Hey y'all, hope I'm not betraying the spirit of the group by suggesting something with such naked self-interest. If so, let me know and I'll delete this.
My name's Jim, I'm from DC, I've been living in Dublin since 2007, and I'm a comedian. On Tuesday night I'll be performing my one-man show at the Vintage Room in the Workman's Club on the quays.
It's part of the 10 Days In Dublin Festival, which I highly recommend, and you can book tickets right here: http://10daysindublin.ticketsolve.com/shows/873499548/events
The Bison Bar is right next door, and not only do they have a fantastic whiskey selection, they also serve some halfway decent pulled pork. It's a great place for a drink or two afterwards; I know I'll be in there drinking off the stage jitters.
