What better way to spend your weekend than sampling Beijing’s best pizza joints’ vegetarian or meat heavy creations slice-by-slice at the beijinger‘s 2015 Pizza Cup Launch Party. This year is going to be held over two days, October 17-18 from 11am-8pm at the Galaxy Soho. The launch party kicks off a three-week long of voting of the best pizza in town as per your taste buds and those of every other pizza lover in town.
