'Away Goals - Euro Chimes': Help Part 2

'Away Goals - Euro Chimes': Help Part 2

'Away Goals - Euro Chimes' - what is this?

I have explained what this is in 'Away Goals - Euro Chimes': Help Part 1, but for a recap - or to read that, and it will help to read it, click here...

So, after viewing Part 1, Getting around and to the ground - again click above to read this - we move onto the next interesting read that will also be useful to know, here is some info on where to eat and drink in Porto and/or Guimaraes which is again supplied by Ken as should be published in 'Away Goals - Euro Chimes'...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

==========

Eating and Drinking

When you're in Guimaraes, don't miss the opportunity to taste the local 'green wine' (vinho verde), and, when you need something to soak up the alcohol, perhaps some roast pork, chicken with rice, tripe stuffed with pork, or baked cod. For those with a sweet tooth, there's the rich pumpkin cake (toucinho do céu) and the croissant-shaped pastries called tortas de Guimaraes.

So you need to find some restaurants and bars.

First Porto, where you will be spoilt for choice. There are plenty around the Praca Da Batalha, where the hotels on the Club's packages are. Just west of there is the Praca Da Liberdade and running north from there, Rua Do Bonjardim and parallel to that the Avenida Dos Aliados. You can also find plenty of riverside bars, cafes and port cellars. If you're looking for something a bit different, try the beachside bar/restaurant Praia Da Luz (www.praiadaluz.pt) on the edge of the city, where the river meets the Atlantic; most nights there's music until the early hours. Or, for a real treat, try the Bogani Café, Cais De Gaia (www.boganicafe.com) famous for views over the city. For an Irish bar, try Ryan's Irish Pub, Rua Do Infante Dom Henrique.

Guimaraes is, of course, far smaller than Porto, but some pleasant restaurants and bars can be found in and around the small squares in the centre of town (near the shopping centre). We hear that the Tásquilado Bar, Rua de Santa Maria 42, advertises cool sounds - till 2am.

Port wine

If you have a taste for port wine you've come to the right place. Solar do Vinho do Porto on Rua de Entre-Quintas near the Crystal Palace in Porto is a good stopping off point where you can taste a selection of port wines with views out over the River Douro. Thisis run by the Port and Douro Wines Institute and offers tutored tastings and a selection of books and information on Douro port wine. Open: Mon-Thurs: 2pm to 8pm; Friday and Saturday: 2pm to 12pm. Closed Sundays and holidays.

So, why should YOU join the FSF?

Whether you realise it or not, the FSF are fighting your corner all of the time.

The debacle that was the Champions' League Final in Athens - the FSF were there and have collected statements and presented a report to UEFA. If we reach the final of this tournament in Turkey we will be better treated there because of the FSF.

Safe standing issues, ticket allocations, prices, kick-off times, the list is endless. We're working on all of them.

There are two Pompey die-hards on the FSF National Council and two more that regularly work on the England Fans' Embassies.

We need YOU in the FSF today. You can sign up on line at www.fsf.org.uk for just £14 a year. Your membership helps us to help you. Your voice counts. Go on, you know it makes sense!
