February is drawing to a close and so is the skating rink at Port Hercule's Stade Nautique. But not before the annual ice-skating championship for Monaco children and teens that takes place on Saturday. In addition to the competition there's a figure skating demonstration and entry for spectators is free of charge.
Also on Saturday the foreign residents' club CREM has arranged for its members to spend a day at the Thermes Marins. For 186 euros a member and guest have access to the health club facilities, including a 45-minute piloxing class, two 20-minute treatments and a 3-course lunch at the Hirondelle restaurant. Phone CREM on +377 97 98 01 77 if you're interested.
Joseph, the restaurant bar at the port, is promoting themed aperitifs each day of the week from 6pm to 8pm. Russian tapas and aperos are available on Tuesdays, bring a business card on Wednesdays for a free cocktail, ladies are offered a glass of champagne on Thursdays, and on Friday nights there's an 80s disco.
And finally, Monaco will soon be extending its cultural knowledge of Australia as the Monaco-Australia Association has just been approved. Good on ya Bruce!
