Newcomer Suzhou Native (yeah… it’s complicated) Jim Zhou has a pretty good rundown of some of Suzhou’s finer refreshment stands in his most recent post. In a form I’ve not followed in years now, Jim throws himself into the bar scene and we get to watch the results.
I was talking to Maggie last night about dancing and how we never go out and dance. I used to love to cut tile and shake my fat ass (in true white boy form – which in China can be considered a compliment), but I guess the life of a taken man does not jive well with a mass of sweaty young things.
The obvious solution would be to get Maggie on the floor, and she hesitantly has, but with all the stoicism of someone who feels the room is watching her do something she’s very uncomfortable doing.
Meh, dance music is lame, and there’s no place in town I know that has a good live funk band – Leroy Emmanuel, where are you?
For anyone that’s looking for a bar to go to in Suzhou – though Jim’s only two weeks back in the city he seems to get around – check out his blog: Artificially Sweetened.
