Looking for something to do this weekend? James K has you sorted:
1) Makers & Brother's Pop-Up Shop, Dawson St. 
Their gorgeous bits and bobs that are usually only available online, are now offline - in a stunning space! "Special items for Christmas, beautifully functional objects from Vitra alongside seasonal chocolates from Bean & Goose. Nicely odd friends from our collection of Donna Wilson creatures or super tasty caramels from Stockholm's Pärlans Konfektyr. To top it all off, we are delighted to offer Ireland’s premier selection of Aesop products gathered around our beautiful granite sink made by our new neighbour Ray."

2) Dún Laoghaire Christmas Festival until Jan 8th 
Expect stalls of delish food, Santa and his elves, carousels & loads more. Gorge little day out. More info here: http://dunlaoghaireonice.com/home/  
3) Our Table, Temple Bar 
Eat delicious food and help highlight the problems with direct provision. Based at Project Arts Centre in Temple Bar until the end of 2016, the pop-up café is a first step towards a permanent Our Table restaurant. The café serves a range of delicious drinks, savoury pastries and sweet treats from 10-4pm, Monday to Friday. It will also provide paid employment, training and links to future employment.

4) Echoes and Reflections Exhibition, RHA 
Fancy a lazy walk around a museum, taking in some nice art? David Crone RHA, this retrospective exhibition Echoes and Reflections held in his seventy- ninth year, can only hope to scratch the surface of a remarkable body of work. His work is all about cities in Ireland - very dreamy. More info: http://www.rhagallery.ie/exhibitions/echoes-and-reflections/
5) Toasties @ The Pepper Pot 
OK so it's no secret that I'm MAD for the Pepper Pot. Well, they've started making their own sourdough and are making toasties with it. The black pudding one with farmhouse cheese is INSANE. Go get 'em while you can.
