Eid
July 18-20
So the eating never stops. Now it is time to break the fast and to enjoy some of the offers available. There are options all over the city, but our pick this month is a classic – Market by Jean-Georges at the W. On the second day of Eid, July 19 predicted, the brunch will run from noon-4pm with two options – one for QR295, the other for QR410. Have a look at our listings for a full schedule. Market by Jean-Georges, W Doha Hotel & Residences, West Bay (4453 5135). Don’t fancy eating? Have a look in the shops as there may still be some sales on and take a well-earned break for this public holiday.

Terminator Genisys
From July 16
Yes, there’s a new Terminator movie out, and Arnie is back! This time he fights the T-1000 again and another version of his own model, the T-800. This is all with the purpose of saving Sarah Connor’s life as her son John is the only one who can stop Judgment Day. The only problem this time, however, is that John Connor has been captured by the machines and sent back in time to destroy any hope of salvation – by killing his own mother. This promises to be a good watch.
