Triple attraction of “PAtaPA” trail
A free shuttle service is one of the new innovations for the tenth edition of “PAtaPA” in Los Realejos until December 1st.
This is being operated on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8pm to 10.30pm following an agreement between the local council and the taxi association. It means people can enjoy the wine as well as the food without breaching any driving rules.
The free transportation offers specific stops in plaza de Las Flores de San Agustín, plaza de La Unión de Realejo Alto and the areas around the 22 participating restaurants.
Another new idea is the ability to vote for your favourite dish via smartphone devices, accessible by reading a QR code or with the direct link www.patapa.es. Here, you can also post pictures and reviews.
Details of the tapas route were announced at Tasca Channo which won the prize last year as the public’s favourite. The Mayor, Manuel Domínguez was joined by councillor for the area, Isabel Socorro and head of the local business association (ASEM-CO), Juan Carlos Velázquez.
All the dishes offered are 2.50 euros to include a glass of wine and the public can vote for the best. A panel of judges will select their choices of the best traditional cover and the most innovative. Those who vote also stand to win prizes, such as a break for two on the mainland, a weekend in Tacoronte, wine tasting courses and lunches and dinners. All those who choose to do so through computer stand to win a trip for two to La Gomera.
The Mayor said he hoped people would make a point of enjoying the tapas route as it offered a triple attraction – good tapas, the best wines and a chance to win a prize.
