6 things to do in Dubai this week



Mediocre Comedy: Laughter is the Best Medicine
Raising money for the UAE MS Support Group, this comedy special features some of the best-known names in local and regional comedy get together for special back-to-back comedy nights. Dubai-based Indian stand-up Nitin Mirani and Palestinian-American Aron Kader will be delivering the laughs for a worthy cause. Tickets from AED 175.
When: November 22-23
Where: Vox Cinemas, City Centre Deira,

World Journey
Chefs from Milan, Tokyo and New York will take you on the latest ‘World Journey’ at Armani/Ristorante. Expect high-end dishes using the best seasonal produce including truffle, chestnuts, pumpkin and gold (yes, that’s not a typo). AED600 for food only with beverage packages available.
When: November 23-24
Where: Armani/Ristorante, Burj Khalifa,

Marco Carola
It might seem like the entire country is heading to Abu Dhabi for the Grand Prix, there is still some life in clubland Dubai. The best example is the return of the Underground Series at the VIP Room, which this weekend hosts Marco Carola. The Italian techno DJ is known for his residencies at Amnesia in Ibiza and for his marathon sets – sometimes lasting more than 10 hours. This one won’t be quite that long, we don’t think. AED250 on the door.
When: Thursday, November 24
Where: VIP Room, JW Marriott Marquis Hotel, +971 52 881 8888

Smudge Market
One of the better places to visit at this time of the year is The Farm in Al Barari and their Smudge Market should provide added impetus. The stalls include the likes of Tinc, Scents of Melbourne, 2Birds, Desert Roses, Keen Bags, Queen B and Made in the Desert.
When: November 24
Where: The Farm, Al Barari,

SunSets Festival
Some of you maybe old enough to remember when Dirty Vegas were the coolest kids on the block. If you’re not, it doesn’t matter. The British house duo know their onions and they’re the big draw at this three-day event that also includes Sister Bliss and Little Boots.
When: November 24-26
Where: Barasti, Westin Mina Siyahi,

Cinema – A Street Cat Named Bob (15)
A feel-good Brit movie out just in time for the festive season, this will warm more than hearts than critics’ pens, but there’s nothing wrong in some sentiment-tinged redemption. Based on James Bowen’s autobiography about living rough and busking on the streets of London, Luke Treadaway brings plenty of charm to the main role, although his struggles with addiction provide some darker moments. The cat is fantastic, too.
In cinemas from November 17
