Kick off the night with some hearty eats straight from the kitchen of MEATliquor – where you’ll be served best-selling burgers like the Dead Hippie and Bacon Cheeseburger, as well as other savoury bites and MEATliquor cocktails. After dinner, French DJ GRAMOPHILES continues the party in serving up fresh Latin house music, pumped with ethnic vibrancy and catchy rhythms that will have you jiving all night long. We don’t know about you, but we’ll be dancing to the beat of our stomachs tomorrow.

Tulipmania at Gardens By The Bay


Yes, it’s back! For everyone with a soft spot for the beautiful famed tulips of the Netherlands (and who doesn’t, really), these multi-coloured buds are back for the fourth year to grace the Garden Dome. Last year saw a fairy tale-themed affair to delight even the oldest of hearts. This time, they’re set against a stuffing Persian-style backdrop, as a tribute to their lesser-known origins in the ancient Ottoman Empire – also known as present-day Turkey. Feel free to simply wander around in awe of the 40 or so tulip varieties in full bloom, or join a free guided ASK Me! tour to learn about botanical facts and anecdotes regarding the floral display. And the part we’re all most excited about – temperatures are kept to a cooling 23 degrees Celsius within the Dome, which you’ll definitely appreciate when admiring the vibrant view.

Date: 8 April to 22 May 2016
Time: 9am – 9pm
Venue: Flower Dome, Gardens By The Bay
Admission: $8 (child), $12 (adult), $8 (senior citizen)
*Local senior citizens get 50% off ticket price

Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day 2016

Free Cone Day at 313 Somerset

Definitely one of the happiest days of the year, Free Cone Day is back and happening at a Scoop Shop near you. While we’re a little bummed that the number of B&J locations have been reduced to just 313@Somerset, Vivo City, and Dempsey, to make up for it, FCDSg will be offering free toppings for the first time ever, to go with all your free scoops. It’s eight full hours of queuing, so come with entertainment!

Date: 12 April 2016
Time: 12pm – 8pm
Venue: 313@Somerset, Vivo City, and Dempsey
