What’s on this week.

Posted on March 29, 2011 in Ronnie's News

How much happier do you feel now the clocks have gone forward and it’s officially Spring? I like it when the clocks go forward; lighter nights and warmer weather just seems to make people happier. As Last Sunday’s Macc Sabbath at Ronnie’s proved – the beer and the cocktails were flowing, the music was loud and excellent and everyone had a great time outdoors in the courtyard. Some stayed all day, some dropped in and out; it was just one of those great atmospheric Sundays at Ronnie’s.

This week promises to build on that. The entertainment and atmosphere is always what makes Ronnie’s what it is, it’s just the atmosphere gets even better this time of year:

Tuesday: We’ve got more live music than you can shake a bundle of sticks at this week and it kicks off with this week’s Open Mic night. Great live music from people who just love to play live. And we’ve also got the England International in the screens beforehand.

Wednesday: Classic cocktails night at Ronnie’s. Give a Margarita or Cosmo a try. And make it the best cocktail you’ve ever tasted with Ronnie’s premium list and our fully trained staff.

Thursday: The weekend starts here with DJ Steeve Mac. Come along and start to unwind. We bet it’s been a long week!

Friday: The weekend is officially here and Bert and Brighty are providing the music. It’s the best Friday night in town.

Saturday: We’ve got live football in the day (Check www.ronnies-bar.co.uk later this week for the full line-up) and then Steeve Mac is back to take you into Sunday morning.

Sunday: More live music here in Duke’s Court as we have Heat Four of our exclusive FOMFEST battle of the bands.

Jack Trainer: 4:00-4:45pm

Addy Oldman: 5:00-5:45pm

Rich House + Friends 6:00-6:45pm

Steller: 7:00-7:45pm

By the way we are making a special announcement for all Ronnie’s Club Card holders this week so please keep your eyes peeled for that; it will involve a free drink as well.

And finally a little bit about my favourite classic cocktail for this week, the Old Fashioned.

The Old Fashioned is a classic whiskey cocktail from the 1880s and is allegedly the first drink ever referred to as a cocktail. It is the perfect ideal of what a cocktail should contain: a spirit, a sweet, a bitter, a sour and water, but the essence of the drink is not the spirit used but in the juices produced from muddling the fruit, sugar and bitters. Typically, the Old-fashioned is made with Kentucky bourbon (because it originated in the Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky I suppose). Our house pour Bulleit Bourbon makes a great premium Old Fashioned or you can go for a super premium one with either Knob Creek or Woodford Reserve. Alternatively you can experiment with other spirits, e.g. blended Scotch or to be completely different Don Julio Blanco tequila; this makes it radically different but none the less it is still fantastic! Try one or two it really is a wonderful cocktail.

See you soon.




The heart of entertainment in Macc

PS The Friends of Mine festival has confirmed the final line up, the most recent headline act to confirm is The Cribs. It will make for a fantastic festival. And there is a strong Macclesfield music input at the festival too with Bad Lieutenant, Virginmarys, Rough Twist and the two winners of Ronnie’s Battle of the Bands all performing at the event. And you can buy your tickets with no booking fee from Ronnie’s too.

With Ronnie’s having a bar there too it will be a top quality event.
