Another New Year Celebration

2009 is the Year of the Ox... at least, it will be in a few weeks.  Want to celebrate in style?  The folks with the Asian Pacific Resource and Cultural Center are hosting their annual Asian New Year Celebration Dinner on Saturday, January 24th at Chinese Pavilion Hunan Restaurant in Sherwood.  It's a nine course authentic and traditional Asian dinner, and a pretty good time, too.  I've been to this celebration several times over the years, and the hubster and I always enjoy ourselves.  Specialty dishes we've encountered include such delicacies as jellyfish, bird's nest soup, thousand year eggs, nian gao (sweet sticky rice pudding), and special dumplings.  There's always something for everyone.  The evening isn't just about food -- there's also door prizes, sing-alongs, and an auction that benefits the Asian Pacific Resource and Cultural Center.  If you like to sample cuisine that's not your standard American fare, mark the event on your calendar.  Tickets are $26 for adults, $18 for kids 8-12 and $12 for kids 4-7.  For more information, contact Wilma Houston at (501) 224-2490 or (501) 366-7035 (daytime) or at before January 16th.
