Happy Friday guys and gals and Happy Mid-Autumn Festival. Apart from picking up some traditional mooncakes, there are also mookies (mooncakes + cookies), moonpies and moon-whatever to celebrate one of the most loved festivals in China. As usual, Shanghai's always got plenty of stuff to keep you busy. There’s an art and design market, a movie screening, a crab fest, an art talk and plenty of nightlife events. Here are our top picks.

Mid-Autumn Crab Fest

Not a fan of mooncakes? Fret not – celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival with a special crab set from Bird instead. The menu includes crab with fennel salad and green pea panna cotta, spicy crab bouillabaisse with crème fraîche, three-crab benedict and a glass of Shanghai Mule.
