BIG NEWS! Tree Kisser is going on the road, to London & Dublin in March! First I’ll be spending a week in London with Chelsea, one of my favorite people in the world. We worked on “The Details” together (and another disastrous indie film years before that), and are in the process of creating a script that deals with European misadventures. Hence, I’m considering it a “research” trip so as not to feel too guilty about leaving all my Californian responsibilities behind. After London, I’m venturing solo to Dublin- for the entirely cliche purpose of experiencing St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland. I’ve always been neurotically obsessed with St. Patty’s, and as an Irish girl I’ve (with one glorious exception) always felt slightly let down by American celebrations. I’m sure I’ll end up spending the day surrounded by drunk American tourists, but hopefully at least the bartenders will be authentically Irish!
Fortunately my trusty vegan guide QuarryGirl has spent a lot of time in both of these magical places (especially London), but I would still love to hear advice/anecdotes from you Irish and British followers (I think there are a few of you!) about where to dine, drink, celebrate, and explore! In London I’ve heard Manna and Saf are not to be missed, and in Dublin the best I’ve heard is Cornucopia, but more advice would be much much appreciated! I’ve seen London hailed as the most vegan-friendly city in the world, but it’s hard to imagine anything being able to rival Los Angeles! I entirely hope to see this claim proven true.
I know a few things for sure, one being that I will absolutely have this breathtaking British cocktail (@Saf) in my mouth before the end of my trip:
…and also that I will absolutely be checking out London’s Secret Society of Vegans, which I’ve been hearing about for years.
In conclusion, I cannot contain my excitement enough to even write a logically organized blog post about this- hopefully I’ll eat enough food, take enough photos, and have enough adventures to entertain you for weeks on end upon my return!
(Yes, I’m posting this at a crazy hour because it’s not such a crazy hour across the Atlantic Ocean)
So- Suggestions? Cautionary tales? Offers to let me stay with you in Dublin because I still don’t have a place :)?
