Surely if you're coming from the cricket, you won't be in beach wear, you'll be in cricket wear ;)

Whatever that may be :roll:



Oh Gosh! i think ive shot myself in the foot mentioning the dress code! Its a chilled out place, and has amazing views in the whole of Abu Dhabi!

Seeing as the cricket is free to get in, will there even be tickets?

If no, then you can't get a free drink.

If yes, then keep going in and out of the ground all day accumulating tickets for free drinks.

Huey lad, there will be some flyers on the day. We will be putting them in the Boxes at the stadium. Failing that i will have some on me and will be happy to hand them out to the lads.

Johney Mac is it on the route back from the ground to the Crowne Plaza Yas Island ?
could be a major influence in getting the fans in :D



Its not on the way back... its sort of across in direction. Taxi back from The Shangri-La hotel to Yas Island is about 40AED. so about 7 quid.

Thanks for your reply JonnyMac ,
Here's an idea for you though , can you arrange for a free bus pick at the ground for about 12.00 and return for about 12.40 ish ? then again the free bus pick up 17.15 ish ? We could then have our 2 pints at lunch and straight back to yours after , sounds like a plan to me :D

Gents,

The majority of bars in Abu Dhabi will not allow entry with shorts and flip flops and given the current weather you probably wont want to wear in any event. Think an early May test at Chester-le-street with the wind blowing....
