DJ Party 2020 Everybody Loves a Canadian Boy

For DJ’s birthday, I planned a surprise party last night featuring a special “social distance” celebration (during COVID-19 pandemic) including his many friends and family around the world, plus his local Shanghai friends for a dinner/drinks evening in a private pagoda at a lovely Shanghai villa restaurant.
