The article had a few reference's to Mario's cafe & bar:

  • 1 Mario's Western Style Café-Bar-Restaurant (马老板的店; MǎLǎoBǎnDeDiàn), Beihai, Weizhou Island, South Bay Road beside SanPo Temple, +86 18677998067, . 8:00AM-1:00AM. Mixture of Western style and Chinese cuisine. Owned by a German and his Chinese wife. Breakfast, Italian noodles, sandwiches, pizza, western style and goat BBQ, ground coffee, cakes, ice cream, cocktails. Limited menu during off-season. Reasonable prices.

Sounded like a great place! Unfortuantely it's gone. I asked the locals for the story, apparently the 10 year lease was up on the shared land of Piggy Bar Hostel and Mario's Cafe-Bar-Restaurant, and the owner wanted to increase the price 10x. Now the lot is vacant, some of the temporary structures gone. Mario's torn sign hangs over the door.

Some photos of Mario's: and the old backpackers:

I'm going to go and remove those references from the main article now.
