SHANGHAI: Coffee Bean (Cloud Nine Mall) Close to Zhongshan Park, Shanghai 龙之梦
Once upon a time, a group of Shanghai Expats decided to meet at a local cafe to compare notes and enjoy some coffee to start off the weekend. It grew into what was known as the Saturday Morning Coffee Meeting and has been a source of many friendships and good times.

While the official coffee meeting was moved to Sundays at XinTiandi, for me, it never quite had the same charm as the Saturday morning ones. Saturday mornings were more relaxed and allowed participants to have a bit more free time to socialize, grab lunch and sometimes, many times, we hung out all day and into the evening parting sometimes after a late night out! So, after carefully considering my free time, i am going to start up a saturday morning event again though this time in Zhong Shan Park area to make it more convenient for me and those in the central and western parts of the city to come by.

So in talking to several veteran expats and several new ones, it seems logical to set up a meet on Saturdays, so thats what i am doing. After talking with Coffee Bean's management, they have graciously offered to host us at their Zhong Shan Park location AND will extend us the 10% discount extended on the other coffee event.
So here is the deal:

This coming Saturday morning (we started on June 2, 2007) and every Saturday, from 10:30am-12:30pm, come meet for coffee at The Coffee bean and Tea Leaf located on the 1st floor back entrance of Cloud Nine Mall ( 龙之梦). We will hang out, chat, and share experiences and afterwards will plan to do lunch somewhere nearby as a group. Other possibilities are to shop the mall, or go to Carrefour downstairs, or take the Line 2,3, or 4 metro somewhere to explore the day away. There is parking downstairs for families and individuals with cars that need to arrive that way.

So those expats from the western areas of town, especially Gubei, HongQiao, ZhongShan Park area and Jing An, this is a convenient place to drop by. Not sure how much more convenient a place i could find. So come on out!

Any questions, please PM me. My wife and I (and babyyu too) will host this event and welcome all Shanghai Expat community members to come! We look forward to seeing you!
