Best Friends China (BFC) hosts another adoption day on Yongfu Lu this Sunday from 12-4pm. All pets come vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and dewormed. They're healthy and ready for you to show some love, IF you have the time and resources to take care of them.

This event spotlights pets from two all-star rescuers. Meihui has been rescuing dogs for 10 years, and is now single handedly running a rescue shelter. She has saved and found homes for over 200 dogs, but the work continues. Wu Ayi picked up a cat one day for rat control, then turned her house into a rescue operation for more than 2000 cats to date.

Last time BFC did this at The Apartment, they found homes for all of the animals. Read on for pictures of some of the pets waiting to be adopted on Sunday... ... Read on

Taco Love, a newish Mexican restaurant on the seventh floor of Nanjing Dong Lu's Mosaic Mall, does tacos al pastor, de lengua and carne asada -- just as you'd have at a real taqueria, they say. No lettuce. No sour cream. None of that Tex-Mex mess.

Well, Taco Love's tacos are what you'd expect nice-looking tacos to look like. Then you put one in your mouth. Suddenly, despair.

Where's the flavor you promised, Taco Love? All these colors, all these layers... A mirage. Now I know what it might be like to eat those plastic food replicas that Japanese restaurants like to display at their entrances.

That all sounds harsh, but here's ... Read on

This new Spanish restaurant / cocktail house opened on Wulumuqi Lu near Fuxing Lu about twenty days ago. Their event listing promised "the most creative cocktails in Shanghai" so we stopped in to verify this claim. Not sure about the "most creative" part, but the drinks are solid, service is great, and this renovated lanehouse with indoor and outdoor seating would make a perfect spot for a date -- just not a dinner date.

Jardin de Riz looks like it was designed by a Shanghainese art school graduate. It was, and they harmoniously balanced the Shanghai x Euro vibes and the feng shui. ... Read on

Here's some things you can do to enjoy the air, fight your winter pale, and do something good for your body. Basically, weekend events that don't involve getting crunk.

Sprout Lifestyle's new shop on Shaanxi Nan Lu has this Ayurveda class on Saturday at 3pm. They claim the traditional Hindu medicine promotes mental and physical wellness, which might offset the rest of your weekend plans. Sounds like a healthy way to get in touch with the immortal gods and goddess within.

Just for ladies, boxing gym Golden Gloves has a beginner's class on Saturday for women who want to hit something. It's a non-contact class so you don't have to stress about ruining your beautiful face.

Shanghai, just killing it. Unstoppable. World class. Here are some new party pictures galleries to ease you through Friday afternoon.

Record Store Day and Basement6's re-opening both happened on Xingfu Lu so we combined those galleries into one. Really nice shot of our man Sacco sweeping the streets in there.

And apparently there's some country music fans in Shanghai. They done had themselves a bit of a hootenanny at The Pearl.

Keeping those nails manicured at Bar Rouge's weekly Thursday ladies night...

And EDM all up in your grill at Fusion.

EVERYONE WINS. ... Read on

Sun is shining. No rain until at least next Saturday, so says Weather Underground. Here's what's good.

Thursday night, the IAPM rooftop could be a good look at The Cut with Super Attractive Ghetto Blaster. Over in Jing'an, La Stazion has a new ladies night with Smokey on guitar. Later in the evening, Shelter has a round-up of some of the beat beatmakers in south China with this Lost Cargo x Groove Bunny Records showcase. This one features Damacha, who just dropped a perfume-themed EP, Endy Chen playing a vinyl set, and PETECHEN performing live, plus Pantoo and Aivilox. Well worth the 20rmb cover. New play Five Women Wearing The Same Dress also premieres tonight.

napkinplease on The Commune Social on Apr 23rd
I am on a restaurant-hunt that is gonna blow me away. I did my research and found that The Commune Social has some interesting reviews. Mostly about its service but overall everyone sounded happy, and this is how i started my commune social journey... THE LOCATION Normally this doesn't bother me much but this place felt a little bit far out. I felt like someone lost in a dessert looking for water. Considering the prices and portions, i wish their location was more central ( i am coming to that later ) THE FOOD This is where things g [..read on]
