We like all about Lahore city due to the obvious architectural and cultural beauty that it is, as well as the annual khaaba. We were born and raised in Lahore; therefore, our hearts beat with pure desi flair. However, Lahori winter is our favorite weather. It isn't as desolate as Karachi, nor as cold as Isloo, Quetta, or Peshawar. It's a perfect balance. With the cold come the festive bills: birthdays, meals, parties, GTs, anniversaries, dholkis, and you'd be lucky to have one day to yourself on this schedule. Even if you aren't outgoing, there is much for Lahoris to enjoy in the wonderful city during the season.
So, here are eight winter activities in Lahore.
Where in the world is it hot, spicy, and Almashhoor?
A fried fish establishment in Lahore can't be topped for masala, flavor, and atmosphere. Winters bring excitement, hell of noise tumult and long lines at Sardar and Bashir, and once you've had a flavor of Lahore, all other fried fish becomes meaningless. WHO DAT
Try Amritsari Hareesa on Nisbet Road or Lakshmi Chowk for the Phopo of Haleem, a wonderful dish with kashmiri chillie and spicy masala that will transport you to the Middle East! Belly Start Bopping!!
Uncles and aunts, as well as some real fitness enthusiasts, are flocking to the parks for long jogs and walks, because, hey, we all must get our summer bodies ready. It's the time for Lahori long walks if you're a romantic like us, with music on the iPod and dreams in your thoughts.
Most of us have had the BBQ that wasn't properly cooked simply because it's winter and Lahori's have to do their own BBQ. Actually, everything we need is a justification for khaaba and fun, as well as a room to have a fantastic party (you ain't Lahori if you don't throw a party without food).
However, in the event of smog, make careful to check climate notifications.
Grapefruit and dry fruit (the stash that's hidden for the guests) and mothers (or aya ammi) oiling our hair are clearly part of the cold weather life we've all been dreaming of.
We all have various reactions to the never-endingweddings. We go for the food. If you're getting married somewhere that doesn't provide nice cuisine, don't bother making that invitation, and if you have less than 7 nights of events in a row, you're not from around here. Each Lahoris winter includes Qawalis, Milads, Dholkis, Showers, and a slew of other crazy wedding-related festivities.
The go-to drink for morning hours and cold evenings, it's like a hot cup that's mending your soul from all the frost of Lahori winters because cold nights are often melancholy and a mug of coffee with a friend may give you all the chuckles + emotions.
Weekend picnics with the whole family jam are such a delight when you're surrounded by men and women of all ages; nana/granny, or dada/grandmother with their kids and their kids, and buckets full of excellent wholesome food is a perfect way to reconnect after a long work week.
