Luxembourg may not be the centre of the universe when it comes to carnival (Cologne, Maastricht and Rio come to mind), but there's still a wonderful pub crawl happening in town! A guide will take you through Shamrock Pub, Rocksolid and Rocas bar before ending in the Apoteca club. Free shots are given with every drink purchase, and admission to Apoteca is free. Meet at Shamrock Pub at 8pm, but you can always join the group at another bar later. And put on your best costume!

Your editor just came out of the cinema from this one, and what a joy it was to watch. Pilot Brodie Torrance saves passengers from a lightning strike by making a risky landing on a war-torn island, only to find that surviving the landing was just the beginning.
