Eat, drink and rock out to Rory Gallagher: this weekend’s What’s On

Eat, drink and rock out to Rory Gallagher: this weekend’s What’s On

Things are starting to feel distinctly spooky around Dublin town with this week’s What’s On. With plenty of Halloween events going on to suit foodies (check out Ali Dunworth’s guide to the best of them), there are plenty of other eerie events to sink your teeth into this week. Okay, I’ll stop with the puns now. Happy weekend from IMAGE!


 

Friday: Rock out at the Rory Gallagher Tribute Night at Workman’s

 

There is an oft-repeated quote about Rory Gallagher’s expertise as a guitarist that does the rounds, saying that, when Jimi Hendrix was asked how it felt to be the greatest guitar player in the world, he replied: “I wouldn’t know, ask Rory Gallagher”. He never actually said this, but it doesn’t matter – what matters is that Gallagher’s talent is still shining through decades later. This Friday night, Workman’s on the quays is putting on their second annual tribute night to the man himself, with tickets available on the door for €15. Get down there early.

 

This weekend: Stuff your face at the DublinTown Food and Drink Festival

This foodie’s dream of a festival kicked off on Monday and will continue on til next Sunday, which makes this weekend prime time for eating and drinking. Enjoy countless special offers at some of the city’s best restaurants, with plenty of tastings, workshops and masterclasses in between to pass the time. It’s hard to recommend just one event, but the Cocktail Masterclass in Lillie’s Bordello on Saturday is a personal favourite.

 

This weekend: Get freaked at the Nightmare Realm in the RDS

If you still haven’t experience the Nightmare Realm, what have you been doing with your time? This is not your typical ‘haunted house’ activity for Halloween – the Nightmare Realm has made a name for itself as being a truly terrifying experience. Which makes it all the more fun, of course. Tickets from €21.

 

Monday: Read and watch the Witches of Eastwick at the Lighthouse’s Cinema Book Club

The Lighthouse has done it again on the brilliant events front with their Cinema Book Club – read the book, then head into their Smithfield cinema to see the movie remake, before chatting it all through with other book club members. Absolute bliss. This week’s edition is suitably spooky for the season, with the film and book of choice being the Witches of Eastwick. Tickets €11.

Thursday: Get the info at Social Media Live in the RDS

 

If your business is having trouble with utilising social media, you should head to Social Media Live on Thursday. Media heavyweights such as Blathnaid Healy of CNN, Malachy Browne of The New York Times and many others will take to the stage to discuss the ways social media is rapidly changing, how it’s influencing people around the world and how you can tap into it. An amazing one-day event, not to be missed.
