ShekouDaily | July 22, 2016
Finally! A weekend with no rain! It’s going to be nice to not have to worry about losing my umbrella. Unfortunately, this also means we don’t have the rain to lower the termperatures. Luckily, there are very interesting events this weekend (and beyond) specifically designed to help cool us down (or heat things up). Enjoy!
Swimsuit Party at London Bridge
Get a free shot of tequila and a chance to win a bottle of wine and other prizes when you wear a swimsuit to London Bridge this Friday from 9pm! Enjoy drink specials, live music, and a hot time at their Summer Swimsuit Party! London Bridge is located in Coastal Rose Garden 2 #54. For more info, call 159.8677.7719 (in case you’re wondering why my address is different from the one in the flyer, the addresses I use are the ones on the little blue placards on the wall in front of very place. The address in the flyer is the one that appears larger above their door).
InterNations Networking Event at Rockcandi Craft Beer Bar
ROCKCANDI, a newly opened craft beer bar in Shekou, 5 min food walk from Sea World metro station. If you haven’t been there yet, this InterNations networking event Friday July 22nd from 7-11pm is a good chance to do so and meet some interesting people.
