There are tons of events at the American University, both the campus in Tahrir square and the new one in the middle of the dessert.
Egyptian elite in combination with American/international exchange students attend this university. In general, they are extremely wealthy and dress better than you do.
I love the Tahrir campus because it is a haven of beauty and greenery smack dab in the chaos of downtown. God knows how much water they waste watering the lawn here but it sure is beautiful. The bookstore is also good and has a nice sitting area next to some running water--no Arabic books so don't worry. Typical American University stuff, shunning the Egyptian for the foreigner. Don't take my word for it though, go and see for yourself!
You might need an AUC id in order to get in, but if you had a friend with one, that would probably suffice, or you might just need to sign in. Doesn't hurt to try.
