A bit cheeky I know, to be a tourist and then want to avoid other tourists. But, I'm visiting Lisbon next weekend for a girls weekend and we'd like to experience some good fado. I have already done a search on this forum for recommendations, but after digging a little deeper have found reviews for them saying these places (Severa, Clube de Fado) are super-touristy/expensive/mediocre. The only one that gets somewhat ok reviews is Senhor Vinho, but it also gets loads of complaints that it's very expensive and the food so-so. So we're thinking we'd go out to a good dinner, then hit a place for fado afterwards. Can anyone recommend an intimate place for fado vadio? Also, if you were in Lisbon for 72 hours (Friday through Monday), what do you think are must-sees? I'm especially interested in Portuguese culture today and the development of it (and I love food). Thank you very much for any input.
Can I make a change to the days for the Silvercoast Coffee Mornings.They are no longer on a Monday Morning. They are now held every other Friday Morning. The next one is on Friday 5th November, then every other Friday. It starts at approx 10.30 to 11 am, and it is at the same Venue, which is Le Vicky's on Zona Industrial. Caldas da Rainha. We have Ladies from all Nationalities, and everyone is made very welcome.
Congratulations to Jonathan Weightman and the Lisbon Players for their production of the Importance of Being Earnest. I went to the opening night and was very impressed with the quality of the acting and the friendly atmosphere. Anyone who likes Oscar Wilde is in for a treat. Looking forward to their next show.
