We did it! A very special night out with 45 guests who were here all week for conference meetings, and who asked me to arrange something nice for their final evening in Sevilla. And it was fabulous. But I couldn’t have done it without these two… nor without this guy…
And special thanks to the always fabulous Vineria San Telmo team. They are the best! And the best compliment ever? That we turned a corporate event into something that felt very personal. 🙂
Getting the We Love Tapas team all together at once can be a bit like herding cats, which isn’t really surprising when talking about four (including me) busy free-lancers. But we finally managed to find a few hours for a nice pre-Christmas lunch to catch up and connect. First we did a little Tapas Research, trying out a new bar (with mixed results) and then ended up for a “dessert” course of cheese and sherry at Palo Cortao. Good times.
Ryan, plotting world domination…
Comes a time during every new We Love Tapas guide’s training period when they do a practice tour with a couple of specially chosen
victims “clients”, and me tagging along to “observe and intimidate”. 😉
This time up I called once again upon dynamic duo Ang & Ryan (aka @JetsLikeTaxis) for their services. It was their third time and I have to say they are really getting the hang of it. So much so that next time I might just be able to stay home and wait for their report.
Most uncharacteristically *ahem* the tour ended with a penúltima (or three) at The Office (aka La Azotea Santa Cruz). As you can see, nobody was the slightest bit inebriated. Thanks again, guys!
And it also seemed like the ideal time to introduce the new Sherry & Tapas tour by We Love Tapas. Very excited about this one…
Look for sherry events happening in your area on the Sherry Week Website.
Met up with the fabulous Victor (@welovemalaga) who happened to be in town for the day. Victor is not only my very dear friend but is also my biz partner with We Love Tapas (he runs the Málaga branch). And as we had both spent time in Galicia this summer we decided to “relive” those moments at El Rincón Gallego del Pulpo, a local bar that was long overdue a visit.
Great visit, great brainstorming session, along with great food and (imho) the best beer in Spain, Estrella Galicia. As a result, lots of new stuff being planned for both branches of We Love Tapas. Stay tuned!
Meet Emily! The newest member of my fabulous We Love Tapas team. I’ve known about Emily for quite some time as she is good friends with a few other good friends of mine. Awhile back she was recommended as a possible guide for WLT, but at the time there were no openings. Lately a new position has become available and, although I have received several CVs, I wasn’t “feeling” the applicants, if you know what I mean. Then my friend Juan reminded me about Emily and I knew from our first meeting that she would be a perfect match. It also fits with the way the original WLT team came together, very organically, with one connection leading to another. Just like this time. We are all very pleased to have Emily with us.
