meat market barça style
Almost forgot to mention the Champañeria, or what I prefer to call the Best Place to Eat a Sausage and Cop a Feel. Suxata and Sheila decided to show us this Barça tradition. Basically for very, very cheap, you can buy a bottle of pink Cava, and get two tapas, which usually include a sausage sandwich, or a ham sandwich. The place looks like a butcher shop, sausages and ham thighs hanging from the ceiling. It's packed like a tin of sardines by 7 pm, with locals and tourists alike, dripping pink drinks all over the place every time someone tries to squeeze through. One guy had his hand on Suxata's behind for a while (obviously she was enjoying the experience). When we were leaving, someone actually pinched my butt. Not an ambiguous brushing, but an actual pinch. So for a good time, hit the Champañeria (that's what Sheila calls it, don't know if it's the official name).
