A few fun ways to spend the day with those special ladies in your life.
International Women’s Day features this month, and if you’re tired of the typical flowers, cards, chocolates, and balloons routine, then read on: we’ve got a few unconventional ideas to let her know she’s appreciated.
Show it with Food
We all love sleeping ‘til noon on Sun-days, which means there was never a better time to brunch. The Hyatt do an amazing job of ensuring your senses as well as your tastebuds go home happy. Enjoy an elaborate ar-ray of dishes from across Asia and Europe, while you sip on prosecco. What’s interesting about the most recent evolution of Brunch at the Hyatt is their inclusion of fashion at the event. On 8 March, Helen Marlen will ensure that all the gals in attendance are properly divert-ed. Can’t make the Women’s Day brunch? No problem. Make sure you book your calendars for 29 March and 26 April, where more fabulous food and fashion are perfectly paired.

Find Her G-Point
The theatre not your thing? What about improvisational theatre? An entire show created spontane-ously and randomly, (hopefully) resulting in hilarity! This genre is new for Ukrainians, but thanks to a number of local comedians it’s starting to gain traction. This 8 March, G-point – Generation of Improv, premiers at Freedom Hall. You’ll be sure to enjoy a number of comical sketches, where the audience suggests ideas for the ac-tors to turn into stories. If you’re brave enough, you can even get up on stage and take part in the back and forth. Author’s note: the event is in Russian language. Though a challenge for English speakers on the evening might well ensure next level amusement.

History in the Making
Dmytro Shurov, aka Pianoboy, re-cently released his fourth studio album History. Created by a “ma-ture man” preserving his “boy-hood immediacy and courage”, Shurov ensures a powerful evening of Ukrainian rock beside a live or-chestra, with some intense lyrics. In addition to the new stuff, earlier hits Kokhannia, Rodymky, Shampanski Ochi, and more are in the program.

Back in the Saddle
The ladies love horses (for some rea-son) and taking her on a horseback ride to an amazing place is just the thing to show her how much you care.

It matters not whether you’ve been on a horse before: their instructors will get you comfortable as you sit 15 hands high so this 8 March is one neither of you will forget.
