Exciting activities to chase away your post-long weekend blues

The four-day weekend may have come to a close, but that doesn’t mean your present week has to be dull. In fact, come Thursday night, SG will be throwing a party with TAO Group’s new lounge, Avenue Singapore, at the Marina Bay Sands—‘cause why not? Below, you’ll also find other activities, shows and parties that’ll keep your spirits up, till the work week blows over.

FILM
Catch the first Iron Man flick that started them all at alfresco bar Bar Canary, hosted by Popcorn Pop-Up Cinema. If (somehow) you don’t recall, the movie follows billionaire industrialist and genius inventor Tony Stark, who gets kidnapped and forced to build a deadly weapon. Using his intelligence to build a high-tech suit to escape captivity instead, he then uses the suit to become the iconic superhero, Iron Man. Food and drinks will be available for purchase to accompany your cinematic experience. Aug 13

COMEDY
Celebrate Hossan Leong’s 50th with the man himself, at Hossan-AH 50! Love You Leong Time!. Expect to laugh alongside the Singapore Boy, as he sings, quick-changes, and make jokes about living in Singapore. It’ll be his final stand-up comedy, so it’s not one to be missed. Aug 14-31

FOOD/DRINK
Before Whisky Live 2019 happens this November, whisky enthusiasts should head to Sear on Thursday for their Whisky Dinner Affair, which will showcase their signature dishes paired with Bruichladdich’s Islay whiskies. Learn, and enjoy the pairing experience for just $98. Aug 15

PARTY
Trust us when we say we know how to throw a party. Stay “Wide Awake” with SG, and party at TAO’s latest lounge concept, Avenue Singapore. Five lucky pairs of SG Magazine readers will also get to enjoy $100 in food and drink vouchers each that evening. Aug 15

PERFORMANCE
Contemporary dance company P7:1SMA will be performing their piece, Belon, at the ArtScience Museum as part of the museum’s ArtScience Late performance series. A programme introduced to accompany their current exhibition, Floating Utopias, the dance will explore, occupy and engage the spaces present. Inflatables will also be used in the piece to discuss ambiguous, paradoxical, playful and disruptive states of in-between, as a metaphor for multiplicities. Aug 15

FESTIVAL
The fourth edition in a series of seasonal events held at Tanjong Pagar, Natsu Camp Fest organised by Japan Rail Cafe will transform Guoco Tower’s Urban Park into an exciting outdoor fiesta. Inspired by summer in Japan, be sure to turn up to watch performances that’ll feature both Singaporean and Japanese artistes in this blowout, among some tasty delectables and lush greenery. Aug 15

FESTIVAL
Returning after its 2018 edition, LumiNation will be held mid-August, and will explore the untold stories of Singapore’s history and heritage over a weekend of interesting programmes. Keep up with them on social media as their exciting line-up will be released soon. Aug 15-18

EXERCISE
Conducted by Angie Yeo, teacher and co-founder of Yoga+, the Cat Welfare Society’s inaugural Cats & Yoga event will be one for both cat lovers and singletons. Spend an evening meditating, while being surrounded by the furkids of cat cafe Neko no Niwa. Aug 16

EXERCISE
Here’s an exercise routine we can get with. Shake Farm will be hosting a Wine & Yoga class which will allow you to sip on organic wine while practicing yoga. In this class, experience wine tasting, and at the same time, achieve your balance and some zen. Aug 16

COMEDY
Instead of visiting Canvas to club, head there for a night of comedy—Fuzz Night #5. It’ll be hosted by the very hilarious Fakkah Fuzz, so you’re guaranteed to hurt your sides LOL-ing. Aug 16

PARTY
British-Norwegian producer Alan Walker will finally arrive in Singapore to bring his global hits such as “Faded” and “Alone”, to the much-lauded Marquee Singapore. While online tickets have been sold out, one can still head to the world-famous nightclub early to get tickets at the door. Aug 16

PARTY
Celebrate the arrival of the next full moon with a party at Intermission bar at The Projector. Max Planck will be spinning vinyls and dishing out jams from genres like old school 90s techno, electro and trance. Find treats at the bar, as well as cider, wine and beers. Entry is free. Aug 16

PARTY
Take it to Zouk’s dance floor once again on Friday night, as 100% Bulletproof presents Ghetto with Big M will see the behemoth nightclub transformed into a hardstyle space. DJ Ghetto and Big M will be bringing you hip hop hits, so you know it’ll be one hell of a party. Aug 16

PARTY
International, big name music producers Yeti Out and Nosaj Thing will be making appearances for the debut of No Standing Only Dancing, presented by event organisers Collective Minds and Kampong Boogie. As its name suggests, expect plenty of groovy beats that’ll have you dancing all-night long. Aug 16

PERFORMANCE
Arguably the most well-known dance company locally, the Singapore Dance Theatre will be putting up yet another dreamy and sophisticated dance performance, at Masterpiece in Motion 2019. The line-up includes the iconic American Balanchine piece Serenade, as well as the late Ballet dancer and choreographer Choo-San Goh’s Fives. Aug 16-17

THEATRE
Back by popular demand, mark your calendars for some mid-August cultural fun from local theatre group How Drama. The production of Fat Kids Are Harder To Kidnap X is mainly inspired by current affairs and trending topics, so this re-staging of their 10th anniversary show will definitely bring up issues such as the HDB rulings, Oxley saga, crispy rendang and more. While the cast will attempt to perform 31 plays within the hour, the audience will get to decide the order. Extra points for the interactive factor. Aug 16-18

MARKET
Meet up with your Carousell dealers—sans the embarrassing MRT gantry waiting game—at Carouselland 2019, to be held at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre. Themed “Small Dreams, Big Possibilities”, the virtual marketplace will once again take physical form and entice with an extensive list of over 300 vendors manning booths offering various knick-knacks in honour of everyday aspirations. Aug 16-18
