Siesta Show Webisode 63 - Save the Chiringuitos Campaign

We have teamed up with Costa Advice Bureau and the Resident Newspaper in order to help promote the plight of all the Chiringuitos along Andalucia. Chiringuitos (beach bars/ restaurants) have been a major part of Andalucian life for over 20 years yet the Spanish government wants to remove them from the beaches! Why? Because they are trying to apply the "ley de costas" retrospectively, a law that is over 20 years old, without realising what the ramifications would be.

I fully support your campaign, the chiringuitos are unique and essential to to the economy of Spain, they are a perfect opportunity to enjoy alfresco dining within an idyllic beachside setting and the best way to enjoy Spain's national dishes. Paella, Tapas, Sangria etc. They definately cannot be relocated. I read that the rules say these estasblishments cannot occupy more than 50 per cent of the beach they are on. Surely this is not the case as the chiringuitos occupy very little space, unless there are areas which are becoming inundated with structures I cannot see what the problem is with Spain's beach laws.

it will be sad if they get rid of the beach bars "Chiringuitos" every one loves them better on the beach and with the way the ecomany is at the moment they should not close them down we love them!

Menu del dia - The easy way to a cheap meal in Spain
We headed off for a "menu del dia" for today's show.  It's a cheap way to get a three course meal in Spain.  Originally meant for the workers, to make sure they had a filling lunch, the menu del dia is a great way to get a good meal at a great price.

We go for tapas to Lo de Andres in Sabinillas
As promised, on Friday night we went to the bar/ restaurant "Lo de Andrés" in Sabinillas for tapas.  We had a great night with some truly excellent food.  I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank Andrés and his staff for their hospitality and fine food.  If you're in the area and need some good food you can find them behind the taxi rank in Sabinillas.  Well worth a visit.
