HURRAY – we’ve survived another week, mamas! From a fab food-on-wheels brunch, to some of our favourite Valentine’s Day ideas, here are our top 5 things to do this weekend…
Food Truck Brunch & Food Truck Jam
We love a good weekend brunch… and to have one filled with TEN of our favourite food trucks sounds almost too good to be true. The launch edition of brunch on the grass, with (unlimited…) food and house beverages from Dubai’s finest food-on-wheels is the perfect way to spend a Saturday. And even if you don’t make it in time for brunch, you can still join in the Food Truck Jam for live music!

Where: Emirates Golf Club, Dubai, UAE
How much: AED 285 per person for Brunch, for more details, call +971 4 3801234
Longines Valentine’s Day Polo Cup
Celebrate V Day in a new, unique way, witnessing the Longines Valentine’s Day Polo Cup. Spend the day with loved ones, a lavish brunch, live music and plenty of activities for kiddos out on the polo field? Sounds good to us, mamas! Enjoy the action from the luxurious Palermo terrace, or from the polo field, and then (drop the littles off, and…) continue the celebration into the night at the Polo After Party!
When: Friday, 12 February, 1-4pm

Laugh a Little Louder
Head down to The Courtyard Playhouse for a night filled with plenty of laughter and lots of love. As preparation for the (arguably) most romantic day of the year, the stage is being filled with improvising wizards, ready to create entertainment out of scenes and songs based on audience suggestions (yup, that means us, mamas!) – you might just get to watch your own love story unfold!
