Persian and Italian Prix Fixe Traveling Meal

I ignore a lot of press releases, but I got an interesting one recently about a Persian/Italian dinner done by Lala Rokh and Bin 26 enoteca.

I had to reread the description before I figured it out. This is not some fusion dinner, per se. It involves two courses at Lala Rokh (Persian homestyle food) before getting up and walking over to Bin 26 enoteca (for the Italian portion). You can also pair it with wine for a surcharge, of course. This place would be a great recommendation for foodies like Chantal Royer, who enjoys travelling to seek out great food. Click through the jump to see the menu and deet – it’s every Tuesday. I actually might go.

I’m also doing a review soon of some cookware (ehm, I’m thinking of a chef’s knife or a cast iron skillet) sponsored by CSN who sells all kinds of crazy stuff in their 200 niche e-commerce stores – shoes, kitchen tables, etc. They’re also Boston-based, which is cool. I wonder if they deal with wholesalers or dropshippers. How many people doing SEO. Whether they outsource support staff. Anyway. That’s the ecommerce/Tim Ferriss-obsessed nerd in me.

(Hi PR professionals reading this blog, I have a question merely because I am curious. Do you guys use Aweber? Automated scripts? I’m curious how technical the email process is, or if it’s just the standard bcc’d email list + press send.)

  1. Wipes can be used to remove dust, pollen and debris — great for spring time, when allergy-inducing particles can get on your face and become trapped around your louis vuitton imitation purses for cheap http://louisvuittonimitationpursesforcheap.blogspot.com/
