Enjoy a day of food, drink and music as maovember wraps up a month of fundraising.

The fun starts from 3 PM at George’s Bar in Workers Stadium as The Beijing Beatles return for a second year of maovember fun. There is also plenty of food and drink, including:

  • 18-inch pizzas from Kro’s Nest (75 kuai per pie). We will have five each of Pepperoni Explosion, Sausage Fest, Honolulu Hurricane and Veg-Head. Each is enough for three people. First come, first served.
  • Wine from La Cava (25 kuai per glass). La Cava owner Mariano Larrain will be on hand to pour a selection of the wines from his nearby shop.
  • Beer from Heineken and Tiger (25 kuai per bottle). If wine isn’t your thing, grab a cold beer while enjoying the Beijing Beatles. Thank to Kenny Lew for the brew.

The party continues at Fubar from 6 PM with a Two Guys pie-eating contest headed by heavyweights Benny Bongo and Zona — see Maodown at Fubar — and tunes by DJ BB Deng. Enjoy tasty beverages, too, including:

  • Maovember Beer (25 yuan): Vedett has made four cases of specially labeled bottles for us and these will be exclusive to Fubar. Enjoy a beer and get a souvenir.
  • Grace Vineyard People’s Series Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon (25 yuan) from Torres China. Enjoy wine from what is widely deemed the best Chinese operation of the past decade.
  • Fu Shots (20 yuan). Fubar will be creating a special shot for maovember.

All proceeds from the beer, wine, shots, and pie-eating contest — 100 yuan per person — go to maovember.

We hope to see lots of you today as we wrap up our campaign.
