When the weather starts heating up so do our social calendars, with events and performances we can’t wait to attend. This month, Hong Kong is filled with festivals and fun activities (for the entire family) you don’t want to miss. Indulge in 200 different types of craft brews or dance the night away to your favorite K-pop band, this July anything is possible.

Celebrate the festivities at Lily & Bloom with all-you-can-eat bites and free-flow Peroni beer (HK$388 + 10% per guest) to boot. The all-American fare includes dishes such as sriracha and bacon potato salad, baked Mac N’ Cheese, house-smoked baby back ribs and grilled hot dogs with a bacon and pineapple salsa. Show your true American spirit with a wings eating contest — eat the most wings in 30 seconds and win a bottle of champagne.

Wanna One in Hong Kong
The South-Korean music industry is slowly (but surely) taking over the world and luckily for us that means more concerts. Wanna One — the 11-member group who was formed through a competition called Produce 101 — is returning to Hong Kong for their first world tour, ONE: THE WORLD. With cheerful tracks such as Energetic and BOOMERANG, this concert is not to be missed!
The ONE: WORLD TOUR will be held on 28 July and 29 July at Asia World-Expo.
