The fourth season of Stranger Things (or at least the first seven episodes) is dropping just in time for a weekend binge. The season, which we’ve been waiting on for nearly three full years, picks up more or less where we left off at the end of Stranger Things 3 in July 2019, following Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Will (Noah Schnapp), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Max (Sadie Sink), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) as Eleven and Will try to settle into a new life in California, while the rest of the gang goes on with life back in Hawkins. Each episode this season will be rather lengthy, running at around 75 minutes each. A promising review: “Stranger Things 4 is bigger, bloodier, and much more intense than the seasons that came before it, but it also feels like a natural evolution of the sprawling epic the Duffer Brothers have been telling from the very beginning,” writes The Verge.

🎾Good news / bad news from Roland Garros: Our very own tennis champion Mayar Sherif became the first ever Egyptian woman to make it to the second round of the French Open on Tuesday, after defeating Ukraine’s Marta Kostyuk. The 26-year-old has unfortunately withdrawn from the championship, however, due to a fractured foot. Sherif was scheduled to face off with Slovenia’s Tamara Zidanšek.
🐟 EAT THIS TONIGHT-
Back to the classics: Sea Gull is a great place for a satisfying “aklet samak”: On an anchored boat on the Nile, Sea Gull gives you a wide selection of high quality seafood as well as a great view of the water. The restaurant has stuck to the traditional fish ordering process where you have to go see the fish and pick out what you want, but they let you get creative with how you want your seafood cooked. Get their sea bass with cream and mozzarella or their mussels with garlic and lemon. We also loved their fried calamari and shrimp (and really appreciated that it came fully peeled). Sea Gull just opened branches in North Coast’s Marina Hotel as well as in New Cairo’s Mar.v Mall (located on the North 90 street).
