Shrimp Update

I have been told that the live shrimp dish is called "Tipsy Shrimp" because the liquid they are in is actually wine. So the poor things are drowning in alcohol before they are eaten! My Chinese friends tell me that Chinese people believe that eating live things increases your 'yang' energy. I still think it's gross!
