Last night we were at Dave Orchard's birthday party, which was also (this year) Chinese New Year. There were red envelopes, ordered-in Chinese food, Hell Banknotes, and all the trimmings except for lion dancers and fireworks. We had two or three ethnic groups but nobody of a Chinese background, which nobody noticed until later in the evening - that's Vancouver for you.
Towards the end of the evening we had a Scotch tasting, which is not exactly traditional for the occasion.
