If you're staying in town for Golden Week with nothing to do, you might wanna go see a movie in the theater. There's probably one in some mall by your house. We have a list of them.
First up, there's Minions. The small yellow dudes from Despicable Me have their own movie. It's already made over a billion dollars worldwide, and you've probably seen ads and merch for it around town. The film has been in theaters since mid September.
We just came back from that Shanghai Wine & Dine Festival that's happening in the Expo Park all weekend. The whole affair seemed like a mystery so we checked it out for you and…you have better options this weekend. Here's what's up, with some pictures.
As you can see from our photo gallery, Shanghai's first ever tattoo expo is happening all weekend. It's good. There's over fifty renowned tattoo artists from across the world inking on site with their own unique styles. All kinds of characters were in the mix, too, from full body-tatted yakuza wannabes to families with their babies (didn't see many tattooed babies though).
This is the biggest week ever for soccer in this town. There’s not one, but two Shanghai derbies taking place between the city’s two major teams -- Shanghai Shenhua FC and SIPG FC -- this Wednesday and Sunday at Hongkou Stadium. It’s hard to explain just how huge this is -- it’s all over the local newspapers, and fans of each side are trash-talking each other every minute on social media right now.
Simply put, the Shanghai derby is a huge deal because there’s nowhere else in China that has two teams in the same city with the same intense rivalry. And this week, it’s even more mental than normal because of what happened last time.
