Dublin Diary: Our pick of the best events from March 27 to April 7

by Rachel Darcy

Celebrate your mum this Sunday, or the UK leaving Europe, or eat yourself into a sugar induced coma – here’s our pick of the best on in Dublin over the next fortnight.

UK Leaving drinks at Searson’s of Baggot Street

A pub on Baggot Street will be hosting a farewell party to the UK on Friday, complete with Tory and Theresa May themed cocktails.

Searson’s will be hosting the send-off from 8pm, with a live gig from The Backstop Boys, an EU supergroup that will perform a selection of hits from UK greats (even if the UK aren’t shifting from the EU until June!).

With free admission, there will also be a DJ set, special offer cocktails – including the Old Fashioned Tory, D.U.Pina Colada and Theresa Maytini created for the night – and the bar decked out for the night with EU balloons, EU bunting, and large cutouts of Boris, Nigel and Theresa for a memorable social media moment.

Getting into the spirit of the night, Searson’s staff will be decked out in EU blue and yellow too.

For more information, check out Searson’s on Facebook.

Bakeyard at Eat Yard

The legendary Eatyard will be turning into a sweet tooth’s haven for one weekend only as they launch Bakeyard, billed as the best bake sale you’ve ever been to.

Getting underway on April 6, vendors over the weekend include an exclusive partnership between Dublin Doughnut Company and Proper Order coffee to bring Drip & Donuts.

Acclaimed pastry chef Aoife Noonan will also be there on the day at the Bakes & Bubbles stand, serving old-school cakes with a twist – and a side of prosecco.

On April 7, The Cupcake Bloke will be there with his Afternoon G & Tea, offering a more breakfast vibe, while Nutshed, Bliss Bites and Oh Happy Treats will be on hand to over a range of raw and vegan sweet treats.

All regular Eatyard vendors will be there too, including Sweet Churros and Milkbar, with plenty of sweet delights all weekend.

For tickets and details, see Eatyard’s website. Entry is free, but first come first served. There are also €10 tickets on offer to guarantee your entry, with a treat from Bakes & Bubbles on arrival.

The ultimate Mother’s Day at Napper Tandy’s

This Mother’s Day, the ultimate George Michael tribute show will take to the stage at Napper Tandy’s on Merrion Row.

Norris Stephens – who is best known for his George Michael tribute – will entertain with a variety of songs from beloved acts such as George Michael, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Queen, Michael Bublé, Take That and much more.

It’s free entry to the venue on the night, but there is a special advance offer, perfect to treat mum with, as it comes with a two course meal and a glass of prosecco to take in the show with.
