on

Business Lunch at Level Seven and Namu
W Dubai has two business lunch offers to add some flavour to your working week. Both Namu and Level Seven are doing a two course menu for AED79, or three courses for AED129. Better yet, they guarantee that you’ll be in and out within 40 minutes.
When: 12pm-3.30pm, Saturday to Thursday
Where: W Dubai, Al Habtoor City, +971 44 366 666, www.wdubaialhabtoorcity.com

The Laughter Factory
Catch Justin Moorhouse, Ian Coppinger and Tom Stade at The Laughter Factory this month. The roaming comedy club is always popular, so make sure that you book your tickets early – those who are easily offended are probably better off staying at home.
When: 8pm, Wednesday, September 21 and 9pm, Thursday, September 22
Where: McGettigan’s JLT (Wednesday), Grand Millennium TECOM (Thursday), www.platinumlist.net

Audible Inaudible
Although now living and working in California, this is Iraqi artist Hayv Kahraman’s fourth solo show in Dubai. Her new body of work is delivered on linen, wood and paper through which, the accompanying notes say, “she narrates the violence of sound and the sonic trauma connected to her past – and that of many others – as an Iraqi immigrant.”
When: Until October 22
Where: The Third Line Gallery, Al Quoz, www.thethirdline.com

Arab Fashion Week Fair
This will act as a foretaste for Arab Fashion Week in October and is the second of two that are held annually. Along with global luxury brands, this event will feature live shows and demonstrations while creating a bridge between the international fashion scene and the Arabic Market.
When: September 22-25
Where: Dubai World Trade Centre, www.dwtc.com

Armani Deli
We’ve never really held that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That’ll be lunch; everything in life hinges on a decent lunch. But the Armani Deli is at least giving us reason to take pause. Take a table on the terrace and sample some of the dishes on their revamped morning menu, like their take on the classic eggs benedict or the new selection of pastries.
Where: Armani Hotel Dubai, Burj Khalifa, Downtown
Contact: +9714 453 5468

Art:Interrupted at Al Serkal Avenue
Visit A4 Space in Al Serkal Avenue for a film about two artists creating India’s first contemporary art biennale in 2012. The film transports you to India with street noises, singing, dramatic images and shots of the impressive installation.
When: 7pm, Thursday September 22
Where: A4 Space, Al Serkal Avenue, www.alserkalavenue.ae/en/venue/a4-space.php

Cooking Classes
Want to perfect pastry? Craft better casseroles? ICCA offers accredited amateur programs in culinary techniques that can lead to a qualification, or one-off “lifestyle classes” such as menu planning. You can learn how to make artisan pizza, a fancy icing swan or even tackle gelato. They also have celebrity chef training if that’s your aim.
Where: International Centre for Culinary Arts, Knowledge Village
When: Weekly classes, +9714 457 8811

Cinema – Snowden (15)
After W and his aborted involvement with MLK, director Oliver Stone tackles his latest biopic: the fully spelled-out Snowden. It charts the fate of the CIA operative who exposed the depth of America’s domestic surveillance programme. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was given the job of playing the man now exiled in Russia who many think is a traitor who should be in prison.
