Say It Ain’t So, Cocina Heritage

Sometimes we get announcements that leave us bummed out, even when they’re written in the nicest way possible.

This notice from Silvia Alcaraz and Lupita Rivero, the two women behind Cocina Heritage, 118 N. Medina St., is one of those.

“I hope this message finds you in good spirits,” they write. “We are elated to share Cocina’s newest projects.  We have closed our doors to the restaurant due to the recently announced work extension of Medina street.”

Cocina Heritage will still be around, however, and they have these projects in the works:
1. We’ will offer a weekly supper take out service. More information to come, please add us to your contacts to avoid the spam folder (eventually we will use Mail chimp).
2. We will continue to offer catering services. Please keep us in mind for catered events and let us take your guest through the culinary tour just as you experienced it at the restaurant.
3. Lastly, We have an exciting project: we will host monthly long table dinners at Dorcol Distilling Company. (The first dinner is Feb. 20. For more information, click here: https://1stmoonchefdinner.ticketbud.com/firstmoondinner
Cocktail Conference Makes a Difference for Four Charities
Summer Raspberry drinkThe 2015 San Antonio Cocktail Conference was served up 168 different cocktail recipes to nearly 7,000 attendees in just four days.
But even more important was the fact that the SACC served up a $115,000 donation to four San Antonio children’s charities from the event’s profits. On Thursday, The Children’s Shelter, ChildSafe, HeartGift San Antonio and Transplants for Children were on hand to receive the money and celebrate the success of SACC 2015 with a light brunch and morning cocktails courtesy of the St. Anthony Hotel, Bohanan’s and Folc.
“We are thrilled to be able to make a significant contribution to our community through these charitable organizations that work so tirelessly to help save the lives of children,” says Cathy Siegel, executive director of Houston Street Charities, the organization behind the SACC. “It’s been at the heart of SACC since the beginning.
“Offering a beautiful Cocktail Conference to thousands of participants is great, but getting to present these charities with a check is the perfect garnish on the cocktail!”
