Stop taking this man's daughter!
We're starting with my most recent Neeson. Some Harry Potter business called "A Monster Calls", wherein Neeson plays the most metal Ent ever. That's him there above. Saw this literally yesterday. I have no idea what this movie was about but Neeson is the voice of this thing which looks like it could disrespect the hell out of a Groot.
Here are some events...
The Boxing Cat Brewery team, in collaboration with Teeling Whiskey, is planning a party bus for St. Pat's. Starting at 6.30pm they’re departing from Boxing Cat Brewery Yongfu for The Camel, Big Bamboo, Cages, and ending with an after-party at BCB Sinan Mansions. Each ticket gets you free flow of BCB Lucky Leprechaun Lager on the bus. Sounds proper sloppy. Tickets are 250rmb.
Following on from the success of Santa-Con and Halloween party last year, Jameson Irish Whiskey and the Shaanxi Bei Lu Crew are once again teaming up to celebrate all things Irish at the St. Patrick’s Day Block Party. Five venues in all Voltroning it.
The Apartment and Murphy's are doing a "very green Friday night". They ask that you wear your best Leprechaun gear to the party. Live music by Apartment's Smokey and Prince Oli is followed by DJs OJ and Rhenz.
Hey, remember back in like 1983 when Lian Neeson was in "Nell"? I do. There's only one man that can use heart strings to garrote you to death: It's Neeson.
Some more events...
Once again Jameson Irish Whiskey is teaming up with Yeti Out to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Shanghai’s local community. Rooftop party overlooking Shanghai’s skyline with DJ sets from the city’s crews playing to a Saturday daytime party.
Even C's is going green with the guys behind "Get Your Brit On" hopping across the Irish Sea to celebrate with a dose of Irish music. Thin Lizzy, Stiff Little Fingers, The Pogues, and more. "Expect free hats and that." Expect "Alternative Ulster"!
In the movie "Battleship" Liam Neeson plays 'Admiral Shane' in a movie based on a board game that also stars Rhianna and they still gave him 10 Oscars for it.
A few more...
Lucca fantastic gay club goes green on the dancefloor with their St. Pat's party. Expect the hotness with an Irish-ish tinge.
The Mexican restaurant and club goes Irish with their yearly St. Pat's party. Free shots before 11pm for people wearing green. Guinness is 55mrb per glass. Jamesons shots at 40rmb all night. Should be a real staid affair.
If you were thinking I'm going to forget about the movie "The Grey" in which Liam Neeson fights a pack of superwolves with a bunch of broken travelers bottles tapped to his bloody fist you thought wrong. DEAD wrong.
Both venues of Shanghai Brewery is celebrating St. Paddy’s Day with green beer, good cheer and something everyone’s wallet likes: cheap deals on booze and food.
Enjoy ALL DAY Dugite Stout happy hour prices and dance with Irish songs out in the hinterlands.
It's Liam. As Jesus. As a lion. You're damned right. Narnia: Chronicles of Ownage. There's like seven novels in that series but our man did the job in just three excellent and tidy movies. Leading armies of centaurs dispensing advice about Turkish Delight and shit.
Lot's o' stuff happening!
Three days. Three deals (four if you count the recovery session). One interminably extended bender at Shanghai's home for the Irish. Thumbs up.
St. Paddy's day is on all weekend at The Caxton. On Friday they'll have live band, on Saturday you can stay up till the wee hours with back-to-back Six Nations games. It's Guinness on Tap for 50rmb, Jameson shots for 35rmb, and more.
Not even a real movie. Doesn't have to be. This was the item in this morning's Neeson News, which I check daily. This is what Neeson gets up to with his time off. Casually doing friggin' yoga in friggin' India with friggin' Voldemort because he just doesn't know any other way to do it.
What a useful website, having all this information.
The weekly Pub Crawl goes green for their annual St. Pat's blowout. They're bar hopping to four different Paddy parties with shots and more along the way -- three bars, 1 club.

"Love Actually" is 'actually' metal as fuck.
Aaaaaaan that should do it.
Celebrate Paddy's Day with the Irish at The Tipsy Fiddler, an ideal place in Shanghai to enjoy the craic. Live traditional Irish music from 7pm till the wee hours and no door charge. Expect a packed pub.

Ending with the classic. It's apropos. Rob Roy. The original Braveheart. Rob Roy slam dunks on a Braveheart. Have a good one Friday, Shanghai. Remember: St. Pat's day is all about keeping the GD British out of your face, swinging mad balls to the wind, and having sweet Madam Tussaud's-level quality hair while doing it.
