Default Weekend plans?

What are you all doing this weekend? Come five today I imagine there's a stampede to the favourite watering holes for a few pints or drinks?

Just ringing round to see who's going to be at my watering hole by 3-4pm. Had enough for this week.

It's the other half's birthday today so probably going out tomorrow night, don't know where to though. Might give the new Jebel Ali Club a try.

Wish it was last weekend. He surprised me with a meal and drinks on Bateaux Dubai. I'm a very lucky lady

Takeaway, beer and box set binge tonight. Take the kids to the pool tomorrow (literally not the euphemism), park or play centre on Saturday. Rock and roll.

Last weekend was good. Oktoberfest at the Intercontinental in Doha, lotsa beer, lotsa food, lotsa people, lotsa fun. Stayed at the Intercon overnight so a nice room and great breakfast the next day. Good weekend by Doha standards. This weekend will be just lazy and quiet but will likely involve tv, red wine, sushi. Likely a few other bits n bobs as well

Had to do a lot of driving yesterday, over 4 hours of it and most of it was the sh**ty kind of bumper to bumper on SZR at 5pm no less (whats the bloody use of a 5 lane road if its nothing but a crawl for more than half of its length ffs) so NOT going out tonight at all is just fine by me
probably help the commander in chief cook some chinese and then dehydrate myself enough to comma out for 10-11 hours of much needed sleep

Oktoberfest is still on this weekend. Tickets are 265 QAR. But what do you get for it? The food included and drinks separate? Or drinks tickets included?

Why bother asking? You won't pay 265 anyway.

Had a wonderful chinglish the other night. Double MSG.

I'm having salad tonight. If I remember to eat something. Last of the food in the fridge. But I'm supposed to go for drinks at a nasty sports bar after work today and quite often I don't eat anything afterwards.

I do miss me some proper MSG there's a couple local Chinese places staffed by actual Chinese but given my track record of getting food poisoning at local restaurants in Doha I'm too afraid to darken their doors.

That's just the entrance and the food, all you can eat buffet and very nice it was. Drinks extra, usual pricey rate who cares. I think it's best as a shared event, we were a crew of maybe 10. Plenty of possibilities though even on your lonesome.

My bff (best filipina friend) enjoyed it, and the night at the Intercon and made sure to thank me appropriately .

Yeah. That is a problem. I always went to Oktoberfest in DXB and elsewhere with a big group and was properly attired in my leather gear (yes I have a lederhosen). And got thrashingly drunk. There's someone I could probably drag into coming with me but just the two of us? Probably charging 50 QAR for the beer? And there won't be pork? The Dubai Oktoberfest was usually around 350-400 but you got a full buffet with lots of glorious pork and a bunch of drinks tickets for full steins of the piss of the day.

I invented a word....hmmm....don't know why it popped into my head. But it works quite well, doesn't it? Next stop - Oxford English Dictionary?
