Brussels Bar & Restaurant
Noon to Midnight, September 9, 2012
Beijing’s first Beers for Books party is shaping up to be a day (and night) of frothy fun, with kid-friendly fare in the afternoon and more adult-oriented stuff at night. The draft flows this Sunday, from noon to midnight, at Brussels Bar & Restaurant to support The Library Project. See below for lists of:
- The movies and musical events and boat races and more planned for the day.
- The featured beverages, including four kinds of draft beer from Duvel-Moortgaat.
- The seven beer-themed foods created by hosts Jessie Wang and Kenn Bermel (follow them on Weibo here).
I’ll have more on the boat races between Team that’s Beijing and The Belgian Bulges and between the the Royal Moma Yacht Club and a yet-to-be-named opponent. For even more event info, see this poster from Brussels.
