How To Celebrate Your First Payday Since Christmas In Style Without Going Too Crazy

Hallelujah! You did it!! We all thought it would never come. But after what feels like the longest month ever (did someone squeeze an extra week in there in the middle?), a very long and dismal drought is ending. It’s Payday at last! And we don’t know about you, but we’re good and ready to C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E.

Here are a few things we recommend doing off the top of our heads to commemorate this great occasion.

 

Head to town. Big Town. And straight into your favourite cocktail bar- right now we’re loving the very grown up, opulent surroundings of 9 Below on Stephen’s Green (in the basement of the Hibernian Club) for a proper cocktail. It’s the type of place you feel like ordering an ancient whiskey in, even if you never touch the stuff, and where you feel special just because you’re there.  Now, that’s got you started. You’re ready for anything.

 

Next, how about dinner?  We’re headed straight to Fish Shop, 6 Queen Street, Smithfields, because what says weekend and Payday better than a gourmet chipper and mushy peas with friends?

Flex a little plastic online- you know those strappy little numbers you’ve had in your basket all month? It’s time.

 

 

Nail a subscription to Chipped, Dublin’s newest Mani/Pedi bar in Powerscourt Centre where €29 buys you a month’s worth of file and polishes (4 sessions) after an initial annual joining fee of  €30. You’ll be sorted right through to the next Payday.

 

And finally….Pay off some bills. We’re not being funny- it feels like a weight off your shoulders to know some of the Christmas excess is at last sorted. And that’s really liberating.
