Peng Ke Wan Sui! or May Punk Live for Ten Thousand Years!
First and foremost, a warning to the reader: This paper will not at all reflect in-depth sociological research of modern Chinese society, as such a task is patently impossible. As Chinese society rushes at a desperate pace into the future, it is beyond anyone's ability to keep up with the daily changes taking place. Rather, this is simply going to be an account of the experiences that I have had working at a bar throughout the month of January. This, of course, seems entirely laughable, banal, a waste of time, and hardly a worthy topic for academia. I make no argument to the contrary, but in my defense, I do believe that I have learned a few interesting things about working, living, drinking, and rocking in Beijing.
