We Like Dancing. We Like Lions. But Will We Like Dancing With Lions?


We’ve had a couple discussions lately about which neighborhoods still count as cool. Below 14th street doesn’t really seem to be cutting it as hipsteriffic edginess, leading some to set their sights solely on the sites below Houston. And some, the intrepid few, go below Canal. Tonight, there’s a party for them. Art Night Chinatown‘s last performance starts at 6pm. The LMDC, for some reason acting as our pipeline to the below-Canal culture, explains:

Spectators will have the opportunity to “feed the lions” or stand back and observe as colorful lions dance through Chinatown’s winding streets on August 25, 2005. This 30-minute performance, beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Bayard Street between Mott and Mulberry Streets, is the last in a series of performances staged this month as part of Art Night Thursdays in Chinatown. Art Night Thursdays also feature live music, Chinese art history workshops, martial arts demonstrations and free tea tasting.

You bring the numb-chucks, we’ll bring the Kumon.
