Mid-month fun run…

We’re already two weeks into October, which means we’re waist-deep into a season that only shows signs of getting even busier. No complaints, of course, and the occasional desire to have a night in, where one does little else except become one with the couch and eat dry cereal straight from the box by the handful. If that doesn’t sound like your scene, here’s a list of all the uber-fun things you can do to keep your weeknights hip and happening.

Here are 6 things you can do in Abu Dhabi this week.
