Welcome to our November at Grey’s Lane Bistro!
…back to school …again!
Mid-term break is over, back to school!!! (or not…)
We had a lovely and busy week with lots of visitors from near and abroad, enjoying the mild autumnal weather and the Halloween celebrations.
John Holstead’s “The Road Not Travelled”, is attracting its fair share of bidding and positive comments at the Bistro (don’t forget, every time you place a bid, €5.00 goes to the charity Hope Guatemala!!!!)
The sculpture is particularly striking in the evening when the lights come on…
From the kitchen…
November is when we prepare for the upcoming end of year celebration. Ed and the team are trying out new ideas and recipes, for desserts in particular, what do you think about this lovely looking nougat?
No worries, you will get to taste it soon…
As for us at the Bistro, we are concentrating mostly on day trade : we are open every day from 11 to 4pm for breakfast, lunch and coffee, and Jazz On Sunday is still going on, Joe and Hakan are looking forward to entertain you with their mix of modern and old time Jazz from 2 to 4pm every Sunday, call by for a bite or a drink.
On Saturday the 12th of November we will also be open for dinner. Bookings will be essential for this particular evening as most tables are already reserved.
National Circus Festival of Ireland
November is a much quieter month before the buzz of December. Still, there is a bit to do when you know where to look for it. For example, the National Circus Festival of Ireland takes place in Tralee (November 10 -13) and this year is their 15th anniversary. They’ve got some amazing international acts, acrobats, magicians and jugglers to name but a few performers… a great way to beat the grey, misty November blues and fun for all ages.
On the 20th it’s the Camphill Annual Winter Craft Fair. You always get a warm welcome and it feels good to visit this long established community and sample their delicious jams and herbal teas (Christmas stocking ideas!!).
Keep an eye out for our posters and flyers in town, advertising for our Christmas party night on Saturday 17th December. Whether with friends or colleagues, small or larger groups, all are welcome!
Other Voices arrives in town
From the 27th of November the crew of Other Voices will start arriving into town!!… Rejoice, music lovers, if last year is anything to go by, the 2nd, 3rd & 4th Dec 2016 should be exceptional!!!
See you soon…
Last year we were delighted to host Maria Kelly and Saramai. Of course we will host some of the Music Trail acts at the Bistro again this year, but which ones??….. You will have to check our Facebook or Twitter for updates…. See you soon!
