Expect this Haidian watering hole to have a pub quiz, with a USA focus, followed by live music.

Josh Lolly says entry if free, but if the place gets packed, they might direct people to nearby Pyro for beer pong, pizza and rmb10 PBR.
A special session of the all-you-can-eat crawfish event, normally held Sundays, is slated for Wednesday, says Brandon Trowbridge.
