Join Tawlet to celebrate the beauty of Lebanese cuisine through an illustrated poster exhibition by Maya Zankoul around the theme, at one of the most authentic Lebanese restaurants: Tawlet Souk el Tayeb. [Link]
The exhibition will be held at Tawlet Souk el Tayeb in Corniche El Nahr, Mar Mikhael – Beirut. For further information, you can call +9611448129.
Good luck to our talented friend Maya and I will be doing my best to attend the exhibition.
For those of you who haven’t seen Maya’s work yet, you can check out her blog [Here] and the Zankoulizer [Here]
Here’s how the above highlighted section of the new Nahr El-Mot interchange should have been built and below is how it turned out.
From where I took this picture, there are 6 legitimate lanes all going into a one lane road before reaching the highway. You can get stuck there for hours if the highway is closed, it’s a freakin’ nightmare!
1964: Electricte du Liban was founded. Its aim was to provide electricity to all Lebanese regions.
1975-1990: Civil war, no electricity for days, sometimes weeks. Power cuts all the time.
Since 1990, it has been progressing in the following way:
- Ma fi Kahraba. Bassita kelloun 6 hours bil nhar!
- Yel3an ekht el Kahraba. 12 hours bil nhar mich ma7moule. Sar Badda Moteur.
- Hay dawoule hay! El Kahraba toul mela la wara. Sar meklef el moteur, khaleena na3mil ichtirak arkhass.
- Ma32oul nedfa3 150$ lal moteur kel chaher? mich 7ale hay bass chou badna na3mil.
- Yel3an ekht el moteur. 4 hours 2at3a bil nhar. Mich ma32oul. 3a chou 3am nedfa3lo?
All in all, owners of generators are the new EDL now and are charging us whatever they want and cutting down the electricity anytime they want. Added to that, you can’t argue with the generator dude because he can easily tell u to f*** off.
Well I went there with Chahe to check it on Sunday morning but we had no clue how to get in Marina so we thought we improvise and tell them we are going in for a coffee.
Security opened the gate once we got near and we told them we’re going to the restaurant to have a coffee, but they refused to let us in saying we need to be members, and asked us to turn and leave. I got almost inside the Marina and found a spot to turn and leave but thought I take a tour at first and check out the boats. We stayed inside for half an hour and then left without anyone telling us anything and the security at the entrance did not even remember us.
PS: Dexter’s boat was no longer there, seems like he did his thing and left.
Seems like serving burger lovers at Classic Burger Joint Jal el Dib is also part of the events they cover. Of course they allow themselves to put cones all over the street even though there’s a park meter sign. Valet authority supersedes Park Meters.
You can check out their website [Here] even though there’s no use cause it’s under construction and probably gonna stay that way but they need cause they’re international.
Spotted at the Dora branch. They started removing the signs.
The bank was blacklisted by the US a couple of months ago for allegedly taking part in a money laundering scheme, then sold to Societe Generale.
