This week officially marks the festive season! Get ready for Christmas shopping, stockings-fillers, mince pie eating and champagne drinking. It’s our favourite time of year! To end November, Hong Kong is hosting none other than the biggest and best music festival around: Clockenflap. Also, there’s no forgetting that it is Thanksgiving on Thursday! We’ve got our recommendations, as well as what else is going on around town, here!
It’s time to shave those moustaches, men (it couldn’t of come quicker for us ladies)! Asia’s most extensive rum bar is hosting a very special Movember night, from 7pm to 11pm, gents can “shave for a shot” with Cuts and Glory’s top notch barbers whilst donating to the Movember cause and listening to the supporting set played by Cliché Records. This year’s concept offers 3 types of shaves and each goes with a type of rum, carefully picked to go with the character of the shave! The shave is $200 and 20% is given to the Movember charity. Donate online here and pre-book your spot by calling Honi Honi at +852 2353 0885.
