Watch the Premier League
From August 8
It’s back on and what would we do without it? Major European leagues kick off their respective new seasons, with the Premier League starting on August 8. Don’t miss the first match of the season: Manchester United versus Tottenham Hotspur, 2.45pm kick off. Will Louis Van Gaal’s team manage to get to winning ways, or will Poch’s men Kane them? And could this be the season that Liverpool win the league? (Rhetorical question). Best spot to watch it? Rose and Thistle. Horizon Manor Hotel, Jabr bin Mohamed Street (4445 5444).

Quiz night
August 10
The quiz night is back at Champions with teams of up to six people attempting to claim a first prize of QR3,000. The quiz starts at 7.30pm sharp and ends at 9.30pm. Don’t miss out on a good evening and the chance to win a great prize.
Champions, Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel, West Bay (4419 6100).

Bollywood brunch

In celebration of Indian national day, there will be a Bollywood themed brunch at The Grill. So get your dancing shoes at the ready and enjoy some great Indian dishes.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation
From August 6
If you don’t accept the mission to go and watch this film at the cinema, you must be a right Jim Phelps. This time, the Impossible Missions Force has to battle a rogue organisation known as the Syndicate. Ethan Hunt, (Tom Cruise), Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), William Brandt (Jeremy Renner) and Isla (Rebecca Ferguson) have to attempt the most daring and improbable missions to defeat the “anti-IMF.” Novo Cinema, The Pearl (4418 5736).

Chocoholic’s delight
Missing that essential ingredient in your life: chocolate? If that’s the case, don’t forget that Chac’Late can cater for all your cocoa needs while you look at the impressive amphitheatre. With a massive array of waffles and hot chocolate selections, this is a good place to treat yourself. Oh… did we forget to mention that there’s a chocolate fountain, too?
