It is weekend time again and once again we are giving you an overview of things to do this weekend. Compared to last weekend there is less things on this one, but still some good ones.
Yesterday we visited the Sharjah Food Festival, one of the Outlets present there was Abu Dhabi based Restaurant Kebabz and Bunz. Optically they did look great and I thought lets give them a try. I was curious on the taste of their Doner, but it seems they had logistically difficulties to have the skewer there in time. After an hour waiting we finally went for Burgers instead. We went for a K&B Burger and a Mushroom and Swiss Burger. Both in a combination with Fries and drinks for only 5 AED more.
The Burger and Fries arrived shortly in a pretty cool Paper Box with the Burger vertically in it next to the Fries. Both Burgers looked really good. The Fries were very tasty and crispy, most times the Restaurants just don’t get fries right… The K&B Burger had a very tasty patty , a well flavored sauce and just tasted very yummy. The Mushroom and Swiss was as well a very well crafted one. Seems we will have to visit the Branch in Abu Dhabi in the future to get a fix for a good Burger.

We had visited the Sharjah Food Festival at Al Majaz Waterfront today. Below are a few impressions. Overall a pretty cool event. You can still visit it to April 4 in case you have not been there yet!
Mark this day in your calender Folks. On March 9th, 2015, all McDonald’s restaurants in the UAE will be giving away 1,000 free Egg McMuffins on a first come- first serve basis, from 6:00am to 10:00am. 1,000 Egg McMuffins will be given away at every store!
McDonald’s UAE is participating together with more than 6000 other Restaurants in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Last year we had been very surprised when we hit a petrol station on National Breakfast Day and got each an Egg McMuffin handed over. This time we will make sure to pass by as well.
National Breakfast Day is held this year the third year already with growing success.
The UAE government has decided that Eid Al Adha holidays for private sector employees will be from Friday October 3, 2014 to Sunday October 5, a 3 day break.
This was announced in a circular issued by Saqr Ghobash, Minister of Labour, pursuant to the provisions of Article 74 of Federal Law No. 8 of 1980 concerning the regulation of labour relations, as amended, which states that the Eid Al Adha holidays for the private sector will be for three days.
For the Public Sectoe the holidays will start from Friday, October 3, 2014, until Monday, October 6, 2014. That is a four-day holiday break for Eod. All Federal employees will return to work on Tuesday, October 7.
Time to plan something for the days off…
The new Environmental Performance Index has been released and the UAE is on 25th position. Quite interesting to see specially in comparison to some other countries. The UAE hits the best score in the Middle East here.

What else has changed? Probably not too much as many cinemas still have to be renamed. In addition to a fresh and young looking atmosphere that will soon roll out in existing Grand Cinemas outlets in the region, Novo Cinemas will allow cinema-goers the ability to customize their night out through a clearly differentiated choice of seating and theater options. NOVO COOL, NOVO EDGE and NOVO SKY represent the variety of seating positions within the theater, from standard seats to superior back-row seats to iconic balcony views (where available). Meanwhile, three theater classes define the type of experience to be had. NOVO 3D brings the exhilarating experience of 3D visuals to the viewer’s world, while NOVO IMAX represents the world’s leading immerse cinema experience. However the most lavish way to enjoy those big summer blockbusters would be through NOVO 7-STAR, which offers unprecedented levels of comfort and personalized service guaranteed to make every viewing experience unique and memorable.
