Recap | Paddy O’Shea’s Hosts Official Maovember Closing Party


Maovember officially closed its 2017 campaign on November 30 with a rowdy party at Paddy O’Shea’s. The night kicked off with a group of supporters joining Mike Wester for the last of the 900 kilometers he walked during his mao-a-thon in November.

Party-goers then enjoyed CHEERS mulled wine, Orchard Pig cider and Jameson picklebacks, hockey and dart games, the weigh-in for the CHEERS Wine Your Weight in Wine Contest, and live bands all night.

Representatives of this year’s partners, Bread of Life and The Library Project, were on hand to accept rmb25,000 each as an initial donation. The rest will be given once the final accounting is done this month.

All in all, a wild and fun finish to this year’s campaign, one that raised 33,490 mao (3,349 rmb) through wine, cider and pickleback sales, games and donations!

Recap | ‘Paws for a cause’ with Dog Pub Crawl!


The first Maovember Dog Pub Crawl saw dozens of our four-legged friends, of almost every shape and size, tour the Sanlitun area. Everyone gathered at the first stop Beer Mania, then visited The Local, XL Bar & Restaurant and Paddy O’Shea’s before winding up at Jing-A. At each venue, the people got a beverage while the pooches got snacks courtesy of Penny’s Food Studio. With 31 attendees, these “paws for a cause” raised 31,000 mao (rmb3,100) for Maovember!
