Daddy’s Day Out

In pre-celebration of Father’s Day (the actual day is June 21), dads get 25 percent off their bill when dining with three people or more. From QR245. So not only can you treat your dad, you can also be a cheap skate and save money too, making it an absolute win of an evening.

Jurassic World
From June 12
Watch the fourth Jurassic Park movie on the opening week, named Jurassic World. The franchise moves to a new era, with Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) taking on the principal role of Owen Grady. Jurassic World is a theme park that has been safe but numbers to the attraction are dwindling. So of course they make a genetically hybrid dinosaur to generate better figures. Surprise surprise… the creature escapes, and mayhem ensues.
Novo Cinema, Medina Centrale, The Pearl area (4418 4736).

Ramadan
June 17-July 17
The Holy Month starts on June 17 and, in true Doha fashion, once the sun sets there are a plethora of places to break the fast. Note that timings for shops and restaurants are likely to be different from this time. There are loads of places to choose for iftar and suhoor, but one of our picks is The St. Regis, with the Grand Ballroom being decked out as an elaborate souq, with food displays and cooking stations in the market.
Iftar is QR230, suhoor QR290, available daily. The St. Regis Doha, West Bay Lagoon (4446 0105).
