Torrox Scene Notes:
-New management has reopened the former Nando’s Tasca in Torrox Costa, no word on the new name yet.
-Richi’s Pollo Adasor Cafe (rotisserie chicken) now also does whole rabbits & a variety of meat roasts with 24hrs notice. BLK 77 Torrox Costa
-People have been asking why there were no New Years fireworks in Torrox Costa. The beachfront was virtually empty at midnight. Here are 2 pics of the Torre del Mar fireworks viewed from the deserted Torrox Playa. Sorry about the quality, it’s the best I could do while also holding on to a nervous dog’s lead, a bottle of cava and a cigarette.

Dog Info: Regarding the posts on the advert for selling of puppies by Digamextra. I have just read the ad and the comments and would like to add the following points. First of all one of the parents is an Akito which is classed as a dangerous dog in Spain. Therefore it needs registration and licensing. The puppies will also be classed as dangerous dogs. There is no doubt an official government site but here is the basic information.
I hope that more people can be informed about the regulations so that we can all do something about the current dog situation here.
