Not sure what to do this weekend? We’ve got you covered.

      1. The SIGNAL Festival: A Festival of Lights

The SIGNAL festival is the largest cultural event in the Czech Republic, bringing modern art and new technology to the wider and technical public. The streets and public spaces of Prague, its most famous historical landmarks, and even a few lesser-known nooks and crannies will be transformed for four nights under the leadership of Czech and global personalities in light art and design.

For three years the festival has drawn over a million attendees to Prague streets from the Czech Republic and beyond, earning its status as one of the most important festivals of its kind, both in the Czech Republic and on the international stage. This year is sure to be a blast with a variety of great installations worth checking out. Get involved!

      3. Caribbean dance and dinner @ Vincanto

It’s cold as hell out there, so warm up with some Dominican food and dance at Vincato. According to the flyer you don’t have to dance if you want to and just enjoy the food, but then it wouldn’t be an authentic experience now would it? Go meet some people or take your girl out for a night on the town, Dominican style!
