If the weather holds, this weekend is going to be a good one to get out and about. I’m planning to head down to NLGX on Sunday afternoon for a few ANZAC Day bevvies at 12SQM, Ned’s, and Mao Mao Chong. If you are into Aussie rules football, you can catch the match between the Beijing Bombers and Shanghai Tigers at 1 PM on Saturday (see here for details). Just beware of a Bomber named Bahen or he’ll sell you a team bottle opener for RMB200 before you can say shrimp prawn on the barbie.
Someone also asked me about St. George’s Day and whether or not there is anything going on besides this British Chamber of Commerce charity dinner. Indeed, there is. Luga’s Basement officially opens on Saturday tonight [yep, having a bad day with facts] with a St. George’s Party. Look for free beer, drink deals, and RMB15 hot dogs cooked just the way St. George would have liked them — either lightly seared by breath of dragon or chef of Luga.
As noted here, Enoteca has a sampling of 40 wines for RMB200 on Saturday, while Oh! Marco on Financial Street kicks off its month-long wine fair tonight, from 6 PM to 9 PM, with a tasting and discounts. Good times on the music front, with a Bad Mamasan / Chun Qui double-header tonight at Yugong Yishan from 10 PM and DH & the Hellcats rockabillying 2 Kolegas on Saturday.
