Tathra Hotel Monthly News Letter - MAY 2019

tathra hotel heritage historic 56 800 long.jpg

Welcome to May! We are all catching our breath after an extremely busy Easter and Anzac Day. It was great to see lots of tourists in town for extended holidays and it was hard to keep up at times. The cooler months are now with us and time for the locals to have the hotel mostly to themselves.

LIVE MUSIC continues in the cooler months but mostly just on Sundays. Blues guitarist Chris O’Connor is with us on May 5 and then the following weekend we are excited to welcome back a great friend of ours Enda Kenny. Enda is a wonderful singer songwriter who has not been here since we reopened and will be doing Saturday and Sunday shows. He’ll be accompanied by Dave O’Neill and supported by Mike Martin. Local duo Honey will make their first appearance here on Saturday 18th, followed by two of the areas musical families, The Martins and The Mills on Sunday 19th. Michael Menager will be here with his trio the last Sunday of the month just before he heads off to America for his annual visit and performances. Open Mic Night will be on the first Friday of the month on May 3 – it’s a great opportunity to perform new work in a public arena – email the hotel (hello@tathrahotel.com.au) to register.

On Wednesday 8th we are privileged to host a very special event. Alex Nicol will be presenting his one man play "Sunday People" from 6pm. There will be some music to start and a book signing afterwards.

The TATHRA PUB CHOIR continues to draw a good crowd and the concept of having a different leader each week seems to be providing plenty of interest. It will continue on Thursday nights from 6-7:30pm. The kitchen are knocking out tasty PIZZA on Thursday evenings.

Sharon and Werner have now closed The Trove. They have been a great addition to the hotel and we hope they find somewhere else to pop up their shop next summer. Local artist Julie Krone has kindly leant her wonderful sculpture from the “fire exhibition” to the hotel – it’s in the area near reception. We were hoping to have commenced work on the theatre by now but council are really dragging their feet on it and we are still waiting for approval, despite the plans being lodged before Christmas.

Don't forget to book your table for Mothers Day on May 12. At lunchtime the Bega Brass Quintet will be performing.Those wondering about the popular “Where in the World” dinners will be pleased to know they will be back sometime in May. The annual World Environment Day dinner organised by Doug Reckord is on at the hotel on June 5.Tickets available from Bournda EEC.

Jaime our brewer continues to put out some interesting beers from the Humpback Brewery. We now have four beers on tap that look like being our core range for the near future. 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.

Two new managers started with us recently. Sudhir is the new manager who comes to us after running the food and beverage department of a 150 room hotel in Sydney. Lalu is assisting him and has travelled across the Nullabor from Perth. Hopefully they will settle in well and bring some new ideas to the hotel.

ACCOMMODATION - Hotel & Motel: 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.

Best wishes,
Cliff and Sayaka
