Hopefully none of you got blown away after the scary T10 we had to deal with! Never fear though – we’re still here to bring you the coolest events for the upcoming weekend. It looks like another busy one so let’s hope rain doesn’t stop play!
Designer sale madness!

If you’d rather shop from the comfort of your own home, we’ve just got word of an awesome Alaia sale at TheOutnet.com – with up to 60% off their signature shoes and accessories, that’s some serious online temptation!

Something a little bit different
Sick of shopping? Full from feasting? How about doing something a little bit different this weekend instead? Check out our top five bars and clubs for music – with everything from 60s nights to tangos to making jams of your own! You could also round up your friends for a wine tasting with a difference at Portraits Winery, explore the East-side of the Island with our quirky walking tour or head to Dialogue In The Dark, HK’s #1 attraction on TripAdvisor.com and an amazing immersive experience that shows you what it’s like to be blind. Choices, choices!
