I don't think that the answers are serious.

The word dinner is used interchangeably with lunch anywhere north of London, not just in Scotland.

Also it may have been de rigueur 30 years ago in a Spanish bar to throw your olive stones, napkins, toothpicks, etc. on the floor. I think that's changed now, either due to EU hygiene regulations or general changes in attitude. It's pretty rare now to go into a Spanish bar or cafeteria and crunch your way to the bar.

Still fairly common in small tapas/pintxos bars. Not in the more stylish places though.

Indeed Noel, not a question of cash availability but that some of the very best tapas bars in Barcelona, Zaragoza, Madrid, and Jerez are neighborhood joints of ultimate simplilcity but at which the tapas served are original and excellent and at which one can find excellent companionship to discuss the culinary and wine offerings.

How right you are, Daniel. Money is not the issue. True love for the food, the soul of the region, is.

May I add Logroño and San Sebastian as well? I was a bit disappointed in Bilbao, except for Cafe Irvña that is.

Best,
