Recommendations Needed –   Suggestions for Special 50th Anniversary Celebration       Can anyone suggest an evening venue for a 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration at the end of February in or around Nerja ?    We have family coming over from the UK who are staying in Nerja and want to have a special evening celebration for our 50th Wedding Anniversary, there will only be approx. 8 people at the event so nowhere that caters for huge numbers.   Somewhere with good food that can cater for a plain eater husband as well as more exotic (if that’s the right word) !   Somewhere with entertainment either there or nearby.   Perhaps someone has had to do the same thing and has suggestions.   Any advice would be appreciated.  Would even consider hiring a mini bus to go further afield with a return to Nerja later.   Email :   the whites 1950 at live dot co dot uk (please remember to remove the spaces).                           Thanks everyone.   Jan
