Dinner and Drinks Becomes Happy Hour for all to Enjoy

In Uncategorized on August 25, 2009 at 9:55 am

We have switched gears a little at Nomad bar regarding Dinner and Drinks. As it has been a little difficult to draw the crowd we need to support the event, we have decided to do something everyone can enjoy. Come celebrate the foods of Chile and enjoy a Pisco Sour or two. We will be offering some Chilean style tapas. Try one or try them all this Thursday, August 27th at Nomad bar.

Tomates Rellenos con Choclo
Corn Stuffed Tomatoes
(Vegetarian but delicious enough for carnivores)

Ceviche Chile
White Fish, Shrimp, Scallops, Lime and Grapefruit juice,
Onions, Garlic, Cilantro, Carrots and Sweet Peppers

Flank Steak al Pil Pil
Grilled and Chilled Rare Flank Steak with Pebre Suace
served with mixed greens

Confites de Zanahoria
Sweet Carrot and Coconut Balls

Thank you from the very top of my full heart!

As Traveling Bistro is well into it’s second year I wanted to take a moment to offer my most sincere thanks and gratitude.  There are so many of you that I could not do this without your support and patronage. It really means the world to me. As I look to the future with even bigger dreams I know I will need you even more. So, I wanted to take this moment to recognize you.

First and foremost my family. Without my wife Beth and all her talents I would not have much success. Her willingness to help with everything print and web and PR is beyond awesome. On top of that there is no one that I would rather have running those Waffle Irons each and every Sunday. Thanks Honey! My brother Buddy, when I can have him with me in the kitchen I never have a single worry. He’s the best damn Sous Chef for me there is. I hope when he is all done feeding the movie stars that I will get to work with him for years to come. Bud you rock! My brother and sister-in-law and nephew, Zach and Nichole and little Z. I love you and appreciate your support so much. Mom in law Liz, you have helped more than you know. You have allowed Beth and I to keep our dreams alive more than once. Thanks so very much.

Next I would like to offer a special thanks Nomad Bar and Miguel Jimenez it’s owner. The partnership and the friendship mean so much. Nomad has provided a place for me to showcase Traveling Bistro and this alone has accounted for the majority of my business both at and away from Nomad. Miguel you have done a great thing for me and I will never forget that. I hope you don’t either.

Friends, supporters and patrons. You keep this little catering company and personal chef service rolling. I would be remiss if I did not name some specifically. So thank you, Christina Cagle, Emily and John Beckett, Egan Jones, Brian and Lacy Laborde, Brian and Kristin Gray, Billysteve and Laurie Korpi, Emily Jones and family, Teresa Pappas, Chris Mac, Audra Shimek, Tami (Slim) Neumann, Corona Cafe, Adele Martin, Josh Powers, Julie Craig, Orion Archung, Twitter followers (especially @MisoHungry aka The Cupcake Fairy aka Jennie Chen) all the Traveling Bistro customers over the last year and a half. Please pass this on to those that might not catch it and if I missed someone important forgive me, you know you’re appreciated.

Moving into the near future there are some events you may want to know about. Expect a redesign of the website soon. We are hoping to add some live music soon to Sunday brunches. Round 2 of Dinner ad Drinks @ Nomad. Supper Club and cookbooks in development.

Cheers and thank you,


Dinner and Drinks Round 2
