Mandarin Oriental Celebrates Year of the Snake

Celebrations of the The Chinese New Year (aka the Lunar New Year) continued Tuesday evening at the IMG_7295Mandarin Oriental as the east-meets-west luxury hotel continued the cool culture clash theme with food and fun at its annual Spring Festival celebration.

Heralding the Year of the Snake (though there was a costumed Dragon on parade!), the event featured live dance and musical entertainment, masks, fortunes, a photo booth and mesmerizingIMG_7298 decor — like that snake-crafted ice sculpture!

Guests were greeted in the Mandarin Oriental lobby with a string quintet, then led to a bountiful buffet complete with carving stations for both freshly roasted pig and Peking duck as well as a variety of other Asian-inspired delicacies.
