January has definitely taken a toll on all of us, and a fun weekend is what we need to recharge for February. This weekend is filled with parties, art exhibits, and standup comedy shows; you simply can’t spend it at home. Check our weekly guide and pick the event you find most interesting.

Paranoid Eyes at Room Art Space – Garden City

We just checked Pink Floyd’s touring schedule, and Egypt is, yet again, not on their list. So until they decide to perform in the land of pyramids, we still have the next best thing. Paranoid Eyes will be bringing The Dark Side to Room Art Space Garden City with their covers for some of Pink Floyd’s biggest hits. Join a crowd that shares the same love and passion you have for the band, and come sing along to your favourite songs.

Paint & Sip at Four Seasons First Nile Boat

Did you ask your girlfriend what she wanted to do this weekend, and she answered with “I don’t know”? Don’t fall into this trap, and plan something ahead. Nothing could beat a nice date on a boat by the Nile as you both sip some drinks and paint beautiful scenery. You don’t have to be Picasso, as all level skills are welcome. The art supplies you need are all provided at the venue. You and your hubby just need to make reservations.
