Fall Menu Coming!

OK…confession.  My husband (aka The Polar Bear … because, when given a choice, he’ll sleep 22 hours each day … and, as we learned in science back in the day, that’s called “hibernation”) has been diligently watering our new trees here on the property every day.  Now that it’s a little cooler, The Polar Bear only has to water every three days.  Bonus (although the weather here is sure to change).

We’ve been hard at work on our fall menu and will be rolling it out in the next couple of weeks.  And if you haven’t come by in a while, our new Savory Bone-in Pork Chop over Mashers is seriously killer.  The meat is all-natural pork … so come in and taste this melt-in-your-mouth goodness.

Mark your calendars!  Many of you have asked us, so here it is!

Karaoke – Saturday, September 22.  Our faithful KJ (all you with-it peeps already knew that means “Karaoke Jockey”, but it took me awhile to break the code) Josh will be spinning songs (yeah, I’m seriously old) for us, and we’ll heat up the microphones from 8 p.m. to Midnight.  We’ll be serving a full menu until the kitchen closes at 10 p.m.  Wine, beer, & mixed drink features, and no cover charge.  What a fun way to spend a September evening! 

We’re brainstorming about a Wine & Food Pairing Dinner in October – details to follow.

Heads up for July 4th week … and Karaoke!

We will be closed on Tuesday & Wednesday, July 3rd and 4th.  My adorable grandkids are coming to sleep over (and I use the term “sleep” very loosely), and we’ve cleared our calendars to hang out with them. 

We will offer our usual Tuesday drink specials (both wine & martinis) on Thursday so you won’t miss out – so watch the fireworks and then come in hungry & thirsty!   Our summer menu is still in place with weekly treats – this week we have Honeydew Melon Sorbet, which nearly makes me forget about the blinding heat outside.

We have another night of Karaoke scheduled:  Saturday, July 14th.  Our terrific DJ, Josh, will start signing up you crooners at 7:30 or so, and then we’ll stay open until midnight.  This time around we’ll be offering a more extended menu for dinner & party foods.  We expect to hear lots of warbling and promise to keep you sated (maybe not with the singing, but certainly with the yummy foods & bevvies). 

Call or email us to sign up – 817-281-9500 or queenbee@bizzisbistro.com.

More news to come – next time, I’ll introduce you to our new look and our new employees!

Opus 1 – We’ve got it!

We love tasting our wines, and today we stocked one of our favorites – Opus 1 Cabernet Sauvignon 2005.  OMG – fabulous.  We are continuing to upgrade our wines – I guess it’s a rhetorical question as to whether or not one can actually get sick of tasting new vino (my non-rhetorical answer:  Heck, NO!)…but we’ve added some delicious new quaffs especially geared for our blistering hot Texas summers – wine, martinis, and beer. 

Our menu has moved into summer fare also (Obviously I’ve had to try on bathing suits – awesome.  Has to be the worst thing any women of a certain age and size can do.  I’m having a hot flash just thinking about it.).  We have cooler dishes to keep you refreshed.  Chicken Salad, Gazpacho, Key Lime Pie … to name a few.  Plus we have new Sides – Sautéed Spinach, Mushrooms, Veggies, and Steak Fries (that may be one of the sources of my bathing suit issues – but I’m not giving them up).

Coming up:  We’ll be singing Karaoke (well, not me, but I can hum along to the folks that can carry a tune in a bucket) on Saturday, July 14th until midnight.  Sign up!!

Fine Wine with Caroline!  Saturday, April 21st, 3-5 p.m., $30 per person.  We’ll have our own Caroline Graeub, recently here from Napa.  We’ll do a blind tasting of delicious Pinot Noirs from regions in California.  Caroline will give you tasting notes, lots of background, and tell you stories about her time as an assistant winemaker.  We’ll also be serving light snacks…and then,   the student that guesses correctly all wine regions get a free bottle of Pinot!   Sign up by emailing us at queenbee@bizzisbistro.com or call us at 817-281-9500.   

Kentucky Derby Party & Cinco de Mayo Karaoke!  We’ll start the day, Saturday, May 5th, with a lady’s hat contest (think Pretty Woman!), great finger foods like Mini Hot Browns, Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Tarts, and Mint Juleps.  Then we’ll watch the Derby.  After that, we’ll set up our terrific Karaoke Host Josh Lee with his 100,000+ songs and sing & dance our little hearts out until midnight.  More details to follow.

Come see us!
