It’s that time again! The mess that is Lush Rush Week is about to hit Wudaokou once more. It’s the week we all love and fear. Love it, because it is absolutely awesome. Fear it because it is absolute awesome. It’s so much awesomeness that it can be hard to handle. Below is a little run down of the day-to-day activities along with an explanation of the achievement game! Your chance to win awesome prizes! That’s right, it’s not just a party week. We’ve turned it into a competition – a competition without any real losers.
Achievement game: Every event provides you with an opportunity to gain points in the race to become the winner of Lush Rush Week Spring 2015. What does it take to win? The ability to have fun seven days in a row – and perhaps a little luck! 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. You just have to get 55 points to win a special Rush Week shirt! 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. Your card is personal. No combining cards. That would be cheating – and nobody likes a cheater. You will of course be allowed to keep the card afterwards as a souvenir to remind you of the awesome week!
Program and points are as follows:
Monday is the City Weekend kickoff party at Lush. It’s our Martini night, even cheaper than normally. 15 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 will have earned your first 5 points. An easy start.
Tuesday at Sugar Shack Pizza will be one of the nights you’ll keep talking about for a long time. It’s WSU’s Power Hour. ONE shot of beer EVERY minute for an HOUR. Easy enough? That’s what they all say. Until they try it that is. 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, sponsored by our friends from 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.
After making our brain concentrate hard for 2 hours answering Andrea’s questions it’s time to move about a bit, taking the party to Sugar Shack. Don’t want to promise too much, but I would be surprised if beer pong tables wouldn’t be set up for some friendly competition.
Thursday the battle continues at Sugar Shack Pizza with Beer Pong. Again you get 5 points for joining and winners will get 15 points as well as the usual bottle of booze! If the last couple of weeks are any indicators (of course they are) the night will be packed with pong and dancing! Come early to make sure you get to join in the fun!
Friday night Lush comes alive with our houseband The Avengers of Music! This is your chance to party with the superheroes, we got them all. Captain America as lead singer (yes the man apparently can do everything), The Hulk picks up guitar and bass as the big green beast he is while charming us with his voice. Hawkeye shows off his impeccable aim on the drums! Another unexpected guitar-champ is Iron Man, but guess we shouldn’t be surprised. It is Iron Man after all! It takes a special kind of woman to keep these boys in line, which is why we have Black Widow on the saxophone! The heroes takes the stage 9.30pm
Saturday is the day to show off your dance moves. In co-operation with the Latin Community at BeiDa we are throwing a Latin party that will blow your mind. In addition to DJ Manu playing some great tunes and a packed dance floor we have some sick specials for you. 5rmb shots (tequila, whiskey, vodka), 10rmb mixed drinks, 20rmb Corona! Show up to the party and you will have earned yourself 10 achievement points.
Sunday It’s time for Open Mic. Get on stage and get those final points, one performance will get you 15 points! It’s the perfect way to calm 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! And don’t forget to grab/steal one of the red wristbands made specifically for this Lush Rush!
IT’S GONNA GET MESSY!!!
