Many artists launch their exhibitions in large, purpose-built spaces where you dander round with a canape and cocktail in hand – but not Trevor J Brown. His latest collection, Roosting At CoCo, is at Belfast's Linenhall Street until next March.
While you are feasting on the fabulous food, your eyes will be feasting on the delicious canvases adorning the walls. And, trust me, you will want to keep coming back for more. Check out www.trevorj brown.com.
One of my favourite theatrical venues is the Market Place Theatre in Armagh, and one of the reasons is the entertainment on offer, not just on stage but in the bar too. It seems I am not alone in this opinion as OCS and Diageo have invested in the reopening of the Theatre Bar & Bistro so you can enjoy live music every Saturday without having to book tickets for a show.
Readers of this column will know of my love of bubbly, and the Merchant Hotel in Belfast has announced a partnership with one of the world's most sought-after champagnes, Ruinart.
Guests at the official unpopping heard that over the next year, 8,000 flutes of champers will be consumed in the five-star hotel. I'll do my best to help out.
