    In October 2020, an anonymous buyer purchased a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton, known as Stan, for $31.8 million, the most expensive fossil ever purchased at auction. For two years, the bones disappeared from the public eye, leaving paleontologists concerned about the potential loss to science—until now.

    For National Geographic, reporter Michael Greshko has revealed the dinosaur will be housed in a new natural history museum in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).


    National Geographic's Greshko, who broke the story on Stan's new home, found Stan using United States' shipping and trade records. He identified a shipment worth $31,847,500—Stan's exact sale price—that was exported from New York to the UAE in May 2021. On March 23, 2022, Abu Dhabi's Department of Culture and Tourism confirmed Stan's new home would be in the new Natural History Museum of Abu Dhabi, which is currently under construction and slated to open in 2025, per National Geographic.

    Good listing of the new restaurants and entertainment offerings coming to Yas Island waterfront.

    Yas Bay Waterfront on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island is one of the most exciting F&B developments in the UAE. The capital’s ‘adventure island’ is already home to a handful of hotels, including the W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island, and restaurants and bars at Yas Marina, but the new development, which opened to tie in with the UAE’s 50th national day, has seen a number of big-name operators move into Abu Dhabi.


    New names slated for opening soon are:
    Akiba Dori
    Asia Asia
    Café Del Mar
    Daikan Izakaya
    Hunter & Barrel
    La Carnita
    Lock, Stock & Barrel
    Paradiso Nicole et Pierre
    Siddharta Lounge
