We are approaching a nice weekend full of events in Lisbon but this time the agenda got even bigger: keep reading!

I’ve been working quite hard for this Lisbon weekend events calendar: first of all, yes I have been working!
Finally, Elio is well settled in creche, and this week has started to sleep there, and so after many days spent in the surroundings of the school to pick him up after lunch, or waiting a call from the teacher to go and pick him up if he didn’t manage to sleep when he was still getting used to it, yesterday I finally left the school neighborhood, São Bento, to join some friends for lunch at amazing Amelia in Campo de Ourique. I was very happy and full of energy.

First I stopped at Victoria Cycling cafe since I’d never been there before: I got a nice media de Leite (flat white) and a tomato and garlic Tosta that remembered me of Sevilla.

I got to finish my calendar and took this nice picture with all the flyer from this weekend events in Lisbon, my computer and my Engel purse with my most precious belongings, I trick I invented in order to keep wallet, keys, and sunglasses together to move them easily when I change bag or backpack, like between 2 to 4 times a day!

What do I suggest to do this weekend?

Baobà livraria in celebrating 2 years: it’s an amazing bookshop for kids all ages and they will have activities from 10 til 19. If you fancy a brunch-lunch you can go to Amelia (there will be a long cue but with kids usually they let you seat first) or at simpler Trigo de Aldeia, good Portuguese food at very good prices. By the chance you are there, check the monthly market in the main square or try the super fries of the square’s quiosque, with basilicum mayo. Soon you will be able to enojy a sustainable haircut or a coffee at new Pikikos, cut care and coffee, soon to open in the neighborhood.

If you are a mom and you want to start exercising, send your partner or relatives with your kid/s to Baobà, and join me and other moms at the launch of Mom in Balance at Jardim da Estrela: remember to subscribe on their websites in order to secure yourselves a nice goodie bag and a Detox juice. If you sign for their classes before 20th of November you get 50%off on the first month.

Then in the afternoon, you can join another bookshop party at It’s a book, in Graça: if you live around there and you do not fancy a bus trip to Campo de Ourique, you can go and have brunch at Aldeia Crescer en Familia while you kid color himself with edible colors at Coloritis event.

On Sunday I suggest to pay a visit at the nice Lx Rural and Clothes market in Lx Factory and then you can reserve a spot for Balbucia, Theatre for babies of 0-36 months or, already in the morning, you can try the new theatre Lu.Ca in Ajuda and attend to Bianca Branca de Leonor Keil.

Are you not in Lisbon this weekend? No worry, we got you cover.

This week, for the first time, I thought about creating a small selection of events in the main cities of Europe. I’ve selected 4 events in 4 different cities spanning around the continent, so if you live close by or you are planning a weekend trip, this list is especially for you.
