So it looks like we’ll be having less of those long weekends we enjoyed during the former administration. But what are you going to do about it?[firstpara]
Crying won’t help so let’s just enjoy the fun that the (good ‘ol 2-day) weekend has for us.
A World of Hamburgers at the Oakroom,
We’ve had Thai food fests, ice cream parties and wine tasting extravaganzas, but this one definitely takes the cake. From August 9 to 27, Oakroom (6th floor of Oakwood Premier Joy Nostalg center in Ortigas) is host to a whopping burger festival.
Executive Chef Jerome Cartailer’s serves 10 different burgers with different toppings, garnishes, and sauces that are all unique and exquisite. This isn’t your everyday average Big Mac folks.
Wine & Cheese Tasting at Wine Depot
If you’re feeling classy this weekend though, and burger seems a bit too vile, why not try out a few spirits and exotic dairy produce at Wine Depot at Alabang and Greenhills where Wine & Cheese Tasting happens on August 13, 8 PM.
On the menu are 16 awarded wines and 30 cheeses from France, Australia, Norway, and Spain. No news if Quez-o will be making an appearance.
Tickets are P500 each. Purchase your tickets now at any Wine Depot store or contact Joy, your Toast Club coordinator at email@example.com or call (02) 889-4889.
Tonight, August 13, start your sonic trip over at B-Side in Makati where Soul Fillet happens featuring DJs Rye and J-Hoon with performances by Marquiss and People's Future. The hip-hop party starts at 9 p.m.
If you’re looking for something heavy and aggressive, check out Obsidian Bar and Grill in Ortigas where Ink, Arcadia, AMS, Kon, The 21st Fever, Faintlight, Concrete Sam and Meghann will be rocking the house.
For a less noisy yet equally riotous night head on over to Route 196 where it’s Terno Night. Up Dharma Down and other Terno bands will be playing at 9 p.m.
Over in Makati, Barangay Tibay presents the Loonie EP Launch, which the famous battle rapper once discussed with us.

Saguijo will be a busy one on Saturday too and not just because of music. Redslim & Revolver Presents Silipan Rinigan Arts & Music Fest w/ Domino, Kuwago, Paranoid City, Pitik, Placid, Sruvaleh, Turbo Goth, and Twin Lobster, at 9 p.m. People can go there as early as 4 PM though to catch visual art exhibits and cool merchandise.

If you think The Fort is far from where you’re coming, over at Tomas Morato in Quezon City, Twisted Fridays will be happening at Eivissa Superclub. The party will be featuring music by DJ Marvin, DJ Jet, and DJ Markie Madness, with MC Bigdaddy, so you know it’s going to be rocking.
On Saturday, August 14, Saturday Night Live will be happening at Club Bureau
