Just another Thursday: Alternatives to #ArthursDay

This Thursday does not belong to Diageo, it belongs to you

So on Arthur’s Eve, I was thinking that it may be a good idea to have some alternatives to a day that’s focused on maximising profits, consumption of Guinness and general rubbish. So here’s a list of some things you can try

  1. The IFI documentary series is on, some good films, including the Irish premier of “The Great Hip Hop Hoax”.
  2. If you want to have a pint, but don’t want to line Diageo’s pockets, pay a visit to Against the Grain, for real Irish craft beer
  3. Why not get stuck into a bit of yoga, detox for the body and mind, and it feel deadly. You can check out classes here or check out online classes.
  4. The National Gallery of Ireland is open until 8.30pm on a Thursday. So why not go check out Jack B Yeats, Picasso and more.
  5. Bake it at home and pop a movie on. Love Lorraine Pascale, so here’s some of her recipes.
  6. Get your Origami on!
  7. There’s loads of festival on around the country (please note, author does not consider the two Guinness events listed as festival). You can also check out http://www.culturefox.ie
  8. Plot the Diageo downfall by brewing your own.
  9. If it’s raining, you can always try one of these
  10. If it’s a nice evening you can check out some of these adventure spots from around Dublin and Wicklow before it gets dark.
