I’m getting pretty good at winning food related… stuff. I’ve never been one of those people one considers lucky. Until recently, I only ever remember winning one prize. I must have been about eight years old. I won a raffle at an arts and crafts fair or something like that. Because of my name, they thought I was a man and somehow decided I was an old man and would enjoy a hideous, giant, clay vase. My mom found it a nice home and thus ended my winning streak.
Over the past few months, since this whole food blog adventure started, I’ve gotten pretty good at winning food related prizes. To date, I’ve won a Barrio gift card, an appetizer from Matt’s in the Market, a Kindle copy of Tom Douglas’s new book and most recently, a Moules Monday dinner from Bastille Café & Bar. This past Monday was Moules dinner!
I won’t spend too much time telling you all about Bastille since I’ve already written about them before, but I will say I had every bit as great a time Monday night as on my first visit and our second visit certainly won’t be our last. I’m not just saying that because they gave me free mussels. The food is great, their servers are friendly and knowledgeable and the space is warm and inviting.
