Eat! Brussels Drink! Bordeaux
Fifteen Brussels chefs and international guest cooks teamed up with more than 50 wineries from Bordeaux to offer four days of wining and dining at the fifth edition of Eat! Brussels Drink! Bordeaux in the Royal Park this weekend. The chefs are offering a different dish each day for the fixed price of €9. Additionally those dishes are being paired with Bordeaux wines selected especially for the occasion, as winemakers in six pavilions dedicated to the different Bordeaux wine families showcase their produce. Reporter Richard Harris checks it out.

Beyond Bollywood is an infectious high-energy live stage celebration of Indian dancing. With close to 30 dancers and 700 costumes the show is a kaleidoscope of colors, musics, emotions and various Indian dancing styles including Rajahstani, Gujarati and Punjabi as well as a fusion with Western pop dancing which after 60 performances at the London Palladium is now undertaking a four continent tour including performances in Brussels and Antwerp.

Brussels Comic Strip Festival
Over 90,000 people attended the Brussels Comic Book Festival last weekend proving once again Brussels' preeminence as the capital of the Ninth Art. Another measure of its position was the many comic book artists and publishing houses from around the world who took part. We spoke with artists and publishers from Korea and Hong Kong as well as organizers of the Brussels Algiers Havana Triangle project and a purveyor of English language comics and graphic novels in Brussels.
