The weekend is being cut short by Friday’s dry night and the Cairo Gossip events calendar isn’t as plump with parties as it usually is – sad. Add to that the fact that many of Cairo’s bars and clubs are taking it easy this weekend ahead of Halloween, and you have an uncharacteristically quiet weekend in Cairo ahead – double sad. But someone once tried to convince me that quality matters more than quantity (the crazy fool) and the events the city do have in store are rather enticing.
DJ NII @ O BAR
It’s been an eventful few weeks for Fairmont Nile City – this week alone has seen a host of special events at Saigon – and it’s only going to get better, with the Student DJ battles taking place on the hotel’s rooftop. Until then, DJ Nii, has been keeping things ticking along and returns to O Bar.
FRIDAY JAZZ BRUNCH @ FAIRMONT NILE CITY
(Friday)This weekend, Fairmont Nile City debuts its new Friday Jazz Brunch at Napa Grill where diners can and shall feast like kings and queens on a buffet full of all kinds of yummy, good-for-the-tummy food – because brunch is mankind’s greatest achievement.
DINA EL WEDIDI @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
It’s a big weekend for sultry songstress, Dina El Wedidi, who this weekend launches a new album. What better way, then, to mark the occasion with a gig at a half-empty Cairo Jazz Club!
REGGANG @ VENT
Cover bands are plentiful on Cairo’s music scene – don;t judge, we’ve all got bills to pay – and now its time for the late Bob Marley to roll around in his grave as Reggang pay tribute with a special performance at VENT.
BBQ BRUNCH @ CAIRO MARRIOTT HOTEL
(Friday & Saturday)
Yes, more brunch! And the only thing better than one brunch is two brunches at Cairo Marriott Hotel‘s Garden Promenade Cafe, where a buffet that has more than just barbequed meats to offer as well as live music and kids’ activities.
There’s much more to see and do around Cairo this weekend – check out the CG events calendar for more.
