Your Bank Holiday, Three Ways??

Your Bank Holiday, Three Ways??

1 GALWAY Silent Disco Street Party
Dance like no one’s watching OR listening at Galway’s genius silent disco tomorrow night. The brainchild of indie icon Roisin Dubh?this block party is as much fun to spectate as it is to participate in. Watch punters bust their best (and worst) moves to mysteriously mute soundtracks. The craziness runs 8pm-1am and costs?
?20, with a refundable deposit of €10. So if you love a boogie and have a whole host of guilty pleasures you’d prefer no one to ever overhear, this is your kinda dancefloor.

2 DUBLIN Bloom Fringe?


Only three years young, Bloom Festival’s baby-sitter takes root in Dublin City this bank holiday weekend. While The Phoenix Park is set to amaze with show gardens and food stalls, Bloom Fringe?is?urban-orientated: a ?green triangle? between Dame Lane, Barnardo Square (beside City Hall) and Dublin Castle, where a pop-up forest, plant hospitals, basket weaving workshops and demos await. Also worth a goo are the Irish premiere/Q&A of LA-based guerrilla gardener Ron Finley’s new film Can You Dig This?, Vanda Costello’s garden tours, the SodShow’s live podcasts, outdoor yoga, and community garden open days. Blooming lovely.

3 DUBLIN Vegan Pop-up Restaurant
Calling all plant-fanciers: ROOTS + SAGE return with their second pop-up restaurant at the Dublin Food Co-op in Newmarket, D8 this Saturday. There, meat-dodgers can feast on all things flesh-free in a four-course set menu guaranteed to bust old and fusty misconceptions about vegan food being little more than soggy tofu and leftover lentils. There are two seatings: the first at 7pm, the second at 8.30pm – but diners tight-of-waistband are more than welcome to linger on the comfy couches afterwards. Tickets cost €30 and – Lambrini at the ready, lads – the event is BYOB.
