We heard there’s a certain sporting event happening this weekend… we can’t even remember what it might be… but do not fear if you didn’t score tickets for that! There’s plenty of non-sporting fun happening all this week – here’s our round-up of Sassy’s top picks!
Make ’em laugh
Wouldn’t you like a night out where you can relax, kick back and have a laugh with your girlfriends… without being hit on by the entire male population of LKF?! Well we think this is a GREAT idea – Women Come First Comedy Nights, a stand-up comedy showcase where only girls are allowed to come! The very first one is this Wednesday, with five of HK’s funniest comics on the line-up, plus special prizes and girlie gifts on the night; then after 10pm, the dance-floor opens and it’s open to all. Perfect for putting a mid-week smile on your face and you never know… maybe it’ll encourage you to take to the stage and crack a few jokes come the next one!
When: 28 March, 8-10pm
Where: Likuid, 58-62 D’Aguilar Street, Central, Hong Kong
How much: $150 (includes one standard drink), www.womencomefirstcomedy.com for more info
Start getting ready for summer beach trips by hitting the opening party of new swimwear shop Itsie Bitsie! Think gorgeous beachwear, bikinis, swimsuits, kaftans, sarongs and much more, at great quality and reasonable prices, all designed by HK girl Cristina Wilkinson. There will also be nibbles and champers in the evening, and you can carry on the party with some special drinks deals at Coast afterwards!
When: 29 March, open all day from 9am

Turn it up
Cool live music? Awesome spring outfits? Well, we know where we’ll be heading this Saturday – Basement Jack at Jack Wills! It’s the final afternoon of their series of live music gigs in the fabulously British surroundings of the Jack Wills store in Causeway Bay; this week, it’s the turn of local indie band Hungry Ghosts to rock the house and there will be free goodie bags to the first 50 who come and sign up to Jack Wills’ mailing list!
When: 24 March, 2pm
Where: Basement, Jack Wills, Leighton Centre, 77 Leighton Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

The Hong Kong Flower Show 2012 is in town… and before you start yawning, trust us, it’s too stunning not to visit! Fabulous flowers will be taking over the whole of Victoria Park, with themed displays, floral sculptures that need to be seen to be believed, performances, exhibitions, workshops and the chance to buy some flowers, plants and gardening equipment to take home too (head there the last day for some real bargains). Photo opportunities galore, this is certain to make you feel that spring has finally sprung!

Where: Victoria Park, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
How much: $14
May the odds be ever in your favour
It’s official… HUNGER GAMES fever has swept Sassy HQ and we have been unable to think of anything else for days! Having become addicted to the books (finished in three days flat), it’s now time for the film – starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and obligatory hot guy, Liam Hemsworth. For the uninitiated, it’s a post-apocalyptic tale of teenagers killing other teenagers in the most vicious reality tv yet… there’s thrills, spills, kills, action, sci-fi, romance and probably a pretty dress or two. We can’t wait!!!
When: Out now
Where: All good cinemas!
P.S. Of course we haven’t forgotten… there’s the small matter of the Rugby Sevens this weekend! Check out our round-up of the hottest Sevens events in town, then read our guide of tips and tricks for surviving the Sevens Sassy-style!
