So sorry, dear readers; I've been a terrible slacker-blogger. I won't bore you with my reasons. Instead, I will woo you with a gift. The gift of knowledge.
One of my favorite events of last year - and one that seems to be very much on the down low - has tickets for sale. Right now. Get them while you can - they sell out early!
Paella Lovers United (is that not the best name for an organization EVER?) is holding its 11th annual Spanish Culinary Festival on November 9, 2013. For just 39 bucks (plus service fee), you can taste tapas, pig out on piles of paella, imbibe bodacious beverages (last year, ticket price included alcohol - but the event page this year says BYOB), and fawn over Flamenco fabulousness.
In case that description didn't sell you, here are some photos from last year's festival:
