Tapas bars

The trouble with tapas bars is that people hear the word wrong. They hear it as "topless."

So if you invite someone along, they are either shocked at the invitation, or else very disappointed when they get there.

But tapas just means snackj, or maybe "bar food" in Spanish. Anyway, we went out to a tapas place, which means the food comes on little plates that we share, and we keep ordering little plates until we are full. It's a fun system.

Also, there was live music from a local Colombian band my wife likes: Casolando.

The most peculiar moment was when a 40 year old woman started hitting on my 23 year old son. He handled it graciously at least.

Rhyme of the day:

No one was nude
But the food
Was good.
