As the week draws to a close so begins another weekend full of cultural events in the city, and we’ve got the list to keep you entertained.

FRIDAY

FOOD | Savor An English Delicacy, Belgian Style

What if we told you that there is more than one way to enjoy the traditional fish & chips? Rather than wait for your next trip to England, head to Bia Mara and order this specialty with a Belgian beer in hand!
