Weekend Primer: Charity and Chow
By: Talk Bangkok
Charity:

Start your Sunday morning off right by heading over to Lumphini Park for the Rainbow Run. The Punky Runners are teaming up with the Rainbow Room to raise money in support of those with special needs throughout Thailand. Make sure you register first, and by doing so you can help raise awareness and help empower children with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other challenges!

Chow:

Last week America had their weekend in the sun, this time it's France's turn! Head over to the French Alliance down in Sathorn to celebrate Bastille Day. Although the official celebration is on Sunday, this party will start Saturday night. All French celebrations must have food so expect lots of cheese and crepes as well!

After your morning run for a cause on Sunday, restore your energy by heading over to the Maduzi Hotel parking lot for Big Bite Bangkok. Local artisanal food producers will set up shop there for hungry and curious Bangkokians to sample their products. You can also donate to In Search of Sanuk, which will help less fortunate kids and their families in Bangkok.

If you really can't wait that long to get your grubby paws on some free food, then head over to Thong Lor for Apoteka's Grand Opening. Their new branch at Grass is opening with a bang with free food and an open bar from 7 pm to 9 pm.

Sports, Shopping, Music and More:

Perhaps the biggest event of the weekend will be the arrival of Manchester United to the Big Mango to face off against the Singha All Stars. This is the Red Devils first visit to Thailand in twelve years! The match adds even more intrigue as fans from the Land of Smiles can get their first glimpse of new manager David Moyes in action.

Saturday and Sunday will bring the return of Made by Legacy's Flea Market. After its success in December, local vintage craftsmen will bring their wares to Studio 61 for a very hip and trendy shopping space.

The Siam Society will host "The Classic and the Cool" presented by Tamnak Prathom Harp Center. They will be joined by 14-year-old Singaporean sensation Lee Yun Chai as well as Thailand's own Thaweewet "Paye" Srinarong on violin and Nattapon "Pey" Fuangaugsorn on the sax. The show will feature a classical harp repertoire and then fade into "cool" with music from George Gershwin, Astor Piazzolla, and David Brubeck, concluding with a medley from the ever-cool West Side Story.

Phatfunk is the city representative for Drum ‘n' Bass fanatics and will be hosting a boat party Saturday night, which will originate at the Sathorn Pier near Saphan Taksin BTS. This will be one of the more exciting ways to get your groove on this weekend.

There are plenty of other parties and events happening this weekend such as Neon Night at Bed Supperclub and Underground Circus at Glow. For all of the events going on this weekend, check out Talk Bangkok's Events page. Have a spectacular weekend!
