March in Abu Dhabi: music, literature, entertainment and beer!!!

We are already 10 days into the month of March and the fun is about to begin in Abu Dhabi. Whatever your age, sex or taste, I bet you will find the perfect event for you. There is definitely something for everyone!

Into music?
You can start by heading down to Yas Island (www.yasisland.ae) tomorrow night (March 11) for the Thirty Seconds to March concert. Rock is not really your thing? Well, you might want to try Yas Island on March 18 for the Stevie Wonder concert. But if you are more of a classic type of person, then you have to check out the many cultural events, scheduled from March 19 through April 4, at Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi Theatre and several other venues, as part of the Abu Dhabi Festival 2011 (www.abudhabifestival.ae/en).

Into literature?
I have five words for you: Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (www.adbookfair.com/cms). Six days. Over 150 events. Authors, poets, illustrators. Half a million titles on display. To check it out, just head over to the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre between March 15 and 20.  

Into entertainment?
You will have a blast at Big Boys Toys (www.bigboystoysuae.com/index.php). This exhibit, that will take place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, from March 16 through 19, is simply the ultimate playground for the young and the not-so-young boys. There is a little bit of everything to keep them entertained: high-end cars and custom vehicles, speed boats, jet boats and cruisers, the latest digital entertainment and mobile communications, unique up-market gadgets, fashion, lifestyle, adventure… And, if the women want to tag along, there is a ladies zone especially for them, plus a music lounge and an international village with flavors from around the world.

Into beer (that's right, beer in Abu Dhabi!)?
Join in the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day on March 17! This day, named after Saint Patrick, the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland and originated as a Catholic holiday, has gradually become more of a celebration of the Irish culture. So, get your green clothes out of the closet, proudly display your shamrock ( a three-leaved plant used by Saint Patrick to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian people) and get ready to dance and drink beer with the Irish and non-Irish in bars like PJ O’Reilly, Heroes, The Tavern, Coopers, Captains Arms and many others spread throughout the capital.
