The Best Sangria
On Wednesday, May 25, Michelle and I joined our co-workers to help celebrate the 30th birthday of Ms. Karyn Rabourn at Ibiza Wine and Tapas Bar on Carson Street. The Ibiza menu feature over 45 tapas from around the world and changes with the seasons. To those on a tight budget, the prices may be a bit daunting at first; however, a second glance at the website will reveal great happy hour specials that runs from 4:00-6:30pm every day.
Our group was literally the very first to arrive for happy hour. We chose to sit on the "outdoor" patio in the back, but were disappointed to discover that it was really indoor seating as the entire patio was surrounded by a plastic tent causing the room to feel more like a sauna than a restaurant. Michelle and I elected to split a pitcher of white wine sangria (a glass was $11.50, a pitcher was $22... we each had 4 glasses out of a pitcher). I also ordered the shrimp dumplings and fruit and cheese platter off the happy hour tapas menu while Michelle opted for a couple of that night's specials - a meat, cheese, and olive platter and some sort of cilantro lime shrimp. As anticipated, all the food was delicious. And, like any tapas place, the best part is tasting a little bit of everyone else's food. =)
