The demolition of the legendary Estadio Vicente Calderón, fully disappeared now, meant the demise of a lot of bars around the Paseo de los Melancólicos as well. One of those was is Taberna El Chiscón de la Ribera (Calle San Epifanio 7), across the street of the old stadium.
Still, this whole area is qualified as holy ground for Atlético fans, and this place in particular too. This was the café where supporter Margarita Luengo once picked a bouquet of carnations from a vase, twelve white, and twelve red. At a corner kick, she threw them lovingly to Milinko Pantic, her favorite player. It resulted immediately in a goal. Still to this they, at every home game the old lady lays down a bouquet of carnations at the corner flag, a tradition that has moved with the club to its new stadium too.
