Turning 13 doesn’t always have to be awkward…
A year infamous for grow pains and awkward moments, the Hatsune Restaurant Group seems to be ahead of the curve as they turn 13 this year. Not only do they have 5 restaurants under their belt in Beijing and another 5 in Shanghai, their restaurant empire is continuing to grow with another Hatsune branch set to open in Beijing by early 2015 (location to be revealed in due time!) and expanding to other city options (equally as exciting!).
Entering their teenage years makes Hatsune a living dinosaur in the fickle and unpredictable Beijing restaurant scene where most places are lucky to make it past their 5 year mark. But Hatsune’s charismatic personality, lovely design and consistently delicious sushi rolls have won them over a growing number of sushi fanatics who just can’t seem to get enough.
And continuing in their tradition of hosting epic anniversary parties with free flow booze and sushi, it’s clear to see that Hatsune is really just a big kid at heart.

With a handful of Halloween parties that took place last weekend and more than a handful in the next 5 days ahead, it looks like this haunted holiday is really starting to take off in Beijing!
I still remember Halloween in 2006 was a big mishmash mess with Christmas lights and Easter eggs on display. We’re now seeing a lot more variety with various events happening all over town – a mix of costume contests, autumn-themed meals, haunted houses and magnificent masquerades in a ridiculously over-the-top castle! See below my top picks for events starting this Thursday, October 31st!

Moonlighting DJs Patrick Yu & Usami Will Make You Moonwalk
As the weather warms up to possibly +25 degrees (effing finally!!!), one of Beijing’s best rooftop parties, Moonlighting returns to the Moon Deck (if the weather keeps its promise to get warm) of Migas this Saturday, April 13 from 10PM-late. Appropriately, astronaut DJs will be decked out in their moonsuits and they would appreciate if music mavens come ready to moonwalk. (half joking) But seriously, bring your moonsuit!
Originally founded by two of Beijing’s very best DJs – Andrew Stevenson (aka DJ Usami) and Patrick Yu (aka ABC DJ Yu) over a year ago, Moonlighting sees these two DJs play back-to-back the entire night playing off the crowd and mixing the “chillest of downtempo to crazy, booty-shaking house, and everything in between”.
“Moonlighting is all about the music we love and want to play, and we’ll be keeping with our ethos of bringing you nothing but the best sounds and beats, creating the perfect, fulfilled soundtrack to your night.”

Mountains of Fun at Secret Garden Ski Park
The party animals at Bang Entertainment, P1.cn and Migas are teaming up to throw a Secret Garden Park opening event this coming weekend (January 25-27, 2013) at Genting Grand Hotel Secret Garden Resort.
“This is the first progression park built in China for all levels of riders. We have a full packed day and night line up with China’s top rider and the best talent performing in the Genting Grand sports bar. For this weekend only we have locked in a SUPER DEAL with the hotel to get you motivated to join the snow weekend party.” - Chozie Ma, Founder of Bang Entertainment Producers
What better excuse to escape Beijing’s smog then indulge in a winter weekend get-away of playing in powder white snow and free-flow drink parties?

Moonlighting on the Eve of the Apocalypse at Migas
Founded by two of Beijing’s very best DJs – Andrew Stevenson (aka DJ Usami) and Patrick Yu (aka ABC DJ Yu), they are hosting their next Moonlighting on the eve of the apocalypse - Friday, December 21 from 10PM to late at Migas, the top 6th floor of Nali Patio.
If the world hasn’t yet been demolished, I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate than with a Moonlighting dance party highlighting the best sounds of 2012.
“Moonlighting is back with our last event of the year before we take a winter hibernation. This year has definitely been a doozy, and we hope we get one more chance to kick it with all of you before the end of the year (and apparently, before the end of the world).” – DJ Usami, Co-founder of Moonlighting at Migas

Moonlighting on Friday, November 16 at Migas
Founded by two of Beijing’s very best DJs – Andrew Stevenson (aka DJ Usami) and Patrick Yu (aka ABC DJ Yu), they are hosting their next Moonlighting on Friday, November 16 from 10PM to late at Migas, the top 6th floor of Nali Patio.
“We spend the whole evening spinning back to back and we love the opportunity to build a night of great music. We’ll push our sounds from the chillest of down tempo, to the craziness of booty-bouncing house…and of course, everything from funk, to disco, to soul-filled beats, all sprinkled in between.” – DJ Usami, Co-founder of Moonlighting at Migas
Switching between the two DJs every couple tracks, you’ll want to be sure to have your dancing shoes ready to keep up with these two.
