Friday the 13th Weekend
If you spend any amount of time in China, you'll quickly see that the number four is their unlucky number. The counterpart for many of us is the number 13. Don't ask me why, it just is. Anyway, in case you haven't noticed yet, today is Friday the 13th! According to the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, North Carolina, an estimated 17 to 21 million people in the United States are affected by a fear of this day, making it the most feared day and date in history. Millions refuse to even leave their house on this day. Across the pond, a study in the British Medical Journal, published in 1993, concluded that there "is a significant level of traffic-related incidences on Friday the 13th as opposed to a random day, such as Friday the 6th, in the UK." Whether there's any truth to that or not, I prefer to believe that we are the masters of our own destiny. Superstition, ha. Unlucky, you say? Ha. I say, let's get lucky! For those of you brave enough to venture out and about today and this weekend, here's plenty of stuff to help you get lucky. Enjoy!
Free Glass of Wine for Ladies in Chinese Dress at London Bridge

Friday the 13th at X-TA-SEA
I don't know about you but I kind of miss screaming at stupid people on a big screen while watching horror movies.

Re-live the good ole days by watching clips from the old Friday the 13th movies on the big LED screen at X-TA-SEA while Alien Encounter rocks out their own soundtrack.
