First let me say that I missed you. These forays behind the curtain have proven to be as therapeutic to me as they have been amusing to you. The curious cast of characters in the Waffle Cave are all still intact (Chef, Sarge aka Monk aka Number 1, Benjamin Button, the Government Twins, Logistics Prime, the Educator, Mover and Shaker, Sunshine, Florence, et al) doing them, which by the way has not failed to yield an endless supply of comedic quirkiness or Seinfeldian moments. Without this venue I have been reduced to sitting in the corner rocking back and forth, muttering and drooling. The flood of uniqueness is too much for any mortal to bear.
So how have I emerged? Apparently, Chef emerged from the lab with new creations (Short Rib Meat Loaf, Fried Chicken Roulade Stuffed with Spinach and Fontina Cheese, Brownie Cookies with Peanut Butter Creme Filling, Red Velvet Cookies with Cream Cheese Filling, Eggplant Parmesan Sliders, Grilled Rib eye Steak with Blue Cheese Onion Cream Sauce, Cajun Chicken Caesar Salad, and Savory Crack Rolls) and limited venues to provide them. Well as the resident taste tester -- and no we are not looking to expand this position. We have it covered very well in house thank you very much -- it is my unenviable position to a) sample all of the wares and b) collaborate on the flavor profiles. After the tasting (and the requisite nap) I arose to look at our marketing. With all this crazy good stuff flying out of the kitchen, we needed a platform to market this properly. Translation? I had to spend the past two and a half months working on our marketing materials to, protect our brand. Can't serve gourmet food on Styrofoam picnic plates now can we?
So with the help of Uncle Ruckus...no relation (our IT Consultant), we recreated and re-launched the website, created new trifold brochures, and half sheets. Our good friend Mover and Shaker helped us get into the Fil-Am celebration Pistahan Festival in August. We signed up to return to our own personal crime alley (not a literal locale, purely metaphorical reference) also in August. We will be participating in the SF Mayor's reception (also in August). Chef will be creating some new Pinx twisted Filipino meal options. I can't tell you what they are because the walls have ears and I signed a non-disclosure agreement. Sorry Monk, this only applies to the menu. The Waffle Cave is not Las Vegas.
Stay tuned we have lots to tell you about...both from the past two months and all the good stuff that is coming our way.
Life is short...eat something memorable.
