BARCELONA AGENDA 18.7.16- 24.7.16

Thank goddess I get to write the blog from home this week, the nomad working thingy is kind of cool when you want to keep travelling and discovering new things but its exhausting! I rather prefer to write it from my new flat terrace in Gracia while the neighbor plays mariachis music (I hope it doesn’t turn into reggaeton).

Next week I will be in south Spain, which I love but its going to be sooooo hot! People, if you think weather in Barcelona is suffocating wait until September to go down south…

I am sure that you have noticed that different neighborhoods in Barcelona as Raval and Poble Sec have started their summer festivities, it´s always a good option to have a walk around and discover what´s up every day of the week. We saw some events that you might find interesting, let´s check them out! 😉

MONDAY 18TH OF JULY | SUMMER ACOUSTIC 2016

This is another initiative where you can see the compromise of this city with culture and artists. The festival organizers will give the opportunity to different song writers and unknown bands to perform in front of an audience who can donate money to their preferred performers.

There will be some  workshops  from professionals in the industry who will give free advice to all the “to be starts” playing in Barcelona during the month of July. There will be concerts all around the city so it’s a great idea to visit different spaces and discover new bars. On Monday most of the concerts are in Raval area so not a bad idea for a bar crawl around the neighborhood!

TUESDAY 19TH OF JULY | VEGAN MEXICAN TAPAS AFTER WORK

There are too many words I like about this afterwork. After my first real vegan experience last week by the hand of Tribuvegana I feel closer to this kind of food and lifestyle. Is not like I am going to stop eating meat from one day to another but it is very interesting how easy is to cook amazingly tasty dishes in no time that make you feel good and healthy.

The innitiative of this restaurant is quite cool, appart from the vegan dishes everyhing is gloten free. I love Mexican food as well, specially if it comes by the hand of frozen margaritas! For sure going to TikTako on Tuesday, see you around!

WEDNESDAY 20TH OF JULY | RIU ESTIU

So I had to change the event on Wednesday because apparently not everybody was welcome to come even if they did an open event…

Instead let’s laugh about it and keep the party up in Poble Sec with a humor festival this Wednesday, perfect plan to relax a bit during the working week.

It has the shape of a street party with different bars outdoors so it seems quite cool, let’s check it out to see what’s cracking.

THURSDAY 21ST OF JULY | CIRCUS KLEZMER

I understand you cannot keep up with the partying and drinking every day of the week (specially if you have to work and are not the lucky one on holidays). Thus, its time to introduce something cultural in the agenda.

A couple of weeks ago we introduced GREC festival with a few events which will go on until the end of the month. They have different areas of performance as theater, music, dance, etc. One of the areas I enjoy the most is circus, I read great reviews about  Circus Klezmer, a show that has been travelling around The World and doesn’t leave anyone indiferent.  This is the only play thy will do in Barcelona!

Tickets are only between 15 and 20€, more info here.

FRIDAY 22ND OF JULY | EL RABIPELAO GRACIA

Another one of my Tinder dates, this one a bit more successful (really liked the guy), brought me to El Rabipelao in Gracia. We went only for drinks because it was a first date and, as you know, getting dinner with strangers can get a bit awkward…

We saw a lot of yummy looking food while we were there and now checking their website at 2pm  with an empty stomach is killing me. For sure I am going back there to try their Venezuelan dishes (cannot wait to have one of those arepas in my hands) , service was pretty nice, the bar decoration is quite unique and they have cocktails for dessert. Perfect plan for a Friday, right?

The place is quite small so you better book in advance just in case 😉

SATURDAY 23RD OF JULY | JUICE ROOFTOP PARTY

Everybody loves roof parties, and this one is free so double score for the organizers! The event is run  by Juice Bcn and will be taking place at the terrace of Catwalk Barcelona.

SUNDAY 24TH OF JULY | CONFESIONES DE UN SOLTERO

La caja Fuerte is organizing plenty of events every week, this Sunday they are bringing the humorist Elías Puente, who will speak about the reasons why is he still single (I could give him some tips as well…)

The monologue will be in Spanish, as I always say, the perfect occasion to get more involved in the Spanish culture and meet some new and interesting people. It´s free for associates or 3€ to get your pass that will give you free access to more of their events 😉

Hope you like the selection and have enough free time to go to the different events! Cheers ☮ & ♥
