Eye on Spain 5th Anniversary Party - Everyone Welcome
02 July 2009 @ 18:31

On 11 July 2009 we will be celebrating five years of Eye on Spain and we'd love for you to come along and join us.

We're only planning a low key evening, nothing formal at all, just a reason to meet people, have a few drinks and tapas and just to have a bit of fun.  BTW, eveyone buys their own drinks and tapas!

We're going to hold it at our favourite tapas bar, Lo de Andres, in Sabinillas (Costa del Sol) at 8pm.  There is a large area outside so there's plenty of space if lots of people turn up.

They'll be a huge bouncy castle so if you want to bring the kids along that should keep them entertained for most of the evening.

Anyway, it would be good to get a feel for numbers so Andres can have an idea of how many people may turn up.

I would appreciate it if you could leave a comment here on the blog to say if you are planning to come along.

Thanks and look forward to meeting you on the night.

As I've only been here in Spain 3 weeks and live in Calahonda, I really only know my way around with the help of a Sat Nav.
Therefore I would be gratiful if you could let me have the address as I would like to come.
Thank you

Congratulations for your five years, and for all of your EOS efforts!!
We can't be at the party 'coz it's too far from here (Johannesburg, South Africa) but surely we shall meet one day.
Enjoy, enjoy!!

Message for Ros.
We also live in Fuengirola and don't fancy driving for the same reason. Do you want me to look into the cost of a taxi for us to share?

I hope to be there as long as I can get these valuation and survey reports finished. Pleased to say that people are becoming much more sensible and realising that they can and should have RICS surveys carried out before they buy.

With best wishes and thanks for an interesting, informative and accurate newsletter.

Bar Lo de Andres is in Sabinillas. It is just off the Sabinillas roundabout (A7/N340), on the beach side. The roundabout has "Sabinillas" written on it in big white letters. If you are coming from the Estepona/Marbella direction, you need to take a left at the roundabout and then the bar is on the right hand side on the square by the taxi rank.

John Hughes said:
06 July 2009 @ 11:19

My friend Barry Gorst and I would love to come along and meet and talk with your guests.
We have much advice we can give to those who have had troubles here in Spain.
Not sure about the BC with Tapas, I hope its authentic.

LIzzie said:
