Wear sneakers to Hop Sing Laundromat on New Year’s Eve.
On New Year’s Eve, Hop Sing Laundromat is loosening its legendary dress code for one night only. From 10 p.m. till closing, Lê is waiving his must-wear-shoes policy and offering guests the chance to wear sneakers.
Lê tells us, guests have asked for the opportunity to break one of the rules and he feels that there’s no better night than the night everyone else is getting dressed up and paying a premium for just about everything.
Hop Sing opens at 5 p.m. on New Year's Eve and the dress code will be in effect till 10 p.m. As always, there is no cover at the Chinatown bar. Hop Sing will also be closed from Tuesday, December 23 to Thursday, December 25.

Jose Garces is rolling out big changes for the second season at Volvér, his restaurant at the Kimmel Center. Effective immediately, the ticketing requirement has been abolished and starting Wednesday, September 24th, the menu format will change.
As of today the restaurant will no longer require tickets purchased in advance. Reservations can now be made through OpenTable or by calling the restaurant directly. A credit card is required to hold a reservation, similar to how some other restaurants do.
Starting on September 24th, the dining options also change. Gone is the pre-theater and performance menus. The restaurant will have two tiers, a six-course tasting menu for $75 or a twelve-course tasting for $150, not including tax tip or beverages. An optional beverage pairing will be begin at $95.
This marks a drop in price for Volvér where the performance tasting for two would set a couple back $448 with tax and tip. Now the twelve-course dinner for two would come in at $384 with tax and tip but no alcohol.
