Has anyone on ChinesePod ever been to a room escape event? If you don't know what it is, it's a fun activity you can do with friends where you work together to solve clues and riddles and work your way out of a giant puzzle. Some of the ChinesePod team did it recently (see pic), and we highly recommend it.
