A Day of Tapas and Flamenco Dancing

Last year around this time, you were running from a bull. But enough about your marathon training—let’s talk Pamplona. To celebrate the running, Cafe Madrid is serving up tapas and bringing in flamenco dancers as well as a bull. Well, technically a person in a bull costume. But still.
