While chalking at the Chalk Festival in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland last weekend, I was approached by a woman who wanted to know if I could chalk a board for a restaurant in nearby Dalkey. I said sure, that we had two days after the festival, and we were planning on going to Dalkey anyway. We found the restaurant, the Dalkey Dispensary, which is a very nice tapas and wine restaurant, with 2 floors and lots of black walls. They wanted us to chalk a large table upstairs, and three areas on the walls. We quickly made some sketches and Mercedes and I got to work. Craig took the train back to the hotel to get the rest of our chalks, since I had only brought enough for a small board.
It took about 5 hours for the two of us to complete the table and walls. Chalking in the dark was a bit of a challenge. At one point, the restaurant was so busy, that we had a couple of tables of patrons eating nearby (Dinner and a Show!). They are going to try spray coat it and we took pictures, but short of putting a glass top over it, it will probably be only temporary. Jackie, the manager, wanted to use it on their website, but also wanted to use it as a table. We also sampled some of their great tapas and wine while working. Everything was great!
