Tip for September: a picnic at the Retiro by Magasand


So, we are back in town and it’s official, the holidays are over. We all look very suntanned but inside a terrible post-holiday depression has overcome us… no more outdoor activities either in the sea or the mountains, the majority of us are now confined to be in front of a computer.
Summer holidays are over and we have the pavement as landscape, however, we at My Little Madrid have a recommendation that will, for sure, make you feel as though coming back to the city wasn’t so terrible... as you will have the feeling again of being free among nature!!
You just have to follow our instructions:
  1. Make an appointment with a friend or many (until up to 6)
  2. The month of September is perfect!
  3. Choose a spare moment to relax and eat (2 hours will be perfect!)
  4. Go to Magasand at 4, Columela Street 
  5. Choose from their menu, some drinks, juices, salads, gazpacho, cheese, charcuterie, sandwiches... whatever you feel like... they have a very tasty and broad selection of food. I personally love it. Average price: €15/€20
  6. Ask for picnic equipment, such as a picnic basket, red square table cloth and wine bottle opener with special wood cutlery (a returnable deposit of €50 will required)
  7. Take a 3-minute walk to Retiro Park with your basket full of delicious food
  8. Look for a nice, peaceful part of Retiro where you won’t be disturbed 
  9. Enjoy!!

Pues sí, es oficial para todo el mundo, las vacaciones de verano se han acabado y nos toca volver a la oficina. Todos estamos muy morenos pero en nuestro interior crece una tristeza definida como depresión post vacacional. Se acabó el aire libre en el mar o montaña, ahora estaremos en una oficina delante de un ordenador...
Desde My Little Madrid tenemos una propuesta para hacer menos dura la vuelta y aprovechar la ciudad pensando en disfrutarla.
Solo tenéis que seguir estas sencillas instrucciones:
  1. Queda con uno o varios amigos (hasta un máximo de 6) 
  2. Elige el mes de Septiembre, es perfecto! 
  3. Tiempo para disfrutar de la actividad, recomendamos, 2 horas 
  4. Vete a Magasand en la calle Columela numero 4 (www.magasand.com
  5. Elige lo que quieras en su elaboradísimo y suculento menú, bebidas, zumos, ensaladas, gazpacho, tabla de quesos o embutidos. Nos encanta! Precio medio: 15€/20€ 
  6. Solicita que te lo preparen para picnic: cesta, mantel , abridor de botellas, cubiertos de madera, todo el kit! ( te pedirán una garantía de 50€ que será devuelta cuando traigas la cesta) 
  7. Camina durante 3 minutos hasta llegar a la puerta del Retiro 
  8. Selecciona tu espacio picnic, intentando que sea un sitio tranquilo donde tengas la sensación de estar de nuevo de vacaciones! 
  9. Disfruta!!

  1. We had great food at Las Vegas restaurants; I personally ate the mushroom ravioli. Yum! We did a full service, 3 courses, sit down meal. The waiters also provided wine and drinks during dinner.
