Beijing Beatlemania arrived at George’s Bar on Sunday as maovember celebrated its closing weekend. The fab four entertained the crowd with three sets of infectious songs during an afternoon gig that saw some of the younger attendees join Beatles lead singer Ian Burns on stage for Yellow Submarine.
Attendees enjoyed white, rose and red wines from Mariano Larrain of nearby shop La Cava as well as Heineken and Tiger beer donated by Kenny Lew. They also mowed, er, maoed down on 18-inch pizzas donated by Kro’s Nest. All proceeds from wine and beer (25 yuan per serving) and pizzas (75 yuan per pie) went to maovember and the party ultimately raised 3,040 yuan.
