world tapas dayWhen I first heard a few months ago that Turismo España had declared that the third Thursday in June was to become known as World Tapas Day, an international celebration of tapas, I was so excited. I started thinking about activities I could either create or help promote and waited to hear more. And waited. And then waited some more. But it turned out that there was very little going on in Spain, with nothing – I repeat, NOTHING – organised for the self-proclaimed Tapas Capital of the world. And most bar owners I talked to here hadn’t even heard about it. So, big time fail, and a real disappointment. Perhaps the city will get their shit together for next year.
