Mid Autumn Festival 2021

Tuesday September 21 is The Mid Autumn Festival, a very traditional Chinese holiday. This holiday is a very important day for Chinese families who gather together to light lanterns and admire the fullest moon of the year. For this festival, it is customary to enjoy mooncakes. These delicious pastries are sliced up and shared as a family. Here at Sumiao, we love sharing this tradition with our guests. To celebrate, we’ll be giving out complimentary mooncakes to our valued guests from 9/21-9/22.

We’re also celebrating with our Galaxy Moon cocktail, a delicious drink made with prosecco and osmanthus syrup. Yum!
