Five things to do this weekend (Nov 20-22)
This weekend is one for the foodies!
We are approaching the end of 2020, which means the festive season is upon us.
But before you head off to do your Christmas shopping, there are a few things you can do still! If you’re a foodie, you’re in for a treat as this weekend promises many new food places to check out.
Here are five things to do this weekend:
1. Chase Pokémon around Singapore
Gotta catch ‘em all! In a collaboration between Pokémon GO and the Singapore Tourism Board, there are now 300 news PokéStops and Gyms at various lifestyle and tourist attractions all over the island, such as Changi, East Coast, Chinatown, Joo Chiat, Katong, Kampong Glam, Mandai and Kranji.
This initiative is part of the ongoing SingapoRediscovers campaign, in a bid to promote local tourism during the current COVID-19 pandemic. You can find out more here.
2. Try the new Coffee Milk Tea ice-cream at McDonald’s
McDonald’s is introducing a new Coffee Milk Tea ice-cream series that will hit its stores islandwide by this weekend. The new ice-cream flavour comes in cones ($1), sundaes ($2) and McFlurries ($3).
On top of that, the Double Samurai Beef Burger and Ninja Chicken Burger ($6.20 each) are returning to the fast-food restaurant’s menu for a limited time, along with the Seaweed Shaker Fries.
3. Have a drink at a new rooftop bar
If you are looking to spend a chill night with drinks marvelling at Singapore’s skyline, you’re in luck! Cé La Vi recently opened a Sky Lounge atop the iconic Marina Bay Sands.
The menu includes Boneless Korean Fried Chicken Wings ($18++) and Singapore Cereal Prawns with Salted Egg ($24++) as well as Cé La Vi’s signature cocktails such as the Happy Afternoon with Vodka, lychee, and coconut (S$17++).
You can reserve a table online at email@example.com or by calling +65 6508 2188. Check out the full menu here.
4. Get drunk on cocktails
For those looking for a wider variety of drinks, the Singapore Cocktail Festival (SCGF) promises just that.
Held slightly differently this year due to COVID-19, there will be a SCGF City Takeover where you can get cocktail promotions at some of the hottest bars across the island.
Other drinks on sale include the Garden City by Native and 71 Herbs by Gibson, with prices starting from $18. More information can be found here.
5. Dine with Dinosaurs
There is a newly-opened Jurassic World Cafe at ION Sky, which offers a scenic view of the Singapore skyline.
The cafe is decorated in a jungle theme with dinosaurs all around. Food options include Nasi Lemak ($20), Volcano Curry ($23), Jurassic World Burger ($28) and the Christmas Meaty Platter ($25). There are also desserts like the Fossil Excavation Cake (S$16) and drinks like the Mosasaurus Soda ($8).
