Beat Blue Monday with a Warm Hug in Inverness
Happymount opens in Inverness
It’s official! Next Monday (19 January) will be the most depressing day of the year.
Dubbed ‘Blue Monday’ by a Cardiff University psychologist Cliff Arnall because of the weather, time since Christmas, lack of motivation and rising personal debt before payday – it is the worst day out of 365 for most!
But staff at Inverness’ Heathmount Hotel - dubbed Happymount for the week - are trying to beat those January blues with a Warm Hug in the form of a cocktail, funny films chosen by customers, free games of pool and a special menu designed to boost endorphins.
Owner Fiona Newton said: “We all need cheering up at this time of year, so we’re doing our best to have some fun and make our customers happy.
“People can vote for their favourite film on Facebook and then come in and enjoy it over a special menu and cocktail. And if they give us an extra special smile we’ll even give them a real hug!”
The Happymount two course menu for £7.50 runs from Monday 19 to Sunday 26 January 2015.
The Warm Hug includes Hendricks Gin, Chambord, Merlot, cinnamon syrup and fresh raspberries served in a vanilla and pepper sugared rimmed coupe glass.
