Hey, guys. We closed early, last night, because of the storm….(sad trombone sound). Well, we can’t be right 100% of the time, even if we’re close. The wine tasting tonight is all Red Blends. I attached the tasting notes to this post, as well. Shockingly enough, the Chilean wine is probably the best one. It’s amazing. Hope we see you, tonight.
P.S. We have the Anniversary Wine Dinner Menu done, and now we’re just formatting it, and then I’ll send it out to everyone.
Happy Easter Week! Sort of an inauspicious start to the week, but have a little faith. It’s gonna be a good week! The final season of Game of Thrones started on Sunday, and that’s great news for both people who hate the show and people who love it. If you hate it, its ending soon. And if you love it, you get to watch it. The only people losing out are the people who don’t care about it but now have to hear about it constantly. Including right now.
The special for the week is Fried Catfish and Shrimp with a Chipotle Tartar Sauce, thus continuing the trend of home/southern cooking. Hope you like it.
Tuesday Boozeday is tonight, with $7 Wings, Brie en Croute, Glass of House Red or White and House Cocktails.
Wednesday’s Cocktail Specials will all be green, to celebrate the Dallas Stars being in the playoffs against the Nashville Predators.
Thursday’s Wine Tasting will be Red Blends from around the world. Maybe a Bordeaux, Rioja, something from South America and a California Meritage Blend. I’ll send out specifics when I get them picked, I’m just brainstorming now. It will be 4 Red Blends from 4 different areas around the world. Everyone likes a blend.
Have a good week. Unless you decide to come in to Bizzi’s, in which case have a GREAT week!
I’m nothing if not slightly petty. It must be genetic.
As an homage to Dirk and the fact that he might literally be the greatest human being of all time, tonight’s wine tasting is all German wines. I wanted to give everyone a chance to see that Dirk isn’t the only German import that is amazing. Granted, he’s the best of all of them, but still. There’s no shame in coming in second place if Dirk is first.
Here are the tasting notes. I know people are always a little hesitant to taste German wines, because they just associate them with sweet Riesling. But they have way more to offer than just sweet wines. They also do amazing Pinot Noir. Come up and give it a shot (pun intended).
German Wine Tasting Notes
The Whiskey Dinner was last Thursday, and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Now, I’m not a very accurate judge because I had to do quality control that night. And the more quality control I did, the better everything else got! Anyway, we always forget to take pictures and have other people send us their pictures from events, so apologies for that. I know people enjoy it when we have a little more of an online presence. I’m just not a super “online presence” kind of guy. But I have a potential solution for the next event we do (besides just trying to remember to take pictures). We’re going to have a little competition to see who sends us the best picture. Winner will get something nice of my choosing. Maybe a bottle of wine, maybe something crafty and homeade (by V), we’ll see. The next event will be our ANNIVERSARY! BIZZI’S IN THE HOUSE! We’ll be turning 8 the first week of June and we’ll have an amazing Wine Dinner to celebrate. I’ll send you guys the menu next week and the wine and all that. Just know that you should be here to celebrate with us.
Special this week is Beef Tenderloin Filet Tips tossed with Brown Gravy, Garlic and Onions, served with Mashed Potatoes and Vegetables. Home cooking for the win. But, you know, fancy home cooking. The desserts to start the week will be Lemoncello Cake with Marscapone and German Chocolate Cake in a Glass.
Tuesday Boozeday is tonight with $7 Wings, Burrata, House Glass of Red and White and House Cocktails.
Wednesday’s Cocktail Specials will all feature Sparkling Wine
Thursday’s Wine Tasting will be all German Wines to celebrate the one and only Dirk Nowitzki. Unless you’re soulless, you love The Big German. So, regardless of what happens, tonight, we’re taking Thursday to pay homage to the greatest sportsman in the history of Dallas. We’ll do a few reds and a white or two, but all from Germany. So, not only can you drink amazing and interesting wine, you can think about how awesome Dirk is. Win-win.
That’s all I got. Although, I’d just like to re-iterate that Dirk is the best.
We are still cleaning up from the Whiskey Dinner, which was a blast. So, just to make sure that we are ready to go, we will not open until 3:00pm on Friday, April 5th. Once we open, it will be business as usual (I hope!). Just a heads up to everyone.
It’s a big week! I guess I say that every week, for various reasons, but it really is a big week this week! The Whiskey Dinner is this week. On Thursday, at 7:00pm. Just as a refresher, I’ve re-posted the menu that we’ll be serving. It’s a 4-course dinner with paired whiskeys for $65. We have a few spots left so if you’d like a reservation, give us a call. So, to reiterate, WHISKEY DINNER ON THURSDAY AT 7:00PM, CALL IF YOU WANT TO COME! AND WE WILL BE CLOSED ALL DAY FOR THAT EVENT. Ok, now that the important stuff is out of the way….
We put out the Bizzi’s Spring menu, for both lunch and dinner, last week. So come get a taste of Spring.
This week’s special will be Shrimp & Crawfish Etoufee with White Rice.
Tuesday Boozeday is tonight with $7 Wings, Burrata, Glasses of House Red & White Wine and House Cocktails.
Wednesday’s Cocktail Specials will be Dealer’s Choice. I’m in a mood to do things my way, this week. So if you want a $7 cocktail special on Wednesday, you’ll drink what I want you to drink (within reason).
Thursday, as has already been discussed, is the WHISKEY DINNER!
Bizzi’s Wine Club Members and Wannabes: Wine tasting is Saturday, April 6 at 4:00 p.m. Eight wines with light snacks — we look for limited production, unusual, interesting wines, and give you a little education with your fun. We will start right on time, because we have to vacate our Event Room for a birthday party (for one who shall remain unnamed — although we’ll share some bubbly at Wine Tasting for you!).
It’s an exciting week! Let’s kick this pig!
Tonight’s Wine Tasting will be all Washington Wines. We have a Viognier, a Barbera, and two Cabs, the second one being from Champoux Vineyard. Hope we see you, tonight.
Tonight’s wine tasting is all Argentina wines. We’ll have a Chardonnay, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Good times.
I actually genuinely forgot to do the email, yesterday. We got so busy planning for the Whiskey Dinner and a few other events we’re doing that are coming up (so keep your eyes open) that we blew right through my prep time for the coming week. Now I know that we make this whole restaurant thing seem effortless, while also looking absolutely stunning doing it, but it’s hard work. So that’s just a long way of saying: “Sorry, not sorry.”
Just a heads-up for everyone, as well, the Whiskey Dinner (the menu is posted on our website and lower on this page) is filling up. I believe it will be booked up by the end of this weekend, although I am often wrong. For anyone that is interested in coming, I’d call sooner than later.
This week’s special is Mexican Cordon Bleu with Chorizo, Pepperjack and a Green Chili Cream Sauce
Wednesday’s Cocktail Specials will all feature Jalapeno Tequila
Thursday’s Wine Tasting will be all Argentina Wines. I promised a couple of regulars, here, that I would do an Argentina Tasting a few months ago and I did, but they didn’t come in, so I’m going for round 2, here with the hopes that they see it. ARGENTINA TASTING THIS THURSDAY AT 7:00 FEATURING MALBEC, CHARDONNAY, CABERNET FRANC AND CABERNET SAUVIGNON! BE THERE OR BE SQUARE!
See y’all this week!
