O’Learys, Torrox Costa – Weekly Line-up
You’ll never guess what?? It’s another incredible weekend of live music in O Learys!
Why/how do we do it week after week? Simple, we’re absolutely obsessed with live music and good food so, work for us, is just a great day out with our friends!

-Sat 2100HRS A newcomer to us but we hear fantastic things about Betty Loop! We’re delighted to finally have booked them and we know, you guys are gonna love them! Funky, fun and very talented!See them here first!
-Sun 1400HRS After absolutely blowing the roof off with his rock band last week, our favourite guy is back to do his solo set which as we all know, is bloody good! Lee Townsend will be rocking all afternoon!
-Cian has completely outdone himself with this weeks guest burger! Even he said, “I’m not sure I’ve ever made anything tastier”. “The Bollywood” is our signature crispy chicken, sitting on a bed of spiced mango chutney and topped with an incredible, Indian curry spiced mayo! Served with homemade chips and our house spiced salt and side salad! The best thing you’ll eat anywhere for €10! Available from Thurs to close of business on Sunday!

Cinema In English – April 12 to 18
CINESUR – Velez Malaga El Ingenio
As is often the case, the holiday period sees the retreat of VOSE screenings from the schedules. All that remains for Semana Santa are midday screenings of Dumbo.
-Dumbo. Dir. Tim Burton. With Colin Farrell, Eva Green. Sat to Wed 12:20.
YELMO CINEMA: This may therefore be a good time to point out to those who need their movie fix – or who live on the western side of the region – that the Yelmo Cinema in Rincon De La Victoria always has a good selection of English language screenings on Tuesdays. For example, next Tuesday (16th) the choice is:
-Wonder Park (20:05), After (22:00), Shazam (21:15), Dumbo (20:30), Us (21:20), The Mule (21:40).

Big thanks to Anja & Carlos from the YoSoy Cafe, Torrox Costa for responding to my request for a mini-fridge for the DigameXtra workshop, delivering a great, almost new under counter fridge with freezer compartment to my door this afternoon. It’s greatly appreciated! Naythan


Home for dog: I found this little dog last Saturday in Alcaucin, the little dog looked like it had been dumped, had string around it’s little neck, I have looked after her but I can’t keep her long term as I have a dog already, the rescue centres I have contacted can’t take her as they are full? I would like to get a good home for her, she is a lovely little dog. Kind regards, Maureen/Alcaucin
Email: mbolton372.mb AT gmail DOT com


Help for a rescue: I wondered if there is anyone in Digame land who would be so kind as to lend me a live trap in order that I might capture a feral cat who is the mother to 3 newborn kittens (there were 4, one died before their rescue could take place). Although the kittens are safe at present, I still feel the best carer for them is their natural mother. It would be lovely to have her reunited with her babies. If you can help by temporarily providing a live trap, it would be very much appreciated.
