    Heard a rumour this morning that the popular Mikki's Place at Pera (Algarve) has been shut down by the police.
    I understand that the place was heaving when the police turned up and turfed everyone off.
    Might be just rumour of course but if anyone is thinking of heading there they might want to check first.

    Richard.

    I think, if I had a blue parrot, I might name it Mikki. What do you think?

    The Mystery of the Blue Parrot.

    Sounds like a Sherlock Holmes story. :)

    It does nort surprise me if the site has been closed down. It's a shame because it could have been a nice site. But the owners were upsetting so many peaple in the area because of the way they were doing things. So many problems and the main one being greed and lack of respect for others. I agree with others Blue parrot does look very much like the owner Mikki.

    Yes, but who starts them, and why? It's such a shame, if someone is working hard to do something properly, and it gets ruined by false rumours. Although I've got no idea whether that is the case here.

    I am pretty sure it did shut down.

    It was changing owners.

    It soon opened up again under different management.

    Hope this helps.

    JJ :cool:
