Dear Group Members,

As my roots are 50% spanish, I thought it would be nice to post my first activity here in the group, with a spanish-related event.

This time, it will be tapas at the Cordo Bar (Glockenbachviertel).

A 'tapa' is a 'lid' or 'cover.' In the early days of tapas, a slice of cheese or ham was given with your drink and placed over your drink. There is some debate over why exactly this was done:

To keep out the flies.
To hide the smell of the bad wine.
To keep the wind from blowing your drink everywhere.

Nowadays a tapa is invariably a small dish of something edible. It may be a smaller version (normally a quarter version) of something else on the menu or it may be sold exclusively as tapas. Protected content

Looking forward to seeing you there and sharing a lovely evening with you!
