The festive season is here and if you haven’t found a reason to step out for a long time due to the Covid-19 pandemic, now is probably the best time to consider it. As the city makes its way towards going back to normal, restaurants have opened up and are hosting diners like never before. It is not only the food but also the various venues in the city that are now hosting different kinds of gigs and comedy events.  


If you aren’t really comfortable attending a music or comedy gig just yet, there are also different kinds of art workshops and activities to register for and that is why there is something for almost everybody in the city.
