This week has had some of the most pleasant days of the year so far, so naturally, everyone has lost the run of themselves. Cans by the canal will be the regular occurrence from now until the tail end of September, while sunglasses, light jackets and (dare we say it) bare legs are the uniform of the day. Who cares if it’s ten degrees — we’ve got to make that spring feeling last as long as possible. To celebrate, we have plenty of opportunities to dance, sing and move to your heart’s content. Happy weekend from IMAGE!
On Friday: Break your heart all over again at the A Star is Born Caraoke screening at Leopardstown Racecourse
It’s March now, so you will have just about recovered from the heart-wrenching-gut-punching-sob-into-your-popcorn A Star is Born after its release five months ago. But guess what? It’s time to do it all again! Leopardstown Racecourse is hosting a Caraoke (see what they did there) drive-in screening, so you can see it in all its glory as the sun sets on a beautiful Friday evening in Dublin. Tickets are €31.90 for a five-seater car, or €33.50 for a seven-seater.
