A great opportunity for William Nasr (AKA Junior) and other rappers to show off their talents. I will update you as soon as I have more details on where this event is taking place and when.
After closing down its branch on Charles Malek’s Avenue, Bulgari opened its first boutique in Beirut around two weeks ago. The newly open boutique is on 140 El Moutrane Street Downtown Beirut and sells Bulgari watches, fragances, eyewear, jewelry and sunglasses.
I once visited Bulgari’s boutique in Achrafieh to get a handbag for my gf but I changed my mind after I was told it costed some 1300$.

Miss Universe 2012 is taking place on the 19th of December at 8pm at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino and Miss Lebanon Rina Chibani seems to be one of the hot favorites to win the title. The Preliminaries took place two days ago and from what I’ve read on several websites and blogs, Rina should easily make it into the last 15 (The 16th Semi-Finalist will be selected by “Fan Vote”).
I have to say she’s the most beautiful Miss Lebanon we’ve had in years, but she doesn’t look well prepared and is very hesitant in her interviews. I hope she’s preparing herself well for the final round because she’s truly gorgeous.
Here are links to some of the articles I found on Miss Universe 2012 talking about Rina Chibani and/or showing pictures of her.
I never liked the guy and never will, but I am sure many of you will be excited to know Ziad is having two concerts on December 20th an 21st in Beirut. Tickets will be available starting this Monday at Boueiry Press Kaslik and Maarouf Saed center in Saida. Tickets prices are respectively 40$ 50$ and 60$. You can check out more info [Here].
EM Chill is organizing a 100% Lebanese alcohol night on November 28th, to support our local brands while listening to local tunes all night. All drinks will be priced at 4,000 LL only.
I think they should offer discounts on food items as well, because if there’s Arak at only 4000 Lebanese Liras the drink, people will get wasted before the party kicks in!

Jennifer Lopez surprised her fans today by holding the Lebanese flag at her Dubai Concert in celebration of Lebanon’s Independence day. I don’t know why she would do such a thing but it’s pretty cool of her, at least for the Lebanese watching the show.
Roland Saade, Faysal El Khalil, Dory Hitti, Edward Maalouf, Mary El Aam, Maha El Shaer and Mickey Chibli participated in this year’s edition of the Beirut Marathon in order to raise money for the victims of the bombing that shook Achrafieh few weeks back, killing General Wissam Al Hassan, Ahmad Sahyouni and Georgette Sarkissian.

They were able to collected an impressive 240,000$, which will be donated to reviving Achrafieh and helping the families.
A great initiative from all 7 runners and the Beirut Marathon association.
