10th Mar 2018
After last week’s mental weather, we’re just about back to normality at IMAGE HQ. If you’re anything like us, you’ll be itching to do something fun events-wise this weekend after being stuck inside during Storm Emma (not that Netflix and wine aren’t fun, of course). Check out our picks of the best things to do around the city. Happy weekend from IMAGE!
Today And Tomorrow: Sing your heart out at BMW Carpool Karaoke at Eatyard
It’s no surprise that the idea of Carpool Karaoke has gotten huge in the last few years (I mean, who doesn’t love a good singalong in the car?). Now BMW is jumping on the bandwagon (get it?) and launching their brand new X2 car at Eatyard this weekend at the Bernard Shaw with some good old-fashioned group karaoke. There will be two of BMW’s brand new models and you and your mates can book them for up to 30 minutes of singalongs, with the food mecca that is Eatyard right around you.
Tomorrow: Show your city some love at Sure Look It, Fuck It by THISISPOPBABY at the Complex
The arts, drama and theatre collective THISISPOPBABY has given us some of the biggest cultural gems to come out of Ireland in the past few years, such as Adam and Paul and Panti Bliss’ High Heels in Low Places tour. Their current project Where We Live is running from the 6th to the 18th March and is packed full of dramatic tributes to life in Dublin city, including spoken word performance Sure Look It, Fuck It, which is a story we’ll all recognise. Missy is an Irish emigrant who’s recently returned to home shores and is struggling to find her place in Dublin after being away. With tickets at just €8, this is the perfect way to spend a Sunday paying tribute to Dublin’s fair city and all its quirks.
Next Week: Paint the town green with ‘Greening the City‘ for St. Patrick’s Day

By next week, we’ll be well on the way to the St. Patrick’s day celebrations and all the lovely Irishness that comes with it. A walk around Dublin city at night is always a nice way to spend an evening, but from next Thursday, the city’s landmarks will be lit up in a green glow in celebration of our national day. If you’re looking for a new Instagram pic, there’ll be some great opportunities here.
Next Week: Practice your Cúpla Focal at the Pop Up Gaeltacht
If you want to immerse yourself in our country’s teanga next week, then the lads at Pop Up Gaeltacht are providing the perfect setting on Friday – a pub crawl across the Dame district. Using a language in a non-formal setting is said to be the best way to learn, and spending your Friday night meeting new Gaeilgeoirí is a perfect way to start.
For Mother's Day Lia Hynes sits down with Rosanna Davidson, whose exceptional journey into motherhood has given many hope.
