The Snow in Faraya Today

faraya

The cold weather that we are experiencing this weekend is bringing much needed snow to our mountains and Faraya seems to have got a good amount so far.

The cold front is supposed to last over the next week I think and more snow is expected, so the slopes may probably open in the next couple of weekends.

Below is a photo showing how the slopes in Faraya looked like on the same day of the previous year (January 3rd 2014), so 2015 looks definitely promising.

If I were Zaven I would have probably already committed suicide for all the “chou hasseit” jokes that have been made so far!

Roadster Diner Opening Soon in Zaitunay Bay

IMG_8101.JPG

I just stumbled upon this photo by Roadster diner on Facebook announcing that they’re opening soon in Zaitunay Bay.

With Classic Burger Joint and some coffee shops already operating there, I believe it’s pretty good to see Roadster opening as well which helps making Zaitunay Bay more accessible to average people, especially that it was labeled as a spot for the rich people when it was first launched.

Update:

As per Beirutista, P.F. Chang’s is also coming to Zaitunay Bay.

Bernard’s predictions are becoming a yearly traditions and the guy is in my opinion funnier than most of the people you see on comedy shows nowadays.

Make sure to check his blog here. (I wish he posts more often)

03_tr091224_beirut

It’s true it’s almost new year but most of my friends and myself have absolutely no idea yet what are we doing on Wednesday night. But this is of course a déjà vu since we always end up coming up with a last minute plan to gather at somebody’s home. So for people like us who’ve got no plans yet for new year’s eve but don’t like to spend it home or at their friends, this post is for you with 15 ideas from Lebtivity.com.

You can of course find much more parties at Lebtivity’s dedicated page for NYE, but the above 15 were my favorites.

This is also an opportunity to tell you that starting next week I’ll be teaming up with the good people at Lebtivity to let you know about the most interesting events happening in Lebanon on a weekly basis. So stay tuned!
