Gung Hai Fat Choy!

Wow! The dragon doesn't fool around with wimpy fireworks.  A reader sent in the above clip of the Uptown dragon dancing in front of some intense firecracker explosions and says:
"Just wanted to share this footage of Chinese New Year at Nam Tai Nam Market yesterday. These aren't your run-of-the mill firecrackers. It almost looks like they have a pyrotechnic crew blowing the front off the grocery store! Very impressive."

Chicagoist has seven or eight photos from the Uptown Year of the Dragon celebration yesterday.  "Here are some photos from Saturday's festivities along Argyle St. in Uptown, where lion dancers visited local businesses to bring prosperity in the New Year."
