My mother is in Shanghai for a bridge tournament; I just received an email from her. She was raving about their dinner which was hosted by the Chinese Contract Bridge Association @ the International Convention Center by the Wang Po - on the other side of the Bund.
Apparently , to wow her ( which takes a lot ) , they pulled some strings and got the lights all lit up by the Wang Po. Nice -
She says Shanghai is definitely on the up and up, making Hong Kong look over its shoulder.
