The Dragon's Head Blog: Chinese New Year Banquet in Corpus Christi, Texas
On February 27th the Corpus Christi, Texas location welcomed the Year of the Fire Monkey with our traditional Chinese New Year banquet at our Santa Fe street location.
Over 80 guests attended including the Corpus Christi Chief of Police, Fire Chief, and Assistant Director of Parks & Recreation, as well as participants from Austin and Houston.
Dinner, preceded by hor d’œuvres and a hugely successful silent auction, was an eight-course gourmet Chinese meal prepared and served by a team of volunteers.
Our participants treated guests to a demonstration of the first seventeen moves during the dessert course. The festive evening concluded as happy guests wished each other a happy Year of the Monkey and claimed their auction wins.
We look forward to ushering in the Year of the Fire Rooster with equal vigor in 2017!
