Also, I will be having a special book signing event at Tapas by Stratta on Friday, June 19 & Friday June 26 from 5-7pm. I invite you to come and join us.


June 15 is the start of Restaurant Week (which actually runs for 12 days thru June 26), in which participating restaurants share a specific dollar amount of donation to Three Square Food Bank, for every special meal that is purchased. Here’s the details:

Now in its ninth year,LAS VEGAS Restaurant Week gives restaurants in our community the opportunity to give back through the culinary arts.


Now in its ninth year, Three Square Food Bank presentsLAS VEGAS Restaurant Week – a celebration of dining out for a cause. Make reservations at award-winning restaurants and local eateries you have always wanted to try, and your meal could provide up to 18 meals to hungry people in the community. A portion of proceeds from Restaurant Week remain local and help Three Square in its fight to end hunger in Southern Nevada.

Since 2007, more than 2.5 million meals have been provided for those in need through Restaurant Week. ByJOINING us, you are helping us get closer to our goal of feeding the more than 315,000 food insecure people in Southern Nevada

Our Participation/Your Participation:

For every dollar donated to Three Square 3 meals are provided to Southern Nevada’s insecure people. For every copy of Getting to WOW! that we sell, we donate $3.00 to Three Square.  That means that the sale of one copy of Getting to WOW! provides for 9 meals!

Our specific goal for this month of June 2015 is to sell 200 copies of Getting to WOW!, thereby donating $600.00 to Three Square-totaling 1800 meals.  

We need your support.  If you live in Las Vegas, I invite you to join us for Restaurant Week.  Come have an amazing dinner at this beautiful new restaurant in Tivoli Village.  Experience the creative, flavorful culinary creations of Chef Alex Stratta, purchase yourself  a copy of Getting to WOW! Everybody WINS with 5 Star Service.  In doing so, everybody truly will win; you will have an great dining experience at an amazing new restaurant, if you order their special restaurant week menu $5.00 will be donated to Three Square, you will be supporting a new local author, and most importantly, you will be contributing in a huge way towards helping to end hunger in Southern Nevada.

If you live outside of Las Vegas, you can still help by purchasing a copy or copies of my book, Getting to WOW! Everybody WINS with 5 Star Service.  Every copy you purchase provides 9 meals for the food insecure.  As Three Square’s motto states-Together, We can feed everyone.

If you already have a copy of Getting to WOW! I ask that you consider ordering another one or two to give as gifts to the people you know in any type of service profession.

I sat down with Chef Stratta last year and he shared his insights on the importance of and what constitutes WOW! Service & Hospitality.  One of the things he shared with me is that WOW! Service is when the guest walks out of your establishment with this amazing feeling but  “they really don’t know what hit them.”  It’s the intangibles that make for an amazing “WOW! dining experience. Chef Stratta has not only contributed content to my book, Getting to WOW!, he also wrote a fantastic endorsement which appears on the back cover.
