POW! BAM! Superhero Friday Brunch
No, hunny, this is not your little brother's superhero-themed birthday party when he was four. This is an actual weekend brunch that happens every last Friday of the month at Lagoon restaurant in The Ritz Carlton Doha. It is quirky, it is undeniably fun for both kids and kids at heart.
Somehow it rekindled the lighthearted feeling on a big family reunion that usually happens on the first week of summer — it's sunny outside; the smell of smoked meats becomes a memory, and everything basically oozes with positive energy.
We are all here to have some BAM! kind of fun — it is either you're in or you're out.
Little kids showed up in their incredibly endearing superhero outfits. The kids at heart were also feeling the theme and dressed in their superhero tees and/or actual costumes. The waitstaff: some of them are dressed as your favorite superhero — Superman, Captain America and yeah, girls, I hear you, Super Girl is also there. Not Wonder Woman, obviously, because have you seen her latest costume? That is literally haram*. And the rest are simply wearing a yellow — nope, not apron — cape.
*in the Mid-east, we say haram when something is forbidden in Islam
as in baring the entire decolletage a la Wonder Woman
