Cava Spanish Restaurant & Tapas Bar will be throwing its doors open with a 24 hour fiesta from Tuesday July 3rd from 12pm until 12pm the following day to welcome the Volvo Ocean Race yachts.
Jp McMahon who will be working the 24 hours shift along with some of his hardy chefs and waiting staff comments, ‘everyone recalls the excitement and exhilaration the arrival of the first yachts caused in 2010. The first teams arrived into Galway Docks about 3am and it was mainly party goers and night clubbers that stayed out and had the opportunity witness the fun. With Cava staying open in what will be a first for Cava and possibly a Galway Restaurant, people can come for tapas and fun, stay on for the evening until the early hours to see the yachts arrive in. We’ll have a truly fiesta feel with music and special tapas to mark the occasion’. Flamenco music and DJ will set the tone.
Social media will play an important role in the event by alerting diners when boats are due to arrive and keeping them updated, while also letting followers who are not present, in on the action. Jp will be documenting his 24 hours via Twitter. You can follow the event with hashtag #cava24 .
Every night of the Volvo Ocean Race will have a party in the ‘The Irish Village at The West End’. The idea being that once the Race Village closes at the Docks the party moves to the West End with streets closing from 10pm until 2am.
