dog meat off Olympic menu in Beijing


Breaking news. If you visit Beijing for the Olympic Games, which commence at 8pm on the 8th day of the 8th month of this year, you will be sad to learn that you most likely won't be able to order dog meat at any of the Olympic capital's restaurants. City officials have urged hotels and restaurants to temporarily take off man's best friend off their menus. For more on this, check out an article from the Financial Times.

Hi Yanni! Nice little blog you got here! Thanks for letting us know that dog will not be served in Beijing at this year's Olympic Games. I know Western food customs are quite different from those in the East, but eating dogs has always been a repulsive notion for me... but different strokes for different folks, I guess... I have added your blog to my blogroll link list as I think you have a good thing going on here! :)

Hey Sam,
Great to hear from you, sir! I agree with you, I'm all about new experiences, but somehow I can't fathom myself eating labrador souvlaki.
