New Year’s Lunch and Dinner Buffet
Samba and Al Tanoor, OMR 15.500
12 noon to 3 p.m.

Well, RO 98 for the NYE bash, I think that's the most expensive event of the lot, and I'm sure it'll be excellent.


Next up, Zouk club are the venue for a House night arranged by The Experiment for New Years Eve:

Countdown 2012

Featuring Matthew Charles, who has had residencies at both Trilogy and 360 in Dubai, as well as Cafe Mambo in Ibiza, and regular slots at Pacha. So he's not a no-body, and will be worth seeing, even though he is, unfortunately, Scottish. We can't all be perfect.

Tickets are on sale now at Zouk, and cost RO 25 per person, or RO 40 for a couple. Drinks are extra, but you get one with the cost of your ticket, and also a free drink at midnight.


Now, tickets are already sold out, but the Royal Opera House are putting on a Gala performance by the Mariinsky Ballet troupe. It starts at 8pm and lasts a little under 3 hours, so the cultured among you that are going can still go out and hit a NYE party :)

More coming soon! Have a great weekend.

le fin.
