Almerimar

We held our first progressive whist event in Almerimar yesterday. 16 players learned how the game was organised and played. We had a very enjoyable time.

We will be playing again next Tuesday (21 January) starting at 4pm in the Pensioners Centre at the back of Porto Fino.

It is very much a mixed ability group so please do not be frightened to come along.

If you are interested in joining us please get in touch. I will then add you to the Whatsapp group for the events.

El Ejido Ladies Rugby 14 January 2020

I picked this up off Facebook.

Fancy watching some ladies rugby training in advance of an international match against Scotland?

UPDATED: The poster says that the international match is in Almería. In the Juan Rojas stadium at 12:00 on Sunday 19 January. It is in small writing on the poster.

Jacqui McM has asked us to post a reminder about this event....

One of our readers, Jacqui McM has asked me to advertise this event.....

"It's that time of year again when we are going to be advertising the Burns Supper. It will be 25 euros per ticket. 4 course meal with dancing. Wine, toasts and free raffle included in the price. January 25th at El Espigon. Thanks."

Please get in touch if you would like to attend. I will then pass your details on to Jacqui.

Just a reminder that the Kings will be arriving in the port on SUNDAY 5 January 2020 (CORRECTED) at around 16:00. They will then parade around the marina.

I believe that most of the shops including Mercadona will be closed on Monday 6 January as it is a bank holiday. So get your shopping done today.

Charity Shop Fair - 8 Dec 19

Jeni P posted this to me via the Almerimar Today Facebook page recently.

Some of the regular golfers may not attend the event. As there is an official golf competition supporting Equinac that morning.

AlmerimarHalloween2019New

I picked these posters up off Facebook. They contain details of Halloween night in "the square" this year. Being organised by the Junta Local and the federation of businesses in Almerimar.

We enjoyed a very pleasant 7 course taster menu at Taberna B Once last night. Like most events like this not every course suited every person.

My personal highlights were the home made paté, duck kebab with fruits, beef wellington and the dessert of small cherries with ice cream.

Taberna B11 Taster Menu - 28 Sept 19

Not that long ago I spotted that Taberna B11 had a new chef working there. There was a photo of Juan plus photos of a number of items he had added to the menu there. They were on the Taberna B11 Facebook page.

Talking to friends about this I understand that the new chef has worked in a number of restaurants in Almerimar. In particular, a lot of people remember him as the chef in Gourmet (now MacGowans). They all said they liked the food he prepared.

As you can see from the photo above there is a taster menu event organised for Saturday 28 September. Starting at 9pm. 7 courses for 30 euros.

You can reserve your table at B11 (located in the street down the middle of Porto Fino).
