CairoScene Eid Guide 2016

Between all the nighttime raves and the parties on the beaches of Sahel, are we even going to find time to eat ka7k?

Staff Writer

This year, Eid has demanded its rightful attention by showing up right at the beginning of July, which means the sun will be stalking your back as you make your way to the countless things happening around –and outside – the city... and there's a hell of a lot. Raves, parties, grand openings, wicked lineups – it's all happening this Eid, and we've got all the deets. You can thank us with lots of ka7k.
