Year of the Dragon

My friend Tao organized a dinner in honor of Chinese New Year on Saturday night, and a group of us merrily celebrated at a restaurant on Mott Street in Chinatown.

After our very tasty meal, we headed to Apothéke, an apothecary-themed mixology bar tucked away on tiny Doyers Street, where I took this picture. The city was quiet, and soft glow of the streetlights illuminated the remaining snow from the morning storm. Today, I read about the history of this little lane, which has quite a colorful past. In fact, Apothéke's space was once an opium den, and the bar has quite a unique atmosphere...It's worth a visit!
