ChuckAlek Independent Brewers Visit Valle de Guadalupe



Located in Ramona California ChuckAlek Independent Brewers is a family run operation with brewer/owner Grant Fraley at the helm.  They posted a picture on Instagram of Vena Cava and its Foodtruck Troika with an interesting hashtag -  #bajabeerproject2015.

I reached out for a little clarification and received the following reponse:

"Hammering out details now, but we're talking with Baja breweries, chefs, wineries and a hop farm to bring a collaborative project over the course of 2015!"

Sounds like a winning combination,

La Esperanza to Open October 16


Chef Miguel Angel Guerrero (La Querencia, El Colegio, El Taller) is a powerhouse in the world of Baja cuisine. It was a very big deal when the news broke early this year that he would be returning to Valle de Guadalupe with a new restaurant on the LA Cetto property.  

Months ago there were mentions on his Instagram feed that the restaurant, La Esperanza, might be open as early as April.  When I checked the calendar this morning and noticed it was now September I started wondering what was happening with La Esperanza, so I reached out to Chef via Twitter and asked. 

His response - October 16.
