According to Riotimesonline, the event was originally designed to raise the profile of Spanish Tapas. This was a move that Felipe Chagas, manager of Venga in Ipanema wanted to be a huge success. Once people get the taste for Tapas, they should hopefully want to sample more dishes.
To assist with a person's health, King Alfonso X ordered all bars to serve small snacks with every glass of wine. King Alfonso X had discovered that eating this way, was beneficial for his illness. In fact, he made a complete recovery and that's why he ordered tavern's to serve food in this way. Since that time, Tapas has taken on new meaning and grown in popularity. However, the way in which it is eaten has never changed.
Tapas was also created to help conversation and is perfect for groups, couples, or those wanting a light meal. Tapas is served in a relaxed environment and is perfect for a family outing. All participating restaurants have come up with a specific, tasting menu of their most popular dishes for the event, according to Cox&Kings.
So if you missed the RIO DE JANEIRO event, there is still time to catch the São Paulo event. It is on until August 12th.
