11 Reasons Why You Definitely Shouldn’t Have A BBQ Tonight


Typical. The sun comes out, and so too do the notions of the Irish people – thinking that a barbecue is a respectable, acceptable thing to crack out on a fine June evening such as this.

Well here at Lovin Dublin we say ‘down with that sort of thing’.

So, just in case you’re being bugged or pressured by someone to actually go out and try make the ‘most’ of that ‘weather’, here are 11 reasons why you should steer well clear.

1. It’s definitely going to rain. Any minute now.

2. Why tonight? Sure it’s sunny in Dublin most nights
