3 nights in Barcelona-help?

Hi All,

I am traveling to Barcelona for my first time in a couple of weeks with a co-worker. We are staying in El Raval and plan on having breakfast at the boqueria everyday. I think I've read every single thread here, and now have a few questions and need a gut check on a few places that have received mixed reviews on the board.

I didn't get the news early enough to book Tickets OR 41 degrees (sucks!). Am interested in that type of experience, but also tapas, cafes, beer/wine/cocktail bars as well. Also, we thought about making the trek to Can Roca, but with only 3 days we didn't think we could spend that much time traveling back and forth.

We arrive Friday morning. The only seats I have so far are:

Friday Dinner- either Hisop or Comerc24
Saturday Lunch- Cinc Sentits for their lunch only Gastromic Tasting.
Sunday Dinner at Paco Meralgo.

I've seen mixed reviews for Comerc24 and Cinc Sentits on this board. Can I do better for both meals?

Where can I watch the Sunday Barca game with lots of rabid Barca fans before we go to Paco Meralgo?

If I do keep the lunch at Cinc Sentits I was thinking about tapas for dinner that night with plenty of wine to wash down..maybe a tapas crawl? Any recommendations there would be helpful.

Saturday dinner is also vacant....paella? non-modern catalan?

Thanks in advance.
