Well the weekend is upon us once again and you know what that means….paaaaareeeeee!!! We here at Urbanite strive to bring you the best weekend plans so that you can enjoy that hard-earned money. From DJs to muchomo, from bars to poetry, here is your plot alert!!
Calvin Da Entertainer celebrates 10 years of his on-air career at UBC with an event dubbed “TAKE OVER PARTY” set to take place on Saturday July 20th at Freedom City. Expect performances from Uganda’s top artistes and loads of other fun activities at only 20k. Gates open at 2pm so be there as one of Uganda’s veteran TV show hosts celebrates a decade of entertainment.
Still on Saturday, we have the long awaited Twitter Barbecue Party taking place at Swahili Gardens, Najjera from 3pm. Come and interact live with “tweeps” whose tweets you screenshot and post on your WhatsApp status all day everyday. Entrance is only 10k and it comes with a beer and some muchomo so don’t be left out.
We’re not done yet with Saturday as the latest edition of Sato Eazie Chill takes place at Terranga along Bandali Rise in Bugolobi opposite Alchemist. Put on your best tee and your most comfy shorts as Terranga offers you the best deals on drinks and meat, great mixes by DJs Kojja and Kiggs, board games and so much more. Entrance is free so bring the whole gang with you and take it easy at Terranga.
No we ain’t done with Saturday yet as Makindye Country Club hosts an inaugural Flea Market from 10am to 3pm. Entrance is 2k for buyers and 25k for vendors. Come ready to buy, sell or barter and walk away with lots of cheap stuff that you might need from clothes to appliances. Vendors will be allowed in as early as 7am to set up their stalls and lay out their merchandise. It’ll be a nice family day out so bring the kids. Oh, and of course snacks and drinks will be available for sale to all. Come one, come all.
Finally at the end of the day, the party won’t stop because Guvnor brings you Saturday Night Fever. Dance the night away with mixes by DJs Dash, Brian, Baby Love, and MC Mozeso. Show starts at 9pm and entrance is just 30k.
Relax and wind down the weekend of long hard partying with a great poetry and music show titled “Tales Of A Traveller” on Sunday 21st July at The Lazy Pony in Kabalagala as you are serenaded by the tunes and prose of Belgian performer Martin. His poetic and musical texts are both playful and serious, so come delve deep into the mind of a well travelled artiste. In a jazzy/bluesy/traditional/Latino and French-Dutch chanson atmosphere, he brings his own compositions & poetry, but also arranged covers of known and unknown artists. Showtime’s at 6pm and entrance is free. Oh did I mention Sunday is Belgium’s National Day?
After that, there’s more paare for y’all as Nexus Lounge presents Backyard Chill Sunday featuring the talented John Blaq and a host of DJs like Jerry, Crim, Hot, Babaz and Mush MC. Entrance is free though a table goes for 200k and comes with a Black Label and 5 Tuskers.
Well, there you have it. No reason for you to sit around at home complaining about how you have nothing to do. Enjoy your weekend, Urbanites.
