Top 10 Things to Do in Hong Kong, October 30 to November 7

Block Rocking Creeps Halloween doesn’t have to just last one terrifying night. Kick off the spooktacular weekend with a Halloween Block Party jointly hosted by Butchers Club Burger and Djiboutii. They’re taking over Landale Street with drinks, live music, performers and deals. A burger at Butchers Club gets you a shot at Djiboutii, while a cocktail at Djiboutii gets you a shot of bourbon with Butchers.
4:30pm-late, Landale St., Wan Chai.

Shady Shuffle Dance like no one’s watching at No Lights No Lycra, because no one is—they turn the lights down low and all that’s left is you, the music and hopefully enough spatial awareness that you don’t dance into someone else’s face.

HEYYYYYY, HEYYYY BABY The Sevens isn’t just an excuse to transfuse massive amounts of Carlsberg into your bloodstream: It’s also an Olympic sport. Support our boys and girls at the Asia Rugby Sevens Qualifier, which will give the Hong Kong men’s and women’s teams a shot at taking part in the 2016 Rio Olympics. Ooh! Ah!

Charity Bites Like eating for a good cause? Sure you do. Chi Fan for Charity is back on Saturday, November 7 for the third year running. The event ditches the “charity dinner gala” thing for something much more low-key: It partners with 27 restaurants all over town to throw dinner parties in each venue. Tables are hosted by friends, associations and some of Hong Kong’s most interesting people. All proceeds go to the Little Life Warrior Society, which works to improve the lives of children fighting cancer. We certainly can’t think of a better cause than that.
Nov 7. Tickets from $850 all-inclusive, chifanforcharity.org.
