Things to do in Dublin; Hunter's Weekend Picks

Love is in the air.....but sure isn't it always?  Lots of romantic themed stuff happening around town but if you refuse to get involved in the Valentines/ Hallmark celebrations you can still enjoy the weekend without a love heart in sight! Des Bishop is back in Vicar Street on Sunday night with his "Grey Matters" Show and there's more....   Music: Mr Scruff at the Button Factory Mr. Scruff is a multi talented man.. a DJ, Producer & Cartoonist and Tea Connoisseur. He sells his very own brand of Tea online. Which is rather nice by all accounts. Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.56.57 But tonight he'll be stepping aside from the tea leaves to play one of his epic sets this evening in Button Factory and music fans will be in for a treat.. Andy Carthy aka Mr. Scruff plays across the board, flitting between soul, funk, hip hop, jazz, reggae, latin, african. And here's a little something he made earlier..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MS_CLIF1h-o Tickets here: http://buttonfactory.ie/1202-mr-scruff-keep-it-unreal/   Theatre: Made in China  The Viking Theatre is a little gem of a place  which is situated above The Sheds Pub in Clontarf,  so you can enjoy a pint of plain with your arts! Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 14.47.54 Currently running in the upstairs theatre  is "Made In China"  which has been described by one of it's leading men as  " When The Three Stooges' collides with 'Love/Hate'.  It's opened to rave reviews and stars Neil Fleming alongside two Northside boys Rex Ryan & Edwin Mullane  who together have set up the The Corps Ensemble - the company behind the production. It's on nightly at 8:00pm.

The Facebook page also says there'll be live music, yoga and a screening of Love Actually....wait .....but it's not Christmas? https://www.facebook.com/smithfieldmarketfair/   Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 15.04.45 Finally, if you're on the look out for love or just a hook up, the Bernard Shaw are holding a singles night this Saturday 13th for anyone with a Tinder app on their phone. They'll be encouraging people to  get chatting in person instead of online. Not entirely sure how they're going to achieve this ..but we reckon the advertised slow jamz and discounted Prosecco will definitely help. https://www.facebook.com/events/1517247758570645/ Happy V'day y'all <3
