Their first stop on a four day stint in Boston landed them on Newbury Street at Tapeo Restaurant & Tapas Bar where an exclusive preview party and tapas tasting was held.
It was about 962 degrees on the tiny street level patio, numerous bloggers were in attendance and I have a feeling I suffered from a minor case of heat stroke. Rarely will you hear me complain about the weather; I'm one to embrace the seasons, summer heat included. Unfortunately, small crowded spaces and intense heat does nothing good for my well being. Before I became uncomfortable and had to duck out on a whim, the Freixenet Cava kept me cool and passed plates of tapas delighted.
Freixenet (pronounced "fresh-eh-net") is best known for their "black bottle bubbly" Cordon Negro Brut. It tasted refreshing (as one might expect given the name!) with flavors of crisp green apple, hints of tart lime and a long dry finish.
Here is a look at the passed tapas platters, all of which are offered on the menu at Tapeo.

I also sipped on a Key Lime Sparkler made with vanilla vodka, triple sec, lime and a touch of cream, topped with a cava. Additionally, there was a pitcher of Sparking Sangria on hand. I spun the wheel and won a "Survival Guide". Thanks Freixenet!! For up-to-the-minute info on the trucks whereabouts, follow them on Twitter or like them on Facebook.
