Ibiza Rocks Hotel 2008

December 26th, 2007

26-12-07 edit: Since First Choice & Thompsons website and others have named the hotel I suppose we might as well. Club Paraiso is the name. This was the original pre-party venue for Manumissions NYE 1999 bash:

ibiza rocks hotel
ibiza rocks hotel
ibiza rocks hotel

btw, “nirvana/heaven/amsterdam:” add a “d” and you have paradise (ish) – which could be nirvana, heaven etc and in Amsterdam, Club Paradiso is a live music venue thats seen every band under the sun play there – (a bit like the Dutch equivalent of the Marquee Club in London)

Back at the end of October we blogged here :

“Hopefully we’ll be able to give out some interesting news tomorrow (or maybe later this week) about an island institutions plans for 2008…”

“Earlier in the year we wanted to announce that the Kaiser Chiefs were playing Ibiza Rocks but we were on an embargo so we made an oblique reference on our Manumission dress rehearsal blog here: “a precious stone thrice over”: which was of course the chorus to the Kaiser Chiefs “Ruby” who were then annouced the next day – so on that basis here’s an oblique reference: crossroads, nelson mandela, nirvana/heaven/amsterdam, having a kip, chickens…”

ibizarockshotellogo.gifNow that Ibiza Rocks have put up their website for their new hotel we can reveal what that cryptic sentence meant:

crossroads: (sorry, we cant remember!)
nelson mandela: a reference to how Andy & Mike named Manumission: “we called it Manumission, which means freedom from slavery”
nirvana/heaven/amsterdam: – cant reveal that yet as its not publicly known – but another clue is in the very similar name of something in Amsterdam – which is coincidentally quite relevant to Ibiza Rocks…
having a kip – hotel obviously
chickens… a reference to “the egg” in san antonio

As soon as we’re allowed to say more we will ….

December 24th, 2007

Someone hasn’t told the weather gods here as today has been beautiful.. To cap it off we had another lovely sunset:
