Way back in June Mallorca Spotlight brought you news of Gintapa, where gin and tonic and tapas would come together to attract visitors to the bars and
restaurants of Calvia. Well, the plans have now been firmed up and over 70 bars all over the area will be providing food and drink at reasonable prices each weekend in November.
The bars have been grouped together in 7 routes and each weekend – that's Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 20.00 to 24.00 – each area of Calvia will take its turn to host Gintapa. There is, of
course, a downloadable PDF with all the details of the bars, the tapas and the gins, but basically the
dates commencing Thursday, and areas are;
31st Oct – Route 1, Palma Nova and Magalluf
7th Nov – Routes 2, 3 & 4, Santa Ponsa and El Toro
14th Nov – Routes 5 & 6, Calvia and Peguera
21st Nov – Route 7, Portals and Costa d'en Blanes
These days, both tapas and G&T's are becoming much more 'international' with lots of influences from all over the world and a swift look over the participants will reveal cuisine and spices
from the distant east and some of the best gins in the world mixed with thyme, strawberries, ginger, grapes, etc to enhance the already wonderful flavours – sometimes, ice and a slice just won't
Gintapa is yet another initiative from Calvia Council to prolong the holiday season in the area and hopefully, with good products and economic prices, it will succeed.
