Pencil This In is all the things you’d want to do this Monday through Thursday. Dance until your toes bleed to live salsa tunes at Mural, and put your feet up and relax the next day at Dada. On Wednesday, the night market event is back with local designer stuff. For Thursday, we picked an interesting LitFest event about China’s role as a producer and creator in the world. Read on for all the details, or check out our calendar for more!
Salsa Night @ Mural
Mural might have moved from that dodgy yet charming grotto near the metro station to a new grotto in the Hengshan Lu noise hub that also plays host to bowling, Phebe and other dark creatures, but the staple salsa night remains. Live band, dance action, and buy one get one free on draught beer till 9pm.
Free // 8pm // Mural // B/F, 10 Hengshan Lu, near Yongjia Lu (衡山10号, 近永嘉路)
Sub-Cinema: Beverly Hills Cop @ DADA
Eddie Murphy in his signature role, back from the good old times when he was still funny (kind of). The plot rundown: Axel, a native cop from the rough environs of Detroit, witnesses the murder of his friend right in front of his eyes. The traces of the assassin lead him to the fake boob kingdom of sunny California. It becomes crystal clear: Axel has to do Beverly Hills!
Free // Doors at 8pm, movie at 9pm // Dada // No. 115 Xingfu Lu, near Fahuazhen Lu (幸福路115号, 近法华镇路)
