There is a new lifestyle magazine in Beijng called Lifestyle Coffee. It seems to be a version of a different magazine called Lifestyle; however Lifestyle Coffee is only distributed in Starbucks. Duh.
The image on the left is the invitation to their launch party, and it looks like it's going to be fun. Coffee and sex, who could say no? Unfortunately, the Chinese name of the party promises a let down: the characters mean "exciting coffee" which just isn't the same thing.
