The Year of the Rooster in Chinatown

If you happen to be in New York (or San Francisco for that matter) in the first two weeks of February, keep in mind
that Chinatown will be
the happening place as people herald in the Year of the Rooster on February 9. Firecrackers will crack and prompt no
end of calls about gunfire to the NYPD, lion dancers will parade through the street like phantasmagoric apparitions,
and across the land, there will be a great rubbing of parts. Or something. Anyhoodle, just one of those little
reminders you might want to add to your calendar.
