In typical Shanghai form, there are more Halloween parties this Saturday then you can count (including, of course, our bound-to-be fantabulous Rampage bash). But here’s another option we’d love to endorse …Shanghai LGBT’s 4th Annual Halloween Pub Crawl.
From Wikipedia: A pub crawl (sometimes called a bar tour, bar crawl or bar-hopping) is the act of one or more people drinking in multiple pubs or bars in a single night, normally walking to each one between drinking.
Due to a fire at the neighboring restaurant, the traditional starting venue, Frangipani, has been changed to Eddy’s Bar (1877 Huaihai Zhong Lu near Tianping Lu). Hot tip: if you’re really gagging for a ticket and they are all sold out, just turn up on the 31st to see if there are any no-shows. Chances are fair to good a seat will be open. If not, you can always try to sit on someone’s lap! More details below
Date: Saturday October 31, 2009
Time: 8pm to 2am
Location: 11 bars all over Shanghai
Cost: 100 RMB including transportation, games, and a free drink or two (150RMB if you buy after Oct. 30)
Notes: First year: 1 bus, second year: 2 buses, third year: 3 buses… This YEAR: 4 BUSES, 200 passengers, all the LGBT bars, 1 NIGHT!!
Finally, D2 and Shanghai Studio will hold Halloween parties the same evening and are included in the pub crawl itinerary. The organizers said they only have 20 tickets left. Gay, straight, or in-between, if you want to hang with the homos and a fag hag or two this Saturday, call Dylan asap to buy a ticket at 139 1755 6045.
