Where? San Jose, probably at the usual place, the San Jose Doubletree Hotel.
Why? One year I had to work through New Year's Eve, so I had a Chinese New Year's Eve party instead. There wasn't much competition from other local parties, and people seemed to like it, so it stuck.
This year I have the Taiwanese live-action drama of Marmalade Boy, so we can actually have some Chinese entertainment too.
Look for more details as the next Year of the Rooster approaches.
