Antique Week has begun at Bistro 108

Antique Week has begun at Bistro 108.

The weather looks like it is going to be perfect -- warm days, cool nites. Our hours are:

Thurs - Saturday (September 25-27) Lunch 11-2 pm & Dinner 5-9 pm.

Sunday Brunch 10 am - 2pm (September 28)

Monday (September 29) Dinner 5-9 pm

Tuesday - Saturday (September 30 - October 4) Lunch 11 am - 2 pm & Dinner 5-9 pm.

Remember to come to lunch. The Antique folks are busy shopping and we do not see them until Dinner time.

If you call for dinner reservations during Antique Week, I do not guarantee you a table the moment you walk in the door. But the wait, even when we are the busiest, usually isn't more than 15 minutes for those who have called in. We will have the Patio open for dining during the whole week.

Hope to see you this week.

What do you think of a Tequila Tasting Dinner?

Michael and Miriam Farenthold are the owners of Central Texas Spirits, Inc. and have asked us to partner with them to present a Tequila Tasting Diner. I think it would be a lot of fun to learn how to use some of their quality Tequilas for drinking, cooking and baking. We have not finalized a date for the event. We would like you to send us an email ( if you are interested in attending. It will probably be sometime after the January 1, 2009.

Bistro 108 Cooking Classes

The cooking class at the Olle Hotel was great fun and the food was delicious. Our next class will be at Le Petite Gourmet Shoppe on November 10. Contact Donnella at 979-968-4000 for reservations and details.

Remember Bistro 108 Caters, too.
