Patrick’s Farewell Dinner @ Brazilian BBQ

There comes a time in life when you have to say “Goodbye!”

But there’s exactly two good things about it:

a) there’s a farewell party

b) you’ll see each other twice in life

So here’s the deal:

Come to the Brazilian BBQ Restaurant “Picanha” on Thursday (May 26) 7pm and enjoy a fantastic night with us! The food is outstanding (All-You-Can-Eat for approx. 100RMB) and the owner always picks the right tracks to keep the hips swinging afterward!

Later on that night we’ll do a “bar crawl” at Laowaitan and end this party-night with watching the sun rise over the river!

So get ready for an unforgettable party night and SUIT UP! 😀

Dress code: chique

Everybody’s welcome!

See you, folks!

Beatbox & Báijiǔ Session

It’s finally here! Bring a bottle of Ningbo’s finest Báijiǔ (6RMB or lower) and the craziest sounds you can think of. We’re having a huge beatboxing session, the more the messier. We’ll start with an open jam and then we’ll get organized and start making some songs. If you can rap in Chinese, the Báijiǔ is on the house! 😀

Meet us next Wednesday (May 25) at 9pm at KFC (Gulou) – we then go to the Moon Lake Park or any other authentic beatbox spot!

Dresscode: Gangsta (cap, hoody, baggy pants!)

Bring the beat on! 😀

KTV the 我不知道’s style (Part IV)

Next Tuesday, May 24 we’re heading to KTV again for another legendary party! Everyone knows by now what KTV with the 我不知道’s means, and if you don’t, it’s about time you stopped by to find out just how much talent we can cram into one room!

We’ll meet next Tuesday (May 24) at 9pm at the Drum Tower (Gulou) as usual!

Don’t forget to bring funky sunglasses, a bottle of baijou and other crazy stuff! 😀

AND: Bring your friends, invite anyone you randomly meet on the way, and get ready for another LEGENDARY KTV night!

WHOOT WHOOT!

Here you can see how much fun we had last time: KTV the 我不知道’s style

A Chinese Sunday

“When in China – do as the Chinese!” And one thing every Chinese is doing: drinking tea!For the coffea-junks among us:

Tea is the agricultural product of the leaves, leaf buds, and internodes of various cultivars and sub-varieties of the Camellia sinensis plant, processed and cured using various methods. […] After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. It has a cooling, slightly bitter, astringent flavour which many enjoy. […]

The usage of tea as a beverage was first recorded in China, with the earliest records of tea consumption with records dating back to the 10th century BC.” [source]

To sum it up: 3000 years of Chinese tea culture and more than 1 billion active tea-drinkers each day can’t be wrong! It’s time to find out more about the history and all the different kinds of tea! And which place could be better for this than the Ningbo Tea Museum (http://nb-teaculture.com/) at the Moon Lake Park?

Meet us at the Ningbo Tea Museum this Sunday (May 22nd) at 4pm!

Another thing Chinese youngsters do and love: Party! 😉

Those of you who have been to a Chinese Club before know what that means: playing drinking-games, drinking, enjoying earpiercing loud music  and shaking it off on the “shaking dancefloor”. And you can be part of that! 😉

Meet us at TNT (this Sunday – May 22nd) at 9pm

For those of you who are looking forward to join the whole “A Chinese Sunday”-Session (Tea Museum + TNT): after the “Tea Session” we are going to have dinner at a Chinese Restaurant nearby (around 7pm) and then head to TNT (which is very close by)!

It’s gonna be LEDGENDARY!!! 😀

Nightly picnic at Moon Lake Park (NEW DATE!)

Meeting friends in the evening at Laowaitan is fun! But have you ever been to the Moon Lake Park at night? Can you imagine how beautiful and special it is?

If the answer to both questions is “no” then meet us at the KFC in Gulou this upcoming Saturday (May 21st) Wednesday (May 25th) at 9pm! If the answer is “yes”: write a comment! 😉

As we are going to have a picnic it would be great if you can bring some snacks – or at least a bunch of drinks! 😀

update: during this unique event we will also hold the first “Beatbox & Baijou Session”! So put on your hoody, bring a bottle of baijou and get ready for a unforgettable night in the park!

See you there, nightingale! 🙂

Ningbo Night Rider

This Friday, May 20th, will mark the first of Ningbo’s organized (monthly?) communal bike rides.  The organizers are looking for something that resembles Critical Mass without the fighting with traffic part. The event is free and everyone without a motorized vehicle is welcome, unless you customized yours.

Instead of writing a press release of sorts, the organizers have a list, mostly of rules. The rules are simple:

  • Gather
  • Ride
  • At Night
As this event is not hosted by me, and as I’ve already stolen all this poetically written material from the Ningbo Guide website, I will now provide you with the link to read the rest of the details and to see a map! 🙂 Because we must ride our bikes to Yinzhou, and then back to Laowaitan, let us know if you want to join us around 8:30pm in Jiangdong to ride to Yinzhou together!  Click here for the super special info!

May Day Trip!

The camping equipment will be 100yuan per person including the tent, a mattress, and a sleeping bag! Thank you Janet! 🙂

We’ll meet at the North Bus Station (near Laowaitan)  at 5:50AM for the bus to leave at 6:10AM! I’m not sure of the price, but it will be a little over 2 hours to arrive in Zhoushan.  We’ll then take the ferry to Putuoshan Island.

We may have a small crew of people hitting the bars Saturday night with our bags in hand to head straight to the bus station.  Feel free to join us! 😉

Because Putuoshan is a national park, there will be 160yuan fee just to go to the island.  Hopefully they won’t increase this for the holiday weekend!

I’ll buy all the alcohol tomorrow and everyone can give me money for both this and the camping equipment Sunday!

See you all very soon!
