Time for New Year's Eve all over again? This time it's the Chinese New Year's Eve, on Feb. 6, the one that ushers in the promise of the year 4698. This will be "The Year of the Dragon," and good fortune supposedly falls on those who observe the transition with a bang.
So take advantage of such favorable auspices and head for one of the many local Chinese restaurants that are dishing up specials in honor of the event. Among them is the high-class Haifeng at Renaissance Orlando Resort at SeaWorld (6677 Sea Harbor Drive; 351-5555), which is celebrating Feb. 4-6 with a $39 fixed-price, four-course dinner.
Start with assorted appetizers and white-asparagus seafood soup, followed by a choice of entrees (Szechwan shrimp and Shanghai bok choy in spicy tomato sauce, Maine lobster in white sauce and Hunan chicken with Asian vegetables). It's best to call for reservations.
