Lunar New Year Celebration 

When: Sun., Jan. 29, 12-4:30 p.m. 2012
Price: museum admission

Mochi — short-grain rice pounded with huge mallets and rolled into delectably soft, subtly flavored, chewy morsels — is a New Year's standby in Japan, where its whiteness mirrors the clouds and snow. Mochi-pounding and other Asian cooking demonstrations are part of a Lunar New Year celebration at the Oakland Museum of California (1000 Oak St., Oakland) on Sunday, Jan. 29. Other activities include storytelling, dance, acrobatics, and rapping. Noon, free with museum admission ($12 general; $9 seniors/students; $6 youth; free for children eight and under). 510-318-8400 or
