Forums > Living in Kunming > The New Uprock - Your Input

In its better days Uprock was fun because it had both a loud dance floor and a cool area to sit and chat, something that is pretty rare at most places in town. Preserving that kind of atmosphere without a roof terrace might not be easy but I think it'd be worth a try.

Forums > Food & Drink > No Smoking at Salvador's?

Also my two cents- as a strict non-smoker I fully endorse Salvadors or any other business should they wish to ban smoking indoors- a restaurant like Salvadors takes great pains to create a pleasant atmosphere inside- what with the music and decor- and foul cigarette smoke tends to undermine that, in my opinion.

JJ,

Well I guess it's a Kunming Taboo to say so, but the bars that ban smoking correlate pretty well with ones that have a distinctly Christian missionary clientele. Unsurprisingly these tend to be located in the Beichen area up north or in the Kaiyuan Xiaoqu area in the West, as well as a few exceptions such as Mazagran.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Stolen Nichole Fahri Jacket (Babi Club Kundun)

What're you doing wearing a jacket in this weather? :)

It might be worth having a look on Taobao in the coming days, as whomever jacked your coat could probably use the 5,000 odd kuai it could fetch more than the warmth.

You sure it wasn't the fellow whose girl you were chatting up that stole your stuff?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Fantasy Baseball

Calling all local baseball fans-

A few of us have started a fantasy baseball league on Yahoo and are looking for new managers from around the Kunming area.

Whether you're a keen fantasy player interesting in earning a bit of pocket change, or simply a baseball fan looking for a way to keep up with the league while in China, our league is perfect for you.

We're seeking up to 9 more players, so there is plenty of space available. Time though, is running short- our live draft is scheduled for Monday, March 22 at 9pm. For more details, contact Matt at [email protected]

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.
