Snapshots from JUE’s Creative Market
Yesterday saw one of the most popular JUE 觉 Festival events thus far – their Creative Market featuring over 80 food and creative booths! This family-friendly event drew in massive crowds to LANNG Art Center (just southeast of Guomao) and was a weekend highlight for many.
Running between The Bookworm’s Literary Festival events and other happenings around town, I was only able to swing by for an hour in the later part of the afternoon to check out the many creative stall, snap a few photos and grab one of the very last Nori Bagels by Migas + Traitor Zhou‘s (something I’ve been keeping my eye out for all week – see pics below).
In addition to all the creative and boutique vendors selling unique gifts and crafts, they also hosted workshops that introduce participants to: Contact Improv, Salsa dancing, Poi, NIa, along with musical performances, square dancing and body-painting. From what I saw, square dancing with the Yellow Weasels was a big hit and of course all that great food – Cuju, Rager Pie, Big Bear Baked Goods, etc. I’m actually relieved most of the food was sold out by the time I arrived as I definitely would have gone to town at each and every stall if I had the stomach space.

That’s right ladies, for every woman who dines in one of their 3 branches (Guanghua Lu, Kerry Center or Sanlitun Taikoo Li), she is entitled to order any roll she desires for the set price of RMB 38 – that’s more than 50% off some of their best selling rolls! Note that the only exception is their Heirsun Roll – the blinged out insanely luxurious roll priced at RMB 9,999).
So, in short, start rallying up your girlfriends – the more women you dine with, the more you will be rewarded with excellent sushi variety!
