  1. Looks fun! I went to one of these events years ago it seems! We watched my nephew’s group do lion dance at 99 Ranch on Sunday and visited the grandparents the weekend before. That’s about all the celebrating we did this year.

    Also, I always think there’s too much bread in steam buns (which we usually call bao) but it’s supposed to be like that!

      Hi Lynn – It was fun to go to! How cool that your nephew did that dance! Haha, yeah, sometimes the steam buns are too bread-y. I’d also prefer mine without the hard boiled egg in the middle but eh. It’s fine.

  2. Looks like a great event for foodies! 4 more months till I can eat greasy fair food. 🙂

  3. Good tactic for the food booths – make sure the food is actually fresh and made to order. None of this heat lamp nonsense!

    The event looked like a lot of fun! I don’t know what the big deal is about the light bulbs as drinking vessels. After the drink is finished, will it get reused? They would seem hard to clean as well.

    I am not a fan of steamed buns, especially after having tried that place with you. The dough is just…doughy.

      Hi CC – Boo to heat lamps! I think the light bulb vessels are just another fad. I mean, I think they’re cool but you’re right – seems hard to clean. I suppose you could use a bottle brush though! I admit I still kind of like them.
