The idea of gender equality is preposterous. Women are clearly superior. War, pollution and the Super Bowl are all disasters referred to as 'manmade.' Women, on the other hand, are the source of human life, score higher on IQ tests and live longer. Women, you rock, and that's why this Wednesday, March 8, is International Women's Day. If you're looking to celebrate in Shenzhen, check out the events below:
Fun fact: 50 percent of retail and brewing partners at Bionic Brew are women – we’re no mathematicians, but we’re pretty sure that’s about as equal a distribution as you can get! The bar-that-could is asking customers to call their mothers on March 8 before heading over to the Baishizhou or Shekou locations where ladies can enjoy a buy-one-get-one-free deal all day on select drafts.
This year, International Women’s Day's hashtag is #BeBoldForChange. Nothing says #bold like spending RMB600 at this colorful Italian seafood and grill, whereupon you will receive a complimentary bottle of Prosecco for your #boldness. We recommend a toast to women’s superiority – or, at least a gan bei to equality.
Ladies, why settle for Women's Day when you could enjoy Women's Week? At least, that's the question the Shangri-La is posing with its weeklong extravaganza of food and drink specials. Whether it's breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner or alcohol, the hotel has got you covered. See here for a full description of all specials.
What better way to demonstrate the injustice of economic disparity between genders than enjoying an unequally priced buffet? Take your mother, girlfriend, wife or daughter to enjoy the fresh seafood selection at the Kempiniski Hotel’s Seasons Restaurant (RMB258 for her, RMB358 for him; ladies drink free).
All women get 50% off both dinner and lunch buffets at the hotel on March 8. And of course, no celebratory meal would be complete without a cushy limo pickup (we think?). Luckily, if you're one of the first 100 diners to book a buffet at the Marco Polo, you can get RMB50 off a limo ride via the aptly named Lady Car.
Are social expectations stemming from culturally gendered norms giving you back pain? No worries! Put down the Advil and schedule an appointment at the St. Regis Shenzhen Spa for March 8 – ladies get 20 percent off on all spa treatments!
After a dinner recognizing the political achievements of women, head to The Terrace’s lively patio in Shekou for further discourse on the patriarchy. Along with a fun atmosphere and insightful conversation, ladies can enjoy free house mixed drinks until midnight.
