How to make the most of your Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Khaleej Times recommends...
Festive features for independence day

Don't miss the Bharat Sanskriti Yatra festival in association with Hindusthan Art & Music Society. There will be an award ceremony and a host of live performances tonight at Harland International School Dubai campus from 7pm onwards. It's the best classical show in town and it's free.

A spot of tikki fun down in JBR on Friday

The Cheeky Tiki Brunch at Trader Vic's at the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah turns the traditional experience on its head by offering a meal and atmosphere to remember. From 12:30pm to 4pm, enjoy the insane food including fresh shellfish and kick back to the beat of sensational Latin sounds from the band. Also, this Friday (August 16) post brunch, three famous Trader Vic's beverages will be available for just Dh79 as part of a festival.
Doctor calling

The doctor will see you now. Dressed in a white coat and prescribing jokes, Sunil Grover - aka Dr. Mashoor Gulati, is all set to take to the Dubai stage on August 17 at the Sheikh Rashid Hall, Dubai World Trade Centre. Dr Gulati's interactive comic act will also feature Gutthi, and Rinku Bhabhi from 7.30pm Tickets start from Dh75.

DJ Aqeel spins on
He's one of India's premier mixers and tonight DJ Aqeel will be performing in Dubai for the first time in a decade. Doesn't that sound fun? The 'Don and Daddy of Remixes' will be returning to the Emirate, spinning his tracks to a packed out crowd at Dubai World Trade Centre. If you like this renowned spinner's tracks, be there.

Indya Indulgence
Do you have the desire to celebrate? Chef Vineet Bhatia's new restaurant at Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa, Indya by Vineet, has a special three-course sharing menu and choice of four cocktails for Dhs399 per couple to mark Indian Independence Day tonight. This funky hangout is a perfect place to unwind and chill out.
Nancy and Saif
We're in the mood for a big old concert and, thankfully, we're in luck. Tonight is the night - two of the Arab world's biggest-selling artists, Nancy Ajram and Saif Nabeel, will be performing on stage at Dubai World Trade Centre. Putting on some of their top hits, the night is set to be one of the biggest events Dubai has ever seen taking place from 9pm. The Iraqi and Lebanese musicians will certainly raise the roof. Can't wait.
Justice League
Superheroes will be visiting Marina Mall Abu Dhabi every day until August 20. Featuring daily live shows with action-packed activities, craft workshops, virtual reality and gaming, DC Comic's famous characters Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman and The Flash will perform live at the mall with three shows held daily at 4.15pm, 6pm and 8pm. Kids can train alongside the caped crusaders as new recruits to instill the key values of truth, fairness, hope, discipline and teamwork.
