The weekend is but a few hours away and I’m already in my shorts and flip-flops, to the disgust of everyone else in the office. But I don’t care about the shifty looks and comments – I’m going to Sahel this weekend and I’m seriously considering not coming back this time. Here are the best of the weekend’s events on the North Coast.
ROUGH CUT FT MONEIM @ 6IX DEGREES
Hacienda Bay’s 6IX Degrees kicks off the weekend with a special, duuurty night of old school r&b and hip-hop gets. The man in charge of the music is a certain Mr Moneim.

The Marassi branch of the Lemon Tree & Co. is going to be getting hit and steam this weekend, with Le Cabaret. Tito is on hand to provide the music.
CASSETTE FT AMR HOSNY @ THE LEMON TREE & CO.
