In October 2005, I started a biweekly e-newsletter about the Beijing nightlife scene that covered everything from bar news and reviews to the eating and drinking adventures of my friends. In October 2006, I uploaded 70,000 words worth of newsletters and launched this blog.

I write from a consumer perspective. I have not owned or managed a bar nor do I claim to be an expert on wine, cocktails or any other beverages or foods. My goal is simply to pass bar and restaurant info to fellow consumers.

Cheers, Jim Boyce
