A veritable fiesta of tapas, cocktails and amicable hubub was shared at Ox and Angela on 17 Avenue Calgary last night.

The lively crowd enjoyed an array of pintxo including bacalao (salt cod) fritters, marinated olives, gilda (olives stuffed with red pepper and anchovy), spiced almonds, paella, roasted chicken, mushrooms on toasted bread, and of course churros.

Restauranteurs Kelly Black and Jayme MacFayden wanted to showcase the true meaning of the Spanish dinner - La Cena.

Libations included a spicy sangria, refreshing mojito and wine from Torres: Salmos 2009 (a garnacha tinta, syrah and carinena blend- and CSL's favourite) and personal favourite of guest Mireia Torres Maczassek (daughter of Mr. Torres), Perpetual 2009, a blend of Carinena and carnacha tinta.
