Default Boozeio

Anyone have any idea what the craic is with regards to a dry night over Eid Al Fitr?

Is there a dry night??? And if so which night.

I can never remember and I'm thinking of booking a hotel for a staycation but obviously don't want to book one over a dry night...... or possibly I do if I can get somewhere nice for cheap and have a bit of gathering....

Anyone?

Cheers

Book one of the nice hotels in RAK - They don't seem to ever have dry night/days etc. Some of my mates have been down there during Ramadan and having liquid fun on the beach

Sorry to be that person (as usual), but this is a painfully incorrect usage of "craic". It's right up there with "St. Patty's day" on the grating on an Irish ear scale.

The night before Eid isnt dry, so all you need to work out is which day Eid is

Yes the moon, must be the explanation for the increase in Al Ain throwbacks on the increase, starting to look like the Appalachians round here, just missing the duelling Banjo`s in the background

Thanks all for the info.

I have gone 'a bit Mission' on this and can't quite decide what to do..... Do I look to somewhere local or jump on a plane somewhere.....? That's the question!

Probably leaning toward the staycation at the mo.....

I'd expect flights are pricey now, especially to short haul destinations.

Cove Rotana is always good, pool villa, lock in, take 150ish beers and some vodka. Job done. Order the breakfast sandwich in the morning and the spag bol for dinner.

Take some friends though....

Indeed. We did that a few Eids ago. Not a bad call.

Either that or I may get a room in Dubai and recreate a female version of DXBTODOH's story off the political thread......

Mate, you don't want to be the only dick at a lesbian orgy. You're not welcome.

Just looking at flights and they're not bad at all on the likes of Fly Dubai...

Bangkok - 2200
Kathmandu - 1300

or somewhere totally random

Djibouti - 2,000

As long as I was to leave on the Fri and come back on the Monday the prices are reasonable.

Bangkok's about 6-7 hours IIRC. On flyDubai? Nah. There'll be miles better places closer.

How far's Kathmandu or Djibouti?
What about Nairobi or Georgia or one of the 'Stans? or Tanzania?
