There’s only so many brunches you can bond over with friends. These fun activities make the perfect weekend outing to hit up with the gang.
For karaoke and a road trip, head to The Village English Pub at Ras Al Khaimah’s Al Hamra Beach Village and Residence – their sing-along night every Thursday gets the party started and offers free entry. From 8pm; throughout August. Call 07 206 7222.
Granny knows best because bingo, it turns out, is the coolest new game in town if the madness that Bongo’s Bingo Nights promises to be is anything to go by. This popular version of the numbers game is a UK export that’s an ironic take on the traditional format and spices things up with dance-offs, heckling, party breaks, costumed particpants and impromptu singalongs to old-school anthems. The prizes are equally bonkers: winners could be taking home inflatable swans and breakfast cereal. On August 10 at ON42, Media One Hotel. Tickets cost Dh100 at platinumlist.net; 21 years and above only.
