For the third year in a row I am unable to attend Electric Picnic.
And I am as bitter as ever.
I mean, eh, I am perfectly content being stuck in an office for the entire weekend. No place I'd rather be.
*wink, wink, nudge, nudge*
I've deleted Snapchat and logged out of Facebook for the weekend in the hopes that I will remain utterly oblivious to all the banter down in Stradbally. Instead, I have come up with this hunreal list of things to distract yourself with.
Sure, I might see you there.
1. Go see Billy Elliot before it's too late
As someone who haaates musicals, I cannot recommend going to see Billy enough.
It kind of changed my life.
Tomorrow is the last day however, so get your tickets now. Or regret it forever.
2. Catch a gig
Conor Oberst is playing in The Bord Gáis on Sunday and we can't think of a dreamier way to spend your EP-free Sunday.
3. Get brunch with an old friend
That person you keep thinking of and meaning to contact – just bite the bullet.
Get onto them and grab brunch. Boozy brunch.
Find some suggestions here.
4. Do a free city tour
Think you know this city like the back of your hand?
This 3 hour tour is completely free and you'll thoroughly enjoy getting to know our city all over again.
5. Drink an espresso martini
Nothing says 'I'm-fine-and-I-didn't-want-to-go-to-EP-anyways' like an espresso martini
We got you.
6. Escape the Adventure Rooms
Grab a team and head to the Adventure Rooms on Little Britain Street for a bit of team work, competition and good craic.
7. Get cooking/baking
So let your inner domestic god/goddess shine in the kitchen this weekend and impress all your mates upon their return from EP.
