The world celebrates International Women’s Day on 8 March 2020 – a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Quite a number of hotels and restaurants commemorate the day with special menus and offers for the ladies. Regardless of gender, race, culture or political views, one of the things that unite us in Singapore is food. In good times and bad times people will come together for a good meal. It is thus not surprising that there are plenty of F&B Events, New Menus and New Restaurants to check out in March 2020.
As restaurants and cafes often adjust their opening hours and the duration and details of restaurant deals or dining promotions may be subject to change, we suggest you contact the relevant property ahead of your intended visit. Happy Dining!
