Pasear por estas tierras y degustar sus platos en cualquier sitio de Santiago ya es excepcional,pero aprovechó para comentar tres lugares que me encantaron.
El primero,Restaurante O Desvío, regentado por Rafael, dueño de este local que diariamente compra los productos que ofrece la carta en el mercado de abastos de Santiago,productos de calidad y frescos,sobre todo los procedentes del mar, pescado,mariscos. Raciones y calidad impresionantes.
Otro restaurante que también quiero destacar, es restaurante Gonzaba, el nuevo aunque el antiguo tiene su encanto.
En este restaurante puedes comerte el mejor chuletón a la brasa de todo Santiago,acompañado de champiñones con un toque de picante y tartar de atún.
Restaurante Carretas, marisqueria y gastronomía casera en un sitio clásico y al lado de la Catedral de Santiago. Marisco y pescado fresco a buena calidad.
Y por último, el Pazo Vista Alegre, calidad,esmero,buen gusto y bien servicio. El menú exquisito y el sitio espectacular…
Antonio no para de sorprendernos.En este caso con unas alcachofas de la tierra,bien tiernas acompañadas de foie y bacon a la barbacoa,unas brochetas de atún,pez mantequilla y gambas y una carne de ternera pajuna….Una maravilla…
Distributed teams, different geographies, and complex dynamics are redefining the modern workday. Soon, “job perks” like flexible hours and work-from-anywhere will become table-stakes benefits that every company needs to offer to stay competitive.
WordPress.com’s parent company Automattic has long been ahead of this curve, growing a global software company of more than 850 people across 68 countries with no central office. Along the way, we’ve found that many business products are still locked into old assumptions about how a company runs, so we had to build our own internal tools to work the way we want. Now, we’re making these tools available to like-minded companies who need a better way to work.
Today Automattic is announcing Happy Tools, a suite of products for the future of work. Each product in Happy Tools has been used internally at Automattic to grow our company.
The suite is launching with Happy Schedule, a new take on workforce management. Designed to handle the complexities that come up when business goals are planned around real-world schedules, it helps you treat your employees like humans instead of resources. Using Happy Schedule, Automattic is able to plan 24/7 customer support while offering flexible working hours to our 300+ Happiness Engineers spanning many timezones.
Happy Schedule is just the start. Over the coming years Automattic will release more of its internal applications into Happy Tools, with smart integrations between the products that make them even better when used together.
We hope that by offering Happy Tools, even more forward-thinking companies will be able to move to a new way of working with customer support, internal communication, and people-management.
You can get a 30-day free trial of Happy Tools when you sign up for a Happy Schedule demo at https://happy.tools.
Haciendo un breve resumen de lo que encontramos en este lugar,podríamos decir que es un lugar donde pruebas platos y cócteles de inspiración asiatico-europea en un espacio original y muy llamativo, pero os puedo asegurar que es mucho más que eso, es una experiencia gastronómica 100% recomendable, sabores e ingredientes potentes que explotan en el paladar,y aunque pensemos que nos podemos quedar con hambre,en absoluto,son platos que sacian a la vez.
Es un concepto que va más allá del verbo comer, cocina abierta,muy dinámica,la música excepcional,el ambiente extraordinario, no es nada convencional, te sientas al lado de otras personas que comparten y degustan platos excepcionales… la atención y el trato sublimes, como la degustación de los platos.
Por poner una pequeña crítica, las bebidas y la carta de vinos prohibitiva…
Es una experiencia desde que entras por la puerta y adoptar en concepto de comida callejera del sureste asiático…..
Esra situado en el Hotel Como,cerca de Hyde Park, permitiéndoles disfrutar de la excelencia culinaria de Arzak, evidenciando una gran propuesta gastronomica.
El menú degustación y el maridaje de vinos estuvo excepcional, con grandes puntos de innovación. Los precios son elevados,pero acordes con la calidad de la comida. Si bien,no todo fue perfecto, el nivel fue tan alto que los postres crearon una gran expectativa y nos decepcionó.
Por lo demás,la presentación de los platos, la combinación de sabores y los tiempos de cocción perfectos. Es algo mágico lo que se produce en la boca al sentir la combinación de sabores,texturas, y temperaturas.
Visita obligada a todo buen comedor y amantes de los sabores…
Electric Literature launched 10 years ago in Brooklyn, New York, as a quarterly print journal with a mission to make literature more relevant, exciting, and inclusive. And today they’re celebrating the launch of a new website on WordPress, at electricliterature.com.
Surviving (and thriving) for ten years as an independent publisher is no small feat. Over the years the nonprofit organization has grown its online audience — with offerings like Recommended Reading and The Commuter — while expanding its membership of readers who help fund its work. The website is free to everyone and relies on the generosity of its community to donate to the site and support its mission.
How does an indie website make its business work in 2019? We talked with Electric Lit’s Executive Director Halimah Marcus about some of the lessons they’ve learned in the past 10 years.
Slow and Steady Growth Can Be a Very Good Thing
Sometimes raising a lot of money from investors means you’ll grow fast — but also burn out sooner. “Slow and steady growth has been important to our longevity thus far. Ten years for some companies isn’t that long, but ten years for an indie online magazine is quite long. We’ve seen many of our peers close during that time and also many publications that were much better funded and larger than us as well.”
Focus On Your Mission
Marcus and company made a deliberate decision early to become a nonprofit with a mission to support writers. “That was an interesting discussion. For the most part I think it was the right decision, although there are many different ways to look at this question. We were definitely a mission-driven organization. With Recommended Reading we partner with other magazines and indie presses and publications to promote their work and to give an online platform to many stories that have never been published online and never would be published online.
“It was our goal to build a literary ecosystem, to showcase how diverse it was and to give access to it. There was nothing about what we were doing that was about making money [laughs]. Becoming a nonprofit to be mission-driven, to be able to have access to grant opportunities, to be able to solicit donations and make those tax-deductible was going to be important for our financial model.” As a nonprofit, Electric Literature receives funding from foundations including the Amazon Literary Partnership, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts — an important source of funding for a publisher when revenue from online advertising can fluctuate dramatically from month to month.
Memberships (and Your Members) Matter
Direct funding from readers makes a big difference for the business. Electric Literature does not paywall its essays or fiction — the site is totally free and readers have an option to donate or subscribe with a recurring monthly payment.
Its membership program hit some bumps when it briefly moved it to Medium — the platform switched its membership model in 2018 and Electric Literature was one of several publishers who were left scrambling. Marcus’s advice? Think carefully about who you let between you and your readers — it’s very hard to regain subscribers after you’ve lost them.
Most important of all is making sure those who do donate to your publication feel special. “I think the lesson that I’m always learning and figuring out how to do better is to make those people who have shown you that they care about your publication and that they’re invested in it feel included and appreciated. Make sure they know who they can talk to if they have a question or if they just want to make a comment or they have a problem. That’s something that is so important.”
Make Your Home on the Web Your Own
“You’ll see that on the new website the look is very vibrant and positive and is pulled through every article and every space. Icons inspired by electrical symbols such as signals and inverters are a part of the design we were able to bring through. It’s important to be able to have control over what our product looks like. Our editorial vision is now able to extend to the way the work presented and what it looks like.”

Ofrece una propuesta gastronómica muy mediterránea. Una atención exquisita, el entorno muy tranquilo y la jornada gastronómica está excepcional. El menú y el vino perfecto… la paella,de las mejores que hemos degustado.
Keeping your visitors interested is the key to a successful website—and one great way to do that is with email. A smart email outreach plan piques peoples’ interest, keeps them engaged, and brings them back to your website.
To send emails, you need a mailing list, and Mailchimp is the list-building tool of choice for lots of folks. With WordPress.com’s new Mailchimp block, you can add a signup form to any post or page. Give visitors the opportunity to join your list wherever they are on your website.
Using the Mailchimp block
If your website is on WordPress.com or uses Jetpack (version 7.1 or higher), the Mailchimp block is already waiting for you in the block editor. Open a post or page, add a new block, and either search for “Mailchimp” or select it from the list of available blocks.
Once you’ve inserted the block into your content, you can customize the following aspects of your form:
Placeholder text in the field for email address. Once your visitor starts filling out the form, this placeholder text will disappear.
Text on the submit button.
Terms of service disclaimer at the bottom. These terms and conditions are the contract between you and the subscriber.
Success message text that will appear after visitors submit their email.
Error message text if there was a problem in submitting the form.
The first time you add a Mailchimp block, you’ll need to to connect your Mailchimp account to your WordPress website and specify the mailing list that your new subscribers will join.
Email helps you build a relationship with your readers. Not sure what to send? Try:
Sending updates about new posts or products.
Sharing other interesting articles from around the web.
Writing more personal updates.
Expanding on your blog posts.
Offering discounts or early access to premium content.
Forging an email relationship can turn a one-time visitor into a loyal follower or customer. And the people who trust you with their email addresses are often your biggest fans, so it makes sense to give them some extra goodies.
Build better landing pages
Email signups are also perfect for landing pages or “Coming Soon” splash pages. A landing page is a simple one-page website that serves only one purpose: to collect email addresses. Usually, it’s a placeholder for a fuller site to come, or a new product or service that will launch in the future. With a Mailchimp block, you can collect emails right on your landing page:
Collect the email addresses of interested visitors while you build your product or a larger site behind the scenes. Once your creation is ready to be unveiled, you can email your list to let them know.
