“An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.” Ernest Hemingway
Beijing already has a handful of successful trivia nights sprinkled around town, but The Hutong‘s new “Think ‘n’ Drink” is a cross-breed of a cocktail making class and trivia night.
Premiering this new spin on game nights this coming Tuesday, July 15th, you can sign up individually for RMB 150 or per team of 5 for RMB 600.
“Blending elements of the classic pub trivia format with the elegance and sophistication of a cocktail party, the The Hutong’s “Think ‘n’ Drink” puts a new spin on game night. Sit back, relax, and enjoy five blazing rounds of fun-filled trivia while learning a thing or two about your favorite drinks along the way.” – Ben Kalman, The Hutong’s Corporate Programs Manager

What’s that sound you hear? It’s the sound of silence, as the Global Float Dance party arrives in Beijing this Saturday.
For those of you who’ve never heard of a float, it’s a roaming, silent disco in which participants stream (or previously download) music to their portable device. Did I mention it was silent? That’s right, with everyone listening to the music on their headphones, the float will pass quietly through the Houhai and Gulou area without causing too much of a disturbance, though I expect it will be met by more than a few stares from local residents.

Inspired by the ingredients used in the Flying Fist IPA beer, Stephanie’s cocktails are a combination of cocktail classics mixed with their IPA and some refreshing citrus ingredients perfect for these hot summer months.
