Happy Wednesday will host a pair of Chinese New Year parties on 22 and 29 January. Fans can ring in the new on all levels of awesome: the bright lion dance invites an auspicious 2020; move to the sounds of Carnivale band’s powerful tunes; catch luck by the horns with the God of Fortune’s red packets.
Fans can have photos taken at the Happy Wednesday photo booth and participate in the #HappyWednesdayHK Best Photo Contest. Upload photos to Instagram for a chance to win a fabulous Racing Experience in adrenaline for FOUR.
The trackside food kiosk offers delicious eats to add pleasure to the festive season:
Crispy Truffle and Mushrooms Wontons with Sweet & Sour Sauce
Pan Fried Salmon and Crab Roe Potato Cakes with Lemon Mayonnaise
Chicken Wings stuffed with Minced Pork & Kimchi
Pan Fried Pumpkin and Red Bean Paste Cake
The Gallery and Stable Bend Terrace
On the two CNY party nights, fans at The Gallery and Stable Bend Terrace may take a selfie with the auspicious cherry blossom tree and join the racing trivia game. Then it’s high time to toast the health, wealth and happiness of friends before gathering to watch the horses accelerate down the home straight and flash past the finish line.
With a gorgeous view of the races, the wonderful beats of Jennifer Palor & band, and fantastic cuisine, adrenaline is the ideal venue for a CNY celebration. The dishes are as sumptuous as they are festive. The Salmon Salad, known as Lo Hai, is a must-try appetizer; its enjoyment brings delight to the taste buds and symbolizes good fortune for diners in the year to come.
The bartender’s signature cocktails of God Save the Gin: Bamboo Essence and Provencal Elegance will be available throughout the night.
