After a hectic week with events for clients including Dress for Success Dublin and the Irish Research Council, all of a sudden it’s Friday again! The silly season is in full swing, and this week we’ve had members of #TeamAlice out on the town with a long-standing Alice pal, indulge in prosecco-fuelled painting, and transported back to the roaring Twenties. It’s #WhatTickledAlice!
Out & About
Niamh embraced all the notions Dublin has to offer last weekend as she and some friends went to ‘Painting and Prosecco‘ in The Jar on Wexford Street. A two hour long session that includes painting a picture – guided by a teacher (thank god) – a couple of glasses of prosecco, followed by some pizza! She thoroughly enjoyed herself and her painting actually wasn’t the worst in the class – even if she does say so herself!
They then went on to Cassidy’s bar at the top of Camden Street which is just PURE CLASS on a Sunday night. They have a live trad band in and it’s the best. Couldn’t recommend it enough – it helped that she had the day off on Monday also.
Emily went along to see The Great Gatsby in the Gate Theatre during the week, and could not recommend it enough. It was brilliant fun being transported right into Jay Gatsby’s mansion – the whole production was so immersive and energetic.
On Wednesday, Dress for Success Dublin held a fundraising ‘Power Lunch’ in Marco Pierre White in Donnybrook, with Darragh and Martina representin’! A great afternoon was had, especially the entertainment by Mary Byrne of X-Factor fame!
On the Plate
Martina, Emily and Niamh had a catch up with #TeamAlice OG John Smith on Saturday. They went to Hey Donna on Dame Street for food and it did not disappoint! The charred cauliflower and pork belly were particular highlights. Emily also went for a family meal to Trocadero during the week to celebrate her brother’s 40th. They have a reasonable set menu for December, and she enjoyed tasty cod on samphire with red pepper puree, and the dessert was particularly delish, a rich chocolate marquise with orange cream.
On the Screen
Emily isn’t as enamoured with Death and Nightingales as she was last week – she forgot how dialogue heavy it is, and quite disturbing too. She’ll still see it out to the end, though! On a lighter note she has been indulging in the odd episode of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, and is enjoying it – an easy way to unwind!
In the Earphones
We’re loving Spotify’s annual ‘Spotify Wrapped‘ feature, which shares statistics such as how many minutes of music you listened to throughout the year, your number one genre of music you listen to, etc. The results are always interesting / mortifying!
