With the holy month of Ramadan just around the corner, we’re looking forward to taking our usual frantic pace down by a couple of notches. But before then it’s time to make the most of the last few events across the UAE and boy are there some good ones. Here’s our pick of the best this weekend.

When: 18 May- 20 May
Get ready to flex that credit card and really learn the meaning of shop ’till you drop in the countless number of sales going on across Dubai’s Malls. Retailers across the city will slash prices, knocking 30% to 90% off amazing items. Expect deals on electronics, jewellery, toys, homeware, fashion and much much more. Our advice? Wear your comfiest trainers and fuel your trip properly with a decent meal. If you’re in Mall of the Emirates, make sure to visit Brunswick Sports Bar ran by the duo behind Tom & Serg, or for those tackling Dubai Mall pay a visit to one of our all time faves Galeries Lafayette Le Gourmet.
When: 1 May – 25 May
Where: Dubai Opera
You’ve only got a week left to watch the massively popular and multi award-winning musical Mary Poppins. A perfect few hours where you’ll be transported back to your childhood with magical songs, dazzling choreography, and incredible effects, Mary Poppins is everything you could hope for. Start your night off right with a visit to one of the many restaurants near Dubai Opera. We love Toko Downtown for their awesome food and stunning interior and Thai restaurant Thiptara for drop-dropping views of the Burj Lake, Dubai Fountains, and Burj Khalifa.
Freshly Ground Sounds Mic Drop
When: 20 May
Where: A4 Space, Alserkal Avenue
Make sure to catch Freshly Ground Sounds’ annual season-closing gig before the summer. Taking place at A4 Space, Alserkal Avenue on Saturday 20th May from 4 pm to 7 pm, you can watch 16 different artists (some familiar faces and lots of fresh talent too) take to the stage. The great news is the gig is free to attend meaning you’ll have some spare change for a lovely meal and refreshing drink afterwards at nearby Lock Stock & Barrel.
Pro Extreme Bikes / Skate Competition
When: 19 May
Where: Abu Dhabi Corniche Skatepark
Think you know your grind from your loop out or your noseslide to your kickflip? Well, now you can put your BMX and skate knowledge to the test at the Pro Extreme Bike and Skate competition. This high energy, entertaining competition will be held at Abu Dhabi public Skatepark on the 19th of May and will attract professional Freestyle Bmxers and Skaters from all over the Middle East. Make sure to grab a bite to eat at nearby Burger Joint New York or Cabana Beach Bar & Grill beforehand. Afterall, it’s hungry work watching people exercise…
Remember you can use your ENTERTAINER nearby at all of these events so you can really make a day out of it! Have a great weekend everyone!
