Dozens of Maovember supporters braved the winter cold on Friday for a terrace party at Hulu restaurant in Sanlitun South. With temperatures dipping below zero, the mulled wine, made on the spot in a fiery display, was a popular choice.
Guests enjoyed a steady flow of snacks, including sliders, risotto and pate, plus Maovember macaroons donated by The 3D Food Company. They could also participate in a draw to win Tim Adams Semillon and Oakridge Cabernet sponsored by The Wine Republic and four kinds of Orchard Pig cider sponsored by The Cider Guy.
Overall, the event raised 元3,650 from attendance fees, 元700 from the draw and 元9,217 from food donations, for a total of 元13,567. Thanks to Ignace Lecleir and the Hulu team for this year’s most “chill” party!
