Entry of the Week: Sunday, March 1
Although it officially started on Feb. 19, don’t forget to usher in the Year of the Goat with a Lunar New Year celebration of seismic proportions. The Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown will feature lion dances with dancers operating in giant, ornate costumes, drums and fireworks. The parade, comprised of multiple processions, will start at the Chinatown Gate on Beach Street and continue throughout the streets of Chinatown with each procession taking a different path. Be sure to end your celebration by grabbing dim sum at Boston’s famous China Pearl restaurant at 9 Tyler Street. 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.; free.
The Year of the Dragon is upon us, and there are few better ways to celebrate the Chinese New Year than by sampling some traditional Chinese fare. At Fóumami, a restaurant in the financial district, one can taste the flavors passed down through generations in China’s Shandong province — but it won’t be the moo-shu, dumplings, fried rice and General Tso’s chicken one might expect. Fóumami’s main dish is, in fact, a sandwich.
