Lo Hei Lunar New Year Celebration

Monday, February 25, 2019
6:30 – 8:30PM

Join us to celebrate the Year of the Pig with a unique, performative Lunar New Year dinner celebration!

The Alliance welcomes the Year of the Pig with an interactive Lo Hei dinner, performance, and open bar. Lo Hei (or Yusheng), also known as a Prosperity Toss, is a Cantonese-style raw fish salad popularized in Singapore and Malaysia. (We’ll also have a non-fish version available.) For this communal ritual, each Lo Hei ingredient is introduced with a saying symbolizing a wish for the new year, culminating in all participants shouting wishes and tossing the ingredients with chopsticks—the higher your toss, the higher your fortune’s growth!

Emcee Kate Rigg (Slanty Eyed Mama) will lead us through the ritual in a fun and festive performance.

Open bar featuring Glenfiddich single malt scotch whisky, dinner by Rasa, and dessert cakes Lady M.
