Pamplona's Running of the Bulls is an event of ultimate machismo, with men hurdling down narrow streets, pursued by rampaging half-ton bulls. Cafe Madrid's running of the bulls might not be as thrilling thanks to the foam horns of its “bull,” but it could be just as fun. This annual celebration includes flamenco dancing, live music as well as regional dishes and drinks. Anyone who shows up decked out in red and white, the traditional colors of the event, can pose with the faux-bull to commemorate their “daring” dash. If running from mascots isn't your thing, fear not. Cafe Madrid will also raffle off prizes, such as gift certificates, t-shirts and, perhaps most importantly, wine. The event takes place at Cafe Madrid, 4501 Travis St., Saturday, July 7 and runs from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, visit cafemadrid-dallas.com.

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.
