Weekend Diary

Farewell to March and hello to the weekend. We help you make some plans…

Coffee Culture

 We’re total coffee addicts and have even googled caffeine IVs in an 80% jokey way. This article from the Irish Times of the ten best coffee shops in Ireland is the foundation for our new to-do list. And we’re adding Coppa to the map. The gallery café for the RHA serves incredible espresso brownies for when you need a double hit. ‘Nuff said.

War Horse

Didn’t get tickets to Kate Bush? Or did you? Because in that instance we’ll be waiting outside your door to intercept the postman/postwoman for the next few months. If verified by visa thwarted your mass Wuthering Heights-wailing ambitions can we recommend live-action sensation War Horse in the Bord Gáis? We caught up with the lead actor Lee Armstrong just before the premiere Wednesday night. Read our interview here.

Muppets Most Wanted

It is no great secret that the denizens of the online desk here in IMAGE HQ are fans of The Muppets. This week Roisin even penned a tribute to Miss Piggy. The 2011 movie reminded us why we will never forget Kermit and co and this weekend we’re settling in with a popcorn deal to catch us some Muppets Most Wanted. This time it’s an international romp, Tina Fey drops by and there may even be some scenes in Ireland itself…

Mother’s Day

We’re pouring over the latest IMAGE Magazine – look at those florals and try to resist… We’re also running a subscription offer for the weekend that’s in it if you want to buy mammy the type of present that keeps giving (for twelve months). Treat your discerning mother by clicking here. Or you could buy her tickets to see novelists Emma Donoghue tomorrow and Anita Shreve next week…

The Ferocious Mingle Marcade

We’ve been hearing so many good things about the Ferocious Mingle Marcade that we’re determined this is the weekend we discover what all the effusive talk is about. Open Thursday to Sunday 11am to 6pm every week, this Camden Street based market promises bric-a-brac, old school movies and something entirely different from the usual high street Saturday. For more deets.
