Things can happen big in Beijing. Sometimes, too big. Take, for example, the roll-out of these concession stands across the city. I think they started being setup toward the beginning of last year… often competing with vendors serving food from san lun ches. Then, somewhere around the end of the year… poof, the vendors were gone. Some stands were taken away, some were re-purposed by other vendors, and some were just left to rot like the one above.
