If things have gone out of your hands, and spending Eid in town has become a fact that you will have to live with, worry not, for we are bringing you some of the events that are taking place across Cairo during Eid. Here’s the deal:
Monday starts with a karaoke night at ROOM Art Space, while El Sawy Culturewheel hosts a day called Galacticon, where every avid comic fan is welcome to join a day full of endless activities, including cosplay, games and more.
Before getting excited about how wild you’re going to party this Monday night, we’d like to remind you that it’s going to be a dry night. You can get high on music instead at The Tap East, where DJ Kashouty takes to decks, at The Tap Maadi, or The Tap West that are hosting Shuffle Night. Alternatively, DJs Hossam Jamaica, Dozee, Tariq Siddiq and Ali are on the menu at 24K, on a night called Tech it Up.
