I am sure every Lebanese who traveled to Ayia Napa has been to Senior Frog’s. It’s the best place to kick off the party there as it’s always crowded and there’s always live entertainment. Well guess what? Senior Frog’s is coming to Concrete 1994 in Sin el Fil, Beirut for two nights on November 21 and 22.
Regular entrance tickets are at 45$ and 55$ (65$ at the door) and VIP tickets are at 100$.
You can check out more info and book tickets [Here].

The Beirut Marathon Association has opened two extra days for registration for an exceptionally awesome lady, Sarah el Khatib. Sarah was at TEDxLAU this year and delivered an inspiring talk on her fight with cancer, before she died two weeks later. I will be at the Beirut Marathon this year just like every year, and I will be running for Sarah.
For those who missed the deadline and still want to register, here’s a [link] to do so.
For those who missed Sarah’s talk, check it out:
March and Lucien Bou Rjeily’s play on censorship will be showing tonight at 6pm at the Bathish Auditorium, American University of Beirut. The play is about censorship and freedom of speech in Lebanon and has only been approved a week ago after a long struggle with the censorship bureau.

ABAAD and Esposa Beirut are asking female participants in the Beirut International Marathon to participate and run the 10KM fun run in a wedding dress in order to raise awareness on early and forced marriages in Lebanon and the Middle East and North Africa region. That’s a pretty cool and fun idea. I just hope women will be able to find cheap wedding dresses.
You can find more information [Here].
The car-free day in Sodeco and Abdel Wahab that was cancelled previously due to security concerns will take place on October 19 from 10 am till 7 pm.

Beirut’s wine festival (Vinifest) kicked off yesterday and will go on till Saturday 11th of October 2014 from 6:30 pm till 11:30 pm at the Beirut Hippodrome. Last year’s edition attracted over 60 exhibitors and 23,000 visitors and this year promises to be even better, despite the bad weather. If you like wine and wish to sample some of the best wines in Lebanon, Vinifest is where you should be going.
I will be there on Saturday. See you all and cheers!
I think she deserves the win as she was the most beautiful among all contestants. However, she doesn’t look like Georgina Rizk like some people are suggesting online. Sally will represent Lebanon at the Miss World 2014 contest in London on December 14th and at Miss Universe contest in Doral on January 25th.
Before Sally was announced a winner, Miss Lebanon 2013 Karen Ghrawi slipped and fell on stage but she wasn’t hurt in the process.
Here’s what the new Miss Lebanon had to say about her projects and the importance of social media after she won, which is pretty much the same cliché we hear every year. Speaking of social media, LBCI should consider adding the contestants’ social media accounts somewhere because they are always impossible to find.
The event took place today at the Charles Helou station and I was there to enjoy it. Bassam Zahalan was crowded winner, while Kifah Hilal and Mohammad Baalkabki finished second and third respectively. I took a lot of pictures and small videos which I will share tomorrow.
