“Hand- Made Mexican” 5-Course
$40 Five-Course Dinner:
Mexican Pop-Up Dinner Party
to Benefit Mexico City Victims
Uptown Billiards’ new banquet chef, Cynthia Vigil, is preparing a 5-course “Hand Made Mexican” dinner for a great cause on October 2 at “The Commons” at SE Hawthorn & 9th. The date and venue were set before her start at Uptown and since the tragic earthquake in her home community, she has pledged to donate a good portion of the proceeds to the victims of the tragedy. I’m taking my mom and wife for my birthday dinner! Join me won’t you?

Becoming Italian: How to Butcher a Beautiful Language, Fall in Love… and Stay Young
One of Uptown’s favorite regulars, Robert Powers, wrote a book! He bought a place in the Tuscan town of Lucca, Italy and spends a few months each year there.
To get an idea of Robert’s creative genius, visit his blog/website www.welovelucca.com. The book is intended to inspire anyone who has ever fantasized about the expat lifestyle to take the plunge – or at least gets the most out of their travels to Italy.
Wine Club Culture & Things to Know
We sold out this Saturday’s Catena Zapata Wine Dinner in 30 hours after giving our wine club 48 hours advance invitation. I never got to extend an invitation to my non-wine-club list.

Ending 5-course wine inventory below wholesale. As most of you know, we ended our 5-course dinner program. I had been stocking up on wines to pair with Scott’s incredible meals and I’m sitting on about 10 cases of the most food-friendly wine I scoured the globe to find. I am packing up and selling the wine in mixed cases at $120/case, $2-4 (or more) per bottle below wholesale. If you would like to purchase a case, just reply to this email and we’ll put your name on one. We need you to pick it up before the weekend.
