I will be happy to talk to Jorge (owner and head chef of Taste of Portugal in northwest Houston) about putting together a "sampler" Portugese dinner for us Houston chowhounds. This place represents both a wonderful, intimate neighborhood dining experience, as well as a delicious way to sample the native dishes of Portugal.
I know a lot of us may take vacation time during the summer, so I wanted to try to find a weekend everyone is available. From what I can tell, either Saturday July 26 or Saturday August 2 may work for everyone. If everyone would like to do it earlier in July, I would still be more than happy to organize the event, although I would not be able to attend.
Could I ask everyone who may be interested to post under this thread, weigh in on dates, and give me a tentative head count? Once I have a date and a head count, I'll set things up with Jorge.
If anyone needs any additional information, you can post on the board or email me at: stew(NO SPAM)firstname.lastname@example.org. [Remove the "(NO SPAM)"]
