Welcome to Fryday on Morning Brew. We’re off to San Francisco at 10.10 to talk to Chef Matt Dolan, live from his restaurant Twenty Five Lusk. He’s a world class chef by night and secret dumpling fiend by day, so that’s what’s on the menu today. After 11 it’s all about Hong Kong’s one and only science fiction conference, Melon 2019: Aliens on the Galactic Silk Road. We welcome the founder Fritz Demopoulos and special guest Robbie Stamp, who is the Executive Producer of the movie version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. At 11.40 we find out about an upcoming dance performance with quite a difference. “Sidestepped: A Dance for Selective Amnesia” is a collaboration between Butoh choreographer Masami Yurabe and renowned British cellist Oliver Coates. Both of them join us in the studio this morning. After 12 James Marsh is back again with this week’s movie review. Joining James today will be film maker Alexandre Philippe, whose new documentary "Memory: The Origins of Alien" plays tonight at the Hong Kong International Film Festival. We'll be on Facebook Live.

It's Thursday on Morning Brew, and to celebrate the day in 1991 when the World Wide Web was opened to the public our first song in today’s chain is from the Stereo MCs. See if you can “connect” it to your choice of the next song, and so on. Email your ideas. After 10, well known grinch to the stars Steve Vines will be with us to chew over what’s been a relatively quiet local news week...so far. At 11.40 your vet du jour is animal physio Dr. Jane McNae. After 12 we’re off to the movies a day early (which is cool, as at 12.10 tomorrow we meet Chris Barron from The Spin Doctors) with reviewer James Marsh who’ll join us in the line from England to talk about Crazy Rich Asians.
