Free Beer!

Well, not quite… but it got your attention, didn’t it? πŸ˜‰

Toledo has a brewery that makes Domus, aka “La Cerveza De Toledo”, whose proud history goes all the way back to … erm… 2007. (Sorry, this is my Bavarian heritage scoffing here…). BUT, I have to admit, the stuff ain’t half bad.

On Friday, Carmen alerted me to the fact that they were running a two-week promotion: two bottles of the brew and one ‘special’ tapa, featuring Domus as an ingredient, for a fiver, with 27 local restaurants/bars participating.

So, today we went off to investigate.

Mussels

These mussels in creamy sauce were divine…

chicken wings

Chicken wings with caramelised onions. Lovely πŸ™‚

We scoffed more than just those, but the pics didn’t turn out so well. One of us – either my camera or I – was struggling to focus…

We may have to do this again next week.

    You tricked me! But that’s a pretty good deal, it’s *almost* free πŸ™‚

    I would go to all of those 27 restaurants, three per day πŸ™‚ You’ll hit all of them in the allotted two weeks. Problem solved.

        She’s off gallivanting with a German….I might die if I tried to do that, too, but at least I’d be drunk and my tummy would be full πŸ™‚

        Hahahaha, I now realize how that was written. She doesn’t need to be drunk or in a food coma, but it couldn’t hurt, right?

        I don’t know that I could do 27 restaurants in 9 days, but it sounds like a fun challenge. πŸ˜‰

      6 beers a night for nine nights in a row?! I’d be hospitalised! I had 3 beers this weekend (1.5 on Friday and 1.5 on Saturday) and I still have a headache!

    Seems like I’ve already got a German – and 27 restaurants in that time period is not unmanageable πŸ˜‰ I’m pretty close as we speak! And Anna has no stamina – very disappointing for a Russian – I had high hopes. I guess her German finds it endearing though πŸ˜‰

    You’re gonna be jealous: when the Belgrade restaurant I’ve been dying to go to for weeks turned out to be booked for a wedding, the manager gave me two BOXES of 4 different kinds of cake – FOR FREE! One most poppy-and-something kind is borderline orgasmic – and you KNOW I dont get this excited for cake!

        I’ve often expounded on a theory that women are bawdier than men, between themselves.

        Standards? There should be standards? Hmmm…

        (My day job includes the creation of standards… πŸ™‚ )

    Two beers and a tapa for a fiver?! That’s brilliant! I’d nearly drive down for that. I am genuinely tempted to drive down for the mussels. There is no decent seafood here and this islander misses it terribly. They look divine. Lucky sod…

    You seem to have warmed up to the taste of beer πŸ™‚ I am the opposite of you in the cake/drink contrast. Cake is lovely but not every day, whereas I get cranky if I don’t have my tipple.
