This being the day of our official global launch and all, we here at Shanghaiist realize that for many of you this is your first visit to our humble abode. We invite you to stay awhile and snoop around — just don’t touch our beer. (Seriously, it’s for your own good.) Here are 10 of our favorite Shanghaiist links since we moved into the place:
Culture: Umbrellas and the Chinese economy
Books: Shanghai photographed on the eve of revolution
Recreation: Places to swim in Shanghai that aren’t nasty
Music: Watch out bitches, Ice-T is coming to town
Culture: It’s not too late to celebrate National Maritime Day!
Movies: Can Batman outduel China’s DVD pirates?
Food: Shanghaiist bites into one of the first Chinese Whoppers
Travel: Food at Shanghai’s airport really, really sucks
Media: A hostile oil bid or a hostile press?
Music: The King of Mandopop and his crucifix
