Piece from Adorn at Two Cities Gallery
Looks like this weekend has something to please everyone, so take your pick and enjoy the last vestiges of September and the relative buzz before we all clear out for the national holiday.
Friday: Best Scenario + Punchline Comedy Club
If you haven’t had enough debauchery this month, put on your sexiest shoes and head over the Bund to begin your night with aperitivos at Xex followed by a free shuttle to dance (waltz?) the night away at Martini Bar to the tunes of Giacomo Puccini.
Note: space is limited so call ahead to reserve.
8pm Martini Bar & Sex: 1/F, Bund 6; 6 Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu 中山东一路6号，外滩六号1楼
But if you’re looking for more of an ab work out, head over to O’Malleys tonight where Punchline Comedy Club is introducing three new acts. Mandy Knight and Carey Marx who both hail from the UK, and Karl Spain from Ireland. Also, if hunger calls after the show, Vargas Grill is offering 10 percent off the bill if you show your ticket.
9-11:30 PM. O’Malley’s Irish Pub, 42 Taojiang Lu near Hengshan Lu (桃江路42号 近衡山路) ¥325
Saturday: Adorn + Bed Grand Re-Opening
Two Cities Gallery debuts its Adorn exhibit. Any accessory aficionado should make sure to head over there and see how contemporary artists create jewelry from non-traditional materials. Their pieces are more than just simple accoutrements, they encompass fine-art and design.

Bed is finally re-opening its doors this Saturday, so now you can once again ask someone in Shanghai if they want to “go to Bed with you” and not be a lewd creep. If you weren’t lucky enough to score exclusive tickets, after 11pm the party is open to all. So will we be seeing you in Bed?
