Chinese New Year at Thunder Valley

I've decided to head to another location for Chinese New Year, this happens to be Thunder Valley. I don't think I've been anywhere specifically to see a Chinese lion dance in another city (other than San Jose, and that was by coincidence). Two things: One, is louder than I originally expected, and two, it was different than what I've normally seen. Especially the 'lion goes through the casino' part, where lots of people are trying to get a picture of the dragon as it goes by.

Two dragons and two lions was a bit much in that small space, it's hard to see all of them at the same time... given how close you are to them (around 10 feet).

I got my calendar and some red envelopes from that event. (In reality, it doesn't take too long to get to 50 points when you're at the table for some time. Pulled in around 500 points in two hours of play, and didn't lose any money in the process. I'm still 14k short to next tier though, but I don't think it'll happen anytime soon with my current income level.)
