While you may have missed the event of the season already this week (the launch of IMAGE's brand new fashion podcast Smart Casual, of course), there's plenty more going on to keep you entertained. Whether its the craic and beers of Oktoberfest as it opens its doors, or if you're looking for something more professional, we've got you covered. Happy weekend from IMAGE!

A staple in the Dublin calendar at this stage, Oktoberfest is back at George's Dock for the rest of the month, serving healthy amounts of pretzels, Bavarian beer and cheesy tunes to kick off a great night out. It's free in every night except Thursday after 6 pm (€8), or Friday and Saturday (€12, which includes a fiver food voucher).


On Saturday: Get cultured at DUBLinternational

If you're a budding entrepreneurship or just someone who has an idea for a new business, the Start Summit could become your new secret weapon. This one-day event in Dublin Castle is chock-full of seminars and discussions on absolutely everything you need to run a business - we're talking government supports, accounting, building a website and more. Well worth the investment.
