The end of another week – and what a nice couple of days. Yesterday Maureen headed off for the “4a Ruta De La Tapa De Galera” tapas competition in the morning while I got some quiet work done in the cave and put up some new lighting – though this isn’t permanent stuff as I want to bring some much better lights over next time we’re here – I’m short of basic materials like power supplies after a few incidents (ok, explosions).
Last night we once again joined others in the town to check out the Tapas competition but it turns out it only happens during the day – so instead we went off to one bar offering 14 bottles of beer in a bucket of ice for 9 Euros!! Can’t be bad.
Basically the idea is commercial – you go have a beer or a coke (some say not coffee) and get free tapas – you have a sheet of paper for 6 bars and in order to put your vote in for the best, you have to go to all 6 – it’s basically just a way to drum up business. The drinks are cheap, the food is free so everyone wins.
Today we went down town to do the afternoon session – if I never drink a coke again it won’t be too soon. The winner – La Posa – a combination of decent grub and fast service. And the loser? Bar Cazador – quite the opposite – the most unappealing tapas we’d been served to date – and the service was awful. Like many of the Brits we’d never been to that bar before and it doesn’t look like we’ll be back.
All in all a pleasant way to spend a few hours.
