#1: Race, we mean, raise the bar and party at the top...all day.
Daytime partying is definitely okay this weekend. On Sunday (Sep 17), the party starts at noon (yup, you read right) at Ce La Vi’s Noon to Moon Party, held in conjunction with party aficionados Sunshine Nation. Get a bird’s eye view of the race tracks as you’re perched atop Marina Bay Sands sipping on bubbly and immersing in the beats of DJ Fred Everything from Canada and Lexer from Germany.
Sep 17, 12pm to 10pm at Ce La Vi Club Lounge, Marina Bay Sands, 1 Bayfront Ave. For tix and more info, go to www.celavi.com.
#2: Steer towards cheap drinks and good view.
Does being a good distance from the deafening F1 screeches yet not be totally away from the action with cheap beer to go sound perfect to you? Top that with drink at wallet-friendly price at Me@OUE: a bucket of five Steinlager Pure goes at $25 with other happy hours perks like $7 house pour spirits. The view of Marina Bay and the Esplanade bridge, the fastest section of the F1 track? Free.
Till Sep 17, Me@OUE, 50 Collyer Quay, OUE Bayfront, all-day. For more info, go to www.me-oue.com.
#3: Live out your F1 dreams in air-con comfort.
You've imagined yourself to be behind the wheel in an F1 car, zooming to eternal glory. Now here's your chance to fulfil this fantasy by taking part in the Race Simulator Challenge at Wisma Atria. Top three scorers don't get a champagne showers moment like Lewis Hamilton, though they do get shopping vouchers. Spend a minimum of $80 for a go at the simulator.
Till Sept 17, Level 1 Indoor Event Space, 11am to 8pm. For more info, go to www.wismaonline.com.
#4: Paint your own Formula 1 car
Who says sports and arts are opposites? Now you can unleash your inner Van Gogh by 'painting' a replica F1 car and witness an innovative mapping technology bring what's in your head into reality. If you're reserved about your artistic inclinations, go for local graphics artist Reza Hasni's trippy animated exhibition in kaleidoscopic collage style.
Till Sep 17, F1 Circuit Park Zone 1. For more info go to www.singaporegp.sg.
#5. Act like an F1 star.
From taking photos on a mock podium with the coveted Singapore night race trophy to walking down memory lane with the Singapore GP champion's gallery (featuring the drivers who've conquered the Marina Bay Street Circuit since 2008) this is a one-stop destination for F1 champ wannabes.
Till Sep 19 at Raffles City Level 1. For more info, go to www.capitaland.com.
