Suspended Coffees & Caring For Your Fellow Man

I initially saw this story making it’s way around facebook (and coming from a facebook page) but it obviously gained a bit of traction and was covered in the Independent a few days ago. Or perhaps it was vice versa. Sometimes it’s hard to know when to give money to someone who’s homeless, even if you do have spare change. I choose to give to buskers over those begging – no matter how unlikely or…

Cheap Lunches Dublin – Brother Hubbard

Brother Hubbard is a lovely wee spot. Their coffee is the bizness and the place looks amazing thanks to Dublin Design duo Design Goat.

how to: make a bicycle coffee cup-holder

Cycling to work in Dublin is great. The only tough thing about getting to work by bike, is that, unlike buses or trams or walking, it never really allowed one to drink coffee on the way.
