This weekend looks set to be a fun-filled one. There’s the Epicurean Market food festival, which launched this afternoon at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre and runs till 13 August. We hear that celebrity chefs Nancy Silverton and Tetsuya Wakuda are in town for the annual event, and can’t wait to stop by ourselves.

Over at Resorts World Sentosa, another gastronomic event will take place tomorrow: The inaugural RWS Street Eats, which showcases hawker and street grub from stalls in Singapore and around the region. Clearly, foodies are a pampered lot this weekend.

For music buffs, British indie band Bastille will perform at The Star Theatre on Monday, 14 August. We reckon catching their gig is the best way to forget those Monday blues. If you’re still short on ideas on what to do this weekend, scroll through this week’s edition of The Cheat Sheet.
