City Weekend is a free, bi-weekly entertainment event and venue listing magazine based out of China. Its on-line edition is both autonomous and complimentary to the print magazine - City Weekend is "reader-powered" and sources most of its information directly from the expat community.
The magazine distinguishes itself by being one of the first private English language publications in China - it has been distributed since 1999 in Beijing, and 2000 in Shanghai.
The magazine itself acts as a source of information for many in the expat and local community. Staff rely on its reader-powered website to access local communities and generate everything from national articles to factual news about local events, venues, and classified ads in China's two largest cities — Beijing and Shanghai.
City Weekend also publishes a variety of free guides yearly including a Bar and Restaurant Guide (good for visitors, better if you actually live in the city) and the Service Directory (a small English business and service phone book). The magazine also produces supplements focusing on expat families (Parents & Kids, as well as Shanghai Family), and the real-estate market (Home & Office).
