BEIRUT: Love football or loathe it, Euro 2012 is set to invade your life today. So, it’s time to strategize. For lovers, this means sussing out the spots with the best screens and the best atmospheres; for loathers, it’s all about minimizing the pain. While The Daily Star’s bias is definitely on the side of the football-philes in seeking out a selection of viewing venues, it hasn’t wholly forgotten those of an opposing disposition. As of Thursday evening, Hamra was definitely leading the central Beirut neighborhoods for European Championship zeal and preparedness.

On the balmy summer evenings ahead, Euro 2012 is set to be unmissable in this part of town – literally. Flags of the 16 competing nations adorn a multitude of bars and restaurants, and TV and projector screens have popped up on assorted corners, meaning that just by strolling the length of either M…

Mashrou' Leila performing at Baalbeck Festival 2012

Born of a nocturnal encounter at the American University of Beirut in 2008, Mashrou' Leila is a seven-member band that fuses the craft of a music workshop with the punch of stadium rock. With their distinct approach to storytelling and orchestration, they have composed some of the most melancholic ballads and raucous anthems in contemporary alternative Arabic music, and went on to perform them live at sold-out venues and high profile festivals all over Lebanon, the Middle East, and Europe. Their eponymous debut album and the 'El Hal Romacy' E.P. unfold like cinematographic fictions starring lovesick characters in desolate motels or wandering insomniacs in ghostly cities. At times quirky and playful, at others bitter and somber, the songs demonstrate the band's great versatility and sensitivity in dealing with musical form, lyrical narrative, and socio-political concerns.

Tickets: 50 000 L.L

لا يختلف اثنان على أن سوق دوما الأثري في البترون يضاهي معظم الأسواق الأثرية الموجودة في لبنان جمالاً وتاريخاً وتراثاً، ولكن عدم تأهيله وترميمه يفقد البلدة حركة سياحية واقتصادية، قد تعزز كل القطاعات فيها. وذلك ما يتطلع إليه أبناء دوما وكل القيّمين فيها، ومنذ سنوات عدة والمشروع موضع مراجعات ومطالبات واتصالات، ولكن من دون تحقيق أي نتيجة إيجابية.
في سوق دوما أكثر من 125 محلاً تجارياً، وسينما ومسرح. هو سوق حمل في زواياه تاريخاً عمرانياً وتجارياً مزدهراً للبلدة، التي كانت حتى منتصف القرن العشرين صلة الوصل بين بلاد جبيل وطرابلس ومن جهة وبعلبك والشام من جهة أخرى. السوق الذي يعتبر من أكبر وأهم الأسواق التجارية في جبل لبنان، انحسر دوره مع تطور المواصلات في المناطق الأخرى واقتصر استعماله خلال فترة مهرجانات دوما السنوية لعرض «المنتوجات الدومانية». وقد أدّت «الهجمة السياحية» على لبنان ضرورة ملحة لإعادة ترميم وتأهيل سوقها لما لهذه الخطوة من أهمية ثقافية وسياحية لدوما وللجرد البتروني، وكل المنطقة التي أص…
