Temp Head - www WHEN it comes to

www WHEN it comes to rumps and lions – rugby players know their stuff. Just look at Jamie Heaslip – the rugby pro co-owns one of Dublin's trendiest steak houses, Bear. But it looks like new steak house Beeftro in Dundrum Town Centre is giving Jamie a run for his money.

Head chef Ryan Bell, formerly of Shanahan's on The Green, is serving up 30-day matured cuts of beef. And he's already had several of the Leinster lads in – Brian O'Driscoll, Isaac Boss, Devin Toner, Mike Ross and Richard Strauss are all fans of the Tomahawk steak.

www FOLLOWING on from the hugely successful staging of Samuel Beckett's All That Fall, Pan Pan Theatre Company is bringing another of the playwright's radio plays to the stage.

The audience are greeted by a huge skull on stage and speakers hang from the roof, as a series of events concerning a man called Henry, his family and the sea unfurl around them.

This unique and unusual show is well worth checking out.

www FORGET Ryan Gosling or Brad Pitt, when it comes to silver screen sexiness, there's nothing like a bit of Marlon Brando. And this month the good people at the Light House Cinema are bringing us a season of Brando's greatest films.

The season shows off Brando's impressive acting range; from Streetcar Named Desire to The Godfather, On The Waterfront and Last Tango In Paris.

The screen legend is known for his mastery of method acting. Fellas go see Apocalypse Now, Ladies – make it The Wild One.

www THERE'S nothing like Dublin's young and vibrant theatre crew – they dress well, wear their hearts on their sleeves and above all know how to throw the mother of all parties.

And as luck would have it, tomorrow night sees the launch of Dublin's Fringe Festival. Taking place in the Workman's Club on the quays this is sure to be a night filled with shots, sparkle and plenty of spectacle.

The festival runs from September 5-22 and highlights include the return of Australian dance troupe Briefs and their glitzy and super camp show.
