Fried Chicken and Champagne: Meet Jerry Lasco of Max's Wine Dive

While in New York, Lasco had started taking classes at Peter Kump’s famed cooking school. “My father was a great cook and many memories of my father involved cooking,” recalls Lasco. “Maybe that encouraged me to get into restaurants, but I have always had a passion for food and cooking.” In 2002, he took a part-time job at Houston Wine Merchant making $6 an hour to gain experience in food and wine.

After taking classes and earning his Level 1 Sommelier certification from the Court of Master Sommeliers, Lasco borrowed money from a bank, and more from friends and family, to open The Tasting Room in a tiny, 900-square-foot space at Uptown Park. His wife's younger sister, Emily, moved to Houston and helped him run the store. For the first two months, they were the only employees. One would open the store and the other would close – seven days a week.

“You had to put up a sign just to be able to go to the bathroom,” laughs Lasco. “Whenever I wanted to leave the front of the bar, I would always tell one of my guests to “watch the register and I’ll make the cheese plate.” The idea of The Tasting Room in 2003 was to help customers understand the colors and flavors of particular wine styles in an nonintimidating environment. People could then buy the ones they enjoyed. It was also the first wine bar in Houston that also sold retail wine.

Do you support Congress's bailout plan, or the House Republicans' bailout plan?

Here's the bullet points directly from the House GOP plan:

* Rather than providing taxpayer funded purchases of frozen mortgage assets, we should adopt a mortgage insurance approach to solve the problem.

I like the Republican's plan a lot better than the Democrat's plan, but what I really want is for the people who got loans they should not have received to go bankrupt and the bankers who issued the loans prosecuted for fraud.
