Well, I heard back from the Bluesfest last week. And got REJECTED! Well, it is their loss. They have no idea about the delicious burritos that their patrons will be missing. I have to admit that I'm a bit confused and was surprised by some of the back and forth emails.....they didn't think that the Blackberry/iPhone burrito ordering idea I had was the right fit for their event. I was very surprised to have gotten that email -- people don't want to stand in line for food at the Bluesfest, they want to listen to music! This could have let people have the opportunity to spend less time in line. Oh well.
One really good thing about the whole process is that they asked for reviews of our food. I was able to go to some friends and friends of friends to get some reviews. And they were all stellar!!! When we finally update the Paso Doble web site, we'll post them up there. If money wasn't a problem, I really would like to open up some burrito restaurants. I still don't feel that Canada has a good burrito restaurant. Paso Doble would be unique here.

Well, it is the beginning of March, and even though there is still snow on the ground, it is time to think forward to the summer and the Ottawa festival season. We want to make Paso Doble Burritos a tradition in the festival circuit!! If we ever do want to open up a series of burrito restaurants, we need to get the word out. That way when we open up, we'll have a set of ready-made customers eager to eat our burritos.
Last year we did the Ottawa Tulip Festival. This year, we're thinking about doing the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest. It would provide us with great exposure!!! We believe it will provide us with a better customer base that is more representative of the target Paso Doble customer -- younger and hipper.
In college, I had this idea for a lifestyle guide. I always thought it would end up being about relationships or success. In many ways, that's where my ambitions and dreams were at that time.
Long since, I've considered the same idea but to a broader audience - people who I think are similar minded in their approach to life. Maybe they have the same passions as me, or maybe they run into the same hurdles as reoccurring themes in their lives?
This book, which I'm crafting on this blog site, is the working rendition of these ideas. Feedback welcome.
paso doble burritos will be featured in the Ottawa Tulip Festival as a food vendor. Located in Commissioners Park, we'll be selling burritos (pork, chicken and veggie) plus tortilla chips and salsa!
Less than a week from now, our delicious burritos will be had by thousands of lucky, hungry Tulip festival goers!
paso doble burritos will be featured at the Canadian Tulip Festival May 2-19! The festival averages thousands of people daily, and on average 20,000 on weekends!
Mark and I are busy with the final details to prepare for opening day this Friday, May 2. He'll have a kitchen staff to manage in an official tent near the main food pavilion at Dow's Lake.
