A little something for our friends from down under to do. Tomorrow (Friday, April 25) is Anzac Day. Kakadu Aussie restaurant is celebrating with 160rmb all you can eat barbecue deal (80rmb if you're under 12). In addition to that, they've got deals on Steinlager for 20rmb, Aussie wines for 25rmb and Bundy for 40rmb. They'll also be playing two-up. I assume if you're Aussie or Kiwi you'll know what that means.

Just got word about a rap battle tonight via one of Shanghai's favorite promotion tools - The WeChat Holler. It's put on by Iron Mic, one of the oldest hip hop organizations in China.

Here's how tonight works - a bunch of rappers and crews take turns dropping rhymes and a panel of judges from the Iron Mic team, WangHao, and the DoublePoom Crew pick the winner, who automatically gets entered in the Shanghai final of the Iron Mic.

There's a couple big running events coming up, neither as serious as the North Korean marathon we posted an article about yesterday.

First up on May 3 the Shanghai Rat Run takes over Jing'an. Sounds like a combination of Mr. X's Mystery House and a Whopper Jr. Marathon.... Read on

Arguably, most after-work events don't focus on the music. You might get a good playlist occasionally, but most DJs don't turn up to rock the spot at 7pm. Some French people saw this market gap and decided to try something new called Super Attractive Ghetto Blaster down at La Cava.

You can plan a pretty picnic but you can't predict the weather. The folks organizing this weekend's MIDI Festival laid some big plans for 2014. They talked about free camping for 5,000 people all weekend, free entry into the festival after 10pm, and an electronic stage raging all night.

Welp, that's not happening anymore. Nope. According to the organizers, local authorities won't allow any nighttime activities at music festivals. Also, the camping tent supplier quit. Must have been tired from pitching all those tents.

But here's some good news - MIDI did get permission to extend the festival until midnight on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This means there's now about 259 DJs playing in 33 hours. Plus, you can see Beijing band SUBS, Xi'an nu-metal outfit Twisted Machine, and CONNNNNRRRAAAANKKKKK. It's still a music festival.

We've received word from Ceviche management this morning that operations have ceased as of today. Management was unavailable for comment as to why.

It could have been location. It could have been a rent hike. That's what caused partner Eduardo Vargas to shut down Chicha in Sinan Mansions to just around the corner and change the restaurant's name to Ceviche in the first place.

This leaves Azul and Azul Urban as the only remaining restaurants in Shanghai associated with Eduardo Vargas.

Just don't go This place has always been a bit iffy in terms of service and quality, but this was the last straw. I recently went with six colleagues for lunch, I was planning on getting the beef and lamb doner with rice, just about the only palatable thing on the menu, but cheap and right across from work, it seemed like an ok option. First off, if you're more than 4 people they make you climb to the 3rd floor. No attempt to accommodate you on the 1st floor and there is no second floor. We got up there and ordered, 4 of us got the beef and lamp turkish pizza, and I g [..read on]
