New Year Gigs

About 2 to 3 weeks before New Year's Eve, Dubai's entertainment industry usualy flood the space with what it desperately tries to make you believe, is the 'gig of the year'. Nothing and no one is spared: TV, radio, newspapers, web, outdoor ... everywhere you look or turn, its a 'NYE special' in your face.

It seems with 2008's not-so-festive closing notes (brothers and sisters being massacred right next door, companies getting bankrupt...etc); many NYE offers didn't seem to have had enough time to simmer in the thinking department.

Luckily for us, we can be mildly amused with more of what could be comic relief, than your typically inane, intrusive and disruptive pieces of promotional communications.

Here is one sample for you:

  • They really thought the 2009 thing was cute? LOL!

    Did you check the gulfnews special on new year parties (before they got canceled)? Man they start at 2.5K or something per person.

    So you'd pay 5000 for you and the Mrs (in case you couldn't do the math :P ). They'd probably charge you 4850 but the valet parking would cost you another 300 :P
