Ditch The Drink – 6 Wholesome Activities To Do This Weekend
Sober doesn't necessarily mean boring
If you're a non-drinker, or you just want a break from the sauce this weekend, we've got you covered. We've had a bit of nose around and found these six cool and wholesome activities to do this weekend....
Dublin Silent Disco Tour
Join Guru Dudu for one of his famous "Silent Disco Walking Tours" around the
city. Everyone wears headphones and listens in to the same music and the Australian comic's commentary. The tour includes lots of spontaneous flash mob dancing
and random interactions with passer-bys. Tours will take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening, they're 50 minutes long and tickets go from €8. In fact, any of the
Laya Healthcare City Spectacular events are a pretty good shout this weekend.
St Vincent Concert
Granted, we mentioned tonight's concert at Iveagh Gardens in another list today and, of course, alcohol will be served at this event, but we've included it for good reason. St Vincent is known for being an amazing live show and you'll be there for the music, this doesn't have to be booze-centric. Indulge in the natural high of seeing a grown woman with purple hair go ape-shit on stage.
Last week we talked about the Fresh Talent exhibition at Dublin Castle, and if you haven't been yet it's worth a gawk. Giving the
spotlight to emerging Irish designers, the
Irish Design exhibition offers a daily tour as well as a host of lectures and workshops, like the Mini Makers children's workshops, experimental
design sessions for dabblers and even LEGO design tutorials.
Fusion Sunday - World Culture Market
Fusion Sunday will celebrate world culture this Sunday at the Dublin Food Co-op, New Market Square. Sure who needs drink when you can indulge in Mexican churros, Indian yoga, Spanish tortilla, Peruvian jewels, Irish
songs and Arabic bellydancing?
Live Art At The MART
If you're the arty type, the discussion of Live Art taking place at The MART in Rathmines tonight might interest you. The round table discussion will be held in MART Gallery 2 at 7pm, where topics will include performance and control, the role of the performance artist in Ireland, and the role of the curator in Live Art, among other things.
Song Of The Sea at The Lighthouse
Here's a newly released, homegrown flick from director Tomm Moore. If you're a fan of animation, mythic adventures featuring mute selkies, or Moone Boy star David Rawle, then this movie will be right up your alley. If you want to be sound and "shop local" by paying to see an Irish film, as the director recently suggested, check out Song of The Sea at The Lighthouse cinema. Watch the trailer below.
