By Jim Boyce | Rooftop patio pizza party at Napa this Saturday, with a Margherita pie and two Jing-A brews for rmb100. I haven’t been to Napa yet but I have been to Napa Valley and the hilarious part is I actually had a nap there. A nap. In Napa. On our way to Lodi. Anyway, I’m not sure if customers are allowed to sleep on the Napa patio but should you do a double deal—two pizzas and four beers for rmb200—it’s worth a try.
Although World Baijiu Day 2016 is in the rear view mirror, there are still more than 10 billion bottles of this spirit produced annually and in need of drinking. Help that cause by attending a Beijing dinner and baijiu tasting at Culture Yard this Saturday as part of Beijing Orientation Month.
David Putney of baijiu bar Capital Spirits will be there to tell you all kinds of fascinating things about this spirit that you will likely instantly forget because you are blitzed. Don’t worry, it’ll be in your subconscious forever. Book your spot here.
