  2. Stoked! Keep a look out for a Beijing trike amidst the Feb 6 Chinese New Year parade. The trike’s coming back to this “hot & noisy affair” http://bit.ly/hxIVdb for red envelopes, food, games, drumming, DIY crafts, stories & oddities about all things Chinese New Year! Remember to make a trip up to the “Ting,” secrets hidden up there!

    If you are into silly, check out Boscar Night at the British Ex Serviceman’s Club at 1143 Kingsway, Feb 26th. Its a night of glitz and glamour complete with limos and gold statuettes. People are nominated for silly things they have done, votes are tallied and the winners declared. Bring your camera and be prepared for a good laugh. Note spending more than $30 on your entire outfit would be frowned on so be sure to hit all the thrift stores and clearance outlets first.
