Jamonera is hosting a Paella and Sangria Night tonight, Monday, June 23rd. Attendees will get a tapas appetizer, a pitcher of either red or white sangria and, of course, paella. But your decision may get tough when it comes down to what type of paella you’re getting because Jamonera is offering up three options – seafood,  vegetarian and a mixed dish, which includes seafood and meat.

Dinner is $35 per person. To make reservations, call 215-922-6061 or visit http://jamonerarestaurant.com.

A Couple of Closures to Bum You Out

A Twitter follower had tipped us off that the postage stamp-sized Cafe Nhu Y had closed its doors at 8th and Christian. And after a lot of denial, we’re willing to admit that our favorite bargain banh mi spot is indeed gone for good. A similarly distressed Naked Philly confirms the closure.

And in the Italian Market, there’s the odd story about the closing of five-month old Torero Tapas Bar. The Torero web site has the paella and tapas bar moving/merging with Tabblon in Drexel Hill. The Passyunk Post reports that a neighbor says it was a landlord dispute that led to the closing.

Take a Churro Break from Shopping

One option that is sure to beckon like a siren, churros and chocolate at Jamonera. From 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday the 21st, the Midtown Village tapas hotspot will be offering churros for $8 plus some hot drinks.
