For those of us that never got round to booking that Chinese New Year vacation, Nali Patio favorite Niajo is offering us a chance to escape Beijing on a tour of Spain, even if it's just for the length of a glass of wine. For their Spanish Food and Wine Tour promotion, they have selected signature wines from the regions of Valencia, Madrid, San Sebastian and Catalonia and paired them with a tapas dish from that area, each of which will be available for a week at a time. See the event listing for full details. At RMB 89 per pairing, it's quite a saving on buying the dishes individually.

Gongti Thai restaurant Purple Haze is turning 10 this year and they are celebrating with a host of promotions from January 31 to February 10 to say thanks to their loyal customers. Look out for all day happy hour, 20 percent discount, free desserts, anniversary set menus and changing daily special deals.

More events and promotions this week:

  • February is festive month at the Sofitel's VIC restaurant and they are offering their usual weekday lunch buffet for RMB 228 instead of RMB 368
  • Get wined up at Cu Ju on Tuesdays when you get a free appetizer with every bottle of their Portuguese house wine or 1421 wine from Xinjiang
  • Warm your cockles with a hefty serving of Bavarian pork knuckle, served with two Tsingtao beers, available at The Opposite House's Village Cafe on Saturday nights
