Short, but Important

Good afternoon!

I’m just going to jump right into this week’s details. I’m not as creative as Michael is, so I’ll keep it short and sweet!

Today, as you know, is Tuesday Boozeday! Glass of red or white, well cocktail, brie, wings, or fried mozzarella for $7 each (after 4p.m.)

Wednesday we will be serving delicious cocktails- all containing mint! Light and fresh to take your mind off of the heat!

Thirsty Thursday this week is going to be (relatively) educational! Varietals 101- 4 grape varietals, 4 wines that are perfect examples of how those varietals should, look, smell, and taste. Come in to learn about wine or just come drink! We start pouring at 7 sharp…ish…

This week’s special is making me drool just thinking about it – Chicken Fried Veal topped with Duck Gravy!

We do have less than a handful of seats available for our 7th Anniversary dinner, so give us a call if you want seven delicious courses with an optional wine pairing!

 

***We will be closed on Friday for a private event, so get your Bizzi’s fix on another day!

 

Thanks for letting us do what we do and always supporting us!

Have a great week!

Wine And Cheese Tasting

We are doing something a little different for tonight’s wine tasting. We are focusing on wine and cheese pairings. So we’ll do 4 of the most famous wine pairings in the world. Each wine will come with a bit of cheese to eat with it, that way we can all expand our knowledge. Even if you don’t care about the cheese, all 4 wines are 90 point scores or above, with one of them coming in at 94 points. This will be absolutely brilliant. See you, tonight.

Quick Question

Let me ask you guys a question: would you be more interested in a Prohibition Speakeasy Night, a Murder Mystery Night, or a Movie Night? We want to do a couple of themed parties, and we can’t make up our minds. We’ll have drink specials and a special menu for each of them. Anyone who has been to one of our events knows we do it to the 9s, so we’ll make it special, whatever we do. Just help up make the decision on what our next fun event will be.

Tuesday Boozeday – $7 Glass of red or white, well cocktails, brie, wings, or fried mozzarella (After 4p.m.)

Wednesday’s drink specials are going to be cocktails that feature sparkling wine! (After 4p.m.)

Thirsty Thursday is going to be really fun this week! We are doing classic Wine and Cheese pairing – four delicious wines paired with four delicious cheeses! Pouring starts at 7p.m.

Cellar Wine Club Tasting is on Saturday, May 19 at 4p.m.

Our dinner special this week is Veal Piccata. Come get it before I eat it all!

Happy Cinco de Mayo

Hello, everyone!

It’s gonna be a bit shorter than usual because I’m pretty slammed, but the question I posed last week about what are your favorite cover songs got me thinking that it would be a far more interesting question to ask everyone what their least favorite cover songs are. Also, and this has nothing to do with cover songs, but how terrible are Paul McCartney collaborations, typically?!? For such a great artist, he really makes some terrible music when he works with other people. He did an Italian Techno Stadium Rock song that I had never heard of called “Out Of Sight”. But the most interesting thing to me about his collaborations is that two of his collaborations with other generational talent resulted in not only his worst song, but theirs as well. “Ebony and Ivory” with Stevie Wonder is not a good song, but one of the worst songs I have ever heard and certainly both McCartney and Michael Jackson’s worst song is “The Girl Is Mine”. It’s so bad that it’s almost shocking that both of the creators are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Anyway, sorry to get off on a tangent.

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

Wednesday’s Cocktail Specials will all feature our homemade coffee liqueur and all be $7.

Thursday’s Wine Tasting will be something a little different. We’re gonna have a little more interaction and a little more fun. It’s going to be a blind tasting. I’ll have tasting sheets printed out and people will be able to take their own notes and use the official Sommelier’s worksheet to try to work out the wine that you are tasting. Everyone will be on a level playing field, and, just to spice it up a bit, if anyone gets all the wines correct, they will win a prize! Some come on Thursday at 7:00pm to have a bit of fun and test yourself.

The special for the whole week is Green Chile Braised Pork with onions, garlic and Spanish
spices, all served over a bed of Spanish rice and barracho beans.

Mother’s Day Brunch is May 13th starting at 10:30am. We’ll feature a buffet, omelet station, various pastries and jams and jellies, etc. We’ll also feature cocktail and drink specials specifically for that day.

Our 7th Anniversary Wine Dinner will be on Saturday, June 9th starting at 5:00pm. I’ve already put out the dinner menu itself, and I’m going to send out the optional wine pairing sometime in the next week. We still have spots available, so call us to make a reservation (reservations are required) and come enjoy what is arguably our best feature. I think these wine dinners are where we truly have a chance to shine.

This message got longer than expected so I’ll just cut it off here and say:
See you this week!

Favorite Covers?

I had a joke or some clever intro paragraph written and ready to send, but then a song came on the radio and a thought occurred to me. So, instead, I want to pose a question to our millions upon millions of followers. What is your favorite cover song of all time. As in, what is your favorite song that was done by an artist other than the original creator? Mine is probably the Wings song “Jet” as done by Jellyfish (today, at least. ask me tomorrow and the answer will surely change). This is Michael, in case you were wondering. I’m sure V or Elaine would pick something far less obscure. But that’s why I’m posing this question to everyone else. It’s such an interesting idea, and there’s so many things that it can be judged on. How true was the cover to the original, did the new artist do something interesting with the song, does the song hit your nostalgia button, etc. It’s such a delicate thing to take art made by someone else and change it. I’m curious to see how many people even bother to answer this question and what the answers are. Anyway……

The special for the week is Caribbean Shrimp and Coconut Rice, served with Red Bell Pepper, Sauteed Onions, Pineapple, and Tossed in A Red Chili Pineapple Reduction.

Tuesday Boozeday is in effect, as always. $7 Glass of White or Red, House Cocktails, Wings, Brie en Croute and Fried Cheese. Great way to get rid of the Tuesday Blues.

Wednesday, our cocktail specials will all feature our Rosemary-infused Vodka. What better way to get into the Spring mode than to drink plants, right? It’s refreshing.

Thursday, our wine tasting will be exclusively wines from Spain. This is the most interesting tasting of the month, to me. While I realize people don’t drink a ton of French or Italian wine, and thus were able to broaden their horizons a bit with the last two wines, wines from Spain don’t get near the same level of exposure that even French and Italian wines do. I know people aren’t as interested in trying Spanish wines as they would be a lot of others, that’s a shame, because Spanish wines can be absolutely amazing, and are generally much better values than wines from France or Italy, or even the United States. I highly encourage you to at least try to come out and try the tasting. I think you’ll learn that you love Spanish wines and it’ll open up a whole new country for you to drink from.

We still have a few spots left open for Mother’s Day Brunch, so feel free to make a reservation. It’ll be buffet-style and will feature drink specials and various accoutrement. Also, our June 9th Anniversary Wine Dinner still has slots open, as well. I don’t know how fast this will fill up, since we’re only doing one night, so if you’re interested, it would be a good idea to call sooner rather than later. That will be 7-courses with an optional wine paring, starting at 5:00pm.

Lastly, Bizzi’s Cellar Tasting will be April 28th, from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.

I realize this was incredibly wordy, but I’m sure you just skipped to the end, anyway, so……sorry, not sorry. Look forward to hearing from you, see you soon, and have a great week.

French Wine Tasting

The wine tasting tonight will be French Fruit. Just like last week’s Italian tasting, we’ll be doing 4 French wines from 4 different regions to give people a chance to branch out and try new things. Things they may not feel comfortable trying, otherwise. So come on in and live a little.
