You’ve been spoiled, Shanghai.
Every weekend there are even too many great food feasts, sports fests and art fusses to frequent.
But there’s more — oh, there’s always more.
Sport: The Shanghai Derby
Shenhua play SIPG.
There will be passion, there’ll be mixed qualities of football depending on whether Carlos Tevez or A. N. Other local player is on the ball, but a feverish level of excitement.
Hongkou Stadium, May 20, 7:35pm. Go early to soak up the atmos.
Food: Annual Shuck-Off at Plump Oyster
Shuck yourself silly, or at least see others shuck all night long.
At The Plump Oyster, 169 Jianguo Zhong Rd, May 19-21, prices ¥488 upwards depending on the oysters you eat.
Beer: Belgian Beer Fest
That pretty much says it. Beer. Yes please.
Art: James Turrell
This Californian artist has an installation at the Long Museum, 3398 Longteng Dadao, until May 22.
It’s relaxing, it’s good for photos and taking someone that you fancy there may just be the final, beard-stroking straw that gets you laid.
Comedy: Russell Howard
He gets mixed responses, but some people love him. We honestly just think he’s OK, some of the jokes are a little contrived but his fanbase is big.
