It's never too early to plan weekend activities, and since tomorrow is the Lunar New Year, Gothamist thinks it might be fun to check out the New York Chinese Cultural Center's 20th dance festival. There will be various dances, musical performances, and Peking Opera. There's nothing like cultural enrichment while watching people dressed up as monkeys trying to hit each other with sticks.

Tickets are on sale via Ticket Web for the three weekend performances at NYU's Skirball Center. Tickets run between $22 and $32 each, which should be covered by your lucky money. Also this weekend is the Chinatown parade on Sunday.
