Broke but healthy? Low on funds but well stocked on squash? DXB Cucumber Day is your reward and it’s back next month.
Nope, don’t @ us – the humble cucumber is part of the same plant family as squashes and melons. However you can’t swap a squash for a beverage and that’s why we’re championing the green salad essential.
On Wednesday, 10th October, take a cucumber to any of more than 50 bars in the UAE and do just that – exchange it for a juniper and tonic beverage.
This year the annual celebration has ‘cuked’ up an easy way for you to maximise your cucumber collection – a free Cucumber Bus will drive you and your cucumbers round the participating outlets. Two ‘hop-on, hop-off’ routes cover the Marina and JLT, and the Downtown area, everywhere from Barasti to Tribeca and Bleu Blanc to Soho Garden is accepting cucumber currency.
Here’s a full list of everywhere taking part in the second Cucumber Day to sprout up in Dubai: www.wcd.mrh.ae
Wednesday, 10th October. DXB Cucumber Day’s Cucumber Bus is free and will circulate from 6.30pm-11pm.
