    things-RD

    The weekend is nigh and as has become the trend for the last month or so, there’s plenty of things to see and do in terms of events. Since the end of ‘Sahel Season’, there’s been a noticeable increase in gigs and parties, as well as several new concepts, and this weekend is set to deliver, with everywhere from Darb 1718, to Cairo Jazz Club waiting with arms wide open. Go to them – go to them and feel their warm embrace.
