What's up, Gurgaon?

Hello, good people! This week, too, has come to an end. The weather is getting better; the rain gods have been blessing us with the occasional shower and some respite from the scorching sun. Seems like the universe is conspiring to get us out there and have a great time this weekend!

Here goes City Spidey's list of Gurgaon weekend options to choose from:
