Tapas and More Tapas

Last night we took a tapas tour. Three restaurants and about 15 different different types of tapas. I was the best at drinking from the parron*

This unidentifed member of our group came in a close second

*From Wikipedia - To drink from a porron, a beginner starts by bringing the spout very close to his mouth and tilts it forward slowly so the beak points towards the teeth. Once the liquid starts coming out, the porró is pulled away from the face while the drinker looks up. To finish drinking, a beginner lowers the porró and brings it back down and closer to the mouth again before stopping, quickly tilting the spout up at the last moment so there is no spillage.
A regular user can start and stop drinking from the porró with the spout held at a distance without spilling a drop.
