Just a quicky to let you know that tomorrow night you can enjoy a private viewing of the Robin Hunter exhibition at The Art of Wine in Truro.
Entry is just £5 which Enora and Roland will put on to a WineEmotion card for your to sample some wine while you admire Robin’s work. Some tasty nibbles will also be provided.
Robin is a local painter and print maker, inspired by the landscape of Cornwall.
Those of you still mourning the loss of Miss Peapods in Penryn will be happy as a pig in er mud at her reincarnation as Muddy Beach (Isn’t that a great name?) – and with more cosmetic surgery than Renée Zellweger. Visually, you won’t recognise the place – but reassuringly, you might recognise some of the staff, including chef Dave who worked at Peapods (more on him below).
I had to pop in and meet my fraternal muddy twin Christian Dann – the face behind the hugely popular restaurant in Jubilee Wharf on the Penryn River.
I’m a massive fan of Fowey – its a super chilled little seaside town on the south coast. But, if I’m honest, there’s not a great deal to gratify die hard foodies. That little fact changed last month when Pintxo opened its doors. The owners are huge fans of San Sebastian in Spain’s Basque Country, with its picturesque bayfront promenade and world-renowned restaurants. And wow! They’ve brought a bit of Basque to Fowey, with their Esplanade front tapas bar.
Daisy Pulls it Off!, King Charles Theatre, Falmouth Thurs 21 – Sat 23 Apr
Ooh err misses! The play is a parody of wholesome, adventure stories in an English Girls’ boarding school. Pulling it off (fnar!) is Daisy Meredith, a girl from a poor home who has to over come snobby prejudice and schoolgirl pranks. As in the St Trinians series the girls are played by older actresses and the headmistress is a man.
Silent auction, cheese and wine evening, The Globe, Fowey Thurs 10 Mar
What’s that you say? Drinking wine for charity? Sounds like my dream job! In aid of Cornwall Hospice Care, on Thursday The Globe are hosting a silent auction and wine and cheese evening. There are eight wines from Bosue, Polgoon, Camel Valley, Knightor and Trevibban Mill vineyard and 12 local cheeses to try, with special guest speakers.
A quickie just to give a nod and tip of the hat to the dapper Roland and Enora at their brand spanking new venture The Art of Wine in Nalder’s Court, Truro – we are totes excited about this one. Only open a week or so now, its already on the radar of the pre-theatre dinner crowd.
Not just a wine shop, not just a lounge bar and not just a gallery – it’s all three.
