Did you realize that July 28 is the 20-year anniversary — to the day — of July 28, 1986?!? We’re glad we noticed it when we did — because that gave us just enough time to throw together an 80s-themed Shanghaiist Happy Hour at Freelance Bar & Grill (we are cool with the place now) to mark the momentous occasion. Here’s all you need to know:
What: Shanghaiist Happy Hour – “I Love the 80s”
When: Friday, July 28, 7 pm – 11 pm (that’s when the special ends … we’re sure we’ll stay longer than that)
Where: Freelance Bar & Grill. 45 Yueyang Lu, by Dongping Lu (岳阳路45号,近东平路)
Drink Specials: 20 RMB for Tsingtao vodka, gin, rum, bourbon, scotch and mixers. Juices and sodas, RMB 20, as well. Guinness and Strongbow draft, 50 RMB. Heineken draft, 35 RMB. House wine, 35 RMB.
Free Food: Thai Spring Rolls, Buffalo Chicken Wings, Chicken Quesadillas and Mini Portabella Mushroom Burgers.
Music: All 80s, all the time!
Clothes and Hair: Bad and big. Best 80s outfit wins a bottle of vodka, some sexy men’s underwear and Shanghaiist T-shirts.
Cover Charge: Never
So start figuring out what you are going to wear (here are a few places to start … how do you say “acid wash” in Chinese?) and we’ll start getting the music together.
