The Duffer Bros bring us an explosive (and very long) Stranger Things season finale

📺 ON THE TUBE TONIGHT-
(all times CLT)

It’s finally here: the Stranger Things season 4 finale is now streaming on Netflix. The closing chapter to the penultimate season of what plenty of people argue is the best Netflix show of all time is finally available to stream (watch, runtime 2:05). We were quite impressed with the first seven episodes of Stranger Things’ long awaited fourth season when they dropped in May, but the action-packed cliffhanger left us with so many questions and we couldn’t wait to get the answers — and the finale delivers. #NoSpoilers, but we will say this: The mega-popular series may be returning for a fifth and final season, but that doesn’t mean that all of our favorite characters will come out of the final episode unscathed.

Make sure you have nothing pressing when you watch it: The season finale clocks in longer than most feature films at nearly 2.5 hours. Side note: We loved Kate Bush before y’all.

The 2021-2022 Egyptian Cup’s semi finals kick off today: Ismaili will face Ghazl El Mahalla at 6pm, then Future will play against Enppi at 9.30pm.

The time traveling in the Egyptian Cup continues: Yesterday, Al-Ahly defeated Petrojet in the semi-finals of the 2020-2021 Egypt Cup (which is being played in parallel with the current Cup). The Reds will face Zamalek in the final on 21 July.

🥐EAT THIS TONIGHT-

Head to Topaz at Walk of Cairo for the right balance of class and casual. With scrumptious main dishes and an exquisitely-designed new venue at Sodic West’s Walk of Cairo, Topaz has climbed up our list of favorite casual dining spots. We enjoyed just about everything we tried, but if you’re looking for specific recommendations, you can’t go wrong with their fresh Norwegian grilled salmon filet or their signature fish paupiette. Their salads are creative, fresh and highly satisfying, and their dessert options are just as yummy — the chocolate fondant and the date gratin are not to be missed.

🎤 OUT AND ABOUT-
(all times CLT)

It’s swing dancing night at Minglings tonight: The Heliopolis venue is hosting a swing dancing night tonight at 8pm, kicking things off with an introductory class followed by dancing games and competitions. Minglings urges attendees to dress up in their “20s or 50s outfits” to really get into the spirit. Register beforehand — it’s EGP 300 for the class and the party, and EGP 150 if you just want to rock up after the class.

💡 UNDER THE LAMPLIGHT-

There’s a wealth of literature on climate change, but Supercharge Me is a refreshing addition. For starters, it takes for granted that we need to prevent the earth’s temperature from rising 1.5°C (none of us want to rehash the arguments on whether or not we’re facing a global emergency, and what the targets should be for slowing it down.) Fund manager Eric Lonergan and sustainability adviser Corinne Sawers enlighten us on how we can get to net zero faster, moving past all the target-talk to actions that they say have the power to “supercharge” change. This includes what they call EPICs or “extreme positive incentives for behavioral change.” This breezy and informative read has answers for individuals, businesses and governments on what they can do to help, in what publishers Columbia University Press are calling “one of the most accessible and practical guides to the climate crisis.”
