Whether you go to a league game or the NCAA final, the Stanley Cup or the Superbowl you have to have something very clear: here we have not only come to cheer on the teams, we have come to feel the intense atmosphere and How not to enjoy the food. Yes, those American (guilty) pleasures that we like so much: that if puppies, that if popcorn, nachos, ice cream, pizzas, cotton candy, and even a tasty 'clam chowder' (typical clam chowder from Boston and the bay from San Francisco).

The success of the pop up concept has spread in recent years throughout the world. Perishable proposals become the most desired, unique opportunities. For a variable time the promoters use all their weapons to get attention: the call of the organic and the natural; the location in places normally inaccessible to ordinary citizens; the design by great architects or interior designers… In addition, they usually know perfectly which potential clients they are targeting, and the quality is usually optimal.

Octopus on the island of Ons. For those mysteries of life, the pulpeiras that are most famous in Galicia are those of Carballiño, in Ourense, the only non-coastal Galician province, but there is unanimity that the best octopus is fished in Ons, in the Pontevedra estuary. The Cies Islands have more fame since the beach of Rhodes led one of those rankings so subjective but that we like the best beaches in the world, although Ons, half an hour by boat from Bueu, is inhabited all year round, it also forms part of the national park, it also has great beaches and especially it eats infinitely better.

& Iquest; Are you attracted to mezcal? This is an excellent place to try it: a restaurant mezcalería that seeks to give space to the artisanal mezcal culture (they make their own) and traditional Mexican food. They will offer you a good selection of the drink that has replaced tequila in their 'boom', accompanied by excellent local cuisine (with meat, fish, vegetables and fresh and local products), inside two floors of the premises or in your patio outdoors overlooking Coyoacán park.

I met Joan Carles Ibáñez on a rainy Saturday ("It was raining, but nothing can heaven where there is a heart") from a distant November 2007. I met him in the Rincon de Can Fabes, next to Santi Santamaría. That restaurant (that way of seeing life and gastronomy) that marked us so few.

La Barceloneta is a charismatic popular and bustling neighborhood that has known how to live outside the big city that engulfs it. Of marine and industrial origin, its streets ordered in the eighteenth century by the engineer Juan Martín Cermeño are developed around the Plaza de la Barceloneta-chaired by the church of San Miguel- and that of the poet Boscá, contemporary of Garcílaso de la Vega .

& Iquest; But what exactly is vermouth? It is a fortified wine to which herbs are added (each master has its booklet), neutral alcohol and sugar, and which has its roots in France, Italy and Spain (the most famous is that of Reus, in Tarragona). It is usually served accompanied by a slice of orange (if it is red) or lemon (if it is white) and, often, with a little seltz water (the soda of a lifetime).

& Iquest; But where does a Madrid guide start? “On kilometer zero of the Puerta del Sol; from there, all the routes depart from the books we read as children of 'Create your own adventure' ”, Ángeles tells me while we leave the Bear and the Madroño behind. The index says it all: "Take a break in Olavide Square" or "You can't stop seeing the graveyard that isn't holy."

“WHY GO? Because it's New York history. Few places are older than Katz's: 125 just turned this May (the Empire State, for example, is only 82, counts). But it is also a story that is savored in their pastrami, corned beef, tongue, turkey or tortilla sandwiches (with all the above), which follow the same recipe since 1888.

THE ADVENTURE OF ROCAMADOUR CHEESE This gastro rally must be done on wheels and motor, going up and down the hills of its steep orography. But be careful, not too fast because a cheese farm can appear in any corner. The large part of the Lot's surface is protected within a natural park called Causses du Quercy.

1. BIKE RIDE THROUGH THE ARNO Imagine the city once upon a time is not difficult. Paving stones, medieval towers and an army of statues speak of thirteen, quattrocento and cinquecento with the same fluidity as yesterday. Rent a bike and follow the course of the Arno, crossing the bridges and rioni (neighborhoods) of the city.

Sport and gastronomy are reasons for optimism in this gray time that devours us. Just as when the Red wins or when Rafa Nadal raises the cup in Roland Garros, there are people who feel Spanish pride, I am excited (I admit it shamelessly) to see how my countrymen succeed outside. I live his successes as my own, especially when it comes to large-scale projects that also require a lot of investment.

The party was screwed sometime in that distant July 1999. The last century. Calatrava built castles in the air, we collected convertibles with balance mortgages and the face of a cook (of a cook!) Was the cover of El País Semanal with the headline: "Ferran Adrià, the best chef in the world".

Madrid is Madrid in May and on the back of a taxi, or it is not (I quote a big one). Madrid is Madrid precisely now, when the sun paints the asphalt of honey and toast, now when the streets disguise themselves as dance floors and each terrace is a jacuzzi with three friends and a blank notebook. Madrid is also the Madrid of the impossible sunsets (sunset in the temple of Debod), the Alcazar brothers on the Gran Vía and the girls with shroud on the table drinking Juan Bravo.

1 AND 2. DELIVER IN THE EXTREME Let's be honest. In Leipzig, on average, you don't eat well. Or at least, a Spanish of 1.70 meters and 13% body fat does not eat well. Therefore, it is best to look for places to enjoy a different environment and, at least, take a good anecdote home.

The Anchor Bar looks like a biker bar on Route 66, with a plethora of hookahs hanging on the walls and ceiling: fun, life-size figures of characters, angel sculptures, car license plates and various signs cover the entire premises. And, of course, their flags and their 'God Bless America' are not lacking in every corner.
