On Friday night, models, influencers and charming creatures of every type packed into the dining room of Congee Dim Sum House on the Bowery, where Sandy Liang, the fashion designer, and Danny Bowien, the chef behind Mission Chinese, threw an event to ring in the Lunar New Year. Wearing flashes of red, in the Chinese new year tradition, they downed lychee martinis and nodded along to new body rhumba by LCD Soundsystem and the Macarena. In celebration of the year of the rabbit, Ms. Liang sold rabbit-themed jewelry pieces, which ranged in price from $32 to $325, while Mr. Bowien concocted a tribute to In-N-Out Burger: vegan kimchi pancake lettuce wraps. A small fire on the street outside briefly interrupted the festivities. When the smoke and momentary panic from the blaze cleared, guests returned to their hobnobbing and content-creating. We caught up with them and asked about their hopes for the upcoming year.

Interviews have been edited.
