I am off out in while to speak to the owners of the three bars in Charco del Palo and the others in Mala to find out what their plans are for Christmas and the New year regards open times, menus, prices, etc. Should have something up for you to see by the weekend.
The Don Quijote in Mala is having live music again on the 7th December. This is about the third time recently that Mark the owner of the Don Quijote has organised entertainment at his bar, great news, other bars in Charco del Palo and the surrounding area should make note, "We like live music". I believe the evenings have been a great success so far, long may they continues. Well done Mark.
I love a Christmas Market and while I am in the Uk this coming weekend (yes I know its gonna be cold) I hope to visit the one on the south bank in London and along with my grand children 3 and 5yrs plus my son we will be visiting Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, weather permitting !! We also have a big birthday dinner for my dad who is celebrating 89yrs, so that also means a trip to Norwich. Wow busy weekend.... anyhow back to Lanzarote and ....
The Cantina de Mala is having their Mercadillo de Navidad on the 20th, 21st and 22nd December 2017 starting at 17hrs till 22hrs. Lots of goodies will be on sale along with mulled wine, bratwurst from the grill and mince pies (made by me) and other goodies. Oh, I am for getting my friend Nickie is making knitted santa's, snow men and elves, photo to come. See below some items I have for sale. See you there x Spread the word.
I have just had news from Alex who runs The Cantina de Mala to say that the posters are ready for the Oktoberfest which is happening on the 10th 11th and 12th November 2017. There is live music Friday and Saturday night starting at approx 18hrs and also during the Sunday brunch period starting at midday.
Pop along and join in the fun. Great tapas menu, and lots of other choices. If you visit for Sunday Brunch then you must try the freshly roasted chickens, or the selection of German sausages.
I love the fact that we have an Oktoberfest in November, Only in Lanzarote !!
See you there sometime over the weekend I'm sure.
Great news today, Jackie told me last night that she will be working Tuesday and Wednesday nights at the Cantina de Mala starting from the 1st November 2017. Brilliant, it will be so nice to have Jackie behind a bar again, we have all missed you. The Cantina has had a few staffing problems over the past couple of months which has angered some of the more regular customers. With Jackie now coming on board the gap in the week is now filled which means the Cantina will be open seven days a week from here on in.
Alex who runs the Cantina often has music on Saturday evenings and sometimes there is an evening market selling all sorts of things, check notices at the bar for more information.
In November the Cantina will host an Oktoberfest from 10th till 12th November. There will be live music Friday and Saturday night and during the Sunday brunch period, everyone is welcome so pop along and join in. Perhaps you might meet the girl in the photo !!!
In December there is a Christmas Market, this will run from 20th to the 23rd December. I think Alex is trying to organise a Father Christmas so the local children get the chance to have their photo taken with him, volunteers please, speak with Alex.
Just for your information I will have a stall at the Christmas market selling my infamous Chilli Jam, along with lots of other crafty things that I've made.
I am hearing some very good comments about the food at the Cantina, Victor the chef does a very good job, and is always ready to speak to you about the menu if you have certain dietary needs. He makes all his own tapas and they are good and tasty. Already I am seeing the same faces at the Cantina, meaning people are returning time and time again. Great news for this quirky little bar. Well done Alex, this is just want we all needed.
