This Weekend In Lahore: Indoor Games and Old Flames
The weather’s settled down a bit recently, to my utmost pleasure. With the sky a bit clearer and the grass looking greener, I’m all about making this weekend in Lahore a stellar one. If you want your plans to be as unforgettable as mine read up on this C+G to-do list:
HAPPY HOUR: FAREWELL EDITION
Awesamosas moving to a brand new and currently undisclosed location. In the meantime, head on over to say farewell to their OG outlet for one last hurrah. The event will be MC’d by Natasha Noorani. Good food, good vibes, good music. Sounds like a good Friday.
P.S. Read our ode to Awesamosas for all of the feels.
BOOKISH: THE BOOK THIEF
Due to popular demand, The British Council Pakistan has turned their summer-only bookclub into a year-round siesta for young book lovers. This weekend members will be reading Markus Zusak’s iconic novel, ‘The Book Thief’, a historical novel set in Germany during the Second World War.
P.S. Walk-ins aren’t allowed so don’t forget to register
SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE ERA OF #metoo
The viral MeToo hashtag caused an unprecedented wave of survivors to come forward to name and shame several powerful men. In Pakistan, the impact of the movement has been slightly limited. The talk aims to educate and empower, as well as to allow for less indiscriminate accusations. Definitely worth attending.
P.S. Men should attend this one too!
WORLD CLEANUP DAY
World Cleanup Day (also known as WCD) is a global social action program aimed at combating the global solid waste problem, including the problem of marine debris. Hashoo Group is undertaking this public awareness initiative so be sure to attend. It’s about time we make Pakistan Clean and Green.
P.S. Play your part.
INDOOR CRICKET TOURNAMENT
Maidan is a sports-tech startup redefining communal sports; whether it be Cricket, Football or even Gulli danda. This weekend they’re bringing an exciting tapeball Indoor Cricket Tournament to town. 9 teams will battle it out over the course of 2 days. Winner takes all.
P.S. Winner takes all.
This weekend in Lahore is going to be a fast-paced one. With C+G on your side, you won’t miss a step. Onwards and upwards.
