We've created a list of the best happenings we can take advantage of during the weekend.
We can all agree that long weekends are God’s gift to workaholics. Or to anyone, really. Luckily, this weekend’s going to be one whole day longer. So we can't just sit home, veg out, and binge watch TV for three consecutive days. We plan on enjoying the free extras, this time and so should you, so here are the EXTRAordinary things happening this weekend. From mini-getaways to the best happening on that sweet, sweet extra Saturday night. We got you covered.
You know you need to de-stress when that vein in your forehead decides to make an appearance every time your boss calls. But we've got a solution for your work-related anxiety: Yoga by the beach at one of the most beautiful locations in Egypt.
If you're got that indecisive friend in your squad, then you'll love this road trip. You won't have to choose one thing to do on this 10-day adventure. The trip includes camping, snorkeling, island hopping, sightseeing, felouka-riding, hiking, camel riding, speed boats, rock climbing (optional), air ballooning (optional), water activities (optional), boat to Giftun island, and a boat to Satayeh. Goodness.
Many alternative healers believe that crystals have properties that could potentially help offset a lot of the negative effects of modern life. Want some alternative healing and some yoga? Honestly, who wouldn't want that? Head over to 360 this weekend if you're interested in healing and rejuvenating your soul.
If you've ever wanted to kayak but never got the opportunity, now's your chance to live out your crazy kayak pipe dreams in the world's second longest river! Seriously though, this looks dope. And it's all inclusive, meaning you don't have to be super fit to participate, you can waddle in there in your sweatpants.
It's a sky full of stars at Wadi El Hitan and it's definitely worth the hype. Star gazing in the desert will never get old.
In need of some deep, meaningful rhymes while you work that tan in Sahel? Enjoy some good rhythm and poetry by Zap Tharwat at White Beach this weekend.
Escapism might be unhealthy but it definitely sounds appealing when it involves Wadi El Gemal, one of the most beautiful destinations Egypt has to offer.
Day: 20/07/17 - 23/07/17
We know this year's been all about Mask Off but we're urging you to put your mask on for this one of a kind boat masquerade party on the Nile.
Roll your problems away the legal way with CaiRollers this weekend. Their event takes place from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Cairo International Stadium.

Day: 21/07/17 - 23/07/17
Binge on Friends From College
The brand spanking new Netflix series sees a reunion of sorts when friends from college (as you may have guessed) find themselves all back again living in New York City. Drama, comedy, sex, and a star-studded cast. Need we say more?
Binge on GLOW: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling
Set in the 80s, the show follows the journey of an aspiring actor as she and others find themselves auditioning for what's to become the most glamorous wrestling show. The soundtrack alone, free of the usual cliches, is enough to dedicate the weekend to watching the show.
Saturday and Sunday
If want to (or need to) spend your Saturday or Sunday night at a club, we've got you covered:
