For centuries Sociedads have been a place for Basque men to congregate away from their families. Here men prepare food, dine, drink, and share stories. Attending Sociedads after work continues to be a strong Basque tradition. Until recently, women were not allowed entrance to Sociedads - Strange...! Here's some footage of some Basque friends from the Zarautz Surf Club enjoying some goodies at a local Sociedad.
