news: Taipei Dragon Boat Festival 2009

I've never been, but I dropped by to check out some of my friends practicing for the Dragon Boat races this year.

Seems pretty cool, so if you want to check it out- here is some info from Thanks to reader Tina for asking, so that I did some googling and figured there might be others of you out there that would want to check it out.

Date: May 28 to 30, 2009

Times: 08:00~12:00 and 13:00~17:00

Race Location: Under the Dazhi Bridge at the Dajia section of the Keelung River in Taipei City (500 meters each way).


And speaking of Dazhi... does anyone have any recommendations on where to eat in that area, besides in the Miramar Mall?

xiao jiu guan (on Ming Sui Rd) has good French food or a Japanese Restaurant (san jing).. there's also a restaurant where you have to drop stones to get into the pitch-black seating area near Miramar.
