Celebrating Mezcal at Mixteca Portland, Oregon Tuesday Evening July 13, 2021 6 PM – 9 PM

Celebrating Mezcal at Mixteca Portland, Oregon Tuesday Evening July 13, 2021 6 PM – 9 PM

Celebrating Mezcal at Mixteca Portland, Oregon Tuesday Evening July 13, 2021 6 PM – 9 PM

I recently ran into my friend Gaudencio Felipe and he asked me if I would help him promote a fun monthly event he was going to be starting up at Mixteca – the awesome restaurant his family runs.

Gaudencio went on to tell me about the monthly “Celebrating Mezcal” event he is going to have the 2nd Tuesday of every month at Mixteca. During this event they will feature a specific Mezcal and offer both a taster shot of that mezcal, as well as a special cocktail made that month’s mezcal.

I told Gaudencio that I would be happy to donate my time to help him get the word out and that I would be delighted to host their first “Celebrating Mezcal” event.

I invite you to join me Tuesday July 13, 2021, from 6 PM to 9 PM at Mixteca – we are going to have lots of fun!

Celebrating Mezcal at Mixteca Portland, Oregon

Los Nahuales Reposado

The mezcal being featured Tuesday evening July 13 is Los Nahuales Reposado. This mezcal has light caramel undertones with a subtle mesquite smokiness and a sustained finish coming from the oak barrels (66% French Oak, 33% American White Oak) this mezcal is aged in. Los Nahuales Reposado is vivid, complex, and very well structured.

The Smoke is my Spirit Animal Margarita

Once you finish savoring your taster of Los Nahuales Reposado I encourage you to order the special cocktail that Gaudencio has come up with. I have had this cocktail and it is stellar!

Squash Blossom Quesadilla

Not to be out done, Mixteca Chef Paula Asunción has come up with a wonderful special that will be served Tuesday evening – the Squash Blossom Quesadilla.

This quesadilla is made with an organic corn masa tortilla, quesillo AKA Oaxaca cheese, and a squash blossom.

This is a really good quesadilla!

Celebrating Mezcal at Mixteca Portland, Oregon Quesillo AKA Oaxaca Cheese

*Quesillo is a white, semi hard cheese that was first made in the Southern Mexico state of Oaxaca. Quesillo is made with a complicated production process known as pasta filata. Another cheese made with this method is mozzarella.

The pasta filata process for making cheese is originally from Italy and it was brought to Mexico by Dominican friars who settled in Oaxaca. Water buffalo milk was unavailable, so they used cow’s milk and thus quesillo AKA Oaxaca cheese was born!

I hope to see you Tuesday evening!

Cheers,

Steven

Commemorating Six Years of Self-employment

 

Commemorating Six Years of Self-employmentCommemorating Six Years of Self-employment

Today is Jan 6,2021  and I had planned to celebrate however, given the despicable & treasonous attack on our republic and capitol, today is too sobering a day for a celebration.

That being said – today is a special day for me and I want to acknowledge the reason why.

In the summer of 2011, I decided to build a whole new career out of thin air.

I had some opinions about branding, marketing, social media, and achievement. I was convinced that if applied those ideas to my own journey that I could become self-employed.

I started my journey developing what I call my “Big Time Side Hustle” on January 1, 2012 and three years & six days later on January 6, 2015 that spark of dream had grown into a bonfire and I ditched my day job, and I became self-employed!

It has not always been easy, and along the way there has been some really tough times, that being said – I have no regrets and I absolutely LOVE being self-employed!

So many things thrill me about being self-employed. Here are a few things that come to mind — not having to go to mindless Account Executive meeting Monday mornings at 8 AM, not having to work on Monday mornings unless I want to, not having to check with anyone about when I will schedule my vacations, not having to stay at my desk until 5 PM the day before Thanksgiving (such colossal a waste of time), not having to work Christmas Eve Day, and NO Corporate Bullshit.

If you have a *dream to pursue a Big Time Side Hustle and build a brand or a business so you can someday Ditch Your Day Job, I encourage you to go for it! If I can do it – you can do it!!!

Lastly – many, many thanks to Kevin Brusett, Ken Wilson, Zayne Shomler, and Arthur Breur. During those first three years — Jan 1, 2012 to Jan 6, 2015 each of you, in different ways stood in the gap for me and helped reach my goal of becoming self-employed!

#SparkToBonfire      #GoLiveTheLifeYouImagine

* “When you’re alone you ask yourself
What are you searching for
Deep in the night a dream is born
One that you can’t ignore
If you think you can find the passion
And you’re ready to take a chance
If you really believe you can make it
Then the power is in your own hands”

The Irrepressible Joy of Paul Feig – We Will Beat COVID-19

The Irrepressible Joy of Paul Feig – Surviving COVID-19 by Steven Shomler

The Irrepressible Joy of Paul Feig – We Will Beat COVID-19 

In the past few weeks I have released 3 videos related to this terrible pandemic that we are going through – 7 Tips For Getting Through Your First Pandemic, We Will Get Through This, and Enjoying Your Life During a Pandemic.

It was in that third video – Enjoying Your Life During a Pandemic at the 16:23 mark that I talked about Paul Feig, and the incredibly encouraging daily resource he and his lovely wife Laurie Aka Tipsy Faunt provides.

The Irrepressible Joy of Paul Feig – Surviving COVID-19 by Steven Shomler

Hope and Encouragement
Each Evening at 5 PM

Each evening at 5 PM Pacific Time Paul does a nightly live video on his Instagram channel to encourage all of us as we find our way through this dark time. As of the date of the  publishing of this article Paul has released 54 episodes!

It was 5 PM on Thursday evening April 2nd that my sweetheart introduced me to Paul as he shared Quarantine Cocktail Time Episode #16 – Celebration!

 

As I watched & listened to this crazy man dancing around while wearing a purple tuxedo I was moved to tears – good tears.

The hope and encouragement that Paul was sharing that evening (and every evening) was exactly what I needed to hear!

Here is a link so you can see what I saw that evening – https://www.instagram.com/tv/B-f7Qi7DRkA/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

If you are looking for something joyful and positive I highly recommend that you spend some time with Paul – it will do your heart good.

More importantly – If you are struggling and find yourself in need of some encouragement I am betting that some time with Paul be helpful.

Links where you can watch Paul are below.

Paul – Thank you sooooo much for all that you and you and your lovely wife Laurie are doing.

Please know that you are making a difference, and we are so grateful for the time and effort you are investing. 💪

I look forward to someday interviewing you on the Culinary Treasure Podcast, and  filming an episode of the Culinary Treasure Show with you.

Ecclesiastes 9:7-10 The Message 

“Seize life! Eat bread with gusto, Drink wine with a robust heart. Oh yes—God takes pleasure in your pleasure! Dress festively every morning. Don’t skimp on colors and scarves. Relish life with the spouse you love Each and every day of your precarious life. Each day is God’s gift. It’s all you get in exchange For the hard work of staying alive. Make the most of each one! Whatever turns up, grab it and do it. And heartily! This is your last and only chance at it, For there’s neither work to do nor thoughts to think In the company of the dead, where you’re most certainly headed.”
