Year of the Sugar Lump

And now, we celebrate Chinese New Year with a clip from Sunday’s episode of Flight of the Conchords. You may have noticed Bret and Jemaine played a gig at 169 Bar; their video for “Sugar Lumps” was filmed at Wing Shoon Seafood Restaurant next door, which boasts a sizable dim-sum selection that includes, er, “beef balls.” The Kiwis also tried their luck as gigolos outside the tiny dumpling joint that’s a few blocks west on East Broadway. Happy New Year!
