One of the best international headlining acts that have been invited to Beijing to perform at The Bookworm‘s Humor Section Comedy Shows, Tom Rhodes is back for one night only this Sunday, May 10th at 8PM!
Praised by The Humor Section’s original founder and host Des Bishop (who has now moved on from his successful stint in Beijing), Des has known Tom for the past 15 years and swore that “Tom never fails to impress and always absolutely kills on stage”.

Are you ready for Cinco de Mayo?
A great excuse to get smashed on tequila on a Tuesday night, Cinco de Mayo sees celebrations all around town.
Whether you want to stay classy with a Margarita in hand while playing some Bingo (that’s pretty classy for Cinco de Drinko), dance salsa with a live music band, or just find the cheapest booze deal there is, it’s all about personal preference. I’m just here to help point you in the right direction.
LDS Top Picks for Cinco de Drinko 2015:

A remarkable boutique hotel designed to make you fall in love with Beijing
Mad respect to the little boutique hotel that could, and did!
A co-creation by a Tibetan and a Canadian, Youngcall and Joel have successfully built and operated The Orchid hotel for the past four year, “their dream living space in the heart of Beijing, who’s purpose was to show the world what the city is really all about”.

京A Taproom’s Brewer’s Brunch Soft Launch this Weekend!
Starting this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, May 2 and 3 from 11AM-2PM, 京A Taproom will be soft launching a new 3-course Brewer’s Brunch Set.
Brunchers will be greeted with a gorgeous Antipasto Board (see pic below), the choice of a main (out of 9 brand-spankin’ new creations) and an ice cream sandwich dessert made with Vivi Dolce’s Chocolate Raspberry & Vanilla Stout or Flying Fist IPA Lemongrass Sorbet.
Featuring staple brunch classics like Eggs Benedict and Traitor Zhou’s Bagels with filled with Lox, I’m most excited about their Hungry (wo)Man’s Hash with house-cured corned beef, potatoes and a poached egg…and that ice cream sandwich dessert!

tl;dr Solid French fare. Simple mains and well put together desserts.
Not to be confused with Taverna in 1949-The Hidden City in South Sanlitun, La Taverne is situated on Gongti Xi Lu opposite garish neon lights of the assorted nightclubs with Chinese characteristics. It is a French restaurant in the same sort of vein as Cafe de la Poste. Similar food options and price point, albeit with a slightly more subdued atmosphere.

Hot Tip: Hatsune’s Secret Dish of the Month REVEALED!
Continuing to create new off-menu dishes to keep their sushi addicts on their toes, the Hatsune Restaurant Group has been discreetly sharing new dishes with their regulars, keeping it all very low-profile and only known by word of mouth.
“Inspired by travel, new kitchen gadgets or seasonal ingredients, each secret off-menu dish is available for only a set period of time (generally a couple of weeks) and a limited supply available each day.” - The Hatsune Team
They’ve already shared a Crab Hot Pot and Okinawa Ramen to warm up guests during Beijing’s colder months, but this April’s secret menu dish is so fresh and vibrant, it puts Spring’s flower buds to shame. But even more short-lived than the cherry blossoms that grace our presence this time of year, this dish will only be available until the end of April – that’s right people, you have a week left!
