The Bizarre Bloomsday Brunch & Brunch at Brother Hubbard

If you are not already subscribed to Happenings' newsletter, do yourself a favour and do it now. These guys organise pop up cultural events that make our city even more exciting. I've been a few times to their outdoor cinema screenings and really enjoyed them. They also do yoga classes in parks, gigs and other things that always sound exciting.

I don't know how it happened but I actually didn't get to buy a ticket for 'The Bizarre Bloomsday Brunch' before it sold out, and the funniest is that I mentioned it in my June events article. The event was part of Bloomsday festival and took place last Sunday.

I was so mad at myself but still decided to bring Mr. FFID and Ms. E to North Great Georges Street on Dublin's north side to have a look. This street is one of my favourites in Dublin and is proof that there are some real gems on the Northside too. The James Joyce Centre is there, which is a good excuse to come to have a look.

I took a few pictures while walking around and was very envious of the people who had secured themselves a ticket for the Bizarre Brunch and were sitting at the long tables.

The food was provided by the guys from Dublin Pop Up who impressed me a while ago at the surprising Secret Garden

There was a lovely atmosphere, music, a few food stalls and people dressed up for the occasion. You put bunting and vintage lampshades around and I just can't resist!

After a stroll around we headed to another gem on the north side of the city, Brother Hubbard (one of the first places I blogged about) for the most delicious brunch. 

The beans and pulled pork special for Mr. FFID...

Moroccan zalouk for Ms. E...

...and a pulled pork sandwich for yours truly.

Sundays on the Northside can be true bliss!
