Despite widespread belief in the idea that bulls are enraged by the colour red, they are actually colour blind.
Waving a red rag at a bull won’t annoy him at all. Instead, what really gets their goat is when you invite them out to a tapas restaurant and then scoff all the prawn dishes that they ordered while leaving them with just the patatas bravas that you asked for.
They hate that.
Although Torres does sound a little like toro, the Spanish word for bull, the name of this popular Sauchiehall Street restaurant is actually a Spanish surname meaning towers.
And, if you take advantage of today’s Big Deal, your dinner table will be groaning under towers of delicious tapas at one of Glasgow’s most lively Spanish restaurants.
This is how the deal works: you buy one or more vouchers for £10, book a table at Torres and then order as many tapas as you and your dining companions fancy.
The menu is packed with Spanish tapas faves such as gambas pil pil (prawns cooked in olive oil with garlic and chilli), albondigas (spicy meatballs) and tortilla Espanola (traditional Spanish omelette). There is also a selection of Torres signature dishes including sardinas a la plancha (grilled sardines) and croquetas de jamon (serrano ham croquettes).
Whatever the bill comes to, each of your vouchers is worth £22 off the total. The vouchers are valid for both food and drink so, whether you choose a beer or a cheeky wee Rioja, you can still save money with Big Deal and Torres.
Today’s no bull Big Deal is: £10 for £22 of food and drink at Torres tapas restaurant and bar; a 55% discount
