Re: New Year's Eve restaurant

Taste have issued their Christmas Day and New Years Eve menus. I picked up copy from Hemingway’s bar in Carvoeiro, can’t remember costs but New Year was dearest! Fixed menu, no choice other than take it or leave it!!

Re: Gluten free eating in Carvoeiro.

Hi
This topic has cropped up before when someone asked about vegan restaurants I’m sure. I suggest you use the forums search engine to see posts about gluten free restaurants. Bound to be advice from other forum members.
Hope this helps.

Re: Singing Group

Looked at The Portugal News dated 10 November, page 43, two mentions of singing groups. Aljezur singing group meets at Music Room at the Aljezer Bombeiros and Tavira POP Choir, Fonte do Bispo.

Re: The secret

Thanks Maccasa and Sam for info on growing your own, must give it a try though from past experiences with growing indoors might not be as successful! Do try and grow veg outside, potato’s usually good crop, Brussels Sprouts looking good at moment but courgettes were a poor crop.

Re: Singing Group

Would The Portugal News or Algarve Resident newspapers have details of such a group?

Re: A blast from the past

Where do forum members usually enjoy a refreshment these days?
Me?
Depends on whether alone, with wife or friends and whether want a view or people watching!
So, ranges from Harry’s Bar, Hemingway’s, Metabixio, Earth, Atlantic View, Cafe Fino.

Re: Wedding

The Mashups as a band. They have a Facebook page that advertises where they are playing. Check them out before hiring them. They have regular gigs along Algarve.

Friends daughter got arried in Ferragudo. Had wanted to get married in CVO but church at top of GNR hill don't do weddings for '...
