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.

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.

Beep in Almerimar

I was looking at the Wiki Ejido site and saw an advert saying that a computer shop called Beep is to open soon in Almerimar.

I guess beep.es is their website so that should give people an idea of what might be available to purchase when the shop opens.

Panaderia 19th hole

A few days ago I noticed a sign saying that a new bread and cake shop was opening next week not far from the D'Bar. As you can see from the photo above it looks like it is getting close to being ready.

"First of all we would like to thank everybody for making Friday a great night and a special thanks to groovy Phil who is off shortly and will be back with us at the end of May.

Marios toldo

On Thursday I noticed that some men were working at the front of Mario's. This morning I saw what they had done and took a photo. I need not have bothered as this photo was already on Facebook on Mario's Facebook page.

Click on the picture above to see all of the toldo.

Matthew from Leo's has been in touch withe the following information....

"Just to let you know that next Friday groovey Phil will be performing from 17:00 to 21:00 and we are serving a free buffet and the chip shop will again serve food from 20:00."

Leo's sign

Leo's sign

Over the last week or two we have heard a number of people say a lot of good things about Leo's. The new management of the place seem to be doing a good job of attracting and keeping customers.

As you can see from the photos above there is entertainment there tomorrow (18 April 2014) and they are re-starting selling Friday night fish and chips.

We wish the new management the best of luck with their new venture.

As you can see from the crane it looks like they may be upgrading the aircon as part of the Mercadona building work.

 Mercadona building work - March 2014

Mercadona building work - March 2014

When he saw our earlier story about Mercadona one of our readers got in touch asking if we had exact dates for the shop closing temporarily. As you can see from the photos above from earlier today there are clear signs that the building work is starting.

I called into the shop and asked one of the members of staff for information. He said that the shop will be closing on 28 April 2014 and will remain shut for approximately 5-6 weeks.

You can see more photos here in the Gallery.

Nautilus tapas

A special mention to Nautilus for the quality of the tapas they served at the FGS prize giving event for the Sunday competition on 2 March 2014. The photo above is of the second type of tapas they produced for us last night. It was really tasty and so was the first one, an apple and prawn salad.
