And you thought it was just a Canadian bar. (Did you, really? I mean, they do have a Canadian map on the wall. But they also have this mantra posted, in big block letters: REAL MEN EAT BEAVER.) Shanghaiist ended up at the Eager Beaver last night after a late dinner at Anadolu — home of the 18 RMB beef doner wrap and the 25 RMB can of Tsingtao. At the Beaver, bottles of Tsingtao were 15 RMB, 50 Years of BBC News played sans sound on the flat screen and someone handed out tiny slips of paper advertising “Beaver Breaks,” an evening of “HipHop/Breakbeat/Drum’n’Bass/Ragga” from your favorite DJs The Melkman, Skyline and DJ O. Pretty much your average Wednesday night near Dongping Lu.
But turn the slip of paper over, and you’re in for something a little bit different. Here is what was printed in a faded, dot-matrix-y font that was hard to make out in the dim light of the bar:
Naughty Beaver 26.6.05
The Eager Beaver has been naughty and bought lots of Sex toys and Sexual health products. We’re having an Ann Summers type demonstration this SATURDAY NIGHT.
