. The parade is always my favorite but you gotta get their early to get a good view (though not sure how the Super Bowl will affect the crowd size…)

Chinatown Coffee Co. is taking advantage of the holiday to create a crazy concoction:

From an email:

“Chinatown Coffee Co. will celebrate Chinese New Year on Sunday, February 6th, 2011 from 2pm to close. To ring in the Year of the Rabbit, Chinatown Coffee Co. will feature “The Crazy Rabbit” cocktail, composed of absinthe and champagne. Additionally, the shop will offer its customary bar, coffee, and tea menus.

Chinatown Coffee Co.’s Chinese New Year celebration will be held on the same day as DC’s annual Chinese New Year parade on H Street, NW in Chinatown. The parade is from 2pm to 5pm and will feature a traditional Chinese Dragon Dance, Kung Fu demonstrations, and live musical entertainment.

Chinatown Coffee Co. is located at 475 H Street, NW, on the corner of 5th and H.”

And from MPD:

“Year of the Hare Chinese New Year Parade Street Closures
