Tet is just around the corner

Tet, the Vietnamese festival celebrating the Lunar New Year, is just around the corner.  2010 is the year of the tiger, a symbol of bravery.  I think I’ll head over to the Westbank to St. Agnes Le Thi Thanh Church, 6851 Le Thi Thanh, Marrero, for the church’s annual Tet celebration this weekend (Feb. 6 from 5 to 11 p.m., and Feb. 7 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.). 

I’ll be out of town for my favorite Tet celebration, the big three-day festival at Mary Queen of Vietnam Church, 14001 Dwyer Blvd., New Orleans (Feb. 19 from 6 to 11 p.m., Feb. 20 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. and Feb. 21 from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.)  Last year’s festival was fun.  In addition to the wonderful array of Vietnamese foods, new-to-the-neighborhood vendors offered their own traditional foods, ranging from menudo and tacos to char-grilled oysters.
