Ricardo Villalobos, stopping Sven Vath from jumping off a balcony, pigeons, parties and too-much-dancing
Sunday night at the Tivoli was amazing. I mean, AMAZING. Ricardo is the man. The vibe was amazing - 1,000 people going crazy. It was such a beautiful day on Sunday. Had a couple of beers on the roof of Fitzsimons before heading to YoCo's to play the Wii with Neilsies, Tiger and Mairead. It was one of those days where everything was building towards that evening. It was always going to be good. There was so much on around town, that Dublin was clearly just out dance and go crazy. And that's what happened.
We headed to the Tivoli at about 12 and it was pretty high-octane from the get go. Everyone was having so much fun. Bumped into McMorrow and Peanut, Chantelle, Fionntimes and loads of other people and everyone was having a really good time.
After that, we went to a party with Ricardo and a few others. Sven Vath was already there, so it was all a bit mad and surreal, but good fun. Loads of cool people from all over the gaff. The sun was up when me and Neilsies finally dragged ourselves out of the Coombe.
Yesterday I chilled. It was such a nice day though, and I kind of felt like I wasted the good weather, just sitting at home watching Family Guy and My Super Sweet Sixteen. But then again, I haven't had a weekend like that in Dublin for ages, just going out and chilling out the next day and talking about what happened the night before. It was so much fun. I'm away the next four weekends out of five, so sometimes it's just fun to wreck the gaff and then laze around in Dubtown.
As a result of such lazing around on the days after the nights before, my table-tennis has improved like mad. Beat Johnny B in an epic best of five battle, and my serve is pretty rocking too. Who dares to challenge me?
Here's a video I found that someone took @ the Tivoli. It only starts making sense at the 2 minute mark really:
What did other people get up to? I was meant to head to Spy at some stage, but the Tivoli was so rocking I just couldn't leave.
