Advance gastronomy alert: TaPalma 2016

Tens of thousands of tapas in October

If you fancy booking a trip to Mallorca to coincide with the island's top tapas event, then here are the dates to do it - 19th to 22nd October 2016. Yes, it's TaPalma XII, four glorious days of really economically priced food and drink taking place in Palma.

If you like eating socially, i.e. sitting at a bar chatting, nibbling and sipping, then this is the event for you, and you get a bit of exercise thrown in for free as you stroll nonchalantly from bar to bar.

We're still at the planning stage so exact numbers aren't known, but usually there are about 50 bars involved, all organised into different easy to follow routes so you won't get lost or overdo it and this year there'll be a new, strictly liquid, route to follow; D-COPAS.

When the Spanish go out for a drink (a copa) they go out 'de copas' so this route is a special cocktail/long drinks tour of the city's fashionable bars which can be interspersed with tapas along the way.

Nearer to the time we'll have all the details, bars, maps, routes and so on, so keep an eye out for it if our gallery of delicious looking tapas (priced at about €2 including a drink) has whetted your appetite.
