Club of Iberia’s First Event (Madrid)
October 31, 2015
Saturday, 31 October, Malasaña, Madrid (Metro Tribunal)
15:00–17:00: Degustación de té at Black Pepper & Co, C/ San Vicente Ferrer 10, 28004, Madrid.
Cost: 5€, which covers a tasting of six teas and a light lunch. The best value tea tasting in Madrid! Of course, if money is tight please let me know and we will certainly find an affordable solution.
Black Pepper & Co is an extremely well-stocked tea and spice shop, and will be providing a tasting of a variety of interesting teas (that are not available in DIA or Carrefour!). They will also be pairing the teas with a light lunch so we can taste some of their rarer spices.
Also, if you have any dietary requirements, please let me know.
17:00–19:15: Talks from MHC alums in Spain, at C/ San Vicente Ferrer 22, Ext, 1º, Dcha 1, 28004, Madrid.
Programme of Talks:
– The Joys and Challenges of Teaching Spanish in Spain, Raquel Malpelo ’02
– Let Me Tell You a Story: My Experience of Storytelling, Ana Fraile ’90

20:00–21:00: Flamenco workshop at El Cotijo Taberna Flamenco (Metro: Portazo, Linea 1), Mercado Numancia, local 9, C/ Josefa Diaz, 4. 28038 – Madrid, (entrada por Pico de la Maliciosa, s/n)
Cost: 5€ for an hour-long workshop in the art of flamenco.
21:00–Late: Dinner and a flamenco show at El Cotijo Taberna Flamenco. We can see if we can use our new-found flamenco knowledge to better understand the show! The dinner will be a three-course meal with drinks and, after some gruelling taste-testing, I can confirm that the food is delicious.
Cost: 20€ for the dinner and flamenco show. The show will start around 22:15, meaning we will have plenty of time for chatting as well!
