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.

Hey if you were thinking about heading to that pool party this afternoon, don't. Not happening, due to concerns about rain. If you're looking for something to do today, the Boosh Brunch market/live music jamboree is going on until 8pm, and that uDance Radio Vinyl Club event with free vodka and twelve DJs is on from 3pm–3am. Both of those are free indoor events.



This sounds good. Pocho Social Club over on Jianguo Lu, known for dangerously strong drinks, solid Latin playlists, and bartenders who remember your name turns one year old tonight. To celebrate, they've got "18 litters of tequila punch FREE, 15kg BBQ imported beef cooked by our Cuban brother Yoiry for tacos FREE, guacamole with homemade chips for FREE." All that plus 10rmb Dos Equis bottles and 10rmb Sol beer bottles, all night. Goes from 7pm–sunrise. Address here.

Let's keep this short. Friday night sees a face off between two rock shows put on by the same damn promoter - HIM at QSW and Liars at Mao Livehouse. For hip hop, The Shanghai All-Stars return to The Shelter with guests Zean and Kin. And of course, that nightlife photo exhibition at Basement6 that we wrote about right here. And hey, Arkham sees the return of talented young techno and dubstep producer Steven Lorenz. Think there's some tech house DJ headlining, too.

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 staff know this (in Chinese) because hey... my life is in their hands. He dismissively told me that 'nah peanut [..read on]
