A brand-spanking-new year! Well, that was fast. And not only is it a new year – it’s a new decade, which makes me feel a little more pressure to actually make some resolutions and stick to them. But let’s be serious, those resolutions will not involve food and booze, because there’s not much I’m ready to give up.
Speaking of, this month's cover story is the main reason behind my lack of self-control; Beijing is a damn good place to eat and drink. Last month, we threw a rowdy Wild West-themed bash with the glitterati of Beijing’s food and drink scene to celebrate the finest restaurants around town. Say “Ni hao-dy!” to all of our, and your, favorite picks right here.
