ONLINE JAMS | Lisbon Irish Session Under Quarantine | FREE

ONLINE JAMS | Lisbon Irish Session Under Quarantine | FREE

In olden times, on any given boring Monday night, you could find a bunch of talented locals churning out some traditional Irish tunes at O’Gilin’s, our favorite (and the oldest) Irish pub in Lisbon.

Oh, how times have changed. O’Gilin’s has shut its doors indefinitely in the name of hygiene and peace. St. Patrick’s day 2020 in Lisbon was basically cancelled. And “the best pint of Guinness in town” has become but a sweet memory…

Luckily though, the lads and lassies behind Lisbon Irish Session won’t let a global pandemic keep them down. For the last few Mondays, they have been using their modern technology, violins, guitars, flutes, a bit of Irish luck, and the sheer power of will to keep the music alive.

Check out their Facebook page and Youtube channel to hear some defiance, Irish style. Updated roughly every Monday night, as per tradition.

Apr 5 @ 10:00 – 17:00
CANCELLED | WEEKLY | FARMER'S MARKET | "LX Rural" at LX Factory | Alcantara | FREE @ LX Factory | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Eating at McDonald’s does not make you a bad person. Your ancestors have done it for generations, and you can always opt for just lettuce. But sometimes you just want something a little more natural and less controversial, if only to avoid those awkward dinner-party conversations.
In comes LX Rural, the new farmer’s market brought to you by LX Factory, the hippest (or freshest?) mini-Brooklyn this side of the Atlantic.
Here’s what they tell us:
“From the countryside to the city, from generation to generation, a rare market emerges. A market of freshness, quality and value.
Wake up early on Sunday and bring the family to the Rural Lx!
Come and meet the producers of traditional, sustainable and biological agriculture. Savor the products of the time. Come and taste the homemade bread, the preserves, the fresh vegetables, the sausages (thank Jesus!), the honey … and take the tradition and art to your table!
Indulge yourself in this market of colors and flavors of the field!”
The market is open to producers from all over Portugal, and is sure to make your Sunday hangover, if not better, healthier.

Apr 5 @ 10:00 – 19:00
Weekly | MARKET | Craft & Design | Estrela | FREE @ Jardim da Estrela | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

This is probably the most relaxed craft market in town, thanks to its position in the tranquil and beautifully cared-for Jardim da Estrela. It’s also surprisingly diverse and offers more than your average home-made soaps and ankle bracelets. We can’t guarantee she’ll be there every time, but we once saw a woman here selling one-of-a-kind, perfectly creepy oversized papier-mâché dolls, for example.

The first weekend of every month, except January.

Monthly | STAR GAZING | Half Price at the Planetarium | Belém | 2.50€ @ Planetário Caloeste Gulbenkian | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

The Gulbenkian Planetarium in Belém invites you to view your insignificance in the face of the universe for half the regular price the first Sunday of every month, and for free if you are between the ages of 4 and 12 or older than 64.
Go enjoy some cosmic science and be humbled. NOTE: The Cosmos ticket office is closed for lunch from 12 to 13h30.
More deets here.
NOTE II: Take headphones with you if you plan to listen to the show in anything other than Portuguese. The planetarium supplies them, but they’re mighty uncomfortable.

And here’s an intergalactic throwback.

O’Gilin’s first opened its doors in 1995, is the first Irish pub in Lisbon, has a great house band, claims to have “the best pint of Guinness in town,” and does have the best nachos in town. It also usually hosts a bi-weekly Sunday Quiz Night.

Right now, however, for the sake of humankind, O’Gilin’s doors are shut indefinitely. And, while this means you can’t try their Guinness, hear their band, or munch down on their nachos, you can still geek out every other Sunday night if you have a wifi connection.

CANCELLED | WEEKLY | BreakBeat Sundays at MusicBox | Cais do Sodré | TBD @ Musicbox | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

From MusicBox, the organizers:
“Breakbeat is a widely used rhythm in funk, hip-hop or bass music, characterized by being unpredictable and contrary to the usual 4/4, resulting in a much more energetic cadence.”
So, if you find yourself stranded on Pink Street on a Sunday night and looking for a much more energetic cadence, you know where to go. The BreakBeat night actually starts at 1 am, but you know how these digital calendars are.

ENTRY: TBD (usually a beer or two).

WEEKLY | DANCE WORKSHOP | Aulas Dança Oriental | Anjos | 8-25€ @ Anjos70 | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Belly dancing, aka Raks Sharki, aka oriental dance (sorry, self-proclaimed Americans) is both hot and not easy.

And Ana Moreira, self-proclaimed oriental dancer, knows this.

Ana wants to teach you to belly dance.

Here’s how Ana describes her weekly Monday night dance class on belly dancing:
“It is currently practiced by women from all over the world, and of all ages, a dance in which various parts of the body are worked in isolation and that promotes physical well-being, harmony, and self-esteem. It is a dance characterized mainly by the hip and belly movements, alternately wavy and accentuated, to which may be added some props, such as veils, canes, sword, among others.
The songs used have a characteristic sound that transports us to the Arab world.
It is a happy and relaxed dance.
Of women and for women.”

But boys are welcome too — if they got the belly, that is.

Bring your belly and transport to the Arab world with Ana.

Ana adds:
“Material needed-
Comfortable clothing, a scarf to tie at the waist, and a good mood. Classes are done without shoes, but socks or sneakers are recommended for protection only.”

8€ per session.
25€ for a month.

ON HOLD | Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the best market in Lisbon is on hold indefinitely.

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

Apr 7 @ 19:30 – 20:45
to May 12 | TUESDAY ONLINE DONATION YOGA

There’s a global pandemic out there, people, and so it has become increasingly more difficult to not lose one’s sh.t.
One thing that’s helped people not lose their sh.t over the centuries, however, is yoga.

Rachael McGill is a Yoga Alliance RT200 trained teacher who has been practicing yoga for the last sixteen years, and teaching it for the last six.

Rachel’s here to help, and here’s what she says about Tuesday nights:
“Online classes will take a little bit of getting used to, but the yoga will be the same – let’s give it a go and work it out together. At the end of the class, you’re welcome to stay online for an extra 30 minutes with me and any other participants who want to share anything/have a general chat.
How it works:
– email me at [email protected] to register, at least one hour before the first class you want to come to.
– I’ll send you a link and instructions to join the class(es). You just need to go to the Zoom website, click on ‘join a meeting’ and put in the code I give you.
– Find a quiet, private space and set up your computer so your camera sees as much of your body as possible (that needs the camera to be 2-3 meters away). If you don’t have space to do that, don’t worry, just put it where you can. If you don’t have a yoga mat, just have something soft for your knees.
– You can pay your donation after your first class, either for just that class or (preferably, to avoid lots of small transfers) for a block of 4 or 8 classes – just let me know when you’ve paid and how many it was for. I will send you my bank details for you to transfer payment (anyone joining us from the UK I have options to pay in £). You choose how much to pay. If you miss a class it can just roll over to the next one.

Classes are taught in English. The focus is on alignment, safety, and fun, on giving all your joints and muscles a work-out that can be as gentle or as challenging as you need it to be.”

MUSIC | AtYourHome | FREE (Donations Welcome)

Music is life.
Everybody knows that.
But whenever the proverbial sh.t hits the proverbial fan, it seems that toilet paper becomes life. So musicians get hit pretty hard. And the fans get hit too…

If you are a fan of music and have enough toilet paper, “online music magazine curated by musicholics” Where The Music Meets has a nifty alternative for going to a live gig. They call it At Your Home, and here’s what they say:

“Due to this situation, many musicians and music promoters are struggling to make their living. The amount of canceled shows and festivals drains life from the music industry but also from live music consumers.

Where the Music Meets launches At Your Home platform in an attempt to give some love back to the musicians and at the same time helping to fight the cause. Every day we will broadcast live music shows recorded directly from musicians houses. No matter the technology. No matter the production. No matter the genre. No matter the projection of each act. We are all in this together.

Donations will be accepted during the shows and directed to the artists themselves. Also, a portion of those donations will be given to Project Open Air, to help in the matter of working on medical devices battling the COVID-19 virus (such as open-source ventilators), in orfer to have a fast and easy solution that can be reproduced and assembled locally worldwide.

Shows will happen every day until we get out of this situation.”

ONLINE JAMS | Lisbon Irish Session Under Quarantine | FREE

In olden times, on any given boring Monday night, you could find a bunch of talented locals churning out some traditional Irish tunes at O’Gilin’s, our favorite (and the oldest) Irish pub in Lisbon.

Oh, how times have changed. O’Gilin’s has shut its doors indefinitely in the name of hygiene and peace. St. Patrick’s day 2020 in Lisbon was basically cancelled. And “the best pint of Guinness in town” has become but a sweet memory…

Luckily though, the lads and lassies behind Lisbon Irish Session won’t let a global pandemic keep them down. For the last few Mondays, they have been using their modern technology, violins, guitars, flutes, a bit of Irish luck, and the sheer power of will to keep the music alive.

Check out their Facebook page and Youtube channel to hear some defiance, Irish style. Updated roughly every Monday night, as per tradition.

FREE.

ON HOLD | Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE
Apr 11 @ 08:00 – 18:00
ON HOLD | Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the best market in Lisbon is on hold indefinitely.

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

Weekly | MARKET | Montijo Antiques Fair | Montijo | FREE
Apr 11 @ 09:00 – 17:00
Weekly | MARKET | Montijo Antiques Fair | Montijo | FREE @ Praça da República, Montijo | Setubal | Portugal

Don’t feel like competing with tourists for used goods at Feira da Ladra? Take the ferry from Cais do Sodre to Montijo for €2.75 instead. The market runs every 2nd and last Saturday of the month. Good for a day of treasure hunting! Here’s the ferry schedule to make things easier.

Weekly | MARKET | Used and Antique Books | Chiado | FREE
Apr 11 @ 09:00 – 18:00
Weekly | MARKET | Used and Antique Books | Chiado | FREE @ Feira dos alfarrabistas do Chiado | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Feira dos Alfarrabistas (used book dealer fair) is a great place to break up the monotony of chain stores in Chiado and pick up something truly unique. Most books here are in Portuguese, but there are always gems in English and French and occasionally other languages. Several sellers also usually carry antique prints, old postcards, and maps. A very pleasant place to browse, and the prices are usually fairer than other markets.
