Avast, ye scurvey dogs – 11th Hour Relief! We’re Sticking Around

it’s been a long month, it’s been a rough one… It’s over!
The pirate ship will not be leaving XIguan HUtong for the foreseeable future although you should keep scouting the horizons for signs of new landings.

We played chicken with the landlord… She played chicken with us!
Both parties jumped off at the 11th hour with a deal that is mutually displeasing.

Yes.. that is a reworked contract for 48 months taking us to October 2017!!!

Now, we can move back to regular tales of debauchery, balls, sausages and rum!! just the stuff we love!

On a personal note, thank you to everyone for the support during these rough times.
Thanks to everyone that called, emailed, showed up to express support.
Thanks to everyone who scouted the streets of Beijing to help us find a new location.

May the rum long flow…
