Coconut-Encrusted Chicken Breast and Events

Okay, everyone, V and Mom are out of town, so I’m writing the email solo and I’m not great at that. I’m just going to keep it short and informational.

Don’t forget about the Prohibition Murder Mystery on Saturday, September 15th. When they get back into town on Thursday, I’ll send out more information. We will let everyone know the logistics of the event, including food and costuming, etc.

Also, the annual Fall Night To Remember Dinners will be on Friday and Saturday, November 2nd and 3rd. 7 Coursed dinner, with optional wine pairing. Rob already has most of the menu done, so we’ll be sure to post that in the next few weeks. We were just letting everyone know that we did indeed pick a day so that you can start to get your reservations in.

The special this week will be a Coconut-Encrusted Chicken Breast, topped with a Peach Chili Sauce.

Tuesday Boozeday is tonight, with $7 glass of red and white wine, house cocktails, burrata and wings.

Wednesday Cocktail Specials will feature $7 Sherry-based cocktails.

Thursday’s Wine Tasting will be a Bordeaux Tasting. But, I have a big surprise tasting coming up. I believe we’ll do it, next week, unless the wine doesn’t get here in time, in which case we will do it the following week. I don’t think we’ve ever done something like this, although I’m probably wrong. Either way, it’s gonna be really cool. Just keep looking out.

That’s it. That’s all I got……..

Murder Most Foul

Is anyone ready for a murder mystery? How about a Prohibition-themed murder mystery? I realize this is sort of an odd introduction, but we had a fun idea. I think we may have shared it with a few people, but we are officially announcing it, now. Saturday, September 15th, we will be doing a mystery/prohibition-themed/cocktail dinner. Everyone and everything will be prohibition-themed, so we’ll have costumes and speakeasy passwords, etc. We’ll also have a murder for everyone to solve. Obviously, we don’t expect you to be sober while doing your detective work, so we’ll have drink specials, along with tastings designed for the period. We’ll release more information over the next week, but we wanted to start letting everyone know what the deal is so that you guys can start getting your reservations in. On to the rest of the message.

The special for the week will be a New York Strip, topped with Scallops, Shrimp and a Chipotle Hollandaise. Surf and Turf with a twist.

Tuesday is our Boozeday, with $7 Glass of White and Red Wine, House Cocktails, Burrata and Wings.

Wednesday’s Cocktail specials will all be peach-based, especially considering how many Parker County peaches we bought from Mellissa. We gotta do something with all of them.

Thursday’s Wine Tasting is all Syrah. I’m always excited, and so I think I’m not exactly an impartial commenter, but this tasting looks good. I believe all 4 wines have 90 or above scores in various publications, with one receiving a (I believe) 93 from Spectator. It’s not as sexy as some of our tastings, but it’s damn good wine.

Ok, that’s all I got. Finish reading, go back to pretending to work, and then call us and make a reservation. See you, soon.

Stuffed Quail

Hey, dudes and dudettes.
How goes it? Is everyone enjoying this lovely weather? It’s just a balmy 111 degrees outside. Over the weekend, the Rangers recorded the hottest temperature at opening pitch in their history, so that’s something! I hate talking about the weather, honestly, but it’s just so hot outside that I can’t think or talk about anything else. It fries your brain. Fall can’t come soon enough. Anyway, on to the rest of the message.
Firstly, the special this week is wild! It’s a jalapeno cheddar stuffed quail with a peach glaze. It’s weird and delicious. It’s time to come up and branch out. Live a little.
Tuesday Boozeday is tonight, with $7 Glass of red or white wine, house cocktails, wings and burrata.
Wednesday’s Cocktail specials will all be Caribbean-themed. That way, anyone who isn’t on vacation from this oven we call Texas can at least feel like they are.
Thursday’s Wine Tasting is gonna be a little off the beaten path. We always do mostly reds because that’s what most people want to drink, typically. However, with the summer here, we’ll mix it up a bit. It’s gonna be a Rose Tasting! Don’t panic, we aren’t gonna do a bunch of blushes or sweet wines or anything. We’ll do serious Roses for serious people. If you get a wild hair, come on up at 7:00pm.
Lastly, the cellar tasting will be this Saturday, the 28th at 4:00pm.

Just me, today….

Hello, everyone. V and Mom are out, so it’s just me, here, and I’m scrambling to try to get everything ready for the week. As such, this will be a short and to the point message. But first, a question: What is your favorite “fancy” cocktail?

Tuesday Boozeday is in effect with the usual specials. Glass of select red or white wine, house cocktails, wings and burrata.

Wednesday’s Cocktail Specials will be 3 selections off of our new cocktail menu.

Thursday’s Wine Tasting will be all Cabernet Sauvignon, all night! Should be a real crowd-pleaser. In addition to the wine tasting, we’ll also be featuring a cocktail tasting, with 3 prohibition-style mini cocktails. Come in and try one or the other, or, if you’re brave (or Trey), both.

Since Mom isn’t here, I have no idea if she wants to inform you of anything with regards to the Cellar, so I’m going to assume not. Have a good night, and we’ll see you soon!

Welcome Back

Holy cow! It looks like Veronika and I brought Seattle back with us! It was short and sweet, but that was a crazy storm. Anyway, we’re back from break. Did y’all miss us? I certainly hope so. I know it’s inconvenient for everyone when we close for a week, but we need that break, to be honest. Running a small restaurant can be grueling work, and we need a reset, sometimes. We miss it when we’re gone, but it’s for the best. Everyone gets cranky when they’ve gone too long without a break, and we’re crankier than most to begin with. We’re glad to be back, though, and we have switched over to our summer menu. If you’d like to view it, go to our facebook or www.bizzis.net. Rob and Elaine outdid themselves, from what I’ve tasted so far. Let us know what you think.

Because of the new menu, there will be no special, this week. The whole menu is the special.

Tuesday Boozeday is back, but we’ve changed it a little. The wine and alcohol will remain the same, for now, but the appetizer specials will be wings and burrata, for the summer.

Wednesday cocktail specials will all feature bourbon, for no particular reason other than the fact that I like drinking it.

Thursday’s Wine Tasting will be all Washington wines to commemorate our vacation. If only we could bring the weather with us, for real.

See you soon!

Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow….

Parting is such sweet sorrow. As always, we will be closed next week (the week of July 4th) to get work done and recharge our batteries. I know what you’re all thinking; you’re thinking: “Nooo! I’m not sure we could possibly make it a week without Bizzi’s!” Well, you’re gonna have to try to get by. It’s not “Goodbye”, it’s just “See you later”. I don’t envy you.

The special this week is Veal Escalope. It looks like Antelope, but it sounds like “Antelope, eh?” Delicious!

Tuesday is our usual Tuesday Boozeday. $7 Glass of Red or White, House Cocktails, Wings, Brie en Croute and Fried Cheese.

Wednesday Cocktail Specials will all feature fresh raspberry and blueberry. I’m going to try to make some red, white and blue drinks, but no promises!

Thursday’s Wine Tasting will feature strictly American wines to celebrate July 4th. We’ll also have a little surprise waiting for anyone who gets the tasting as a way of saying “Thank you”. I’ll let everyone know what the wines are tomorrow or Thursday, but I will not tell you what the surprise is…because it’s a surprise. I hope you enjoy it.

When we get back from our Summer Break, we’ll have our brand-new Summer Lunch and Dinner Menus. Rob and Elaine better have come up with something good by the time we get back or else…. I’ll make sure to threaten them into putting out a really killer menu.

Rainy Days And Tuesdays Always Get Me Up….

So it actually rained today! Unfortunately, my car windows were down, and I got soaked running to roll them up. But I didn’t melt – a miracle, according to Michael and Veronika.

This week we are tickling your taste buds with our feature: Pan-seared Quail topped with Smoky Cherry Bourbon Sauce. Yes please.

Today (Tuesday Boozeday) we are serving $7 good stuff: white or red wine, well cocktails, brie en croute, wings, or our mozzarella with marinara.

Wednesday, we’ll have our cocktail specials. I’ll send out the specifics tomorrow, but they’ll all feature tequila to celebrate the summer.

Thursday at 7:00 p.m., the wine tasting will feature exclusively Red Blends, I’ll tell everyone what they are, tomorrow, but I’ll make sure they’re good – don’t miss it! Also, next Thursday’s wine tasting will be a 4th of July Celebration Tasting. We’ll only feature American wines and we’ll do a few other things to make a day of it. Come in for next week’s wine tasting and celebrate Independence Day with us, I’ll be doing a few special things specifically for it. It’s a surprise, so come in next week and find out.

For you Bizzi’s Wine Cellar Club Members (or wannabes), our June tasting is Saturday, June 23, at 4:00 p.m. – as always it’ll be a fun time (and you might just learn something).

We’ll be closed the week of July 4th (so Tuesday, July 3-Saturday, July 7) for family vacation week – come see us before!

Have a great week, all!

Try To Stay Awake

Happy Tuesday Boozeday, everyone! We have a busy week ahead of us so this email will be right to the point.
Much like this email, this week is going to be pretty bare!
Wednesday we are shaking up cognac cocktails. Delish!
Thursday we will not be pouring a wine tasting due to our anniversary dinner -This will be our excuse for all of our shortcomings this week!
This weeks dinner special is a Lemon Rosemary Chicken – Two herb chicken breast topped with a lemon rosemary cream sauce.
Do not forget we are going to be open for reservations ONLY on Saturday!
Sorry for the poor excuse of an email, but it is the week of our anniversary dinner…

Too Hot To Function

When you can’t find the charger for the laptop, what do you do?! You put off going upstairs to type the email on the desktop because it is 90 degrees up there… But here I am, whining (as usual) and here to tell you all about what we have planned for the week!

It is still Tuesday Boozeday – even though you probably won’t read this email until it is too late… sorry. Nonetheless, we have $7 white or red wine, house cocktails, brie en croute, wings, and fried cheese!

Wednesday (still trying to come up with a clever name for that day!) we are shaking up cocktails that feature house made rose water. Nice and light for the 100+ degree weather!

Thirsty Thursday, to keep up with “nice and light”, we are pouring some summer friendly wines. Tasting starts at 7p.m. – be there on time to guarantee a taste!

This week’s special is a yummy one! Surf & Turf – Crab, Shrimp, and Scallop topped Steak, served with herb butter – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I will eat ANYTHING topped with butter!

Fortunately/ unfortunately we are completely booked for our 7th anniversary dinner! Thank you so much for supporting us all these years!

I hope you all have a great week! See you soon!
