Baio Red Point (Zas) started this Friday on the wrong foot due to poor weather conditions. The rain and the wind, which picked up in the afternoon, hampered the day’s activities and reduced people’s attendance. Shops could no longer set up their stalls on the street, and activity was limited to the inside of the shops. They trust that conditions will improve this Saturday and Sunday.
In hotels, the first tapas were served for 2.50 euros, the fifth at 3.50, and cover and wine for 4 euros. At Casa Rogelio, they served up that secret first day with cheese-stuffed piquillo peppers, roller toast, and chocolate flan. This Saturday there is Raxo da Abuela Manola, Tosta Roller, and Chocolate, and on Sunday there are multicolored meats and desserts.
At the Trébol bar, the tapas are American-style longueirón and ribs; the Montreux barbecue serves montadito with ham, shrimp, and pink sauce; espeto brasileiro; and tacos from Paraguay; at the Rio Grande brewery, squid in ink with rice and raxo fillets in potato sauce; and chocolate and orange biscuits for dessert; Or Calvario, squid toast; A Baiuca, seafood paella; and O Hórreo, varied desserts. Also included are Lareira with octopus, grilled potatoes, and northern tuna with caramelized onions and wakame seaweed, and Pizzeria Venecia with octopus from the Costa da Morte.
In total, more than fifty companies with products of all kinds take part in the Red Point. From clothing and shoe stores to parapharmacies, among others. There are also activities for children, a tourist train, handicrafts, entertainment, and prizes worth a thousand euros.
