**Did you have trouble getting out of bed this morning? We feel you. The weekend went by so fast and now the Monday morning blues have arrived. You don’t have to wait for next weekend to start having fun. Here are few things happening this week to keep your sanity in check.**
[IllustraBrazil @ The Foundry](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/events/91533/)
Experience a side of Brazil beyond just the Havaiana flip flops and Caipirinha cocktails. This free event, sponsored by the Consulate-General of Brazil, showcases the best of Brazilian artwork and animation and also includes bilingual lectures and workshops. Ongoing until the 25th of September. 9am-5pm.
[BEAN Networking Night @ The Tap Room ](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/events/89209/)
Mix and mingle with a crowd of altruistic young professionals. The people behind Kaiba have opened a new bar called The Tap Room and are celebrating with beer, wine and mixed drinks on special all night. 7:30pm. Website: [shanghai.beanonline.org](http://shanghai.beanonline.org)
[Quiz Night @ The Camel](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/events/87829/)
Join Ned Kelly for his famous pub quiz and enjoy two-for-one food and drink specials all night. Top prize is RMB500 in drink vouchers plus a bottle of liquor. Finally a purpose for all that useless knowledge you've been storing up! 8pm.
[Oyster Tuesdays @ Kakadu](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/events/91725/)
Oysters are normally best in the winter, but those crazy Aussies from Kakadu import everything from Down Under, so their shellfish stock is just hitting its stride. This is likely the cheapest oyster deal in town; get 12 fresh oysters plus a glass of NZ Sauvignon Blanc for just RMB150. 6pm. Tel: 5468-0118
[Rockers @ Dada](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/events/91725/)
This week Dada is showing Rockers, a 1978 Jamaican movie featuring a star-studded cast of famous reggaers like Leroy “Horsemouth” Wallace, Burning Spear, Gregory Isaac, Big Youth, Dillinger and Jacob Miller. The film showcases the history and growth of reggae music. 9pm.
[Burgers and Beer @ Table No.1 by Jason Atherton ](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/events/88740/)
Officially, this deal takes place in the Waterhouse's Lobby Bar, but the burgers come straight out of Table No. 1's kitchen, meaning this is one of the cheapest ways to enjoy succulent fare from Atherton's Shanghai outpost. The airy, glass-walled space is an especially great spot during spring and summer to enjoy a burger and a brew. RMB88. Tel: 6080-2988
[Early Bird Special @ Nougatine](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/events/88183/)
Assuming you can get out of work early, this is one of the best deals on the Bund. Nougatine's food all comes from the Jean Georges kitchen; the only difference is that the venue is set back from the windows. Treat yourself to the rotating three-course menu for RMB218 or opt for one of the mouth-watering pizzas starting from RMB58 (all plus 10 percent surcharge). 6-7pm. Tel: 6321-7733
[Private Venetian Dinner @ Il Nascondiglio](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/events/85048/)
Il Nascondiglio is a private dining room set in the old Shanghainese lane house where Chiang Kai-shek proposed to Soong Meiling. The restaurant serves up authentic Venetian fare, courtesy of host Fabrizio, to a select number of diners each night. This week they've put together a five-course menu for RMB250 or RMB350 including wines. RSVP required. 7:30pm. Tel: 131-2231-6425
[Groove feat. Sean Colin @ Shiva Lounge](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/events/92784/)
Get your weekend started early at Shiva with house beats provided by Sean Colin Wright and complimentary fresh fruit cocktails for girls before 12:30. And if you're looking for some variety in your free flow booze, you could always head next door for The Apartment's weekly [Gossip](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/events/90118/) event.
[Drunken Dragon Pub Crawl @ O'Malley's](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/events/89680/)
If you're ready to get serious about your Thursday night, meet Shanghai's original pub crawl crew at O'Malley's and have yourself a night to remember (or not). RMB150 gets you transportation to four venues around town, free welcome shots at each bar, and a guaranteed good time. 9:30pm.
