Sammy Hagar Won’t Be There, But…

Cantina Laredo, the new Mexican restaurant in Clayton, is hosting a Tequila Dinner on Wednesday, September 16, 7:00 p.m. The dinner will feature four Cabo Wabo tequilas paired with a multi-course off-the-menu lineup of dishes created by executive chef Sean Scott. Cost is 49.99 per person.

Cabo tequila

Here’s what’s being served:

  • Chicharron de queso chalupa featuring crisp cheese, avocado with salsa mortajada as the first course.

  • A watermelon salad made featuring jicama, watermelon, strawberries, and lime as the next course.

  • The third course will be the guestschoice of:

    Filet Tampiqueno a 7 oz. filet with crimini mushrooms, as well as roasted garlic potatoes with queso fresco

    Banana leaf wrapped halibut with artichokes, grape tomatoes and cilantro rice

  • A flavorful coconut pecan ice cream with cajeta (sweet) sauce will be the final course

A Cabo Wabo representative will be on hand to talk about the tequilas, but, alas, it will not be Sammy Hagar. Although the Red Rocker is closely associated with the Cabo Wabo brand, he sold off his ownership in the company a few years back.

Also, Hagar will be in New York that day, promoting his “lifestyle cookbook” Are We Having Any Fun Yet? He is scheduled to be on ABC-TV’s The View Wednesday. He is scheduled to sign his book at Left Bank Books in the CWE this Friday, September 18, at 4:00 p.m.

Adam Perry Lang Comes To St. Louis

Adam Perry Lang is promoting his new book Charred and Scruffed with a visit to St. Louis on Friday, June 15. I have been invited to conduct a chat with him at Left Bank Books, 321 N. 10th Street, at 7:00 p.m. Friday evening.

This free event provides a great opportunity for you to see and hear Adam in person and ask him anything you wish about his new grilling techniques and about his spackles, bastes and finishing salts.

His book will be available for purchase and he will sign a copy for you. You may want to buy an extra copy for your father for Father’s Day!

See you Friday night at Left Bank Books!

He’s the author of Charred and Scruffed, a new book that is a barbeque guidebook with new grilling techniques. It’s also a cookbook with recipes for side dishes, spackles, bastes and finishing salts.
