Pubs in Cascais

If you're in and around Cascais looking for a place to have a drink or a bite to eat why not check out the Beefeater? Its the Cascais Pub of choice for those looking for a sportsbar.

Two large screen TVs (they can show separate events) Sky, Steanta and so on to get all of the vital games. The menu has both British and Portuguese foods....

That the place is run by friends only makes it even better of course...and yes, they do have that all important fry up for breakfast.

Paul McCartney Reissues

Yes, really, you know you really do want these:

As Paul McCartney prepares to release a new album, his former label is preparing to put his solo catalog online for the first time.

Albums from McCartney and his post-Beatle group Wings will be made available across all digital platforms and in physical formats, EMI Music said Monday.

The project will stretch from his first album, "McCartney" (1970) to his most recent studio album, "Chaos and Creation in the Backyard" (2005), which received a Grammy nomination for album of the year. It will include four albums that he recorded for Columbia Records in the early 1980s.

McCartney will release his next studio album "Memory Almost Full" on June 4 internationally (one day later in North America) as part of a new deal with Hear Music, the label formed by coffee retailer Starbucks and Concord Music Group.

Who could resist Mull of Kintyre just one more time? Sigh.
