How you know summer isn’t quite over in Qingdao

There are two ways, in fact. The first is the beer-in-a-bag kegs are still on the sidewalks. The second is:

Man bellies.

I’ve opted not to provide you a photo. But if it’s still hot enough for men to air their bellies by walking around with their shirts rolled up to their armpits, then it’s still officially “hot.”

When the sidewalk beer-in-a-bag kegs and the man bellies are gone, the dog meat won’t be too far behind.
