Zimbu is exhausted after a week full of days spent manipulating the global currency markets and nights spent partying hard with those (still unemployed) Fuwa, thus Halloween might not be in the cards for the monkey this year. Not that there is a shortage of events. From tonight’s Yugong Yishan bash with Randy Able Stable, Not There and Christmas to the Yen Fetish party in 798, from Saturday’s Spooked party at Lantern to the 20rmb Sangria for the costumed at Enoterra, there is lots going on. Even new bar Real Wine on Workers Stadium West went all out on decorations. For dozens of parties, see these posts on The Beijinger and City Weekend.
One not listed there is the second annual Subway Loop Party on Saturday. This is a chance to share that Angry Birds, slutty nurse or Green Lantern costume — or even that Lady Gaga-inspired chuanr dress — with the general public. The starting point: Dongzhimen Station, at the Xizhimen-bound end of Line 2, at 9 PM. From the invite:
You can join the party at any station on line 2. The Halloween party train will be traveling COUNTER-CLOCKWISE from Dongzhimen. The second stop on the party train is Yonghegong Lama Temple. Board through the LAST CAR of the train. After the party leaves Dongzhimen station, we don’t know how long we’ll stay on line 2. (Last year some of us stayed on the subway for two loops). But if you want to be at the party, try to be there on time…
Needless to say, this event is BYOB.
