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.

Where else other than Lebanon do you get to see some guy pulling a stunt on a busy intersection and saluting a police officer?

bernardhage

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!

The Internal Security Forces rewarding seat-belt users

noel isf

The minute I saw this photos on twitter I knew it was some kind of a media stunt by the Lebanese Internal Security Forces. And the first thing that came to my mind was that they should have been working to ease the traffic congestion over the past few days instead of taking photos with Santa. But now that I saw the video I think it was a nice move.

In a country where people honk at you at a red light, I personally would have loved to get rewarded by the ISF for wearing the seatbelt!

Beirut airport has food products that expired 20 years ago!

abou faour

Can you imagine how does a food item that has expired in 1995 look like now?! I’m seriously interested to know!

“The minute you walk into the warehouses, you feel like you entered a dump,” Abu Faour said after inspecting the airport along with Transport Minister Ghazi Zeaiter.

The health minister revealed that some of food products still in storage had expired nearly 20 years ago.

“Dates on some foods showed they had expired in 1995,” he said.

Speedy and Amigo’s previous ad was one of the coolest ads in 2012, and I think it’s great to see touch maintaining their originality in this new one.
