The fuerdai weren't ever the kings of Sanlitun, they showed up but never were the center of attention, foreigners and girls alike didn't give a damn about them. So obviously that place was disharmonious and hurt many Chinese feelings, it must disappear!

 

We've had the same problem in my city, one place owned by a Canadian dude that became very popular with foreigners, then with your average locals, then one day our local fuerdai saw that and showed up with their obnoxious behavior.

 

No one there gave a damn about them so they became frustrated and one of them started to mess around with foreigners who just ignored him. One of the fuerdai lost it and started a fight with foreigners, got his butt kicked and was banned by the owner.

 

Several days later, police raid, the cops went out of their way to find an excuse to have the place closed down, did urine tests and turned the place upside down, couldn't find anything, left with a bitter taste.

 

For several months after that there were regular police raids but they never found anything, they eventually gave up and the place was never so busy than it is today. No more fuerscumbags and the area is new with many Chinese businesses so they can't just demolish it.

lived in several cities in China over the years, it is very frustrating to not have a local pub to have a beer and go home for dinner. Age and family obligations sort of make night bar drinking disappear but having a place to relax and enjoy a pint is something i really miss in China.

 

These people are so self absorbed, i suppose socializing and meeting people while having a beer is just too much trouble.

That's a shame, I had more than a few good nights there when I was in Beijing.

This will be hard on the gay Chinese even more. Many of the homosexual bar hoppers in Beijing came to the foreign bars because they were accepted and did not get any harassment or backlash. the locals are not so accommodating at their bars.

I was always confused by this. The rich arseholes are attracted to where the foreigners drink, be arseholes, foreigners find somewhere else. Repeat ad infinitum. Why do they insist on turning up where foreigners are? Who do they think they are going to impress with their gobby arsiness?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
