The Year of the Dragon

In celebration of Chinese New Year on January 23, 2012, we will be hosting the traditional celebratory lion dance at Wild Ginger, Wild Ginger at The Bravern and The Triple Door. Culturally, the lion dance has been a Chinese New Year tradition for thousands of years. Believed to ward off evil spirits and summon luck and fortune for the upcoming year, this unique form of martial art has been regarded as a symbol of prosperity and peace; and of blessed beginnings. We can’t think of a better way to welcome the year of the Dragon then with the lion dancers.

See the lion dancers on January 21st, 2012, at 1:00pm, at Wild Ginger at The Bravern. Reservations for Dim Sum brunch are encouraged, and can be made by calling 425.495.8889.
