...there are always more men than women, so the men at the party are "disputado a tapas", which means that the women fight among themselves to find a partner to dance.
I was going to ask you where you are going dancing (what city) because you wrote there are more men than women. But on re-reading, I'm confused. If there are more men than women, why are the women fighting for a partner -- there should be plenty of men to choose from . . . which is why I was curious . . . :) :) Maybe you meant there are more women than men there . . . ?
Inquiring minds want to know :)
One of the definitions for "tapa" in my Michaelis dictionary is: " b) clincher, statement or argument that settles a problem; answer that imposes silence."
