Cheers on the road
You people are amazing! Here’s another batch of photos taken in far-flung destinations – all featuring Cheers magazine. Thank you, loyal readers.
MEXICO (1, 2)
Helen and Geoff Dryden visited Puerta Vallarta in Mexico and passed on these images – which include a rather scary looking lady and a band playing on the beach. Last October, The Mean Eyed Cat in Newcastle organised Cat Crawl, a charity pub walk in aid of St Oswald’s Hospice, Newcastle, which provides specialist care to adults, young people, babies and children with life-limiting conditions. Helen and Geoff’s son Alex was tragically one of those young men.
Mean Eyed Cat owner Julie Campbell said: “Alex was only 30 years old when he passed away and the last few weeks of his life were spent at St Oswald’s Hospice and their wonderful care facility. Helen and I have been friends since schooldays and we’re also undertaking a trek this year to Machu Picchu in Peru together with another friend Vicky – also in aid of St Oswald’s.”
Folks, thank you for your contributions and keep them coming.
CALIFORNIA (3, 4. 5)
Kath Pells sent us these from a trip to Palm Springs, California, with her husband Dave.
She says: “Idyllwild pub was located in the San Jacinto Mountains. A large variety of IPAs were on offer, ranging from 7.5% abv upwards (Upwards? Ed). La Quinta brewing company is similar to our micropubs which featured Dave’s favourite Even Par at 7.2% abv. Our favourite pub was the Yard House in Palm Springs itself. It provided tablets on each table to help browse the beer menus, order drinks, get table service, and also pay at the end so there was actually no need to leave your seat. They also played great music which added to the whole experience – plus great customer service throughout. All in all a great experience along with good customer service throughout.
