We used to do this on my road in Dublin, the lady who organized died suddenly and there was nobody willing to continue the tradition. It’s Shame really I always felt it brought us all closer as a community
Bottles of Coke every couple spots next to red wine, long tables with social eating, high buildings and narrow streets...this picture is *extremely* Spanish.
This is my first post, I would've never expected it to be so successful not in a million year and I'm still flipping out. This is why i didn't choose a better picture or why I didn't give a better explanation.
I jus wanted to apologize for the inexperience (I've been in reddit for like two weeks or so) and try to explain better how this thing works.
This is called "Sopar a la fresca" wich would mean "Dinner in the cold" or something like that. It's part of a two-week harvest festival called "Sa Vermada", where we celebrate the end of summer and the wine season.
It is not compulsory, you can stay at home if you want so, but almost everybody goes out and participates. The tables are just simple wooden planks, and it depends on the house owner the nunber of tables you want to use or how many people you cook for. Everybody eats noodles and lamb as the main dish, it's part of the tradition.
It's all about the sharing and the socializing, there are no buissenes involved, just a typical village fest.
In case you want to come, you will be welcome, we celebrate it the third Friday of September, so it's never the same day of the month, and the town's name is Binissalem.
My apologise again, and thank you so much for your kindness.
Some of you asked. This is Mallorca, Spain, so the food is pretty nice too.
I'm guessing Spain or Italy. So the food is probably fantastic too.
Looks like a lot of fun, unless you really hate your neighbors. How does it work? Does everyone cook at home and then share? Or is there some sort of catering? Where do the tables come from? Do people sit in front of their houses or mix it up?
