What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra!

O’Learys Irish Bar, Torrox Costa: 11 months, that’s how long we’ve been open and to have reached 2000 likes and follows in that time is nothing short of humbling! From mentions on Irish radio, regular customers from more countries then we thought possible and to people contacting us 3 months before they come on holiday just to get our music line ups, we just can’t believe how far our tiny little bar seems to reach!
So, stick with us cause we’re nowhere near done yet and have loads of things lined up to make us bigger and even better, starting of course with Cian’s first brunch morning tomorrow!
*Midweek Brunch*
This Wednesday we will be starting our new midweek brunch special! We’re gonna open for a half day (11-1530) and serve 1 special plate of brunch that will change every week.
This week is the all time classic EGGS BENEDICT! 2 poached eggs served on a toasted muffin with crispy pancetta, homemade hollandaise and crispy rocket for just €6!
A delicious and affordable way to have a little treat and break up the week with the best lunchtime views around!
*Quiz Night*
Open from 12pm Thursday and our quiz is on tonight from 8.30pm! Pop down, have some food, relax on our terrace and watch the paseo go by and then get ready for the quiz and some great prizes! Score more then the quizmasters target to win the top prize on the night! Great fun guaranteed!
-Friday 9pm The Box Drum Band are joining us cause nobody gets a party dancing like these guys!
-Saturday 9pm We are so lucky to have gotten this amazing duo, Chicago Jim and Mandolin Mick
-Sunday And Alberto Fer will be here sing to you live ad you enjoy our alway popular Sunday roast!!!

Vetiver Spain of Sayalonga:
We have potted Vetiver of different sizes and also in trays of multiple plants that we have grown in our greenhouses for sale. They are more mature plants which will establish quickly in colder climates. They are for pick up only due to their weight. We also have the normal slips available as usual. We can easily ship those if needed.
Check out our new addition of “Buttons” on our home page. They have information on planting, best time to plant, A “Vetiver Introduction Letter” with a load of information and of course more photos and videos related to the use of Vetiver.
The best time to plant Vetiver is between now and the end of March. This way the plant gets the benefit of a long hot summer. Remember that Vetiver is indigenous to India and loves the heat. Vetiver can be planted all summer long.
We are also taking orders for Moringa Trees that we have been growing in the greenhouses. There is a limited supply so place your orders soon. There is also a “Buttons” that will take you directly to the Moringa page or the Lemon Grass page with a lot of useful information. We have put together this information to make it easier for you to research.

Seeking Art or Textile Groups: Can anyone recommend any art or embroidery/textile groups that meet within the areas of Alcaucin, Vinuela, Periana, Los Romanes or Velez Malaga? I live just outside Vinuela and am prepared to travel to any of these areas to improve my watercolour painting and textile art. I’d be grateful for any recommendations you might have.
Please reply to: colleen.taylor1 AT me DOT com
Saludos, Colleen, Vinuela

Cash Machines Problems: Has anyone else experienced problems with the new cash machines that Unicaja have installed? I have tried three times to extract some cash and ended up with nothing, although I did manage to extract my last six entries! What was wrong with the old ones which were simple to use and effective. I’d be interested to find out if it only me!! Confused, John/Algarrobo
