idea, printed in one web page, that allows to all the customers to have some drink
(a beer), and eat a different "tapa", from one to the other, tuesday and wednesday,
from 19.30 to 24.00 hours, for two euros in each other.

the list and the rout there are printed in the web, and I recommend to take the
visit from all over the district, it´s very impressive to see the narrow streets,
overbooked with strange comerces and handsome people.

"wines rout"

If you want make this rout, put a pair of jeans and comfortable shoes and
go up "Ramblas", to the "Catalunya" Square, with some friends, then go down

"La Oveja Negra", the first stop in the rout, one music tavern very crowded
in weekend, then go along "Ramblas" "Ferran" and "Avinyón" street, taking
cups all over the trip, el "Aguelo", the taverns near "la Mercé", and the
Harbour, cheap and fun rout for all the drinkers.
