Let’s celebrate with the throwing of water and great food.

For the second year in a row, the Office of Commercial Affairs of the Royal Thai Embassy has organized Thai Restaurant Week to celebrate Songkran, or Thai New Year, April 13-19. DC and Boston area Thai restaurants will celebrate Songkran, each in their own unique way, offering special menus, discounts, or traditional Thai New Year’s performances.

My favorite Thai restaurant (I ate there last night) Pana Thai, (7224 Muncaster Mill Road, Derwood, MD 301-990-8501) is participating!

More information and a full list of participating restaurants is available on the Royal Thai Embassy website or in the Washington Post article Spring Brings Thai Specialties.
