Going to Attend Shanghaiist Party

I am going to attend the Shanghaiist.com’s Christmas Party on Saturday. Dan Washburn kindly sent the invitation, and people at Shanghaiist.com have been my friends for a long time.

Here is the party detail. I believe Shanghaiist.com and this blog shares a lot of readers (the expat community), and if you also consider to go, see you this Saturday night.

  • What: A Very Shanghai Christmas, a holiday party presented by Shanghaiist and Cotton’s
  • When: Saturday, December 20, 8 pm ’til late
  • Where: The new Cotton’s at 294 Xinhua Lu, near Dingxi Lu
  • Music: Early on, all your holiday favorites. Later on, DJ El Nomo (of Bananas fame) on the holiday wheels of steel.
  • Santa: He’ll be there! Get your photo taken on his lap! For free! (Professional portraits taken by Stephen Yang.)
  • Special Drinks: Holiday-inspired cocktails and beers from American Craft Beer Partners.
  • Movies: Watch some holiday classics!
  • Fireplaces: Two of them!
  • Outdoor Seating: In December? You bet. Assuming no rain, portable heaters will be brought out to the garden.
  • Entry: RMB 50, includes one beer from American Craft Beer Partners.


  1. Can anyone go there without an invitation?

  2. @Michelle, I think so, but you need to pay the 50 RMB entrance fee, as everybody else. You can check with them to confirm (I am not an organizer).

  3. @Jianshuo Thanks for your answer, and I’ll have a check.

  4. Anyone can come! No invitation necessary.

  5. Oh, that will be a very fun party! Please say hello to Dan Washburn for me if you see him, OK? He’s one of those “friends I haven’t met yet” :-)

  6. The whole world is crashing, and China will be in worse shape, and you guys are partying?

  7. Jim,

    let me guess… you’re NOT staying in Shanghai…


    arggh… I miss this happening again.

  8. I went to the party and left around 9:00 PM.

  9. I didn’t go to the party. I’m just too shy to go there alone. If only someone could go there with me.
