7 fun things to do in UAE this weekend: Free coffee, museums and shopping!
Published on October 1, 2020 at 01.01
Slime, kinetic sand, ASMR sound, magnetic pulls and of course, art (because what is a museum without art!), will allow you to experience life to the fullest this weekend. adidas Originals is bigging-up the new ZX 2K BOOST silhouettes with the opening of the Oddly ZXatisfying Museum pop up in D3 tomorrow. Become fully integrated into the world of ZXIENCE where every touch point activates different senses. The Oddly ZXatisfying Museum will be open on Friday and Saturday from 2pm till 10pm at Building 6, Ground Floor, Dubai Design District.
It’s International Coffee Day!
To celebrate this wonderful drink a couple of places are marking the occasion with offers today. D3 based café One Life Kitchen & Café is giving away a free coffee to everyone! Simply walk in, follow One Life’s Instagram account, post a story and, voila, order your free coffee. Or, UAE chain Café Nero is selling single shots of espresso, Americano, cappuccino and caffe latte for Dh10 and 20 per cent of profits from these drinks is being donated to the UNHCR to support the people of Lebanon.

Live your dreams
Did you know a genuinely surprising and immersive Hollywood experience is right on our doorstep? It may be common knowledge to some, but stepping foot in Mall of The Emirates’ virtual reality suite Dreamscape is unlike any theme park we have ever encountered. Perhaps it was a symptom of being let down by early 2000s VR installations, which really did little more than make you dizzy and give you a headache, but expectations were not high. From minute one, however, where you put on your Ghostbusters-inspired sensors, backpack and headset and set foot in either the Alien Zoo, a truly breathtaking deep blue sea whale rescue adventure or into an Indiana Jones-esque action movie, you will not believe your eyes and senses. Simply astounding; a must-try for everyone from 10 years old up.
Rajat Chauhan live in Dubai
After an exciting start last weekend with their fully sold out show, ‘Viu Comedy Box Office’ is all set to bring yet another ultimate live comedy night to Dubai featuring the very popular Rajat Chauhan. The show is on Friday from 9.30pm onwards at Joker Street night club, Orchid Vue Hotel, Bur Dubai. Cover charges are Dh100 per head on platinumlist.net
Bounty Beets at Le Meridien Mina Seyahi is serving up a great new ladies’ night: ‘Sips in the City’ tonight. For Dh99 enjoy five drinks and unlimited small bites including tacos, grilled tuna, chicken satay & avo toast or spend Dh149 and receive five drinks, dinner and dessert. You can also make a donation to the Al Jalila Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness and receive a pink cocktail.
Mean Girls Day
If you had to choose the most quotable movies of all time, Mean Girls would be up there. The Lindsay Lohan starrer gave us so many memorable moments. This year on October 3 at 8pm, Sugargram is celebrating Mean Girls Day (aka the day Aaron Samuels asked Cady Heron what day it was) with a Netflix party and a limited edition Burn Book box with 25 itty bitty cupcakes. Whether you are team “fetch” or “it’s not going to happen,” the limited edition “Burn Book” with all the famous quotes from the movie splashed across the front of the box is the perfect gift!
