Hitting the tapas bars of Logroño at the EWBC

jamon iberico
After the EWBC Winebloggers Invitational on Friday nite, we had to get something in our stomachs so off we went to dinner in the old part of Logroño. All the meals in Spain start with jamon iberico (spanish ham), at least that’s what we got at the start of every meal, including breakfast.

After a neverending parade of food, all of which were tapas (or appetizers), we still hadn’t had enough to eat and drink so we went for a walk down the Calle Laurel, a raucaus little alleyway lined with tapas bars. Here’s just a random sample of the bars and streetlife:

pulling pints, just as cheerful there as they are here

more jamon, this time diluted by bread

now there’s a sensible table for drinks
