Haven't celebrated the Lunar New Year yet? You're in luck.

What's happening: 🐉 Richmond's first-ever Lunar New Year Asian Street Food Festival is Saturday from noon to 6pm at Stone Brewing.

  • The event will feature dance performances, Chinese lion dancers and so much food from bao buns to boba that co-founder Roxanne Atienza told the Times Dispatch it will take people through "the street food capitals of Asia."

Bonus picks: "Race in Richmond," an interactive exhibit by local artists that looks at how race and identity have intersected and impacted the city's past and future, is open daily through March 11 at Main Street Station. Free.

ğŸŽ­ Gold Lion Community Cafe on Hull Street is hosting its "Comedy for a Cause" show with six different acts on Friday starting at 8pm $15.
