It’s been a while since we’ve updated the blog and since there is a lot going on we thought it would be a good time to fill you in on what’s happening!
First off, a big congratulations to our good friends Glen and Brianne, who are celebrating their wedding day today. We are honored to have been asked to grill the best fish in the world (Copper River King Salmon) for the dinner party. That’s gonna be fun; and we look forward to seeing much of the Cordova community out there at 6 mile having a blast.
Second, we are sponsoring the headlining band at this year’s Salmon Jam Festival July 26-29, and will be providing hot, fresh, wood fired pizza to the masses up at the ski hill, where fun activities, live music, and celebration of salmon will be happening. It’s great to bring a festival like this to life here in our little part of the world, and we are glad to be a part of it. There will be some food writers in town, maybe we can lure them into the shop with the scents of fresh sauce and garlic knots just out of the oven….
Cordova Clean Up Day is June 23 (pretty sure), and we hope to see you out and about with your trash bags cleaning up after such a crazy winter. We enjoy the pristine beauty of Cordova alot, and ask that you make sure the litter gets into the right place. Harborside uses compostable utensils, recycled paper products, and would love to never see them on the side of the road, out the road, or at the end of the harbor. We appreciate your business, and cooperation with keeping Cordova clean. Thanks!!
As always, we’re working hard to bring you the hottest and the freshest pizza in town, chopping firewood, and making deliveries. There are many challenges to being a Mom and Pop operation, but we do the best we can, and really appreciate the good reviews, customer comments and feedback, and the opportunity to make it better if there’s something wrong. We are pleased to have a great new staff member, Stephanie Sison, who will be attending UAA in August and is doing a fabulous job learning the ropes. Professional Food Service requires a lot of multitasking, planning, communication, organization, timing, and don’t forget the fun.
A quick reminder to those who still have a National Ocean Science Bowl Fundraising Coupon, which helps Harborside Pizza support Science, and gets our youth active in the competition….the coupons expire on July 1, 2012. We have had a great response to the fundraiser and appreciate the folks who purchased a coupon to help our Cordova super students out! While on the topic of students, it was our pleasure to chapperone this year’s Safe and Sober Celebration, which is an all night long event designed to provide a fun, nurturing, safe, and fun environment for all the seniors to enjoy, instead of being tempted to engage in dangerous pastimes…it was a blast, we played basketball, dodgeball, went for a 2am swim at the local pool, had door prize drawings, played some video games, and conducted a silent auction, then ate a fabulous breakfast at St. Joe’s. There were some awesome prize packages given out, which included a $250 cash card. Pretty Sweet incentive to attend Safe and Sober! Harborside is glad to help, and congrats to the graduating class…
Fishing season is well under way, and it’s been good so far! We even got to go out on a subsitence opener with our buddy Rotten Ron. Don’t let the name fool you, he’s a real nice guy… Freezer is full thanks to him! Good luck to the commerical fleet for the rest of the season, and we’ll have the oven hot when you get back from the other side.
That just about wraps up the news for now… “love people, cook them tasty food.” Harborside Pizza Out.
