Dubai summer survival for men

Wife and kids away? Don't despair

The Knowledge

Dining in
It’s one of the great seasonal Dubai clichés: as mums and kids head to cooler climes for the summer, husbands and dads are left to fend for themselves. For those who have forgotten how to assemble a meal, DinnerTime is here to help with its brand of self-assembly food parcels for the culinarily challenged. Sign up for weekly deliveries of fresh ingredients to your doorstep, accompanied by recipes for four dinners. Each week’s food box includes one red meat dish, one chicken dish, one fish dish and one vegetarian, pasta or soup dish, and each recipe takes an estimated 30 minutes
to prepare.
Dhs300. Boxes delivered every Sunday. Delivery across Dubai,

Dining out
Marriott hotels across Dubai are helping the city’s menfolk enjoy the next few months with a raft of great offers. At Courtyard by Marriott Dubai Green Community, the boys can enjoy unlimited ribs and two bottles of hops every day between 7pm and 10pm at Pine Grill, for just Dhs135. At the same hotel, visit The Bar on Saturdays from 8pm onwards and get your first two hop beverages free, plus a 20 percent discount on selected food and drinks.

Over at The Observatory in the Marina’s Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites, get a steak, two sides, sauces and a bottle of red or white grape for Dhs299, and a voucher for 20 percent off all treatments at the hotel’s Saray Spa.

Going to be watching the football this summer? Head to American themed sports bar Champions at the JW Marriott Hotel Dubai in Deira, where you can watch the big games on screens all around the venue, or play a game of pool. Platters of snacks are Dhs69, while buckets of six bottles of hops are Dhs135.
For details on all these and more offers for men, visit or call 04 607 7977
