Happy Chinese New Year!

Drs. Neera and Anil Chhabra were among pals wearing clothes with an Asian flair and joining in the toasts Sunday to a Happy Chinese New Year.

Simeon Wall told guests when they left to take a quarter and a nickel out of two bowls for luck. "No more. No less. One quarter and one nickel. Two coins are very lucky. They are uncirculated. It is the Chinese custom for luck" he advised.

Oh, and you can’t spend it.

You have to keep it — for a little bit of luck!
