twin·gle. Verb \ˈtwiŋ(g)əl\. Definition of TWINGLE. Dial Brit.: twist, wriggle. Origin of TWINGLE. Origin unknown. This word doesn’t not exist in any of our dictionary but it does on twitter, this what #KOT have been doing on twitter since Saturday last week. “It was nice meeting you during the weekend”. “What an awesome weekend it was”. The list is endless considering it was a trending topic on twitter. Twingle is the twitter version if Mingle, an event that happened on Saturday last week.
With last Saturday missive attendance of 7000+ The Heineken Mingle is undoubtedly the biggest event in Kenya right now, therefore attracting all kind of persons from the “social class” to emerging social class, university and colleges students and a lot talks in town. A good thing for the organizer. So what exactly happens at The Heineken Mingle? Adults playing childhood games and hoping to score (insert cheeky smile) as simple as that, yes it’s based on games. Personally I’ve been to the event and its awesome, they have this PS3 and Nintendo Wii technology games that are too addictive, its heartbreaking when your turn ends, an electric basketball hoop thing, this is – the boy meets girl or girl meets boy, boy and girl fall in love, while still competing who can make the most basket in 2 minutes- kind of game; My personal favorite.
However with big attendance means less time play time, which is just sad but over and above that it is still the most talked about events in town right now and if you missed it you can catch it next on June the 15th meanwhile here are the hottest events a happening this week;
Being the last week of the month it is the busiest week and weekend of the month so I’ll go ahead and talk about the biggest events happening. Smirnoff- the night comes to life party in Nakuru will be the mother of all nightlife events happening this month being an iteration of their end of year party which drew in an estimated 3,000 revelers in what was billed as Nairobi’s biggest ever New Year’s Eve party, will be a good way to end the month, otherwise you can join the rugby fans that will be travelling to Mombasa for the Mombasa international sevens on Saturday. Back in Nairobi the Kids festival at Nyayo Stadium will be the place to be for the young parents or nannies and kids.
