Shenzhen Weekly Round Up – Nov 21: Turkey, Soccer and Return of the Trump (Cue Star Wars Galactic Federation Soundtrack)

Now Shenzhen   |   November 21, 2022

Dear Shenzhen-er,

Anyone have a graphic handy - a Turkey kicking a soccer ball wearing a Trump wig - anyone? Perhaps being chased by a Covid tester 🙃. Please get it over to us via Wechat or by simply responding to this email. *end digression*

Covid numbers remain low - total of 20 cases as yesterday, 2 from community screening. Longhua, Nanshan, Futian, Bao'an, Pingshan, and Guangming districts all continue to make the cut. Guangzhou continues to steal the Covid Spotlight - adding over 9200 cases yesterday. Here's the latest long format publication on the situation published on Saturday

The World Cup and the Thanksgiving are the talk of the town this week. We've highlighted Salt & Talk's Thanksgiving dinner event as well as a publication from our friends over at EatShenzhen outlining all the choice spots to celebrate the holiday. Between his article and our events page you can count yourself amongst the most well-informed going into the feasting holiday. For a brief read on where you can catch all the Football games over the next month please take a moment to review Joseph's post covering the best venues for viewing.

For those of you not following the drama surrounding the hand over of Twitter to one Elon Musk, here's a peek into one of the latest headlines that finally made it into the local press: Trump's Twitter account reinstated following vote, 'could help his election.' Iconic hair aside - The COP 27 climate summit ended yesterday and G20 is now falling into the rearview as well. You'll have to Google your way to better publications on those topics.

In events we'd like to highlight the first ever Beer Crawl being put together by our mates at EatShenzhen. It aims to be unique and noteworthy event, worthy your time (in our humble opinion). Also, please take note that the Sexy PJ event will be changes to Westwood.

Gooble Gooble Gooble Goooooooooal Folks!

-David & The NowShenzhen Team

P.S. - Please let us know how we're doing! We're always eager to improve, and we'd like to do so based on your input! You can reply directly to this email or get in touch with me personally on wechat: david-d-ho. Thanks!
