The best things to do in town this week, from a Halloween-themed flower making workshop, to a series of unmissable dinners.
With half a stumble and half a dance, we find ourselves at the end of October. The past month has been turbulent, to put it lightly. On the upside, the weather has taken a turn for the better, as heavy rains subside to leave what is now best described as an enjoyably uplifting breeze — the kind of weather that beckons you to be out and about.
If you happen to be looking for reasons to do just that, we’ve rounded up a list of the best events taking place this week, for you to mark on your calendars. Ranging from a series of mouthwatering dinner experiences, to Halloween parties, art exhibitions and more, scroll to see your plans for the week!
#NoOneHungry Charity Dinner: Neo Indian Meets Thai
WINE & DINE — Chef Deepanker “DK” Khosla of Haoma restaurant, and Chef Phanuphon “Black” Bulsuwan of Blackitch in Chiang Mai – a restaurant that has definitely got tongues wagging on the local gourmet scene – come together on Wednesday, to create a spectacular ‘Neo Indian Meets Thai’ menu. The collaborative dinner, which will be held at Haoma, will see a donation of 20 meals to Haoma’s #NOONEHUNGRY cause, for every single ticket sold.
