NYC Vegan EatUP Lunch Bunch

Come celebrate Lunar New Year - the year of the Rabbit, in Downtown Flushing, home to the second largest Chinatown in New York City. 7 train last stop, Main Street (40-minute ride from Times Square). Come immerse yourself in the festivities... busy shops, crowded streets, and red ornament decorations everywhere conveying new year's greetings! Come dressed in red to embrace the new year spirit! The following Saturday, Feb 12th, 2011 (typically 11am - 1pm) is the 15th Annual Lunar New Year parade - Flushing. The parade begins, Union St and 39th Ave and usually ends at Main St and 39th Ave. The parade runs along Main St so you can see it upon exiting the subway station. Bonus: 2011 Chinese Zodiac Horoscope - Year of the Rabbit, begins on February 3rd 2011 Most Rabbit years are quiet, positive and inspiring and 2011 looks to be heading in this direction – a refreshing change after the fast-moving and quite dramatic Year of the Tiger. Family, diplomacy and personal development will all be highlighted in 2011. Once again alternative sources of energy and green living will be under the spotlight. The arts and culture sector of society will very busy producing amazing works of art and staging important exhibitions throughout the year. Love, romance and family life are well-starred, with a renewed appreciation of loved ones and friends. Overall, it should be a fun and relatively peaceful year. Even though aggression, violence and war zones will still be in evidence, the Chinese Rabbit year favours peaceful solutions and diplomacy, so there will be a feeling that all is not lost and that hope is still very much alive. Gung Hay Fat Choy! Wishing you good health, happiness, and prosperity!!

    I have a suggestion - Let's partake in the celebration of the upcoming holiday: The Lunar New Year! The New Year, according to the Chinese calendar, starts with the Spring festival and ends with Lantern festival. In 2011, the New Year will begin on 3rd February and festivity will continue till February 17. How about lunch at Happy Buddha in Flushing? Come immerse yourself in the lunar festivities!
