Things to do today, The Knowledge
Sunday 19

Play pool: Satwa’s Seven Nights Billiards has 18 tables and a bar that serves soft drinks and snacks – it’s a hidden gem for pool fans.
Open daily 11.30am-3am. Al Meena Residence building, Mina Road, near Capitol Hotel, Satwa (04 345 8899).

Grab a business lunch: This sleek Souk Al Bahar venue has had a makeover: stop by for a tasty lunch to sample the menu.
From Dhs75 for one course. 12.30pm-4pm. Margaux Restaurant & Lounge, Souk Al Bahar (04 439 7555).

Father’s Day steak: Head to the Bonnington and tuck into a Father’s Day special of T-bone steak and chips with a pint of your choice. Guaranteed to keep the old man happy.
Dhs109. 6pm-10pm. McGettigan’s, Bonnington Hotel, Jumeirah Lakes Towers (04 356 0560).

Check out a new jazz night: Take a musical journey through the blues movement as Donovan Rossouw and Neisha, along with the Afif Trio, play music from the likes of Buddy Guy, BB King, Santana and more.
Free; call for table reservations. From 8pm. West 14th, Oceana Beach Club, Palm Jumeirah (04 447 7601).

Spoil your dad silly on Father’s Day: Unlike mums, who enjoy three Mother’s Day dates every year (the UK, the US and the UAE one), dear old dad only gets to be nurtured for one day – and that’s today. So make a point of bringing him a cuppa in bed, giving him the TV remote, and then taking him out for a slap-up supper. Ping Pong at The Dubai Mall is offering a bargain Father’s Day dinner: dads (and mums) can stuff themselves silly for Dhs80, and kids under 13 eat for free. That’s bound to put a smile on the old man’s face – especially if he’s paying.
Prices vary, Open Sun-Wed 10am-10pm; Thu-Sat 10am-midnight. Ping Pong, The Dubai Mall, www.pingpongdimsum.ae (04 339 9088).
