December Already!

December already………………….where does the time fly?…………….. need to find the Christmas decorations as I can’t remember where they got stashed after last year……… and must remember to anchor the tree this year so that when the cats launch themselves towards it we don’t have the same carnage as before!!

So, hope everyone is well and enjoying the daytime weather! Gorgeously warm during the day but a bit nippy in the evenings and first thing in the morning……………. Sorry for those of you in the UK who are not experiencing this or can’t remember what sunshine is!!

November @ Cheeky Monkey

Welcome to November (almost Christmas hurrah!)

Counting the days to Christmas? Yesterday I had an email from the Post Office in the UK informing me of the last posting dates to destinations throughout the world……. which means I ought to think about updating the Christmas card list soon…………
We have added some “winter warmer” dishes to the blackboard – including the incredibly popular Liver and Bacon which last week literally sold faster than we could make it……………
So apart from the popular charity quiz every Thursday @8pm and our Sunday lunches from 1pm we have the following events……….
Wednesday November 11th – Murder Mystery
There are a few places left for our Murder Mystery night on Wednesday 11th November. Entitled “Murder at Doubtful Abbey” this is an event with a 3 course meal and ½ bottle of wine for €12.95 and your chance to win a prize if you can correctly guess the murderer and the motive. A great fun evening with lots of laughter; authentic and spurious clues, where you are able to ask the suspects questions.
Saturday November 21st – Rob Sweeney
Rob is a versatile and polished performer with a rich, powerful voice – singing everything from sixties pop to the present, show-songs to soul classics and lots in between. A tribute to the music and overall style of Michael Bublé.€13.95pp including buffet.
Looking further ahead – we are closing mid December (last day Sunday 13th December) and reopening sometime in January – not sure of this date yet as Richard hasn’t made up his mind.
And for those of you who were asking and emailing me when the next date for Duo Intermezzo was going to be – we are pleased to announce it is Saturday 12th March.
Have fun and see you soon
Best wishes

Their aim is to provide practical, emotional and financial support to those living with or affected by cancer.

The evening event includes a 2 course meal at €10 per person (€3 of which goes to the charity). There will be a raffle, as well as the 8 races that will be run throughout the evening – if the horse that you place a bet on wins, you will receive tokens and these can be exchanged at the end of the night for bottles of wine/spirits. Even if you cannot attend we would urge you to come into Cheeky Monkey and pay €5.00 for the privilege of being one of the horse owners – winning owners will receive a bottle of fizzy.
