Bio Beach Restaurant in El Morche:
– Did you know that the owners of Bio Beach are from Argentina? As such, when they prepare meat, they know what they are doing. For meat lovers, one of their most celebrated dishes on the menu is their sizzling beef loin (La Entrana de Ternera) served with fresh vegetables (see pic). A delight for any gourmand with a discerning palate. If you are a perceptive consumer of fine food, you may just want to give them a try! A delicious meal on their lovely terrace facing the sea is an evening to remember! They also feature talented musicians to entertain you while dining.
– The Bio Beach lectures will start again on Sept. 14th at 11am. We’ll present an exciting program delivered by Louis C., a U3A member who is a Chef. He’ll bring you a fascinating lecture entitled: “Let’s Talk Rice” which will include its history, various types of rice, traditional ways of preparing this staple food for various cultures, etc… These U3A programmes are free, just order refreshments. We belong to U3A, (http://www.u3aaxarquia.com/); these social, educational and stimulating mornings are presented in an effort to attract more members. Bio Beach Restaurant is located on the El Morche beachfront promenade (right behind the church). We look forward to see you there! For more info contact norma2kk@aol.com

Buskers Bar- Nerja: Closed for holiday. Reopen Tuesday Aug 30th


Queen Revolution: 20 Aug. Finca El Porton, Alhaurin de la Torre
– Queen Generation comes from Italy to surprise with a particular way of understanding the concept of the legendary band. Actually, it is an international show that reflects what Queen concerts were like on stage. Moreover, in each of his performances, we can see him as the best double of Freddie Mercury that has currently existed for his best audience. Indeed, he is shown singing live and sitting at the piano interpreting the mythical songs that the artist did on piano and voice. That’s where the magic repeats itself. And of course, surrounded by the rest of his legendary band.
– Video projections are great and add so much to the show. Also the costume changes are very successful. And the great interpretation of this band, give Queen Generation all the necessary emotion. It’s like watching an aesthetic and musical replica of the concerts led by the immortal Freddie Mercury together with the mythical Queen. In this way, Queen Generation becomes a 2-hour international show, reviewing all of Queen’s hits, with the best live music. Entry €18

Three cruise ships with capacity for 9,000 passengers make a stopover in Malaga to coincide with the city’s fair:
– The first to arrive did so last Friday, coinciding with the fireworks that opened the proceedings of the summer fair. It was the Wind Surf (pic), a five-masted foremast schooner considered one of the largest cruising sailboats in the world.
– The arrival of one of the giants of the cruise sector, the Anthem of the Seas, with the capacity to carry almost 5,000 passengers, is scheduled for the 18th. This ship, weighing 168,666 tonnes and some 347 metres in length, will dock from Gibraltar at seven in the morning and will depart at four in the afternoon for Valencia.
– A day later, the MSC Orchestra will dock at the port, sailing from Marseille, and will arrive in Malaga at around eight in the morning to leave for Cadiz at seven in the evening.

A section of Andalucía avenue closed to traffic in Torre del Mar due to works: {Translation}
– From this Tuesday, 16th August, vehicles will be diverted in the Nerja-Malaga direction along the parallel road, from the roundabout with Victoria Kent Avenue to Clavel Street.
– Work begins in Torre del Mar on Avenida Andalucía, which will mean that the section of the road where the complete remodelling of the flowerbeds is to be carried out will be closed to traffic.
– This is specifically the area between the roundabout where Victoria Kent Avenue meets (the one that leads to the Regional Hospital) and the roundabout with Clavel Street (in the area of Plazamar, the Virgen de la Victoria Home and the Europa complex).
– In this first phase, which begins this Tuesday, 16th August, it will affect traffic in the direction of Nerja-Malaga, which, according to the Local Police Headquarters, will be diverted along the service road parallel to it. For the moment it will not affect traffic in the Malaga-Nerja direction, which will be able to circulate normally along Avenida Andalucia.
– As this temporary detour forces a large flow of cars to circulate along the service road in residential areas which are very busy at this time of year, the Local Police Headquarters ask residents, pedestrians and vehicle users to respect the signs and provisional indications and to take extreme caution.
