If you do one thing this coming weekend, make it Dive In by M5, a pop-up pool party on Sunday, July 12 organized by big hitters Migas and Mosto Group. Yes, it's a party, which is a bit of a departure for this column, but with names like these involved, you know that food is going to be a big part of the experience. For RMB 530, you will be picked up from 3.3 Mall at lunch time and taken to a secret poolside location, at which point you will be plied with barbecue and snacks from Chefs Aitor Olabegoya and Daniel Urdaneta and lubricated with drinks from Migas' cocktail-guru Ciccio, which should put you in the perfect mood for dancing to tunes by DJs Nassdak and Alex Molina. Get your tickets from MOKA Bros' before they're gone.
Speaking of the number five, Beijing's "brightest pizza bearers and hardest-trying hangover curers" (their words, not ours) Gung Ho! Pizza are celebrating five years in the business with a whole month of offers from July 8 to August 8. Deals include buy-one-get-one pizza instore, extended happy hour with two-for-one drinks from 7-10pm instore (both deals available at their Gongti and Lido dine-in locations), and 20 percent off online orders. Keep up with their Facebook page for more details.
We were tipped off by Beijing Boyce's blog last week that the guys behind FatFace Dining are part of a team launching The Smokeyard, an American-style restaurant on Nan Sanlitun Lu (in the former F by Tribute space) that will serve steaks and sliders, accompanied by beers from Lark Brewpub. Apparently there will also be a branch in Wudaokou.
More dining events and promotions this week:
- Grand Hyatt's Grand Cafe hosts Anil Khurana from Hyatt Regency Delhi for a week-long celebration of all that makes Indian cuisine great. Until July 15.
- Don't miss the chance to study the joys of Japanese liquor at Hatsune's Sake Sensei dinner hosted by sake expert and owner of Hatsune, Alan Wong. Wednesday, July 8, 7.30pm.
