Call it the spirit of the storied spot, which has been bringing joy to the corner of Third & Fairfax for, wait for it, almost 88 years.
That's an important consideration as we begin the Lunar New Year, on Feb. 1, 2022, for that fortunate number will appear in several dishes and drinks sold around the history-rich public market.
