Welcome to Morning Brew. Brits of the world today say, "Don't mention it, its cool" as the USA gives them thanks. Or something like that. We celebrate as usual this week after 10, with Uncle Sam Vines. This week; the CE urges people to resume shopping in Mong Kok, with a special promotion; if you can stand in one place for longer than five minutes, you'll be treated to a wonderful, free, jalapeno cocktail. Also, Archaeologists have discovered new relics at the To Kwa Wan MTR site. "We weren't hiding", said the group of lovely fellows in red hats and armbands. A big welcome back to MB for world famous Chinese composer and pianist Bright Sheng, at 11.40, as we discuss all things music-ee. At 12.10, live music from Russian singer and mandolin player Sonia Firsova who's performing at tonight's Karma gig (in LKF). (9:30am-1pm, facebook, or email
