Happy Thursday! We have your weekend sorted.
One pizza for one dirham
No, we are not joking. To celebrate their brand new pizza menu, Ricetta, the Italian restaurant at Four Points by Sheraton Bur Dubai will be serving take-away pizzas for Dh1 only on Friday, September 21, to the first hundred walk-ins. So there's no rush to get that Wi-Fi working to order online, you just have to run really fast, or, maybe drive. If you don’t get there fast enough, all is not lost – you can still get 50 per cent off on their take-away pizzas the whole day.
