Las Chicas Que Comen

Frequency:  Monthly: 2nd Wednesday 13:15 – 16:30

Venue: Moraira

Group Leader: Lynn Clark

'I don't like her line of gossip - it's never about anyone I know.'

Las Chicas Que Comen is a group of ladies that get together each month for lunch, to enjoy fine dining, and to meet up with old friends and meet new ones. When the group was formed, it was decided to employ a system of random seating, so that meeting new people was encouraged, and the formation of cliques avoided.

We frequent restaurants mainly within the Moraira area, though we do occasionally venture to Javea, Benissa, Gata and Jesus Pobre.

The cost is from 23 to 25 euros. This includes a welcome drink, a 3 course menu, wine and water. Coffee and tip are extra unless stipulated.

We meet on the second week of the month, most times on a Wednesday and occasionally a Thursday, to try to accommodate all other activities that our U3A ladies get involved in.

You will see the write ups from some of our Chicas about a number of the restaurants we have visited and we are now starting to put those comments on to Trip Adviser too. Of course, a few restaurants have disappointed us, but in the main we get a warm reception, and are served some mouth-watering dishes.

We meet between September and June with two months off in the hot and busy summer season.

If you would like to join us, then all you need to do is email me giving me your U3A membership number and contact details. If for any reason you have already registered but have not received recent emails please re-contact me.

I look forward to welcoming you.

Lynn Clark

 

An email received from a member of the group 13/3/2019

Hi Lynn.

I just wanted to say a quick hello and a sincere thank you.

I’ve only recently joined the Las Chica’s group but you deserve praise for your continued support of the group. Today’s lunch was really enjoyable.

I know it’s hard work keeping these groups going and you do an amazing job. Thank you for everything and especially for the little extras … the favours you provided today were very much appreciated.

I really hope you feel some sense of satisfaction from all that you do because it truly is appreciated, by most of us, even though it may not feel like it sometimes.

Kind regards.

Sue Robson
