Hey kids big news right here. Perry's bar is expanding. Again. Just try to stop Perry's -- I dare you. Place spreads faster than a case of genital warts. The newest incarnation is set to open above Lark Hill on Xiangyang Lu, right by Project Wine. Just spoke with the work crew and they say this Perry's will open by the start of November.

And what can we expect from the new Perry's? Oh just the leaders of tomorrow crunk on cheap buckets of whiskey and coke, grinding it out to Spice Girls, The Macarena, and other selections from Now That's What I Call Music 1996. Deep cultural synergy. That, and cheap cheap food mixed with 10rmb Qingdaos.

Finally, a place for us common folk to drink in this neighborhood...

Bout time to start prepping for the annual three-week Halloween piss-up. One place to score some costumes is this place called Holiday House, which is like Taobao in real life. Expect higher prices than The 'Bao but they take cash and speak English. That's close to the Yishan Lu metro station on Line 3/9.

Then you've got Yu Garden, which actually contains nine dimensions of hell. Expect to spend a few hours wandering around there but you can find a lot of masks, wigs, makeup, props, and more. Prices negotiable.

The original Mokkos is one of Shanghai's best low-key places to have a drink. They've stayed hidden in an alley on Wuding Lu since 2006, slinging uplifting reggae tunes and shochu, that Japanese alcohol distilled from barely, sweet potatoes, rice, carrots, and other ingredients. Good service, good music, lots of charm. Only problem is it's often impossible to get a seat, as the original can only hold twenty people at best. It's the kind of bar that people don't like to recommend for fear of "blowing up the spot."

Mokkos just opened a new bar on Yanping Lu, not far from where The Fat Mama recently opened a beer garden and that Yunnan restaurant Slurp! set up shop. Judging by this area's ongoing gentrification and Mokkos' proximity to a certain expat ghetto called San He Hua Yuan, this is probably going to fare better than that time they briefly opened Mokkos Jiao. It's bigger than the original, with a long-bar that seats ten, nine tables, a tatami room, a standing area on the patio, and one table outside. Still, get fifty people in here and it's going to feel rammed.

If you have sworn off street food because of videos like these of people converting waste oil into cooking oil, there may still be some hope. In the future, there could be a new use for the stuff: biofuel.

Shanghai Daily reports that "Boeing and the Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC) yesterday opened a demonstration facility that will turn waste cooking oil into sustainable aviation biofuel."

So every promoter in town and a few festival organizers had their big event last Saturday. Tough choices were made. Heard from the streets that one of the better shows was Hemlock Records boss/all-around solid producer Untold dropping his brand of dark, punishing electro at a Wooozy Offline party at The Shelter

And what's this? Someone took the trouble to record his entire set for your home listening pleasure. Take a listen or download for free - it's real nice. You'll need a VPN to access that cloud.

This just in, pansexual bar 390 Panyu Lu has this art show on Thursday night that may contain adult subject matter. Think: erotic sketches of man love. But more importantly, they've got free wine and cheese from 8-10pm.

Also a live set by New Zealand singer Toni Huata, who looks like she walked straight up out the renaissance fair but makes dub electronica.

There you go. Do your worst.

Luc Besson's sci-fi thriller Lucy makes it's theatrical debut in China this Friday (October 24). Starring Scarlett Johansson and Amr Waked, it's based on the notion that we only use 10% of your brain and how much more we'd be capable of if we tapped into the remaining 90.

The title character, played by Johansson, accidentally overdoses on a drug that activates a myriad of pre-encoded genetic and consciousness capabilities, and she undergoes a Flowers for Algernon-esque metamorphosis from a ditzy party girl to an ass-kicking heroine.... Read on



Halloween is about to linger for the next month or two and we're slinging tickets for a few related activities on SmartTicket. First up, TICT's annual warehouse rave under The Bund. Nothing scarier than 1,000 hipsters in a dark room and loud house music. Pre-sale tickets going for 80rmb.

Then in November, Urban Aphrodite has a few short-run plays happening at The Pearl. On Nov 7/8 and 14/15 they're doing the classic 60s psychological horror joint Rosemary's Baby, followed by the bizarre and lovable Little Shop Of Horrors on Nov 20-23. Remember this number? Both those plays are 200rmb.

peek across food on Estado Puro on Oct 23rd
We walked by Estado Puro last week, and made a mental note to ourselves to try out the place, despite its touristy location and overall presentation. Now, tracking back a little here, we are big tapas fans, and love the food at Commune Social, Tomatito, El Willy, Table No.1 etc... We are big foodies, don't shy from a good bottle of wine, or multiple good cocktails, and while we don't go out as often, when we do, we aren't afraid to spend a fair bit. But Estado Puro is ridiculous. Firstly, you walk in, and no [..read on]
