It's a hot and steamy night in this city... this Forbidden City. A fellow traveler told me about a secret spot; every city has one - the kind of place you only hear about - a den of hot swingin music, dancing, showgirls, imbibing, and general frivolity -- with dames breaking hearts and gents dressed to the nines. Be sure you're on the next steamer due to arrive in SHANGHAI on July 10th; the first of many stops in my travels... won't you join me?
