Hi and welcome to our campaign page.

10% of profits raised from our business will be used to fund local projects as well as supporting the poorer people of Egypt

What we are wanting to do?

we are wanting to open a totally unique restaurant in cairo.

what is unique about it ?

The restaurant will be called Antony and Cleopatra. Cleopatra was queen of Egypt back in 44BCE Antony was, after a long love affair became Cleopatra's husband.

we want to open a restaurant that will decorated with Egyptian statues, ancient egyptian clothing while there would be ancient Egyptian and Roman music after all Antony was part of the Roman Empire.

What will the funding be used for ?

we are looking to have a total of $50,000, this will help us get a location in cairo as well as go towards the costs of decorating and hieroglyphic work on the walls as well as creating a water feature that would represent the river nile part will also be used to fund the research of Ancient Egyptian beer please see below….if we don't reach the target goal the funds would still be used to get a location for our idea

10% of our profits from the business will be used to fund local projects in cairo as well as to fund children getting into school

What about the food ?

the cuisine of Ancient Egypt spans over 3000 years we will be looking at trying to match the Ancient cuisine with what is available in todays markets, it will take on a 'carvery' look where there would be whole roasted duck, pigeons and possibly goats and lambs as well as chickens and whole roasted fish with also stews, home made bread, lots of vegetables and fruits.

The roasting of the meats would be done by spit roasting.

And the drink ? We will be providing the normal soft drinks but we are also looking at bringing back the Ancient method of making beer in Egypt brewed from wheat, barley or millet. The normal supply of beers and wine will still be available if customers don't want to try the ancient variety…

What other ways can you help ?

you can help by spreading the word with your friends, family and colleagues on twitter, Facebook and any other social networking site,

If you know anyone who researches ancient methods of making alcohol please put us in touch !
