So when does the cafe get a box in the sidebar like rock hardware. Sorry I forgot that's for sponsors. Perhaps the national should post their specials as well. Mmmmmm beer.

Hi Reluctant,

Not sure whether the comment is tongue in cheek or if it does bother you that the cafe posts its weekly specials.
Yes, technically it is spam and we thought quite a bit whether we should continue on with what the last two owner and operators started with the weekly cafe post on Chockstone.
I suppose it made sense as the cafe was a long ongoing story/myth about Simey ever opening it. He eventually did and the Chockstone family shared it's journey.
See all the original posts and cafe menu threads. Ours is a new one.

The cafe has a strong climbing connection, it's a meeting place for climbers for rest days, for info and when the weather really craps out. We the owners, are all climbers and hope the cafe stays with a strong climbing connection. But we are more than accepting if the general consensus thinks it is out of order that we post on Chockstone and will cease doing so if this is the case.
Historically there have often been threads that are considered commercial - but they have had close links to climbers and are seen as a benefit.

cheers, the cafe team

It is marked as an off topic thread, so I can live with it.
Just a bit miffed that I cannot partake in the offerings from time to time...

Handy tool for weekend planning, especially luring non-climbers to Araps.

Cafe opening hours this weekend? And menu? Book me in for that.

BTW... Posts about Nati cafe are not spam. Nati cafe as anyone who has been there knows is a crucial part of the Nati/Araps climbing community which makes it the perfect thing to post about on this forum. It's a fantastic asset and would be terribly missed if it was gone... again. And everyone knows the guys running the place are not buying his and her Porsches on the revenues. They work pretty damn hard for limited financial reward. To even suggest it is spam is to be a clueless douchebag. Pardon my French. Keep up the great work guys. And keep posting your weekly status.

I wish them all the best and am fine they post.

But you need to check your French dictionary as regular posting by a business without paying advertising is Spam...

What about unpaid testimonials?

The lamb chops on Friday night were amazing! The swordfish was good too, but my fiance and I almost drew blood arguing about how to share the third lamb chop... Natimuk Cafe, food so good you'll ruin your chances of getting laid.

As a moderator of this forum I have kind of let this slip under the spam radar as the cafe is a unique offering, without a direct competitor. Unlike retail gear stores that all sell the same products, the cafe is the only one in Nati and doesn't do mail order. They have also kept to this one thread.

Chockstone also allows guidebook authors to plug their products as well. Same situation - unique product.

Hello one and all,

This weekend, we are bringing to you, straight from 'what's hip and happening' land.....the beloved Slider! Who knows how long it will be hip and happening but one thing's for sure. 'Tis a tasty little morsel. Three taste bud tingling choices -
Pulled pork
Pulled beef
Carrot and Chickpea.

We weren't so happy about the 'little' bit though so there's a good chance that our Sliders will be bigger than average.

We're looking forward to a cruisy winter's weekend. Fire on, chilling out and munching on Sliders.

Cheers
