A First Look & First Taste -- of what The Spanish Square has to offer all while enjoying one of Spain’s biggest traditions, Doce Uvas de la Suerte.
Since 1909 it has been a tradition in Spain to ring in the New Year by eating 12 grapes, one for each stroke of midnight. It is all to ensure good luck and good health all year long. Owners of The Spanish Square, husband and wife duo Manuel Moreno and Mara Baer, invite you to ring in the Spanish New Year in style and celebrate the 12 grapes at an open house.
You will enjoy fine Spanish wine, passed tapas and of course the Spanish grapes!
