It’s time! Be ready! We start tomorrow! Lush Rush is our version Rush Week / Fresher’s week / whatever they call it where you come from. It’s the week of welcoming you to Wudaokou. By now you should have settled in and realized that studying is important, but you need somewhere to relax and party. Next week we are doing all of our normal events a little bit bigger than normal. And we have thrown in a couple of extra events just for the kick of it. Our normal happy hours have been made happier as well!
Achievement game: Every event provides you with an opportunity to gain points in the race to become the winner of Lush Rush Week Fall 2012. What does it take to win? Party skills! With something going on every day, it’s going to require commitment. Commitment to party. What does the winner get, you ask. 1000 rmb bar tab to spend anyway you want at Lush!! Yes, competition will be tough, but don’t despair. Even if you don’t win the tab, you can still get a prize. One of the famous I (heart) WU T-shirts will be yours if you just get 55 points or above. That’s worth fighting for, right? I’ll provide you with scorecard along with your first points. Don’t lose your card! If you do, you’ll have to start over. And card is personal. No combining cards. That would be cheating – and nobody likes a cheater J
Program and points are as follows:
Monday is the City Weekend kickoff party at Lush. It’s our Martini night, even cheaper than normally. 10 rmb for a martini between 6pm and midnight. To get your points for this event you need to buy a martini during happy hour (8-10pm) and you have earned your first 5 points.
Tuesday at Pyro will be one of the nights you’ll keep talking about for a long time. It’s SNAP Adventures’ Power Hour. ONE shot of beer EVERY minute for an HOUR. Easy enough? We continue with Centurion, same deal but for another 40 minutes. So totally 1 shot every minute for 100 minutes! Good luck. This evening you have the chance to get 20 points.
Wednesday is our legendary Pub Quiz, this week sponsored by Plastered 8. Meaning in addition to the normal prizes you can win some of those funny t-shirts. Since competition is bound to be fierce, we give you 5 points just for participation and both 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will earn additional 15 points each.
Thursday is the only night with something happening at both Lush and Pyro. At Lush there will be delicious home brewed beer from Great Leap Brewery and discounted prices on our normal imported beer. At Pyro, the battle continues with Beer Pong. Again you get 5 points for joining and winners will get 15 points. No extra points for 2nd place, but there will be additional prizes this night.
Friday night Lush comes alive with Tavey Lean and the Solid Gold Dream Machine on stage. These guys will make sure you start the weekend the right way.
Saturday we celebrate Pyro’s 5th birthday party. And what better way to do that, than with a 555 party. Meaning you can get draft beer, gin-tonic or a shot for 5rmb! All night! What kind of shot? Take your pick between tequila, vodka and whiskey. Come help celebrate 5 years of Pyro madness as we get ready for the next 5.
Sunday we round up this semester’s Lush Rush with Open Mic at Lush. Get on stage and get those final points, one performance will get you 15 points! It’s the perfect way to come down after battling all week. Who am I kidding? Calm down? We party on!
In addition to the points mentioned above you can get 5 points for somehow managing to get yourself one of the classic black I (heart) Wu wristbands. And wearing it! There is also 10 points if you can figure out the secret of Lush Rush.
Let the games begin! And may the odds be ever in your favor. (Yes, I’m a nerd).
