This Weekend in Shekou (August 5-7)
Typhoon NIDA brought us an exciting way to start the week. But if you think that was a big storm, wait til you see the next one! The PRD is about to get hit with a flurry of expats from all over the world. Before it does, however, we have one last weekend to enjoy the lull before the storm.
When and Where to Watch the Olympics
Although the Olympics started with some preliminary games yesterday, the Opening Ceremony isn't until Saturday morning. We've put together a handy list and guide to help pick the best spots the watch the games this month; including opening hours, deals and more. It'll likely be updated as the games progress so be sure to check back often. We've also converted game times into China time for reference in case you're wondering what time to watch. For the opening ceremony, it starts early so only Les 5 Chef's is officially open at that time; however, McCawley's Sea World told us they plan to be open early and will be serving breakfast for it as well.

All-You-Can-Eat-and-Drink Monthly BBQ with Live Music
In March of this year X-TA-SEA held their first BBQ in their outdoor area, called Da Patio, on the starboard side of the Minghua Cruise Ship. They had so much fun that they've put on many more since then. Some so crowded people could barely move around. The BBQs have been such a success that they've decided to make them a monthly occurrence. You can now count on enjoying their all-you-can-eat-and-drink BBQs (with live music) on DaPatio on the first Sunday of every month! In fact, the first one is this Sunday. Don't miss it from 5:30-9:30pm. For more info, call 2686.7649.
