#4 Hong Kong Stories Live Show
What: Living in Hong Kong could be a soap opera in itself – There are so many funny stories about living in the SAR of China, the fragrant harbour, the 852 or whatever you want to call it, and there’s nothing quite like sitting down with a beer and sharing them all! This monthly live show held at The Fringe club has been described as “True stories told before a live audience. It’s better than drama. It’s better than comedy. It’s real life!’ Tickets cost $120
When: 27th April, 10 – 6pm
Where: Fringe Club, Wyndham St, Central
What: La Vache!‘s notorious free-flow brunch soiree returns with a house DJ, unlimited steak frites, mimosas, guillotine cocktails and house wine. And this month it is even better than the last, as the next day is a public holiday, so you can really let your hair down! Head on down for some classic disco tunes and some seriously good steak (this is definitely not one for the vegetarians though!)
$438 per head +10% service charge.
When: Sunday 1st May, 12 – 3pm
Where: La Vache, 48 Peel Street, Soho
