This Weekend in Lahore: Stand-Up and Standing Up

Considering that this is the last weekend for the month of October, you would assume that I would turn this into a Halloween themed list. You’d be wrong; I refuse to be predictable. Additionally, there are no official Halloween parties this weekend in Lahore. If you want to dress up as your favorite cat or superhero you’re going to have to source an invite to a house party or something, can’t help you there. However, if you’re looking for some wholesome activities to keep you busy this weekend in Lahore, I’m your girl. Check out the last C+G October to-do list and get to-doing:
