If you're sick of your iTunes library and missing the old days of FM radio, you may wanna check out Tuesday night's live show on uDance Radio. It's hosted by the Come Correct Crew, who've run a weekly hip hop party at The Shelter every Wednesday for the last three years and have a new, slightly more mainstream party called Grown and Sexy this Thursday at Monkey Champagne.

On the radio show, they mix live old school and underground hip hop, have rappers come into the studio for a RAP ATTACK, and interview a bunch of characters a la Howard Stern. Really unpredictable. That's from 8–10pm every Tuesday night. Stream that here. Turn your VPN off for that. Or you could just walk down to the station and have a beer and watch it live. Happens at URVC in Jing'an, the place we just wrote a radar about last Friday. For an archive of all the shows, check out their Mixcloud.

Lots of people have been going out, doing stuff, drinking, smoking, dancing, posing, duckfacing. And we document it in pictures. For instance, we've got some gritty, grainy high-ISO noise at Same As It Ever Was. Check out these finned-up gutter punks at YYT. Or take a look at what we've got from the !!! last week.

Click on that shit. Come on. You know you want to.

Here is something for the artistically/alcoholically inclined: Basement6 is hosting another one of its regular Drink and Draw sessions. It's BYOB, and BYO art supplies, but it's a good opportunity to meet some like minded folks and have a drink while making art. Starts at 8pm.

Last fall you might remember that we posted a Radar about Jade Garden. I also named it as one of the best openings of 2013.

They opened a second branch in Grand Gateway just last week and gave the brand a slight tweak by adding the parent company (Mei-Xin, aka Maxim's) to the name. This was basically to avoid any confusion with other similarly named restaurants.

This new juice shop called "Fly Juice" (unassociated with the Fly skateboard shop a few doors down) recently opened on Changle Lu. It's shiny and hip and "branded," but can all that branding justify costing 25–40% more than the curiously named "Fruit's Party" juice shop around the corner on Huaihai Lu?

First up, the small store looks like a streetwear boutique, with neon lights, a surf board, and bottles of juice that look like a mad scientist's potion. One of the young Shanghainese guys who owns the place designed it himself. Nice guy. And it's clean. The juices have cute names like "The Hulk" (celery, apple, wheat grass, chia seed – 22rmb) and "Fly Power" (avocado, banana, and milk – 38rmb). ... Read on

...And it looks like now we've got another temporary closure: Italian steakhouse Capo. They tell us that they need to shut down operations "for essential maintenance to [their] exhaust systems." They didn't specify when Capo would re-open, but we're pretty sure it should be up and running after a few days.

Word just comes to us from Stubb's BBQ that they're shutting their doors for a few months in search of a new location. So if you're into the whole Texas barbecue thing, you'll have to wait until at least November.

They've also found new investors and are in the process of severing ties with its original holding company Amrest. With this new injection of capital, there are plans to expand the brand and also to bring the Stubb's line of barbecue sauces to retail shops around town.

Apparently people still go to Gintei. How 'bout that. AnaK gives us a gushing accolade of Pistolera. Mr Harry elicits a resounding Meh. Dakota once again underwhelms. And Buckwurst has a communication breakdown at Liquid Laundry.

And this week's winner, sheer volume alone, is Wsrshanghai for reviews of Nougatine, Fifty 8º Grill, Roosevelt Sky, and Danieli's. For your efforts, a Sherpa's voucher for 500rmb in free delivery.

louise89 on Mr Harry on Aug 30th
Mr Harry's is one of the only places in town that serves brunch from Monday to Friday so off we went for my friend's birthday brunch (there were 6 of us). Decor was OK, sort of museum teashop meets bachelor pad bar. (Perhaps 15 years in the UK made me immune to its chintzy charms). We were half-greeted by a disgruntled-looking waiter who emanated vibes of unpleasantness throughout the whole experience. I have a severe peanut allergy and I'm always clear and polite when I let restaurant waiting s [..read on]
