Go Pound Some Rice Dumplings!
"Need to release some holiday stress? Join us for Mochi-tsuki, 'rice-dumpling pounding,' at the Buddhist Temple of Chicago, 1151 W. Leland on Sunday, December 22.
There will be a brief Buddhist service at 11am followed by servings of free samples of mochi. Open to the public and all are welcome to participate in the production of mochi (smaller wooden mallets are available for pre-teens to try their hand at the pounding). Clean-up starts around 1:30pm, so come early to enjoy this traditional Japanese festival.
