Tired of the same old Mothers’ Day outings? This year try something that bit different and Bring Your Ma to Bingo in The George with Ireland’s favourite Bingo Caller, Shirley Temple Bar!
The parade is over and you want to party! From the George to Basebar, there’s lots to keep you entertained over the course of the evening.
Shirley Temple Bar’s weekly Bingo Show has been an integral part of the Dublin scene for years, and right now the George and Shirley are gearing up for the 700th outing of this gay institution.
One aspect of the scene has always perplexed me. It is commonplace to hear lesbians on any given night bemoaning the fact that the scene is so male orientated.

Pussy Wagon is the women’s night held in The George on the first Friday of every month. Sporting live performances, it has a different vibe from other lesbian nights out there and this fact, coupled with the varied set lists from the various DJs who have played there so far, makes for an excellent night out.
It’s been quite a while since our last round-up of what’s been happening here at Gaelick Towers. (Personally, I blame the hectic madness of Pride and the Civil Partnership Bill.) Let’s remedy that, shall we?
