As we eagerly anticipate the opening of that monument to global ingenuity, the Expo 2010 Shanghai, it is also with some trepidation, in the knowledge that a number of venues, both old and new, will be shutting their doors to eager revelers over the course of the opening week. Unless you want to make a series of useless expeditions, make sure to give your chosen haunt a quick ring on the phone before zooming out the door - just in case.

Otherwise, enjoy your May holiday! There's Mother's Day, Cinco de Mayo, several fantastic concerts at the Shanghai Oriental Art Center, new restaurants Downstairs and Chambar, recently opened Obama Entertainment Club and so much more to keep occupied all those not skipping down to the pavilion sites.
