You want authentic? Do you? Well, youre going to get it (in a good way) during the Mekong Tet 2010 Lunar New Year Festival. The two-day celebration that gives it up to Vietnamese culture isnt your watered-down, garden-variety shindig. Rather, Mekong Plaza, the southeast Asian-themed mini-mall that opened in October 2008 will serve on-the-real Vietnamese food that will make you feel like youre actually somewhere that isnt the east side of the Phoenix area. Plus, a full-scale carnival and live entertainment will go off.
Sat., Feb. 6, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 7, 10 a.m.-10 p.m., 2010
