Tathra Hotel Monthly News Letter - march 2019
Welcome to March and the start of the best season of the year. We love Autumn – cooler weather but still warm enough for the beach.
February has been a busy month for us with a few functions, some great music and plenty of tourists. Sadly we farewelled our managers Michael and Christine at the end of February so we are back running the hotel until replacements arrive – there have been some very good quality applicants who should be more than capable of keeping up the standard of the hotel.
LIVE MUSIC returns to its WEEKEND spot until Easter. There are some good acts coming to play for you in March – American guitarist Richard Gilewitz will be with us on March 9 and 10, supported by local band SURG. March 16th and 17th will see seasoned festival performers “The Water Runners” performing. Local acts Malumba (with a new CD under their belts) and Michael Menager appear later in the month with travelling singer / songwriter Lou Bradley here on March 31. Open Mic Night will resume on Friday March 8 – usually it is the first Friday of the month but we thought it best not to clash with the Cobargo Festival.
It has been terrific seeing the TATHRA PUB CHOIR get started. Anne Hamilton-Smith and others have put a lot of effort into getting it off the ground and the response has been great to see. Having a different leader each week seems to be working well and full of surprises. It will continue on Thursday nights from 6 – 7:30pm. The kitchen are knocking out tasty PIZZA on Thursday evenings.
March 18 is of course the anniversary of the fires last year. Sharon Stevens is organising a fire related art exhibition in The Trove that will be opening at 5pm on the 18th. From 6pm there will be an informal open mic night in the bar. If you would like to come and sing a song, recite a poem or just say something about the fire or the recovery come along. The choir will also be performing a fire related song written by Peter Howe. Some of you may remember a wonderful concert by Irish singer Susan O’Neill just after the fires last year – Susan will be back with us the first weekend in April.
Jaime our brewer continues to put out some interesting beers from the Humpback Brewery. The First Calf Pale Ale will shortly be back on tap and he has some Porter and a Vienna Ale in the tanks. Putting a brewery into a hotel is something we have wanted to do for a long time and it has been very satisfying seeing the beers well received. Visit the website or the facebook page for more updates.
The four new “Heritage” rooms above the bar are proving popular with travellers. The budget motel rooms have also been well booked. All the accommodation can be booked online through the hotel’s website.
