Weekend in Lisbon
Nope. Cheaper to get to from Boston, similar climate, hip museums and fantastic food and music. Not as much craft beer. Or any, really.
But who cares when you can sip this delicious cherry business right in the middle of the cobbled streets?
The tavern selling this small treat is really a dressed up counter at the edge of the sidewalk called Ginja Sem Rival, which sort of means Best Ginja. And if context is anything, it surely is.
But the best nibble and sip combo was at a little diner-ish place quite close to the cherry tavern. They served sparkling vinho verde with a meat sandwich called lombinho.
These sips and sounds along the sea mean I’ll be back soon to explore some more… and perhaps open a decent brewery.
