Don’t Drink Alone by Moonlight

Join MOFAD, Ming River Sichuan Baijiu, and Junzi Kitchen to taste, experience, and celebrate the Chinese Mid Autumn Festival! Held each year on the full moon of the eighth month of the Chinese lunar calendar, the Mid-Autumn Festival celebrates the bounties of the harvest and reunion of families.

In ancient times it was common to make offerings to the moon during the Chinese Mid Autumn Festival, the most important of which was the alcohol offering. In some parts of China and Vietnam, a ritual is made of drinking alcohol while gazing at the moon.

Come enjoy baijiu and bites under the moonlight while reciting Li Bai’s classic, “Drinking Alone by Moonlight.”
