The 2010 Irish Blog awards shortlists were announced last night and I'm delighted to say I've made it onto two of the (not-so) shortlists. I've been nominated in the Insure.ie Best Popculture Blog and the deStudio Best Music Blog categories along with a couple of dozen other nominees in each category. Each blog may receive only one nomination in total and I have until just after lunch tomorrow to decide for which category I'd like to be considered. I must admit that I'm a bit undecided about which category to go for. What do [...]

Sidecar Bar is lovely, and the fried chicken is totally scrumptious. We can't speak for [...]
