In the light of recent events it feels frivolous to be talking about places to go and things to do in Monaco this weekend. So we'll start with the details of two institutions that are requesting donations to help Ukraine.

Monaco Red Cross hopes to raise 80,000 euros for victims of the conflict. You can send a cheque made out to Croix-Rouge Monegasque, at 27 boulevard de Suisse, or donate online at Croix-Rouge Monegasque faire un don.

Alternatively you can send a cheque for Caritas Monaco at Paroisse Sainte Devote, 1 place Sainte Devote. The Catholic organisation is providing food, fuel, medicines and more for people in need. Donate online at Caritas Ukraine appeal.

Prince Albert expressed his solidarity with Ukrainians in a press release (on facebook) on Monday. He said that Monaco is freezing assets and implementing economic sanctions identical to most of Europe.

Football associations FIFA and UEFA have suspended Russian clubs and national teams from all competitions, but this didn't interfere with last Friday's draw for round 16 of the Europa League. Monaco faces Braga in an away match on Thursday 10 March, and at home on 17 March.

This evening 3rd-year students of Pavillon Bosio are showing their work on the theme Macrotopia, from 18:00 to 20:00 in the Quai Antoine 1er exhibition hall. There are paintings, sculptures, installations and more. Free entry, +377 93 30 18 39.

While the health pass is still required to eat out and go to the theatre, you can now stand at the bar to have a drink. That means informal networking events are allowed again, and Monaco USA is quick off the mark with its happy hour a week on Tuesday.

And finally...

Hotel Metropole's sommeliers are organising a series of wine tastings with dinner. You might just squeeze in for Chardonnay tonight, otherwise book ahead for Pinot Noir in April, bubblies in June, and Port in September. Contact +377 93 15 15 75, bar[at]metropole.com. Enjoy!
