City Library in downtown Salt Lake
Lehi High’s Chinese students are hosting their annual Chinese New Year Celebration on Monday, Feb. 15th at 5 p.m. Admission is $2 per person. From 5-6:45 p.m. there will be about 25 booths with Chinese cultural activities and crafts for kids of all ages, followed by a short program with a Lion Dance and Dragon Dance at 7 p.m. Restaurants will be on hand to sell food—cash only. New activities this year include: knot tying, jump rope, fan dance, button making and much more.
For a brand new Chinese New Year experience, Chinese Society of Utah is hosting its 2013 banquet at the most exquisite Brazilian steak house in Salt Lake City – Texas de Brazil. It’s the traditional Chinese celebration in a not-so-traditional but luxurious setting.
Location: Texas de Brazil at City Creek Center, 50 S. Main St., SLC.
Date: 2/24/13. Registration: 5pm; Dinner: 5:30pm
We apologize for the last minute change. However, we believe this is a great benefit to our members, as the dinner is still $15/person for CSU members and $45/person for non-members (regular price at the restaurant is $43 + tax + tips). There will be plenty of prize drawings as planned.
If you haven’t RSVP, don’t miss this one time only opportunity. Again, seats are limited. Please RSVP with Ling-Ling Chen 801-712-8538, email@example.com. Like our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/chinesesocietyofutah
