5 Glossy Things To Do This Weekend

Your GLOSSY GUIDE to the weekend is here. We’re planning trips to the THEATRE, a spot of SHOPPING and Friday night at HENNESSY’S LOST FRIDAYS


WHY? After 33 years as Artistic Director of the Gate Theatre, Michael Colgan is presenting his final farewell; a festival of plays by three of the most iconic writers in theatre – Samuel Beckett, Brian Friel and Harold Pinter. The line up includes Pinter’s The Dumb Waiter and One for the Road, Beckett’s First Love and Eh Joe and Friel’s The Yalta Game and Afterplay, as well as a selection of poetry and prose readings. The Dumb Waiter starts this week and is a humorous and provocative story of two hit men, told with Pinter’s unmistakable wit, as they wait in a basement for their next assignment.. Performance times this week are: Thursday 9 March – 9pm, Friday 10 March9pm, Saturday 11 March 9pm. We’re also booking ahead to see Sir Michael Gambon in Beckett’s Eh Joe that starts on Wednesday March 15 and is directed by Atom Egoyan. www.gatetheatre.ie, (01) 874 4045.

WHO? We’re indulging in some shopping at Brown Thomas as we want to see the new Rosie Huntington-Whiteley x PAIGE collection. Both Paige Adams-Geller and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have worked on the collaboration from concept to execution, inspired by a “Forever and Ever” theme, choosing the range of items as well as colour-ways, washes, details and fabrics. The collection includes skinny jeans, a bomber jacket, camisoles and a one-shoulder indigo jumpsuit. In short it’s the perfect mix of effortless pieces that can be dialled up or down. They are also available online www.brownthomas.com


HOW? Do you love Cadbury Crème Eggs as much as Grayson Glenmorris III – the president of the Crème Egg Society? Known to his fellow hunters as EGG, he is inviting Creme Egg fanatics to join him at Lock 6 on Canal Road, Dublin 6, where hunters will get to tuck into a three-course feast with some of the gooiest Creme Egg campfire classics ever created, including Creme Egg S’mores and Creme Egg hot chocolate. Tickets to the café are available to over 16’s from cremeegghuntinglodge.com and spaces are limited per sitting so booking is essential. The Cadbury Creme Egg Hunting Lodge will open for a limited time only until Saturday 4th March, with one evening sitting available daily from 6.30pm – 8.00pm.


WHEN? We’re heading to Royal Hibernian Academy for some cocktails, colour and creativity as Hennessy’s Lost Fridays return for 2017 with the first installment taking place on Friday (March 3) from 7pm.
