Gung Hey Fat Choy: A Chinese New Year primer

February 8th, 2010

Outside of China, few places celebrate Chinese New Year as much as Las Vegas. Here's how (and why) to get in on the party.

  • What one Strip chef really thinks of Yelp reviews and the people who write them.

  • If you had to rank the top qualities of a successful chef, his cooking ability would be near the bottom.

  • A no-BS explanation of the different types of papaya salad and how to order and eat them like an expert.

  • From big-name DJs to some awesome live music picks, how to get your party on this LDW.

  • From the attempted assassination of Bob Marley to post-Superstorm Sandy narratives, great reads to keep on your bedside table.

  • Dance past and present this season at the Nevada Ballet Theatre.

  • The punk icon talks Beauty & Ruin and remembers his favorite Vegas moments.

  • The best of the arts in galleries, on stages and even in the old Western Hotel.

  • The Hunger Games returns -- and so does Dumb and Dumber.

  • The Roots founder/drummer and Tonight Show bandleader brings his Soul Train-inspired dance party to the Linq this weekend.

  • Unlike its subject, who performed feats that people remembered their whole lives, the History Channel program is entirely forgettable.

  • The Martha Stephens and Aaron Katz directed flick is a ramshackle travelogue about two senior citizens taking a vacation to Iceland.

  • Do you remember when Henderson got its own Kwik-E-Mart? We do.

  • Bonus points for wearing a Milo Goes to College T-shirt.

  • Expect a zombie horde, clown army and possibly an epic helicopter entrance (pending FAA approval, of course).

  • “He was brutal when he had to be and beneficent when the opportunity arose."

  • A stoner comedy is the last thing you would expect from the creator of Mad Men.

  • Brosnan isn't James Bond, but the comparisons are unavoidable.

  • It's like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory—with clothes.

  • Boise's indie veterans headline the Bunkhouse's reopening bash on August 25.

  • Do you know what phase of your cycle it is, Capricorn?

  • Your Face in Mine explores rebooting your genetic history.
