Plan your weekend in 60 seconds
A cheesy diet
The keto diet has caught on like wildfire and understandably so. When before have we heard of a diet that allows cheese and meat? So, head to this popular joint where you can tuck into their new keto menu specials, such as the very berry salad, special Kingston chicken skewers and most intriguingly the keto burger comprising two pork loin fillets with a lamb patty and cheddar cheese. What are you waiting for?
Time 5 pm to 1 am
At Raasta, Rohan Plaza, Khar.
Kicking off the good times
The World Cup is nearing its last legs, and while some people prefer watching it at home, others would rather gather a group of friends and head to a pub. If you belong to the latter group, make your way to a venue in the suburbs that is showing the France vs Uruguay quarter final match on a big screen. Cheer for Kylian M’bappe or Luiz Suares, or both if you’re a neutral.
On 7 pm
At The Stables, Peninsula Redpine Hotel, Marol, Andheri East.
Cost Rs 400 to Rs 800

Breaking down a musical wall
The Wall is a seminal album by legendary psychedelic rockers Pink Floyd, which includes such gems as Mother, Goodbye Blue Sky and, possibly the most famous of them all, Another Brick in the Wall. Head to a SoBo venue where they will host a vinyl listening session for the album.
Time 5 pm
At The Quarter, Royal Opera House, Girgaum.
What better way to celebrate World Chocolate Day, which falls on July 7 every year, than learning how to make chocolate and then devouring what you have whipped up?
