Painting by: Abu Fofana
It is our second weekend back in Monrovia now, but the first that we are actually stepping out! Although things are admittedly slow economically in the entire country at the moment, it is not enough to stop Liberians from truly living up to their reputation for enjoyment. As such, we have rounded up some interestingly diverse events happening in Liberia this weekend that is pro-poor friendly, and still very fun! Continue below for a full guide to an exciting weekend heading your way here in Liberia.

Unrestricted Plug In Secret Party
The most anticipated event of the weekend has no details at all! How can that be? Well, all we do know is that the invitation-only event is bringing together some of the country’s top celebrities, influencers, bloggers, and online personalities for a party dubbed “Plug In”. With many youth constantly complaining about the restrictions they feel imposed on them by the limited opportunities in Liberia, we are excited to feel what it means to live a life unrestricted, as presented by Feeling Restricted this Saturday at the Millenium Hotel.
Afrik Collective Live at Mamba Point Hotel
The Afrik Collective is a neo/afro-soul band composed of some incredible talents in Liberia’s music industry. Hear them play at Mamba Point Hotel this Saturday, as you enjoy some of the delicious wine and sushi the hotel has to offer. A perfect date night if you ask us!
Dele’s Salon 1 Year Anniversary Celebration Specials
Dele’s natural Hair Clinic in central Monrovia is the place to get beautified this weekend, as they celebrate their one year anniversary. You can visit the salon this Saturday to enjoy some champagne as you get your nails done, while getting your hair washed and styled in collaboration with Naz Naturals. The best way to support local businesses is to become a customer, and so, start your beauty regimen at Dele’s Natural Hair Clinic this Saturday!
Now, this is a long overdue symposium! It is no secret that Liberian youth are increasingly succumbing to the grips of drug, alcohol, and sex abuses. Due to the highly vulnerable nature of the country and it’s youth, drug abuse is becoming widely prevalent, and this symposium by the Archdiocesan Youth Assembly hopes to open a dialogue that can inspire change. Attend this with your children and friends to help share the very important message.
Embassy Suites Hotel Salsa Night
Not because we are in Africa means we can’t learn other cultures, right? Right! So, if you are looking for some diversity in your weekend routine, salsa night at the Piano Bar at Embassy Suites Hotel in Mamba Point, Monrovia is your perfect date-night option!
Capital Brunch with DJ FiA
Sunday Brunch at the Capital Room in Mamba Point has made itself the go-to spot for upscale Sunday fun in Monrovia. Scratch all other post-service plans you’ve made and go brunch it up with some of Liberia’s top influencers and move-makers! Plus, the food is delicious too!
See? What did we tell you? A very exciting weekend indeed lies ahead! While the country hustles to get back on its feet, be sure to support local business owners if you can this and every weekend, so as to support in bettering Liberia’s depreciating economy. Many local businesses are doing their part by finding creative ways to keep businesses running in the country, so do yours by supporting when and where you can!
Hope to run into some of you at some point during the weekend! Until next time. 🙂
