As the tapas trend has caught on, the small plates concept has been pushed to the point where some of these ostensible snacks cost upwards of $10 or $12. Vega Tapas Café is trying out a special that goes in the opposite direction, however, with a new $2 tapas menu to be offered on Tuesdays during September.

Vega Tapas chef/owner Glen Hogh (pictured) will answer the question of what $2 will get you tonight, during a free sampling from this menu, hosted by the ladies at Swirl Wines during their shop's weekly Tuesday wine tasting.

While the tapas are free, the accompanying tasting of six wines costs $10, and reservations through Swirl are required. Call 504-304-0635 for a spot.

More tapas are on tap at Swirl on Friday, Aug. 28, when local chef Dan Esses resumes his regular small plates service during the shop's weekend-kickoff wine tasting, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. In this case, you pay for tapas ($5 per plate) and get the wine tasting free. No reservations needed for Friday.
