San Fermin Festival Celebration at Sangria

by Crave Staff

Celebrate the medieval festival of San Fermin and the running of the bulls at Sangria in Dallas with 50 cent sangria, numerous tapas specials and LIVE music all day, 11am to 11pm Wednesday, July 6, 2011.

Stop in at Sangria to hear Flamenco guitarist John Goode followed later by two Late Night DJ’s. The San Fermin Festival commemorates the 4th century martyr, Saint Fermin, who was the son of a Roman senator and who later converted to Christianity in Navarre Spain in 303 AD. After becoming a Catholic priest, St. Fermin became the first archbishop of Pamplona. 

It is believed that he was dragged to his death through the streets of Pamplona by the bulls which many now believe was the root of the annual running of the bulls.

These events were central to the plot of The Sun Also Rises, by Ernest Hemingway, which brought it to the general attention of English-speaking people. It has become probably the most internationally renowned fiesta in Spain. Over 1,000,000 people come to watch this festival.

    This place was a nightmare last night. My friends were injured by a flying table umbrella and managed did not accept any responsibility. The service was terrible from beginning to end. I expect less than stellar service on special occassions like this but they really aimed high to lower the bar last night.

    Amazing experience @ Sangria last night, I will def recommend it to family and friends, the staff servers and bartenders very friendly, was my first experience with tapas and truest me this restaurant “or tapas bar” is now one of my favorites, we got the sparkling sangria, wow the most refreshing summer drink ever and the paella was worth it the wait, almost 20 min to be made by the chef, a wonderful taste to the palad
    It was very crowded in my opinion, and the manager told us, it was because they were having a Spanish celebration going on, I’ll come back next Saturday to celebrate my birthday, and then I will try to catch more flavor with the tapas and the great sangria they make

    Thanks Lombardi’s restaurants for creating a nice bar tapas concept
