February 10th – Until they are gone!

Join fellow Tacoman’s as they search high and low for beautiful treasures created by the lovely Ms. Monkey. Every Lunar New Year, gorgeous glass orbs and medallions with an emblem of the new year's Chinese Zodiac animal are hidden (quite well) all over the city. These incredible glass creations are a several months long labor of love by Ms. Monkey and her team of glass makers. This year is EXTRA special in the Douville home as it is Catie’s year, the year of the dragon! While they are initially hidden in the wee hours of the Lunar New Year, they can be found for weeks and sometimes months to come. Keep an eye out, wherever you are!
