Shanghai's Best Weekend Events

Aurora Halal | Chic'N'Pop | MVP Secret Party

Man, we were hard-pressed to find stuff to do that's NOT getting smashed for St. Paddy's Day because we already did a list for that. Not all is green in the city though, with parties like Aurora Halal at Yuyintang, black metal (and a possible goat sacrifice) at Inferno and perhaps most curiously, MVP's secret party. They'll only disclose the venue on the day (Friday the 17th). We're hoping MVP would do something hilarious like taking folks out to a St. Patrick's party at a sports bar.
