Here I am sitting at the computer looking out at a very cold and grey landscape – oh so cold! We are pretty lucky here as the snow seldom lasts long so when it started to fall on Monday I was sure that it would be be gone by Tuesday – and it was! However I think there will be more on the way and it is promising to be very cold here over the coming few days – please wrap up and keep warm everyone! Paul is putting the mulled wine back on the menu for the weekend so that should keep us warm and cheery!
Well we have had a quiet month this past January, not so for everyone though. You may remember we were wishing John and his sons well with their Kilimanjaro climb, well I am very pleased to report that they made it and have the photos to prove it (see a copy in the cafe). Well done on the climb and for making lots of money for the Prostrate Cancer charity.
We had a brilliant evening on Saturday at our Curry Evening Quiz – the winning and second place teams were only separated by one point. The winning team “Rocket 88″ were first time players at the quiz evening and won with a very respectable score of 83 out of a possible 100. The runners up “The Weakest Links” were only one point behind with 82 points. The wooden spoon went to another team of quiz first timers (also the team with our youngest members!) – the “Lone Wolves”, let’s hope that that has not put them off and that Matthew and Callum bring Mum and Dad back with them again next time! Our next quiz will not be until the first weekend in March – Saturday 3rd March. The meal this time will be Lasagne with garlic bread and the evening will start at 7.30pm. As usual, tables of four can be booked with Paul behind the bar. Tickets will be 10 Euros each (including the quiz and meal) and your table booking can be secured by a 10Euro deposit. We look
forward to seeing you!
We will be taking a break this month for a rest to get ourselves ready for the spring and summer seasons so here are some dates for your diary: The cafe will be closed from Monday 6th February and will re-open on Saturday 25th February. We will then be back to our usual opening hours – i.e. closed Monday and Tuesday each week and open from 11.00am until we close around 6.00pm.
We hope you all have a lovely Valentine’s Day and look forward to seeing you all again soon in the cafe!
