Yet another week passed in a haze of snow and tiredness, but the good news is the weekend is here—you’ve made it! Kick back and relax if you have to, but don’t forget there is an entire city out there that is only waiting to be discovered. And what better time than the weekend to enjoy a drink with friends, spend time with the children or watch a movie without having to worry about deadlines?

Here is our condensed Weekend Edit to help you choose among the wide variety of events in town, but if you feel like expanding your horizons you can also check our app Happenings for further suggestions.

Drag-Súgur: Valentine’s Day Special!
16th Feb. — 21:00 — Gaukurinn – 2.500 ISK

Sharon Needles and Alaska might be long gone, but that doesn’t mean your dream drag love is as dead as Sharon’s career. Bring your heart, get a hard on, and celebrate love in all its forms at Drag-Súgur’s annual Valentine’s Day Special. Yup, this is the time to pick up that Grindr date and put on your cupid eleganza for Drag-Súgur’s own version of“The Bitchelor”. Hopefully Milk doesn’t show up. Remember: A drag show is like a box of chocolate… you’ll never know what you’ll get… but you’ll be left WANTING MORE! *Tongue-pop*

Multicultural Family Drawing Workshop
17th Feb. — 13:00 — Gerðarsafn – Kópavogur Art Museum

How often do you have the opportunity to dive with your children into a multicultural environment that is both fun and educational? The Kópavogur Art Museum has recently created a new, intriguing drawing workshop inspired by artist and illustrator Barbara Árnason, which will be held in Polish, Icelandic, Arabic, French, English and German. The workshop will take children and adults on a creative journey that draws from fantasy and memory alike, encouraging them to draw their own travel stories, whether fictional or real, dreamt or experienced. A fun family-friendly way to pass a Saturday afternoon while also making international friends.

Lowercase Night #66 With Futuregrapher
18th Feb. — 21:30 — Prikið

Lowercase night at Prikið is easily one of the most interesting regular events you can attend in Reykjavík. The concept is simple: sit down to watch a movie as you sip a beer with a friend, while an artist or band improvises an ambient soundtrack for the movie. Even if you aren’t a fan of ambient music, this is such a bizzare, unique experience that you might end up coming back for it every month. This time, Prikið invited electronic musician Futuregrapher to score a movie of his choice. Will it be sappy? Scary? Absurd? There’s only one way to find out.
