Friday saw the opening party of the family run ‘Immer Blau’ chiringuito on the beach of Niu Blau, between Cala Pada and Mango’s just north of Santa Eulalia.
Theirs is always one of the first opening parties of the season and always attracts a big crowd, so turning up a few minutes late means a bit of a walk as the car park was so full that every car blocked in every other – it was as if they were planning an aerial photo shoot for a car manufacturer’s advert. However, as it turned out our timing was perfect, the paella was just ready to be served as we searched for a free table.
The audience comprised the usual suspects at this time of the year – predominantly other bar and restaurant owners discussing tactics and expectations for the imminent season, and planning their own opening parties.
The sun was shining, the sea was calm and both the paella and the accompanying lubricants were free. Little wonder smiles abounded as each contemplated his imminent seasonal income stream.
Remarkably the giant paella was consumed and gradually, as the sun set, the car park cleared – without the usual cacophony of car horns to alert absent drivers to the plight of those still blocked in.
Truth be known, it was a Friday afternoon and most took the occasion as a signal to start their weekend early.
On behalf of all of those who attended we’d like to thank Nito & Maria (our hosts) and their charming and capable team for a fabulous afternoon on the beach.
