What’s Chinese New Year without stocking up on lucky charms? The Pavilions will house a little Chinatown pop-up where you can pick up everything you need to attract good vibes and prosperity: from auspicious fruits courtesy of Frutesca to charms and accessories by Crystalworks—oh, and don’t forget to grab beloved treats (Tikoy!
