running-of-the-bulls-flyer-front-20091It’s become an official Pasadena tradition: The Running of the Bulls!! Each year, Bar Celona Restaurant & Bar hosts a weeklong celebration to honor the Pamplona festival of San Fermin. The local recreation takes place July 5 through July 9, 2009. Beginning Sunday (July 5), Bar Celona hosts an annual food festival featuring “All You Can Eat Paella.” This year, consulting chef Josef Centeno will offer bottomless servings of Vegetarian ($22); Castellana (Beef, pork, or chicken. $24); Marinaera (Seasonal Shellfish. $26); and Valenciana Paellas (Surf & Turf. $28) All Paellas are accompanied by a complimentary glass of house made red or white Sangria.

The weeklong festival culminates on Thursday, July 9, 2009 with THE FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION. Bar Celona owners Jack and Karen Huang have planned the ultimate celebration to coincide with their annual Running of the Bulls, featuring all night Happy Hour & Tapas Specials ($5. House made sangrias, select beer, and cocktails), Paella cooking demonstrations and tasting events throughout the evening; and – for those that dream of running in Pamplona – a mechanical bull in the bar for the brave of heart. House DJs spin throughout the evening in the bar, while Flamenco guitar serenades in the dining area. The official “Running of the Bulls” begins at 9:30 pm, a hilarious take on the Pamplona tradition that brings a week of celebration to conclusion with a night of laughter, food, and friends.

The “All You Can Eat” Paella offering continues every Sunday night thereafter.
