Bored of listening to your mates go on and on about work in the pub? Grab a ticket to one of this week's most interesting Cardiff events and bond over something a bit more stimulating instead.
1. Watch 'All But Gone' @ The Other Room, Porters
Every Day: 1st - 14th April
Through the eyes of the young and old; the lovesick and alone; the delinquent and belligerent, 'All But Gone' peers deep inside the psyche for the truth behind our love and asks - what use is love when the mind fractures and fades? Is it our vice, or our only remedy? Matthew Trevannion’s brand-new play is the first production from The Other Room's new Artistic Director, Dan Jones.
Tickets cost £8 and are available here.
2. Learn how to make a perfect latte @ Little Man Garage
Selected dates: 12th, 18th, 19th & 25th April
Always fancied learning how to create beautifully instagrammable lattes, whilst discovering more about the provenance of your beans? Your coffee prayers will be answered with Little Man's incredible barista training session (for two).
Tickets cost £18 and are available here.
3. Catch a clever movie @ Dusty Knuckle - and quiz the director afterwards
Friday 13th April
Dusty Knuckle are hosting an exclusive season of thought-provoking and educational viewings at The Printhaus on Llandaff Road. The first film is "We Are Many" - the remarkable story of the global protest against the Iraq war (the biggest protest in history) and how it changed the world.
