Second day back at work and a great piece of news, the rumours of the week long break for Eid were true, it's been announced today that Sunday the 19th August through Thursday 23rd will be off as a public holiday. Oman Observer jumped the gun yesterday, but here we are - an entire week off! Sweet, thanks Oman. le fin.
Now some of you may have wondered along to the cheese and wine night (unlimited cheese and wine for RO 9 every Thursday evening) at the new Crowne Plaza OCEC, and now starting this Friday afternoon, they boys and girls at the Crowne are launching their brunch, and it looks really good.
RO 29 (including the taxes) for free flow of adult sodas (or for the non-drinkers, RO 20) between 2 & 5pm AND it includes access to the pool for a dip if you wish as well.
The theme of the brunch is the big chill, and I'm told it will have a strong seafood section in addition to all the usual standard fare, and a DJ will be providing the soundtrack to the afternoon. The RO 29 option also includes sparkling wine for those who like their wines to fizz.
You can make a reservation for the brunch (which seems is going to be quite popular this weekend as every other person I ask says they're planning on going) by calling them on +968 9065 4364 or emailing them on email@example.com le fin.
