If you're anything like us here at entertainment.ie, you've already got that Friday feeling coursing through your body right now reading this. Hold on, you're nearly there!
But - what's new for you to do this weekend, you ask? Well, luckily for you, we've teamed up with Burger King to ensure you have a whopper of a weekend with five fresh picks to keep you busy for the next few days.
So, whether you're in the mood for a chilled one, a night on the town or an escape to the cinema, we've listed five big things that should be on your radar.
Dara Ó Briain| Vicar Street
If you fancy a laugh this weekend then get down to Vicar Street. The Irish comedy legend is back with extra dates for his 'So, Where Were We?' tour this Friday and Saturday.
For the tour, Dara will hardly mention the last year and a half, because, Jesus, who wants to hear about that, but will instead fire out the usual mix of stories, one-liners, audience messing, and tripping over his words because he is talking too quickly, because he's so giddy to be back in front of a crowd.

Sister Act: The Musical| Bord Gais Energy Theatre
Featuring original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar award-winner Alan Menken (Disney’s 'Aladdin', 'Enchanted') and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, this heavenly musical is joyous and uplifting in equal measures. A musical sent from above, Sister Act is the brilliant, must-see show which raises the spirits and warms the soul time after time.
Disco diva Deloris’ life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Placed under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she shouldn’t be found – a convent! Encouraged to help the struggling choir, she helps her fellow sisters find their true voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.

'Don't Worry Darling'| In Cinemas
If you've been living under a rock the last few months and don't know what's been going on behind the scenes with Olivia Wilde's upcoming film, then OH BOY do we have some things to tell you.
Between, Wilde's on set affair with star Harry Styles, Florence Pugh walking into the premiere late with an Aperol Spritz and don't even get me started on spit-gate - there's simply too much going on to not be even slightly buzzing to see this film.
It follows a 1950s housewife living with her husband in a utopian experimental community who begins to worry that his glamorous company could be hiding disturbing secrets.
