Traditional Lion Dance:
Lions in the Chinese Lion Dance are considered divine animals. They symbolize strength, courage and wisdom. Chinese lion dance is often performed during the Chinese New Year season and other Chinese festivals. During the lion dance performance at the Lucky Bamboo China Bistro patrons may feed the lions with red envelopes with money inside. This is a way to ask for good luck and good fortune for the year. (You may ask for red envelops at the Check-In table.)
You may bid on auction items by simply putting your names on the bidding sheets. The auction will close right before the 9th course is served. The proceeds from the silent auction will benefit CAAN programs.
Looking forward to seeing you! Wishing you a very happy Chinese New Year!
