Chinese New Year

Gung hey fat choy! “Best wishes + congratulations. Have a prosperous, good year.” We just can’t pass up another opportunity for a New Year’s celebration! It’s the Year of the Monkey + our Drake kitchen teams are feeling inspired. Get lucky with Drake because we’ve got menus at each property to help you ring in this Chinese New Year right.

What the gung hey is Chinese New Year?

Chinese New Year is a 15-day festival in celebration of the changing seasons. Forget relying on a groundhog to let you know what’s up, this Chinese celebration rings in spring with wishes of good fortune, happiness, wealth, and longevity. How do the pros celebrate? On New Year’s Eve, get together with family + friends and don’t you dare wash that hair or those dishes… you’ll wash away all your good luck! Ring in the New Year all smelly + happy the next day then sit back and relax for another week while all your married relatives pass on their lucky money.

So how do you celebrate Chinese New Year with Drake?
