Would go drinking at Wu or Sanlitun and I hope those bars wont shut.. otherwise, we have to organize home party for drinking.. beijing is amost full of beijingers right now...Yeeeahhhh!!!!
I've heard 2kolegas will be closed over the festival season. Not sure about D-22. Overall it looks like there wont be any interesting live gigs happening else where.
here i found some festival activities (dumplings etc.) during the festival days:

Hahahaha ... if you have not been "sardined" before in a temple festival, it is highly recommended :)
around festival days, you hardly get sardined if you dont go to those festival markets in Beijing
it will be a dead city
20mio is the number of true beijingers, you have to count in all the suburbs, pluse about 5-6 mio. ppl who daily move in and out Beijing. So i dont know the number of all ppl staying in Beijing altogether.
Beijing local people: 13000000.
ah, ok, i was wrong then
Don't worry, take it easy huh, hehe............
if you dont have any better places to go, here is where i will be:
will go out with my camera and shoot a city out of its busy face.
