Sell Out Sunday – Three To Get Ready

July 22, 2012

In theory I suppose I could be using this platform to tell you all about the evil things going on with food this week. You know, all of things that you should be getting riled up about. That would include the letters I’d like you to write your senators, the online petitions I’d ask you to sign, and the products I’d suggest you reconsider buying.

But I think that would be more annoying than this lighthearted recap of press releases from the week. Except these are no longer just press releases. Some of them are just email blasts that I’ve gotten from food businesses in the region. But all of them have for some reason captured my attention.

Therefore you may be interested in them too. Plus it’s been a late night of packing for PA and I don’t have time to write an entirely original post. The truth always comes out. Well, anyway, today there are three. I hope you learn something new.

The Press Release From Creo
Creo’ Announces New Thursday Raw Bar Night
Creo’ Provides Fresh Seafood – Hand Selected by Chef

COLONIE – White Management announces Creo’s new Thursday raw bar night featuring a variety of fresh seafood from Earth & Sea Fish Market in Manchester Center, Vermont and the Cape Cod Shellfish & Seafood Company in Boston, Massachusetts. The raw bar will be available every Thursday night for guests from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“We wanted to bring something new to Creo’ this summer,” said Brian White, Vice President of White Management. “Having quality shellfish for the raw bar will further enhance the experience for our guests.”

Every Thursday night the raw bar will feature a selection of fresh shellfish, including clams, oysters, shrimp and a variety of other seafood. This is the first time Creo’ has featured a raw bar.

“We will be providing our guests with the highest quality and flavor,” said Brian Bowden, Executive Chef at Creo’. “Each week the shellfish is hand selected for the raw bar and I’m sure our guests will taste the difference.”
