Spring Clean: Get rid of your old stuff in the most arty way known to Abu Dhabi denizens. Pack them in a box, label it with your name and drop it off at Café Arabia for their spring flea market. It’ll save you feeling bad about throwing away what could be the next man’s treasured trinket.

Hunt for eggs: If you want to make Easter Sunday a real celebration, head down to the Park Rotana where Ginger is throwing an all day dining party. There’ll be a huge spread and an Easter egg hunt for the kiddies. It’s Dhs185 per person, and the little-ones get a 50 percent discount if they’re under 12 years old.
From noon-4pm at Ginger, Park Rotana (02 657 3333).

Celebrate Easter: Celebrate Easter with a special Easter-Sunday brunch at Sofra bld. They’re putting on a lavish buffet spread with house beverages and a glass of bubbly upon arrival priced at Dhs265 per person. From 12.30-4pm at Sofra bld, Shangri-La Hotel (02 509 8555).
