With Halloween around the corner it seems that the gremlins are already working their mischief – the dates and locations of the BeijingKids Halloween Costume Brunch Ball were misprinted in the events, calendar and Top Ten sections October issue, so to clarify:
The Shunyi Halloween Party is on Saturday, October 29th at the Hilton Beijing Capital Airport and the downtown party is on Sunday, October 30th at the Hilton Beijing Wangfujing. Both parties run from 10.30am-2pm.
All kidding aside, this ranks up there as one of our more spectacular screw-ups and we sincerely apologize to our sponsors and you, dear reader, for the error and confusion. If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to call us at 5820 5405 (ticket information) or 5820 7700 ext 883.
In penance (and due to the fact that after a weekend of work today feels like a Wednesday anyway), we’ve pushed up our Midweek Giveaway this week and decided to up the ante on the prize: We’re giving away tickets for an entire table for ten (worth RMB 2,000) for the Shunyi event on Oct 29 to the reader who submits the best photo of their child in costume for Halloween from any previous year.
To enter simply submit a photo in the comments section below (you might notice that we have now enabled this function in the comments section for readers) or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll post it for you. Good luck and Happy Haunting!
