Last weekend we were invited to stop in and enjoy the festivities at 3015 in Trinity Groves where chef Uno Immanivong and her cocktailing biz partner Adrian Verdin hosted an evening that previewed and highlighted the menu from Chino Chinatown, their Asian-Latin fusion restaurant that should be rolling out in August 2013.

Guests were delighted by the marvelous service, and colorful and flavor-packed dishes prepared by Uno and her pop-up staff.

The flavors meld together so wonderfully.  Continue reading

Yesterday proved that all the months of planning craveRADIO was well worthwhile. The two hour broadcast on 1190 AM went by extremely fast. When we completed our inaugural program there were still many callers left hanging, and one very special guest we were not able to speak with. Overall we deemed the first show success, but that is certainly for the public to determine.
