Dress Code

Sean Kieran Chefs Jackets I’m half thinking, for the craic, of going to the blog awards dressed in full ice cream man regalia, including white wellie boots, which I have always wanted to wear in Dublin, and a big floppy Gelato chefs hat. Of course, it would be easier to pull off such a thing with my brother Sean (photo, right), who is fearless but sadly unable to attend. Still, it is tempting. What do you think?

Should the ice cream man go to Dublin in full regalia? (Poll Closed)

    Should make you easier to spot (unless I wear mine too!)

    Let’s hope it’ll be all white on the night. (Someone had to say it). Evening dress looks entirely appropriate or pretty silly, too, depending on your point of view. Go on, go on.

    I’m thinking you’ll be quite handsome in a tuxedo. I’d only wear the chef’s outfit if I were bringing enough ice cream for everyone. ;D

    Do, Martin! We could confuse everyone. The problem with the chefs jacket, though, is that we could take heat guests if hotel food not up to scratch.

    Do it! It’s brilliant…and my thoughts on why you should…because we only live once (that we know of) and now that you’ve entertained the notion will there not bee a wee voice in your head nagging you to near insanity if you DON’T do it…?
    p.s. When you do go, dressed to the nines in your Ice Cream man clothes, you will take a small ice chest with ice cream right? So you can carry a cone around? Unless you have insulated pockets in the ice cream man clothes…come to think of it that would be handier…whipping an ice cream cone out of your pocket at a moment’s notice…nice!

    Sure why not? It’s all in good fun! Even the wellies alone would be great!

    White wellies and a tux sounds pretty snazzy to me if you don’t want to go the whole hog and wear the entire outfit!!!
