Nahr el Mot bridge is no longer in the middle of the highway as they closed down the right side of the highway and kept it for those visiting City Mall or internal roads. Let’s hope they do something about the other side of the bridge which takes you back to Jounieh and is a complete mess.
Grand Theft Auto V is not yet available at Virgin Megastores and Sony World but I am getting it tonight from a shop in Jounieh (NetsDVD) who always gets games before others and sometimes even before their official release (Like the Last Call of Duty).
It will be priced at 90$ in Lebanon and my guy is selling it for 95$ for those who can’t wait a few days.

Beirut – O1ne paint up
16 artists came from all around the world to interpret the theme of Music on the 2,500 sqm wall (Karski (Art Director), Nase, SWK, Binho, Zedz, Telmo, Miel, Nash, Mr. Wany, Mr. Dheo, SATONE, Tasso, Roids, Bonzaï, Koan and Treze).
For those interested in knowing more about the O1NE, I posted about it back in July when the wall was still empty.

Sydney’s is a luxurious lounge located at the last floor of Le Vendome Hotel in Beirut and offering a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean sea. I went there a few times a long while ago during my AUB years but I learned it reopened a week ago after a brief renovation period.
As you can see from the pictures, the view is amazing and the chairs look very comfortable, a perfect setting for a brunch, late lunch, early dinner or sunset drinks. Sydney’s open 24/7 so you could even head there for few cocktails before your party kicks off.
As far as the food is concerned, I remember very well that their club sandwich was one of the best in town and it’s even better now. I loved the new kind of bread used and the presentation. Moreover, their selection of appetizers (Try the Spicy Tuna) and salads are really good and their steaks are prime Australian Wagyu steaks (expensive though as they start at 50$).
Price-wise, Sydney’s is located in one of Beirut’s most luxurious hotels and is definitely not a place I would visit frequently to eat, but it’s a must-try if you want to have few cocktails late in the afternoon and enjoy a beautiful sunset.

Despite all that, and as stated previously, what we need now is a proper law that allows and recognizes civil marriages, not a loophole in an archaic French Law back from the 1930s.
