Things To Do

Weekly round up – Your guide to what’s on in Hong Kong 22 to 28 August

By: Emily McCabe

Silent. Disco. Yoga. For me that sums it up for this week’s list! We could always throw in glow in the dark beer pong too and see what happens? Never is there a boring week in this town. Aside from the above, we also have some great kids’ activities, a cool concert, and more. Now, go forth!

On Now
– Learn to Read @ Love by Mary J (Dream Big Yoga)

From August 1st until the 30th, Love by Mary J will be holding a reading session for the little people in our lives. In the hopes to encourage reading as a healthy habit over the summer. Its good timing as August is so hot and school is just around the corner (if it hasn’t started already!). Free entrance, and the store is open from 11am until 8pm daily.
Love by Mary J, No.22, G/F, Fort Street, North Point
23/8 Silent Disco Yoga Class @ Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park

I love this idea! What a cool way to tune out whilst tuning in. With the help of wireless headphones, practice your yoga to selected music and be guided by Nora Lim from the Yoga Room in the outdoors on the Harbour. Namaste! $150 per person. Registration starts at 6.15pm; class is from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.
Eastern Street North, Sheung Wan



23/8 Imagine Dragons – Smoke + Mirrors Tour Live in Hong Kong

If you are a fan of Alternative Rock then head on over to watch these guys do what they do best. Imagine Dragons spent two years touring their progressive band to different international arenas. Originating as a low-key, Las Vegas-based quartet, they then soon became the Grammy winners for the single “Radioactive”. The band has definitely had some life-changing successes, and with that have thrown themselves into writing and creating. Tickets are $288 per person.
Asia World – Expo, Asia World Summit, Lantau Island



23/8 Canadian Club Kids’ Stampede

This Stampede is for kids from 18 months to 5 year olds, and is a full day of educational activities to share with their parents! Little Cowboy Picasso Art Jam? Sounds like so much fun, and much less messy out of the house. There will also be a Dinosaur Dig, Mini Masterchef involving cake decorating and Mini Shopkeepers. It all sounds like a great day and games filled with lots of kiddie interaction. $400 for members, $500 for non-members.

27/8 Glow Beer Pong Tournament

Let me just say that again. Glow in the dark beer pong! That’s right, they glow in the dark and with that add a totally new dimension to the game. This is definitely something new and fun. I most certainly love a game inspired night out, to reignite the kid in you. Guests will be using face paint so please dress accordingly. The teams consist of 2-4 players, and to be sure to secure a space, you need to register now! However walk-ins are also welcome. Games start 7pm to 10pm.
2nd floor, Cosmos Building. 8-11 Lan Kwai Fong, Central

Just in time to celebrate this year’s new additional public holiday on the 3 of September. They had a highly successful brunch for Bastille Day so have decided a repeat of the revelry.
