Drag Brunch, Rathmines - Saturday
Taking place this Saturday, Pot Bellied Pig’s Drag Brunch makes its return to Rathmines. The second-to-last brunch in their summer series, Pot Bellied Pig’s brunch is hosted by glamourous queen Miss Taken, alongside Heiress Blackstone and Athena. The restaurant deem it an “all-singing, all-dancing and all-fabulous” event, which starts at 3pm. Tickets for the brunch include your choice of beer or prosecco, a dish from the brunch menu, and more. There will also be drink promotions and competitions on the day, which is sure to be a show-stopper. If you can’t make it this Saturday, there’ll be another brunch on August 11 and another in September so you don’t miss out.
10 HANDS Art Exhibition, Smithfield - Friday
Friday sees the start of 10 HANDS, a collaborative art exhibition at Ground Floor Gallery, at The Complex, Little Green Street in Smithfield. A joint project between five Dublin-based artists – Robyn Carey, Cian Ryan, Johnny Brennan, Gary Merrin and Nicole Kelly – admission to the exhibition is free and runs until 5pm on Saturday. 10 HANDS sees the five artists collaborate on a series of art prints, engaging themselves with the processes of silk screen printing as an art form. Despite the rise of digital matter in creative industries, the exhibition adopts a deliberate counter movement focus on traditional screen printing as a medium and process, with the show centred around five collaborative screen prints.
Dublin Goes Country, City Centre – Saturday & Sunday
For those looking for a city centre alternative to Longitude this weekend, a number of Country music-themed events are coming to the capital. Dublin Goes Country will run across a number of venues – including the Grand Social, the Underground and Smithfield Square – from July 14-15. Saturday will see the Grand Social and the Underground transformed into an authentic ‘honky-tonk’ as some of the best musicians Ireland has to offer, and some country stars from abroad, will take to the stage. On Sunday, Smithfield Square will play host to live music, a ‘Country market’, food and activities for kids, as well as a human rodeo, pony rides and square-dancing lessons. For further information, see Dublin Goes Country on Facebook.
