Here are the things on our radar for this weekend and the coming week ahead. Happy weekend from IMAGE!


Today:

Dive Into Mikey And Casey’s World Here

If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You tells the story of Mikey and Casey. These two young men are ready to hit the town on Halloween night, with a booty of drugs and booze in tow. The only problem is, they’re stuck on the roof, waiting for the guards to drive away. As they wait, they start to talk and, before long, harsh home truths slowly emerge. If you’re looking to experience original theatre that’s both heartfelt and raucous, If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You is exactly what you’ve been looking for. See the play in The Project Arts Centre until Saturday, February 3rd. Book your tickets here.

Browse Through The Flea Here

The Ha’Penny Market is a great way to spend a few hours in Dublin’s city centre. Located in The Grand Social, just meters from The Ha’Penny Bridge, the market boasts a huge selection of local craftswomen and men selling clothing, vintage vinyl, interiors, jewellery and more. When you’re finished browsing, grab a chilled pint, take a seat and take in the warm ambience. The Ha’Penny market kicks off at 12pm every Saturday.

Have A Swim In The Sea Here

Are you an avid sea-swimmer and coffee lover? Why not do it with other like-minded people too! Join ethical clothing label GROWN this morning from 10am – 12pm, and enjoy a swim at the 40 foot and a free coffee. Did you know that cold-water swimming is proven to release the feel-good hormones? It activates a “blue mind” state, which is a mildly meditative state characterized by calm, peace, unity and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction … it’s a win-win! Click here for more info.
