Watch: Beijing Ultimate Frisbee players party it up in Hennessy ad

Hennessy ad featuring Tao, Alicia, Sam Dreiman, Ken Su, Yan Hao and Steven Zhang!

We spent about ten hours filming in an underground garage near East Fourth Ring Road. What you see is the result. Thanks to the company Sparkle for producing it, and to Alicia for hooking us up.

WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Trivia winnings party a winner

On Saturday, September 3, Kirby had a trivia winnings party at his place. A lot of people got really drunk.

Some people have been raving about this new Taiwanese club at The Place called Sparks. Ask Sam Dreiman about it if you want the details. YJ knows too.

WEEK IN REVIEW: Off to North Korea...

Not much to review this week... two things to preview though: Big Brother's second practice is tomorrow -- the first on real fields -- and a few Beijingers are going to North Korea for an Ultimate tournament. Will check in after we get back on Tuesday.

I'll be tied up with a writing assignment for a couple weeks, so expect this blog to be silent for the duration.

WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Thrombosis, veins, and mini-hulk earns his nickname

Tuesday: Uh-oh, Joe! Thrombosis, and such.
Friday: Joe's drinks night at Let's Seafood. Kevin's parents still in town. Also, Stumble Inn first-year anniversary.
Saturday: Chaoyang Park: first Big Brother practice of fall season.
Sunday: Something...

Joe's arm puffed up. It was scary. He's gonna have to go back to the States to get that fixed via surgery...
