According to a source of mine Alshaya have purchased the franchise rights to open The Cheesecake Factory throughout the Middle East including Turkey, Russia and Beirut. The Cheesecake Factory is expected to open at the end of the year in Kuwait but I don’t have information on when the Beirut branch is planning to launch. Shake Shack on the other hand is opening this July.
I just got confirmation that Shake Shack will be opening in Lebanon this July! I’m trying to find out exactly where but it’s pretty cool how both Fatburger and Shake Shack will be opening up nearly at the same time.
The popular US burger chain Fatburger is going to open up in Lebanon in around 5 months time. Their first branch will be located at the soon to open City Center mall with a second branch to open at a later stage in Debayeh. Their burgers and fries kick ass and since the burger scene in Lebanon is fairly disappointing with the only decent burger place being Brgr Co, I think Fatburger will end up doing pretty well.
Supposedly what happened was the guy was coming out of the bathroom and he accidentally stepped on a woman’s foot. Instead of apologizing he kissed her (I’m guessing some kind of air blown kiss kinda thing) and the woman’s husband got upset and the incident happened.

Robe Lowe from the funniest show on TV right now Parks & Recreation is coming to Beirut according to his tweet. I have no idea what he’s doing in Lebanon but I am going to be there this weekend and I NEED TO FUCKING MEET HIM!
As some might have noticed, Chahe hasn’t been posting for few weeks now. When asked why, he claimed he has no time, which is not really convincing, so i thought to myself and came out with those top 10 reasons:
1- He is very shy and blushes when he posts or comments.
2- He has a girlfriend now and he had to choose between her or the blog.
3- He is running for elections under a different name in the United States.
4- He is spending his time playing poker online.
5- He is too lazy to recharge his internet connection.
6- He joined another blog.
7- He does not like me or Mark anymore.
8- He misses Nency and wishes she could come back and post again.
9- He robbed a bank and is in Brazil now.
10- He forgot the blog’s URL and never used google before.
If you’ve never experienced it you should. I passed by Lina’s yesterday with my girlfriends (for the only reason that one of them is pregnant and wanted an open area coffee shop close by Jounieh) and it was a very funny experience.
