Forums > Food & Drink > Whither Lazy Bones?

I just called Lazy Bones twice to order food and got no answer- even after eight or nine rings. I was under the impression given the last announcement on this site that they would be re-opening on the 26th of February. Has this been delayed?

If someone could inform me of Lazy Bones' status I'd appreciate it, as I'm sure other customers would be.

The Wicker Basket often has them on sale in their baked goods section. They're pretty decent, I think.

Forums > Food & Drink > Happy Hour in Kunming

Hey hoolioj,

Most of the bars/cafes along Wenhua Xiang and Wenlin Jie have regular happy hour specials. Salvadors seems to be the most popular, as it's daily between 4 and 8. Double gin and tonics are 16, and when I say double I mean double. They have a bunch of other drinks, and I'm sure one of Sal's regulars or owners can give you more detailed information than I can.

The Box and French Cafe have similar deals, though at the Box you get the added bonus of free appetizers on Thursdays should you order one of their happy hour drinks.

If you live up in the north, Sandra's in Beichen is a good place to go for stiff drinks and excellent food.

Anyway I'd take a cab down to Wenlin Jie/Wenhua Xiang if I were you and have a look- this is not a town that makes it difficult for its residents and guests to drink a lot!

I'm sure the Kunming gossip-mill will fill you in about the details of the fight if you're so eager to hear them. I was hoping to avoid bitchy name-dropping in this space, that's all. Plus it's entirely irrelevant to the point of my post.

Something tells me the very people who can't see the difference between foreigners and Chinese fighting in China are the same ones who would complain loudly about foreigners fighting in their own country.


No results found.


Great round-up, but didn't the China-Australia match happen in March? In any case, it doesn't matter.



I've been to the Box II a few times, and the food is good, particularly the pizza, easily the best in Kunming. The pasta I've had is less than spectacular but by no means subpar.

Good atmosphere, quite nice for a quiet evening with friends or something more romantic. Not cheap, but not a bad deal considering the quality of the experience.
