Night Market Comes To Chinatown

Chinatown by day is interesting, occasionally fascinating, and always a minor adventure for those who walk the earth with their mouths wide open.

Chinatown at night? Alternately awesome and deeply creepy, with a smell like no other neighborhood in the city and a vibe like the opening scenes of Big Trouble In Little China. Which is, of course, why we’ve been looking forward to the Night Market coming to this ‘hood since it was first announced.

Well, now the night is almost upon us, and details about the vendors have just been announced.
