  • Things to Do in Cairo This Valentine’s Day

    vday

    Instinct might tell you to roll-up in your own cocoon of loneliness this Friday, but bars and clubs in Cairo are going all out for the mother of all non-occasions, Valentine’s Day, and there’s no shame in drinking your problematic love-life away – as my father once told me on Mother’s Day over the phone from a hotel.

    BACK 2 BASICS: KILL CUPID @ KATAMEYA HEIGHTS CLUBHOUSE
    (Thursday)1888570_10151838537765997_1029420078_nAccording to recent studies, protesting has overtaken football and sitting aimlessly at cafes as Egypt’s favourite pastime and Back 2 Basics are joining in with their own anti-love protest, Kill Cupid. The loveless will gather at Katameya Heights Clubhouse on Thursday to indulge in specially made cocktails such as ‘Love Bites’ &  ‘Love Stinks’. The ringleaders on this assault on love? SHawky and Omar Hafez.

    A RED VELVET VALENTINE’S @ NAPA GRILL

    There’s more Valentine’s fun at Fairmont Nile City courtesy of cutey-patooty Brit, Ellie of London, who’ll be performing at Napa Grill and accepting gifts from those struck by her vocal arrows of love of at least 1000LE in value.

    HEART BEATS @ O BAR

    DJ Feedo headlines O Bar’s own Valentine’s Day shindig, because, you know, hip-hop is the language of love. A big softy at heart, expect Feedo to lean more on his r&b side tonight and I’ve already put my request in: anything by Jodeci.
