addo update 1/12/18

HOLA!

Back at it!

Thank you all for supporting addo so far. This week has been the biggest week for sales for addo ever, that's amazing and you are to thank for that! 

The chef Achatz dinner sold out to the public in less than 30 seconds.  The amount of interest for the dinner has been incredible and there are more than 500 people on the waitlist, I received more than 150 calls, and lots of emails.  There are no additional tables that will be added and the 2/6 and 2/7 dates are completely sold out.  

The process for selling took three weeks and planning for the dinner has been in the works for months. If you were a newsletter subscriber then you would have had a first crack at tickets along with ticket buyers to a certain cut off date and addo:rewards members.  That doesn't mean there aren't other experiences in the works.... Trust me, this is just the beginning.  

If you're a fan of Chef Achatz, like I am, then you should definitely check out his work in Chicago and NYC.  (Click)

Thank you to Seatle Met (click) and The Seattle Times (click) for your stories about this dinner! 

Lastly, thanks to Tock for being the best system for selling tickets out there.  Being able to handle that selling process by myself is truly special.  Want Tock for your restaurant? Click


New Experiences

Lechonsito - 

This is the name of the restaurant that I will be launching for Puerto Rican food in Seattle.  It's been a process so far to dial things in and get to a point where I can see there is actually a demand for Puerto Rican food here.  Growing up in Olympia there wasn't any options for it and currently there is just one Puerto Rican restaurant in Seattle so I think it's time for another so more people can have rad food. 

I'll be talking about this a lot more as it launches. I don't have an opening date or location yet but I would like to do it on Capitol Hill, if things work out.  It will be accessible, inexpensive, and good tasting food! I'm popping up that concept at addo until I can get a permanent location. I'll be adding more dates for this shortly.   Book now (click)
