The headline band have been on before. One of Portugal's longest established rock bands.

I have taken the liberty of moving this to the events listing in part 2.

And pretty good too. I have a couple of their CD's and a live concert DVD.
I hate how peopleï compare Frank Zappa to God. I mean, he's cool and great and nice and everything, but he's no Zappa.

Adjacent to the 4th tee at Pine Cliffs Golf Course is their football pitch.
Not quite full size but probably three quarter size.
4 large mobile cranes were parked on it when I played golf last Monday so wondered what was going on.
Played again yesterday and they are constructing a massive building on it that takes up pretty much the whole of the football pitch.
This is constructed of steel frame to which they attaching some sort of solid sheeting.
When we got back to the Clubhouse we naturally inquired as to what it was going to be.
Believe it or not, it is a temporary building for use on New Years Eve only.
They are having a full blown Circus in it together with dinner, other entertainment and the whole works.
After that the building will be taken down and removed.
If anyone wants to go it's 280 Euro per head and they reckon they'll get 1,000 people in it.
Anyway, went back this morning and took a few snaps of it.

Wow €280 I think I'll stick to standing at the top of the escalators with a €10 bottle of procecco at midnight watching the display and doing a few pubs beforehand 🙈

Cheap by their standards. The summer gala they have in August each year is over 500 Euro for the full treatment and they are never short of punters. Fair play to them though they do know how to make money..

Yes but those takers are ‘corporate’ takers/punters which somewhat changes the goal posts, when ‘corporate’ are paying, be it reward or to impress, it’s easy to truck up. Compare that to paying for yourself out of taxed income... quite a different proposition.

The quality of this conversation is on the slide already I see.

Smile

Any business types around here willing to host a table ?

No. I thought not. On well, swilling beer all night in the alehouse will have to do.
