API Equality-LA rings in the Year of the Snake at our Annual Lunar New Year Banquet, to be held on Saturday, February 16, 2013. Once again, members of API Equality-LA and our friends and allies will parade through the streets of Los Angeles' Chinatown in the 114th Annual Golden Dragon Parade. Following the parade, we will cap off the day's festivities with a bountiful ten-course banquet and celebration.
This year, the banquet will be held at the time-honored Empress Pavilion, located at 988 N. Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012. The banquet begins at 5:00 p.m. (though the time is subject to change based on when API Equality-LA reaches the end of the parade route).
This year's menu includes:
Empress Pavilion Seafood Soup Baked Pepper Salt Shrimp Mapo Tofu Dungeness Crab with Ginger and Green Onion Soy Sauce Chicken Panfried Beef with Macadamia Nuts Chinese Broccoli in Oyster Sauce Filet of Cod with Honey Mustard Sauce Yeung Chow Fried Rice Almond Jello
The cost to attend is just $30.00 per person. A special discounted rate of $20.00 is available for students, seniors, and limited-income guests.
