Anything special happening in Dublin 29th/30th Oct

Hi locals

I'll be in Dublin next Monday/Tuesday. Monday is dedicated to IKEA <yawn>, and for that I get to do something 'touristy' on Tuesday morning.

Any ideas? I'm open to any suggestions particulary to any unusual events that are currently running during the day at any of the usual large dublin city centre venues.

Bryno, I've just read your post out to Hubby and his comment (with raised eyebrows) is "YOU COULDN'T spend all day in IKEA, could you???"

You are as obviously a secret enthusiast as he is :o))

His record is 130 minutes (but that was with a big list and a big car)

How would you feel about a flash mob?

God no Bean A. We drive to Dub on Monday so hopefully a few PM hours only in IKEA then off to dinner somewhere nice - no shortage of eateries (or tables for that matter on a monday night)

Lollymcd, I would love to watch it but would need a few jamesons to take part. I will check it out though and get back to you !!!!

That flashmob is actually tempting, and it does suit our dates. Feck, I'll just have to break into my Jameson stock !!!

Ha ha Bryno. You did ask for something unusual.

I would love to see that video and check out your dance moves :-)

They haven't come back to me yet, the organisers may be trying to find a decent leading role for me before they give me any details.

I have a tux on standby for when the call comes in.
