The one thing that has been a wee bit scarce so far this summer is the sun, but it was shining in Hadskis in Commercial Court thanks to Lidl Northern Ireland who brought the flavours of the Iberian Peninsula to the restaurant courtesy of its new range Sol&Mar.

The Portugese and Spanish tapas went down a treat and were perfectly complimented by the Spanish vino with top tips from wine expert Peter Wilson.

Summertime is festival time and in East Belfast from 25 to 27 July its will be the turn of the third Wilgar Rock & Blues Festival taking place in the massive marquee at Dundela Football club. It was launched in style at Horation Todds with a taster gig featuring Rab McCullough, The Late 2s, Blues Direct and Tree Home but this is not just a festival for grown ups as there will be lots for the kids too.

The latest reincarnation of the Merchant Hotel’s Rooftop Garden has a Hamptons theme, the Hamptons being the luxurious part of Long Island where the rich and famous in the States choose to have their holiday homes, so it was the ideal venue to celebrate American Independence Day. With appropriately theme canapés and cocktails you could have been forgiven for thinking your yacht was moored at the end of the pier.
