It’s the weekend! And if you’re reading this, you’re probably fantasising at your desk or commute. Don’t hunker down in your bunker yet, there’s some fun things left to do in this city.

1 | Drink and piss green

Time for yet another round of pretending to be Irish in the blistering streets of Singapore! Aside from the usual spectacle of live performances and live drunken debauchery, a ton (actually 8.888 tonnes) of free draughts are calling your name from the deep vats of Guinness. Just text your name and NRIC to 8151 5555, and bring the verification text to a participating bar for your drink. Prepare yourself well because come March 19, you’ll need to prove your liver worthiness at the massive street festival where all the true Irish are to be found: Boat Quay and Circular Road.

2 | Get cultured at Sing Jazz

As we write this, Ella Fitzgerald is playing in the background while we’re smoking a nice Cuban. Just kidding, it’s jammies time and the only thing playing is the sound of the whirring fan. But make your weekend better, and school your eardrums on some cool, cool music.  That’s right, the Singapore International Jazz Festival is back, up to this coming Sunday and if you still haven’t got your tickets, do your noggin  a favour and get a pair now. Then sit back and listen to acts like Level 42 and our own jazz-inflected musicians like weish and The Good Life Project featuring Vandetta.

For tickets, visit Sing Jazz.

3 | If all else fails drink whisky

With the Balvenie. At the Changi Airport. Whilst flying off to escape. Lucky you. 11 April the Balvenie’s latest release, a 21 year old Madeira Cask Scotch is available for purchase at the duty-free along with photo opportunities with a specially flown in Morgan V6 Roadster at the airport’s Terminal 1. Oh yeah, and tons more opportunities to sample while you hobnob with The Balvenie’s craftsmen. Sweet-ish and spicy down to its last note, it’s a nice way to spend those last few moments before you’re hurtled through space in a hunk of flying metal. Again, lucky you.

Available at Changi Airport Terminal 1, Central Piazza.
