Today is Halloween. Today can take me back down memory lane to times when I tried to be a mummy by rolling toilet paper around me. That was a fail, but I had fun that day even though I looked more like a prank than an actual Egyptian relic. There are of course lots of WHAT HAPPENS IN HALLOWEEN HAPPENED LAST YEAR so I don't remember anymore by natural or unnatural selection. One thing I remember though is that I don't have any food memories related to Halloween. Do you know what I think is spooky, though? Netflix's documentary about gene-bio technology and how anyone with a basic understanding of the English language who can follow directions, and handle some basic lab equipment can experiment in their basement with genes. Imagine if the gene technology was used to create designer babies with superhero strength and power physical abilities.
So last night was the 7th game of the World Series and Ghaidan and I were wondering about such a quieter than usual night until I looked upon the web for the Nationals and Astros game, it all made sense when I read on the google search results the Astros were up by 1 on the 4th inning of the last game of the series. Ghaydan asked me why is the name of this tournament World Series when only USA teams are part of the league with one exception, the Toronto Blue Jays. I told him I didn't know why but it was an interesting approach, and that I didn't want to talk about it because every time there is a sports final, or political debate it seems directly correlated to our business activity.
Today I wonder if zombies will be coming into Cueva Bar Café asking for brain tostadas, or brain ceviche, who's going to walk in wearing a costume? We usually don't see werewolves, Dracula, witches, heroes cosplayers or families walking by because of the biggest Candy giving activity and big displays of today's holiday with some very creative works over on Maryland Street in University Heights here in San Diego, California. So just like I do every year, I'll be at Cueva Bar slinging tapas, craft beer, wine or sangria and maybe I'll be wearing something funny, or scary, but definitely not a mummy costume.
If you are reading this today I invite you to come on by and say hi, maybe let's take a Halloween 2019 picture. Instead of handing out THC laced candy, I'll buy you a small plate, tap, pintxo, antojito, botana, o como vosotros quieras llamarle. You can choose to believe our tapas are magical and medical in the sense that we believe in passing good energy through the food we prepare to those who eat our small plates like a cookie monsta, tapas, tacos, or empanadas where the magical potion is good vibes, and truckloads of love and appreciation for the opportunity to do what we love. After the fact, I'll gather the pictures and come back here to add a mural.
On a different note. Have you had a chance to check my REVIEWS wall? The other night, this idea came tome and I decided to bring it to life in this page:
Check it out when you get a chance. What are your thoughts on it?
Lastly, thank you, CAMPAIGN MONITOR, for putting lots of work to gather the best headline swipes for Halloween time. It helped me focus my mental power to come up with this post's headline. Also, big thanks to my friend and mentor Alex Theis for asking in a master mind's conference call if we had read about headline swipe files before. Obviously I hadn't and I don't remember having learned this in one of my marketing classes back in 1999.
About the author:
I chef Oz write these blogs. I am a home cook gone pro when my wife Jo and I decided to open Cueva Bar Café in San Diego California. I am passionate about offering a space where people gather for a good time, and to enjoy mindfully prepared tapas, made with love and passion by our culinary team. I'm all about inclusive peace, love, mutual respect, unity, kindness, and compassion under the sun with liberty and justice for everyone.
Let tapas bring us together!
Cueva Bar Café is my approach to the concept of Tapas with an essence of Mexican cuisine, known for continuous reinvention and embracing evolution, where food is prepared in a cosy, relaxed and inclusive atmosphere.
Letting the inspiration flow and keeping balance in mind, I marry Mexico’s ingredients and flavours with elements from around the U.S and the world using local - organic produce and vendors as much as possible to produce both delicious and healthy dishes that have little to zero impact on our environment.
Cueva Bar in San Diego California offers a fusion tapas inspired menu with plenty of omnivores, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.
Every day happy hour is from Tuesday to Saturday from 4 pm to 6 pm.
Happy hour offerings are $2 off all food on the menu and $3 off all drinks by the glass.
Late-night Spanish style happy hour on Friday and Saturday from 9pm to 11pm where we treat you to a tapa or pintxo every time you order a drink.
