first_imgFrom November 26 to December 2, the Zagreb County Tourist Board is organizing the Days of Tastes of the Zagreb Region event for the first time in cooperation with ten restaurants, holders of the Tastes of the Zagreb Region standard.In the mentioned period, at a promotional price of 90 kuna, you will be able to enjoy the traditional gastronomic specialties of the Zagreb County. “It is a continuation of the project in which we encourage the development of traditional eno-gastronomic activities through joint activities and contribute to strengthening market positioning and recognition. ”  stand out from the Zagreb County Tourist Board.Facilities included Days of Taste of the Zagreb region: Bistro Babriga (Velika Gorica), Excursion site Vina Kos-Jurišić (Sveti Ivan Zelina), Hotel Bunčić (Vrbovec), Rural tourism Kezele (Ivanić-Grad), Restaurant Samoborska klet (Samobor), Restaurant Golf Zaprešić), Excursion site Suhina (Sveta Nedelja), Restaurant Ivančić (Jastrebarsko), Ekopark Krašograd (Pisarovina) and Rural household Stara preša (Šenkovec).ANNEX: MENU – Days of Taste of the Zagreb regionTastes of Croatian tradition – Tastes of the Zagreb region is a project of the county and local tourist boards and the company DMK Vall042 with the intention of enriching the tourist offer and developing new tourist products. The main goal is to improve the offer of traditional local dishes, drinks and products in the daily offer of catering facilities and on that basis a more meaningful development of eno-gastronomic tourism.The main goal is to mark and build a strong market recognition of restaurants with standards “Tastes” and their identity as a place that guarantees and provides a true experience of local dishes, drinks and local traditional products. The “Tastes” standard is actually the construction of a common identity for the experience of local dishes, drinks and products, with a kind of promise to guests that there is a daily offer of traditional dishes and drinks in the marked facility.The standard can be awarded to a catering facility that usually operates for at least three years and meets the established minimum requirements set by the ordinance: to have at least two local traditional dishes and six beverage labels in the daily offer, of which at least four are wines, and to which is carried out in five categories: Food, Service, Drink, Ambience, Environment) achieves a minimum of 75 out of a possible 100 points.Great story and concept, but unfortunately poor realization.Just organizing a special offer in catering facilities is not enough for the whole project to be self-sustainable and to develop further. Great form, but poor content. This should be just the finale of the whole project, which is accompanied by various other events based on local gastronomy and tradition. Of course accompanied by strong promotion, both local to activate and raise awareness of the local population, and in the city of Zagreb as the primary market.Certainly good foundations and support for the project, but the whole story should be raised to a much higher level and quality of performance.last_img read more

Fans want to watch games, not protests

first_imgI grown increasingly weary and disgusted by all of the tumult and furor being caused the players of the National Football League [NFL] in their attempt to protest all of the injustices in this country by their refusal to stand while the National Anthem is being played. These players are nothing more than overgrown adolescents who can command an extraordinary amount of money in salary by playing a game that little boys can play in the street.Curiously, I have neither seen nor heard of any NFL player stepping up to donate even a single dime of his overinflated salary to combat all of the alleged injustices in this country that are perceived by them. Rather, it’s easier (and decidedly less expensive) to either “take a knee,” to lock arms with your teammates, or to remain in the locker room while the National Anthem is being performed, only to emerge when it’s time “to play.” I’m even further disgusted that the foolish antics of the NFL players are now being imitated by high school players as well.I was a football fan for many years, but enough is too much. In the future, I intend to boycott any and all football games and the players and to refuse to purchase any NFL products ever again until the NFL and its players recover from their selfish behavior. I call others to join my boycott as well.Remember us, we’re the fans that pay an inordinate amount of money to watch a game. We aren’t interested in watching you exhibit your personal or political views. We are here to watch a game.One final sentiment, you stand for the flag and you kneel for the fallen.Michael G.

Listen to city workers on charter change

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Nearly two-thirds of City Hall employees in Saratoga Springs (65.3 percent) believe that “city Hall would operate better with a city manager.” Only one in seven City Hall workers (15 percent) disagrees with that statement. Such overwhelming support for charter change, coming from those who witness the inefficiencies of our current form of government on a daily basis, only confirms my strong support for the charter change proposal on the November ballot. (The data comes from a poll of city employees conducted by the Charter Review Commission.) Finally, over 70 percent in City Hall “strongly disagreed” or “somewhat disagreed” with the statement that “the Commission form of government provides for the effective management of the city.” There is no way this outmoded and flawed form of government is the key to Saratoga’s success, as some would suggest. I encourage all to vote for charter change. Three out of five felt that under the current form of government, “political conflict or tensions” between commissioners affected their “ability to do their job.” Two of five said “political conflicts” had a “great deal of effect” on their job.center_img TOM DENNY Saratoga SpringsMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Schenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homes Who better understands just how dysfunctional the commission form of government really is in Saratoga than those folks in the trenches of City Hall trying to do the public’s work? Other statistics from the same poll shed light on other ways the city hall workers feel that the commission form of government is failing us.last_img read more
