No Taste of Chinatown, Instead: SEE Chinatown

SEE Chinatown – Shop, Eat, & Explore
December 1, 2008 – February 8, 2009

From the official site:

Inspired by the hugely successful food festival, Taste of Chinatown, which draws over 150,000 food lovers to the serpentine streets around Mott Street, SEE Chinatown – Shop, Eat, & Explore will broaden a one-day event, hosted by Chinatown Partnership LDC, to an extended promotion of the downtown community. The holiday campaign kicks off December 1st to coincide with the holiday season and concluding mid February – Lunar New Year.

I loved the events in years past. I can’t help but wonder if this was planned or was seen as a salvage. How many people will want to come to an event that lasts 2 months? Doesn’t seem that special to me. The participating shops offer discounts with their products, but how much can they offer for 2 months? 20 percent off? Not that special – that’s the same I would get in a newspaper ad. Special dishes or tastes? That could be interesting. I wonder what they will offer.

  2. It’s a shame that they don’t have the street fair styled Taste of Chinatown anymore. I remember waiting an hour just to get the cheap Peaking duck bone!
