That's Shanghai takes a look at some of the best upcoming F&B events:

We already like JUJU (see review here), so imagine our excitement to hear they are dropping the already fair prices on Mondays. That's why we plan to start the week right with a reduced-priced free-flow barbecue. Get six cuts of meat and refillable sides for RMB198 (regular price is RMB688). A deal this good means, you'd better make a reservation.
Dec 30: Twelve Starry Nights with Grey Goose
