What’s on this weekend…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… is it? Whether you love or hate Valentine’s Day (that’s this weekend, girls!), this edition of the Weekender has got all your needs covered. Whether you’re dining out with your significant other or partying with your gal pals, there’s lots happening around town to get you in the mood…
Wednesday night at the races might possibly be one of our fave nights out, and yours too, if you’re a big equestrian (or just really into the beer tent!). The world’s most glamorous show jumping circuit hits the 852 – that’s the fourth edition of the Longines Masters of Hong Kong. Featuring the best show jumping riders and some fab entertainment, this is one weekend you definitely don’t want to miss. We’re already screaming #fomo.

Our generation’s most romantic film has got to be The Notebook, featuring the oh-so-lush Ryan Gosling. Rachel McAdams doesn’t do a bad job as lead character Allie in the film adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks book, either. If you’re in the mood for love, why not grab tickets to Hushup’s screening of The Notebook at the Love Sky Garden Cinema? There will be snacks and light bites delivered straight to your seat, courtesy of Deliveroo as you snuggle up to the boyf and get sucked in to probably the greatest love story of all time…

Where: Love Sky Garden Cinema, 9/F, Sky Garden, California Tower, Lan Kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong

Single and ready to mingle? Put your dancing shoes on and party the night away with your girlfriends at Scandalous Solas. It’s the best way to celebrate your gal pals, especially if you’re all unattached. And the best bit: get there before 10pm for a complimentary glass of bubbles; snag a bottle of wine or Prosecco at 50% off. Who said groovin’ on a school night wasn’t allowed?
When: Sunday, 14 February, 8pm onwards
Where: Solas, G/F, The Centrium, 60 Wyndham Street, Central, Hong Kong
How much: Free entry!
The Vagina Monologues is back for another round of funny and frank female-empowering entertainment.

Watch as the talented actors bring their stories to life through the magic of song and dance.
When: Friday, 12 February & Sunday, 14 February, 7.30pm
Where: Orange Peel, 38-44 D’Aguilar Street, Central, Hong Kong
How much: $250 at the door (including one drink), or grab your tickets online here.
We wondered what a traffic light party was for a hot minute until we realised it’s a fancy way of saying “dress code”! Bao Bei hosts its first Valentine’s Day party, with this super fun theme: traffic lights. Wear red and signal you’re taken (in a relationship), wear yellow and signal “it’s complicated” and wear green to let others know you’re available. Sounds like it’ll be a (road) rager!
When: Saturday, 13 February, 10pm-2am
Where: Bao Bei, 77 Wyndham Street, Central, Hong Kong
How much: Free entry for all ladies, and one free drinks for the first 100 ladies at the door, $100 entry fee for dudes.
