We’ll put our hands up and admit it: August is testing us. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve lived in Dubai, you somehow manage to conveniently forget how unforgiveable the weather can be. But that doesn’t mean we’re ready to throw in the towel. No siree! Not when there is still so much going on in this awesome city of ours. Here’s how you can keep yourselves inspired this weekend…



Getting in the mood with Crabby Hour at Crab Tavern 



If you missed out on Sunset Wednesday, Crab Tavern’s newly launched ladies night where the fairer sex received 50 per cent of food and unlimited signature drinks when dining, then be sure to wind up your week at the latest after work hotspot, Crab Tavern. Ideally located for all those media moguls on the ninth floor of Media One, between the hours of 5pm and 8pm you can enjoy what has been billed as the “the happiest of happy hours”, when selected beverages are priced at a very thirst-quenching Dhs25. There’s also an extensive menu with, yes you guessed it, a whole lot of crustaceans, plus salads, burgers and fish dishes. Let’s be honest, the food is not going to win any awards, but when the aim of your evening is to say goodbye to a stressful week and get the weekend started with a bang, then you’ve come to the right spot.

The spice is right at Noodle House 


If summer to you means that staying in is the new going out, then settle in with the latest series of Masterchef Australia (we’re obsessed) and order from Noodle House’s menu which features 28 brand new items. We can’t get enough of the Singaporean Curry Laksa – a steaming noodle dish packed with flavour-filled chicken, succulent prawns and a tofu fish ball. Veteran fans of the homegrown brand needn’t worry: favourites like wasabi prawns and Thai green curry are still there in all their fragrant glory.

The new menu is available for home delivery, take away and dine in. For more information visit thenoodlehouse.com
