A Dublin pub is launching a new Sober Sundays event this weekend and they’ve got a whole load of fun activities going on without any booze in sight.
Have yourself a wholesome afternoon at MVP on Clanbrassil Street, where you can do yoga, eat delish food and try out some alcohol-free drink tastings.
MVP is part of the Bodytonic group that will be leading the whole day of fun events and aim to take the focus off drinking.
It’s going to kick of at 12pm with Reggae Yoga (you can find booking details on the MVP site here) and at 2pm there’s a non-alcoholic drinks tasting with brands like Seedlip, Findlater’s non alcoholic wine and King of Kefir.
Food will be in the form of small bites boards from Grálinn, the pop-up caterer and food truck who currently have a residency at the pub.
MVP will also be launching a non-alcoholic beer club on the day, run by their drinks arm Brewtonic. Then they’ve got a kombucha demonstration at 3pm followed by a section on Mindful Drinking at 4pm.
Stick around into the evening for Aoife McElwain’s Sing Along Sober at 7pm which costs €6 and can be booked online here – and best of all, there’s a screening of The Goonies at 5pm.
Bodytonic’s Ellen Fitzpatrick, who will be running the event, said, “We wanted to have a bit of craic and learn more about non-alcoholic drinks in a fun space, so Sober Sundays was born.
“For now, MVP is its home, but we’ll see how it goes and we might roll it out in the other bars, too. We’re trying hard to make sure there are tasty and fun drinks on offer in Bodytonic bars if you’re not boozing.”
