American comedian/actor Aziz Ansari (Tom Haverford on NBC’s Parks and Recreation) is visiting Shanghai this week with Parks and Recreation screenwriter Alan Yang (pictured). No gigs or anything, just a vacation. He’s already done the obligatory meet and greet with Haibao and eaten an unhealthy amount of our city’s famous soup dumplings. As his Twitter bio suggests, Aziz “likes food a lot.” He also likes cocktails. He’s got a little more time in Shanghai, so if you have any recommendations for either, leave them in a comment.
(FYI: New episodes of Parks and Recreation start January 20.)
