This bar is kind of a hole-in-the-wall place that not many people seem to know about. So, I thought I'd mention it here. Golden Apple Bar (金苹果音乐酒） This place has a good atmosphere, with flags from all over the world pinned onto the ceiling and funky paintings on the walls. There is usually music and the owner (Jacob) is really friendly. It's located right off of No. 4 road (address below) and is open almost every day. On holidays, there are usually a wide range of decorations and usually drink specials. Address in Chinese: 杭州下沙四号大街东海未名园白杨路27号. Phone number: 18179306399 (Fair warning: the owner can't speak English) Feel free to comment with information on other Xiasha bars you know about!
New here, I'd like to know about the quality of the water that comes from our taps - in Hangzhou and China in general... I know to only drink bottled or boiled water, but after coming off my bike the other day and scraping up my hands, I got to thinking more carefully about water-borne bacteria. How come the water would be too much for my stomach to deal with, yet it was okay to spread over my broken skin? Short answer - it isn't - I just came back from the hospital with some antibiotics to treat blood poisoning the doc said I got from contact between my wound and water from the tap... So is it better to just not wash one's hands? If my cut got infected from washing my hands, what's the point of rinsing after using the bathroom, especially since that procedure rarely involves soap here... ? Do people just not shower when they have cuts and scrapes? How about brushing my teeth? Washing fruit must be counter productive, no? Could someone please clarify for me how dangerous the stuff that comes out the tap is? According to the doctor I have to wear a glove if I 'really must' take a shower tomorrow... It just seems nuts to me that I have septicemia from washing my hands, showering like normal, while having a graze on my palm...
As i'm sure everyone is already aware, The Ashes starts on Wednesday (and basically continues sporadically until about February i think). It might be a long shot, but i was wondering if there's anyone out there who wants to try and catch some of it over a pint. Maybe at Vineyard? Tom
