In Case You Missed the Party: Week In Review July 27th-31st

This week marked the end of July, the month I consider to be the most action packed of the summer season. The month wrapped up beautifully with events such as one from Lebanon’s Non-Commercial music pioneer, another from Lebanon’s number one Rock band as well other events including international acts visiting our venues. In case you missed out on an event below are full stories along with photos for you to enjoy!

Yolanda Be Cool was in Beirut for the weekend and made a stop at Pier 7 to perform a live DJ set which included their smash remix of “No Speak Americano”. The club was full of people enjoying the last busy weekend of the summer. The Pier 7 acrobats made their usual appearance. The resident Dancers performed a marvelous fully costumed tribute to Michael Jackson and special surprise “characters” showed up to the party. By characters I mean life size animals (see photos to know exactly what I mean). Pier 7 one of my favorite clubs in Lebanon as always did not disappoint!

Wet Wet Wet at Rikky’z July 31st: I have got to hand it to Rikky’z for their genius Mountain Beach Party idea. The Sunday up in the mountains was a perfect way to escape the city heat without missing out on the city fun. The pool party up in Faqra came fully equipped with beautiful babes in bathing suits, free giveaways from top companies such as the main sponsor Ice-Watch, and fully OPEN food and drinks all day. DJ’s Mac & Serge supplied the party with tunes.
