Hi all!

I had some customer related problems today and that’s why what was planned as an early release time of this Dublin Event Guide turned out to be VERY late. Apologies. There are some more explanations in the Joerg’s Picks section! Check it out.

The Dublin Event Guide for Free Events, grows and grows, faster and faster and this week we all together achieved 15,000 Likes on Facebook. I hope that includes you, but it also includes lots of people – it seems – that have not subscribed to the weekly e-mail magazine, because for the first time ever, the Facebook Likes are now more than the Dublin Event Guide subscribers. Interesting!

While others (amazingly even event publications!) take summer breaks, the Dublin Event Guide will be reliably with you week after week and will tell you all about the free events in Greater Dublin.

This weekend there will be the Mini Maker Faire, the Festival of Curiosity, the Bray Summer Fest and the Dublin Flea Market. But that is just the start!!

If you are a Gmail user, you might have realised that Google has force-introduced new sub-Inboxes for you. There is a “Social” Inbox and a “Promotional” Inbox now in addition to the “Primary” Inbox. This doesn’t make sense to me and I while I would appreciate the OPTION, I have a problem with the change being forced on me. If you want to undo the change, log in to your Gmail account and click on the “+” next to the Inbox tabs. Untick the “Social” and “Promotional” Inbox and you are back to the previous set up. If you leave the other Inboxes in place, I can NOT tell you in which the Dublin Event Guide will appear! I have no control over it.

The spell-checker is another service that was provided by Google and is not working anymore. (I use TinyMCE as an editor of the backend application for the Dublin Event Guide.) I am not sure if I will be able to find a replacement. Until then, please forgive me if I type badly and make mistakes.

The Dublin Event Guide is full of free events and receiving this weekly e-mail magazine is always completely free. It is sent to nearly 15,000 people, and it would be great if more would join. With a population of about 1 mio in Dublin, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find another 5,000 people or even more that are interested in free events. To help them, I need your help. Please tell all the people you meet where you hear about all the free events and spread the word about the Dublin Event Guide for Free Events. Your friends (old and new), families and colleagues can subscribe (for free) at www.dublineventguide.com and LIKE the Facebook group at www.facebook.com/DublinEventGuide Click on LIKE yourself if you haven’t yet done so and get everyone to Subscribe.

I keep stressing that the Dublin Event Guide is free and that is indeed the case. To pay for the bills for sending it every week, I need about EUR 170 and if you like the Dublin Event Guide, it would be great if you could help me with 25 cent per week (or EUR 12 per year). There is no obligation on you to help and you will still get the weekly newsletter even if you decide not to help with a small contribution. But if you like getting a nice summary of all these free events every week and if this is valuable to you, I would be grateful if I received your small contribution. Thanks a lot! Go to www.perfectresults.info/donate.htm either for a once-off donation of EUR 12 or more if you can, or choose the subscription option on that page to give EUR 12 per year without having to worry about it again. Thanks!!!

And continue also to help by ALWAYS using the ad links in the Dublin News Section and the ads in the Dublin Event Guides when you buy/order goods. If you buy goods immediately after clicking on a link/ad that you find in this e-zine/newsletter (Groupon, LivingSocial, Amazon, Book Depository, LastMinute etc), you help the Dublin Event Guide everytime. This is how it works: The company you buy from (Groupon, Amazon, Living Social, Book Depository etc) registers that you came to them via a link from the Dublin Event Guide and they show their appreciation by giving a small commission (5-8%) to the Dublin Event Guide. This might only be 30 cent a go, but if you did that for all online purchases and if lots of people used it, then it could make a big dent into the EUR 170 needed. Use these links as often as possible it doesn’t cost you a cent and you help big time!

Have an event-full week,

–Joerg

Feel good slot

The “Feel Good Slot” at this place in the Dublin Event Guide is to share some inspirational, motivational or thought provoking quotes, stories or video clips. You wonder why I added this section to this e-zine? If your week was great, you might not need it, but most of us had some challenging moments in the last week and this section is for the people that want to remind that despite all, life is great and it is important to be alive.

I found a video clip this week by coincidence and it absolutely fascinated me. So much that I have to share it with you. It is a beautiful song in many aspects and is perfectly performed by amazing singers, but on top of that, the performers in that clip show outstanding cooperation and team work. Awe inspiring, I would say!

The song is called “When I’m gone” and is also known as the “Cup Song”. It is from the movie “Pitch Perfect”, an American music comedy film directed by Jason Moore and is performed in the film by Anna Kendrick.

Have a look at this cover version of the song and be blown away: www.youtube.com/watch?v=6y1aOg_UO_A

(In case you want to compare, the original of the song scene from the film is here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KcaFAHEgUA )

Support

This part is important to “keep the show on the road”:

Last week George K, Tony B and Peter B were the great people who helped with a crucial donation! Thanks a lot! All the support is much needed. Do you want to be part of the “wonderful people list” as well? Just a small donation and you will join the ranks of the much appreciated Dublin Event Guide supporters.
Your help is absolutely needed too to ensure that you and everyone else will continue to get the Dublin Event Guide every week. The cost for sending the weekly newsletter is approx. EUR 170 per month and your EUR 12 per year will ensure that I will be able to pay the bills.
Has the Dublin Event Guide helped you to find events that you otherwise wouldn’t have known about, or have you saved money by finding great free events? Then go to www.perfectresults.info/donate.htm and give something back!

I appreciate ANY help: EUR 12 would be great (that’s just 25 cent per week!), but even if it is just the price of 2 pints it will help.

You can donate online by following this link to the PayPal&CreditCard donation page www.perfectresults.info/donation.htm If you want to transfer your donation directly to my account, just send a mail to dublineventguide@gmail.com and I will send you the details.

Joergs Picks

This section is intended to provide some help in picking and choosing from the huge number of events by sharing with you what I will/might or would do. This is not a “best of…” list and if an event is not listed here, it by no means implies that the event is not interesting. Instead my “picks” are just based on my personal preferences. All events mentioned here are described in detail further down.

First of all apologies for the super late sending. I explained it – to a certain degree – in a Facebook Post: All was looking fine until a day job related issues needed my full attention for a number of hours because a customer had a technical emergency. When I got back I still needed to do more work on this week’s newsletter. I know that the Friday entries are no use to you now, but there are still 7 other days that you can enjoy and on top of that most of the Friday events were alreay in last week’s Dublin Event Guide.

And here are my Picks for this weekend: You will definitely find me at the Maker Faire on Saturday at the Science Gallery and in Trinity. Yes, it is a slightly geeky event, but I like making and creating things and you will meet super bright people there with smart ideas. If you haven’t seen the current Science Gallery exhibition check it out. It is really good!

The Festival of Curiosity is also taking place this weekend and sounds interesting. If you have children, check out the Summer in Dublin event at Wolfe Tone Square. And if you don’t have children, then maybe the arty night event & market Nuit Blanche on Saturday from 23:00-04:00 is for you. I will try to get to it.

You want to watch some fun and are not afraid of colour? The Colour Dash on Saturday and the Rainbow Run on Sunday are for your. Not as a participant, but as a spectator.

Oh and there are lots of free Comedy events during the week and also on Sunday (Check out the Comedy Show TV Recording at 11:30!) and there are gigs and lots more! Enjoy!

The Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) focuses on free events, but we all fully understand that not everything can be free in life and if you run a non-free event (or sell a cool product), I am sure it would help you if you could let the 14,000+ Dublin Event Guide readers know about your event or product. If you can make a few tickets (product samples) available for the Dublin Event Guide readers, I can help you and promote your event (product) in the context of a competition. Cost to you? Minimal, often even completely free! Just contact me on dublineventguide@gmail.com and we can discuss the details. It is all very simple! ;-)

Street Performance World Championship Result

Did you go to the Street Performance World Championship? And maybe you voted for one (or more) of the performers? But did you hear the result of the vote and the decision on who won the competition?

The overall winner are the Irish performers Lords of Strut. I can’t tell you if they were good or not, because despite the fact that I saw most performances, it is the 3rd or 4th year that I did not see the one act that finally wins! I HOPE they were really good and that they didn’t win just because of where they come from.

Second place was Pancho Libre from Mexico and he was definitely outstanding! In general I missed this year the magic element and the juggling. It was represented better in previous years. There was definitely a stronger focus on acrobatics this year. Maybe next year a better balance will be found again. www.spwc.ie/news/irelands-lords-strut-are-crowned-world-champions

Riverdance World Record

It was not really possible to to fail reaching a new world record at last week’s Longest Riverdance Line World Record attempt, so the 1,693 dancers did achieve what they set out to do. But now there is a nice video available as well about their achievement and you can see it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rDbiiMjazw

Dublin Libraries & National Museum – Summer Programme for children

The Dublin Libraries and – separately – the different branches of the National Museum run different programmes / events in the summer for children. With the National Museums, these events are usually drop in classes and with the libraries in Dublin nearly always booking is required. If you have to entertain children over the summer check out www.museum.ie and the super slow library site www.dublincity.ie/RecreationandCulture/libraries/Events/Pages/all_events.aspx There are too many events to include them here week after week.

Opportunities

If you took the opportunity and started a new business recently (not more than approx. 6 months ago) and need a bit of support to let Dublin know about your new venture, talk to me. In this section I will feature new companies every now and then. I had to give it a rest for a while due to some technical challenges, but I seem to have mastered them more or less by now. ;-)

Exhibitions

Based on your feedback, I have decided to do the following with the Exhibition section in this newsletter from now on: I will provide you with a link to a near-comprehensive listing of exhibitions provided by www.visualartists.ie . For me to list all exhibitions would only be doubling their good work and would be an inefficient use of my resources. The link is visualartists.ie/category/listings/dublin/

On top of that I will every now and then include here a small selection of exhibitions that either are not mentioned in the Visual Artist listing or are note-worthy to be mentioned separately.

The Unseen Lithuania

Farmleigh House, Phoenix Park, Dublin 8

To celebrate the Lithuanian presidency of the EU, Farmleigh House invites to “The Unseen Lithuania”, a photography exhibition by talented aerial photographer Marius Jovaisa.

PhotoIreland Festival

01-31 July

Dublin (various locations)

The PhotoIreland Festival takes place throughout July and there will be lots of exhibitions. The website www.photoireland.org/ lists all events, but a few of them, I will include here over the next few weeks;

Vodafone Comedy Hut Nut

19:30 – 22:45, Fri 26 Jul

Iveagh Gardens, Harcourt Street, Dublin 2

The Vodafone Comedy Festival is taking place this weekend in Iveagh Gardens. The festival is definitely not a free event with tickets for each of the 36x 1.5-hour comedy slots going for a ticket price of EUR 20-28. EUR 56 for an evening (approx. 3 hrs) of comedy seems steep to me, but I am no expert! The programme is here www.vodafonecomedy.com/programme/ and I will let you decide.

The reason why I am mentioning the Vodafone Comedy Festival is because they do also have a free programme in Iveag Gardens: The Vodafone Nut Hut is providing the folloiwng free events:

Fri 26 July
19:30-21:00 Stand Up and Answers with Jarlath Regan & Guests
21:45-22:45 Stand Up in the Nut Hut

Cancer Society Colour Dash 5km

10:00, Sat 27 Jul

Phoenix Park, Dublin 8

A Cancer Society Fundraiser takes place on Sunday in Phoenix Park and sounds strikingly similar to the Rainbow Run in Dun Laoghaire on Sunday. It is the Cancer Society Colour Dash and is sponsored by Crown Paints. It seems that the two colourful runs are very similar. The fees are similar, the FAQs are nearly identical. Participation is not free (EUR 30 per adult), but registration is closed now (In Dun Laoghaire you can still register on the day.) 100% of the funds raised for the Colour Dash will go to the Irish Cancer Society.

Watching the event and participating in the post-run (the run is not timed!) entertainment is free, but be prepared to be covered in paint powder anyway.

ILLUSION: Nothing is as it seems – Science Gallery

10:00 – 18:00, Sat 27 Jul

Science Gallery, Pearse Street, TCD, Dublin 2

If you go to the Maker Faire this week, you might as well check out that great Science Gallery Exhibition: The exhibition will run from 12 July-29 Sept, but I won’t be able to remind you every week, so you better go early. :-) Admission is free.

The exhibition is all about Illusions and it is a “perception-shattering insight into the human mind, playfully combining the techniques used by magicians and explored by psychologists.”

More than 20 installations will deceive your eyes (and ears) and will show you that what we perceive is often radically different from the reality. You will find impressive and amazing things, but nothing will be boring! The exhibition is suitable for all ages, so bring your children or – if you don’t have any – just bring yourself.

I have seen nearly every Science Gallery exhibition and I would say this is definitely one of the best.

ILLUSION was curated by psychologist, author and magician Richard Wiseman, and was researched by deception artist Paul Gleeson and a large group of mediators are available in the gallery to explain all the things that you see (or hear) to you.

Have a look at the website below to see an outline on what is on show. I strongly recommend that you see the show and tell me afterwards what you thought about it: dublineventguide@gmail.com (During the week (Tues-Fri) the exhibition is open until 20:00 and from 12:00 and on Sat+Sun; 12:00-18:00).

Mini Maker Faire

10:00 – 18:00, Sat 27 Jul

Science Gallery, Pearse Street, TCD, Dublin 2

The second Dublin Mini Maker Faire is taking place in the Science Gallery and on the Physics Lawn at Trinity College Dublin this Saturday.

The Dublin Mini Maker Faire brings together makers, crafters, and DIY-enthusiasts of all ages to share and showcase their inspiring creations to over 5,000 visitors. It unites, inspires, informs, and entertains a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their back gardens, garages and sheds and it is a great event. I was at the Mini Makers Faire last year and am really looking forward to this year’s event.

This year’s faire will be even bigger and will feature some of Ireland’s most talented makers. Visitors can learn how to make their own guitar effects pedal, pet a giant (but friendly) robotic spider, watch a real-life iron forge in action, find out about internet-connected timelapse photography, and even build the ultimate paper airplane before flying it with a purpose-built pressurised launcher.

Other highlights are:
A tent full of 3D printers
Robots
A pair of wireless, force-sensitive Irish dancing shoes
The Empire State Building made of Lego

The Dublin Mini Maker Faire is a free event that is part of The Festival of Curiosity, organised by a team from Science Gallery, Science Hack Day Dublin, NUIM MakerSoc and TOG Hackerspace.

Maybe a bit geeky but definitely recommended – geeky is cool! :-)

ILLUSION: Nothing is as it seems – Science Gallery

12:00 – 18:00, Sun 28 Jul

Science Gallery, Pearse Street, TCD, Dublin 2

If you go to the Maker Faire this week, you might as well check out that great Science Gallery Exhibition: The exhibition will run from 12 July-29 Sept, but I won’t be able to remind you every week, so you better go early. :-) Admission is free.

The exhibition is all about Illusions and it is a “perception-shattering insight into the human mind, playfully combining the techniques used by magicians and explored by psychologists.”

More than 20 installations will deceive your eyes (and ears) and will show you that what we perceive is often radically different from the reality. You will find impressive and amazing things, but nothing will be boring! The exhibition is suitable for all ages, so bring your children or – if you don’t have any – just bring yourself.

I have seen nearly every Science Gallery exhibition and I would say this is definitely one of the best.

ILLUSION was curated by psychologist, author and magician Richard Wiseman, and was researched by deception artist Paul Gleeson and a large group of mediators are available in the gallery to explain all the things that you see (or hear) to you.

Have a look at the website below to see an outline on what is on show. I strongly recommend that you see the show and tell me afterwards what you thought about it: dublineventguide@gmail.com (During the week (Tues-Fri) the exhibition is open until 20:00 and from 12:00 and on Sat+Sun; 12:00-18:00).

Dublin Sketchers – Sunday Meet-up

There are some hugely talented people among them and it is a great idea to meet up with others who have the same hobby. Find out on their website where they will meet and join them if you do some sketching/drawing yourself. I know that the Dublin Sketchers often use the Dublin Event Guide to find interesting free events and I am delighted to be able to help!

This is odd

Please note: This section contains observations taken from the world I live in that strike me as odd. I express my personal opinion and you might not share it. If you are easily offended by opinions that are not identical with your own, please don’t read this section. ;-)

Japanese Mini-Food – Just odd!

A friend of mine wrote this week on Facebook: “I go on YouTube just to watch a music video and 5 hours later, there I am, watching a tutorial how to talk to a giraffe.” ;-) Something like that happened to me during the week and imagine what I found? A video about the oddest Japanese “food preparation”. It is odd and fascinating at the same time. Turn powder into chips, a hamburger and ketchup! You have to see it! :-) www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8gJOCwBuFc

Done for another week! And there are some really interesting events in this week’s list. Have a look and share them with your friends!

Have an event-full weekend and week,
