Beep Almerimar

As you can see from the photo above Almerimar has a new computer shop. It is just across from the square over the road from La Gaviota (was La Caleta).

I guess it looks like the excellent batch PC in Copo has a bit of local competition now.

We have just received this from Leo's.....

"Looks like summer is finally here eh?

Looking forward to the Wimbledon finals today and tomorrow, it's been a real shocker this year so far.

We had a Fabulous night last night. Soul emotion, what a voice knocked our socks off. Will let everyone know when she will be back. 

This coming week will see Paco here on Monday night for some music and karaoke and on Sunday groovy Phil will be his fabulous top hat wearing self and entertain us from 6pm right up to the World Cup final match at 9pm. After the match we will draw our blind pick World Cup team envelope to find the lucky winner of a rather tidy sum. Good luck"

We have just received this from Nina at Leo's.....

"Could you please thank everybody from us here at Leos for the great turnout to watch the footie on Thursday night. It may have been a disappointing end but we had a great night dancing away our sorrows.
Covers and roll were fantastic on Friday and will be back at a later date.
Looking forward now to Wimbledon which we will show everyday throughout the tournament.
 This Tuesday coming we have all the way from sunny ROQUETAS our great friend Paco entertaining us. Paco and friends will be joining us on most Mondays all through the summer and have some great surprises in store.
Look forward to seeing everyone.

Thanks Nina"

Indian Menu 2014

Yesterday I called by the Indian restaurant that is now up and running in the complex behind the church on Darsena 1. I have put together a copy of their menu. All bar the bottom page in the photo above is Indian food.

As yet, we have not tried the restaurant. No doubt we will try it out sometime soon.

Click on the image above (then click on the image that appears to enlarge it) to see a bigger version of the menu.

Just received this from Matthew....

"Could you please thank everybody on behalf of us at leos for the great turn out on Saturday night. Was a fantastic night.
This week we have on Thursday night live music with Groovy from 19.30, the match Uruguay v England and more music from Phil after the match. Friday night from 8pm for the first time at Leos we have performing Covers n' roll.chip shop open as usual from 7pm and full menu also available.
Look forward to seeing everyone"

I seem to remember the other day someone recommended the re-opened bar down the side street in Porto Fino. I think it used to be called Casanova but I am not sure. They said that they had been there a couple of times and liked it.

Jacqui and I have now both tried out the new layout in Mercadona. Jacqui did some normal shopping this morning and I bought the Friday bottles this afternoon.

Points to note:

- Picking up one of the small wheely baskets is more difficult as they are not on the way in. You have to double back on yourself once you have collected a basket.

- You no longer have aisles running the full length of the shop. They run as before for around 2/3 of the shop (straight on from the checkouts). At the bottom end of the shop where the other checkouts used to be the layout is then a set of aisles at right angles to the main ones. Along into where the chinese shop used to be.

.- It felt like there may not be enough checkouts for the summer rush in July and August.

- I didn´t notice much extra stock. In fact there was a smaller selection of chocolates unless I have missed an aisle somewhere.

- As you would expect, nothing is in the same place as before so it will take a little getting used to.

Summer evenings in the Almerimar clubhouse - 2014

While I was dropping off the list for Friday golf next Friday I noticed a sign at the top of the stairs in the clubhouse.

As you can see from above there is a plan to open the clubhouse to serve food in the evenings in the summer. It mentions cocktail & music plus a grill menu including 1 drink for 25 euros a person.

I asked when this was going to start. However the restaurant staff were not sure. So watch out for a further announcement about this at some point.


Mario's Almerimar

After being closed for 5 days Mario's is now re-open. The photo above is from Mario's facebook page.

A while ago Mario's put up a new toldo at the front of their building. They also installed some artificial grass at the front.

It has now been shut for a few days with lots of banging and clattering going on inside. When I looked in the window it looks like they may now be painting inside as well.

I guess it will open again soon looking spick and span.

We look forward to seeing everybody on Friday for the party with GROOVY PHIL.

The sign outside Mercadona has been changed. It now says the re-opening date is now Thursday 12 June 2014. 5 days earlier than previously scheduled.

So it is now opening on the first day of the world cup.
