All the things you’d want to do this Monday through Thursday. On the schedule this week: The “ladies” night that is not sexually discriminating, comedy in 2 languages, yummy German dishes and fresh beer, Them & Us live at Club Ibiza, and a glamourous fashion night at M1NT. Yes that’s right, devour tons of sausages and beer and watch skinny models flaunt it the night after at M1NT! Read on for all the details, or check out our calendar for more!
Monday Mash-Up @ Zapatas
Sometimes it kinda sucks to have all those ubiquitious ladies nights in Shanghai if you’re either a dude or not a lady. Guys, keep your ears open: On Monday night from 10-11pm, you are the ones that get free beer and margaritas. No, that’s not quite correct, the girls get the same deal and everybody’s happy and hammered. Sounds cool, huh? And if you cannnot quench your thirst within that one short hour: standard drinks are only 25RMB from 11-12pm.
Free flow beer & margaritas 10-11pm // Zapatas // 5 Hengshan Lu, near Dongping Lu (衡山路5号, 近东平路)
ART LABOR Gallery’s 6th Anniversary Group Show
Art Labor celebrates the gallery/artist agency’s 6th anniversary with an abundance of artists on display: Works by Douglas Coupland, The Leroy Brothers, Aaajiao, Chen Hangfeng, Wang Qing, You Si, Vladimir Dubko, Tu Ningning, and a video piece featured from the gallery’s collection by Tracey Moffat. “This collective of somewhat disparate works ranging from video and installation to ink and acrylic paintings loosely concerns itself with the notion of cyclical ruts, of the banal and yet beautiful, and of a future from which we seek an escape.” The show is on until 20 October
Free // 11am-7pm // Art Labor // 570 Yongjia lu, Building 4, #411 (永嘉录570号， 4楼411)
Comedy Open Mic @ MASSE
Kung Fu Komedy brings you a weekly twin event at Masse: Chinese and foreign comedians grab the mic to make your night after a long day of work. Tuesday in Chinese, and Wednesday in English! And besides all the comedy that is going on, Masse is a cool and relaxed place to hang out, eat or play darts and pool, too.
9pm // MASSE // 5-6/F, 219 Jinxian Lu, near Shaanxi Nan Lu (进贤路221号5-6楼, 近陕西南路)
German Wednesday @ Shanghai Brewery
Do you have cravings for crispy schnitzel or sausages that don’t taste and look like they’re made from meat offcuts and shredded styrofoam like most of the stuff they sell in supermarkets here? All German dishes are 20% off tonight, and there’s still the daily happy hour from 2-8pm to sweaten the deal.
5-11pm // Shanghai Brewery // 15 Dongping Lu ,near Hengshan Lu (东平路15号近衡山路)
DREAM City 4th Edition Fashion Show @ M1NT
“WHO SAID WOMEN NEED TO BE DOCILE CREATURES?”, the organizers of this fashion event ask. We pretend not to have a clue what this tells us about their show, but our guess is not-so-docile, perky mannequins. German designer Monika Figlewicz presents her newest collection of elegant and asymmetric pieces at M1NT. Limited presale tickets can be booked with
150RMB pre-sale // 7:30pm (first show at 8pm) // M1NT // 24/F 318 Fuzhou Lu, near Shandong Lu (福州路318号, 近山东路， 高腾大厦24层)
Them & Us @ IBIZA
Another Thursday, another cool act at Ibiza! Them & Us is former Basement Jaxx vocalist Ami Carmine and beatboxer Killa Kela, freshly flown in from London to give you an incentive to go out despite the fact that weekend is still one day away. Check out their Facebook page for infos and links to their music – influenced by drums, hip hop, electro and synthie sounds.
100RMB incl. 1 drink // 1/F, No. 428 Jiangning Lu, near Wuding Lu (江宁路428号1F, 近武定路)
