This weekend, Café Madrid brings you all the fun of Spain’s annual Running of the Bulls without the risk of getting trampled, you know, by actual bulls. There will also be a lot less running (read: none) and a lot more eating great food and drinking Spanish wine. Starting at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dallas’ favorite tapas spot throws a party to celebrate this classic Spanish tradition. Flamenco dancers and live Spanish guitar music will entertain as you sip on frozen sangria. If you dress up for the occasion, a photographer will snap a souvenir shot of you in your best red and white garb with the restaurant’s “bull.” Your festive dress will also qualify you to enter the Torres Wine raffle. As an added bonus, a portion of the evening’s sales will be donated to Brother Bill’s Helping Hands, a local charity that helps out families in West Dallas living below the poverty line. Café Madrid is located at 4501 Travis St. For more information, visit cafemadrid-dallas.com, or call 214-528-1731.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
