This Weekend: Vietnamese Tet Festival at Mekong Plaza

I have a sneaking suspicion that Chow Bella readers don't really need an excuse to eat Vietnamese cuisine, but just for fun, why not celebrate the lunar new year at Mekong Plaza's Tet Festival this weekend? 

The Mesa Vietnamese shopping center (66 S. Dobson) is already home to a handful of delicious restaurants (read the review I wrote last year), and the festival will feature authentic Vietnamese eats as well.

While you're busy nibbling and wandering, check out live taiko and other musical and comedy performances, a Texas hold 'em poker tournament, carnival rides, a photography exhibit, fashion shows, and a health fair. 

Festivities take place from 5 to 10 p.m. tonight (carnival rides and games), and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
