Eight is a lucky number in China, so for each of the 88 days until the 2008 Olympics, I will strip-mine my brain to unearth a thought related to Beijing and The Games. That’s one thought per brain cell. It’s called teamwork, people!
With the Olympics just around the curve, is it not time that a bar arises that sports a name that evokes the spirit of the Games – or at least makes reference to them? A few suggestions:
- The Pommel Horse
- The Oar and Kayak
- Zappas (after the Greek who helped get the modern games going)
- The Springboard
- Rings of Fire (would work well for a place with Sichuan food)
- The Starter’s Pistol
- The Discus and The Hammer
- The “I went to the Olympics and spent all of my time in this bloody pub” Pub
Best of all would be to find a pair of establishments, side by side, and call them The Parallel Bars.
Thought 1: If they build it, we may come
Thought 2: “Whether or not” in Sanlitun
Thought 3: Living the lowlife on Lotus Lane
Thought 4: The F&B scene takes a pre-Olympics breather?
Thought 5: Flaming Fuwa
Thought 6: Continental drink
