    September 17, 2013 Omaha NE. SHOLDIT founder Angela Lee has announced that her company has qualified for a free 30 second commercial in this year's Super Bowl.

    "In a contest sponsored by Intuit Quick books, Sholdit appears to be Omaha's only business that could move to the next round "explained Lee. "All we need are votes! There is nothing to buy, just vote before September 22, 2013. This comes right after the national media coverage we recently received for our solution to the football stadium ban on purses."

    "There is a general agreement that the ban is being implemented to look out for the safety of all those attending games this season. The patent pending Clutch WrapT purse has been found to meet stadium requirements in addition to enhancing comfort and security even further. Worn as a traditional infinity scarf, the Clutch WrapT purse features 1-2 hidden zipper pocket(s) perfectly sized to fit the game-day essentials, including a cell phone, cash, keys, tickets and more," announced Lee. "Not only will the Clutch WrapT solve the handbag-ban dilemma facing women this football season, it will also keep them warm on chilly game days!"

    The SHOLDIT Clutch WrapT purse has been making a splash across the country since its launch less than two years ago. The Today Show, USA Today, The Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun Star, Associated Press and a host of other national, regional, and local news outlets have profiled the unique invention. It has even been touted by Accessories Magazine as "one of the most innovative fashion accessories seen in years [that] every woman in every city across the globe needs!"

    Between adding final touches on a catering menu and making sure tonight's beef tenderloins are seasoned to perfection, Chef Enzo is often lured out of the kitchen to receive personal congratulations lately. The popular chef at Zurlo's Bistro Italiano was recognized by many guests at the recent March of Dimes Omaha Signature Chefs Auction.

    "About twenty local marvelous chefs prepared samples of their signature dishes," explains Lori Stangl, owner of Zurlo's Bistro. "There was a raffle and live auction...and our Bistro was honored to have received one of the highest bids on our dinner certificate -- around $4100, I believe. Chef Enzo's Salmon Crostinis, Meatballs, Chicken Salad Won Tons, and Tomato Bruschetta appetizers were amazing. I'm not sure, but I think some admirers might be trying to see if the Chef will share some of his culinary secrets."

    The night prior to the big auction was busy at the popular local Italian eatery, too. Italian winemaker Nicola Biscardo from Verona, Italy, was on hand to personally highlight a number of fine wines for guests at the Zurlo's September Wine Dinner.

    "Each food course during the wine dinner perfectly matched the Italian wine presented," says Stangl. "Chef Enzo is also scheduled to be a featured Chef at the Chamber Member Appreciation event on December 5th from 4pm-7pm at the Chamber office."

    Even if Chef Enzo doesn't share any cooking secrets at these events, guests can try the aforementioned appetizers at the Bistro. The savory menu bites are a popular option for both wedding and business catering events.

    Other upcoming Zurlo's event highlights include the ongoing Thursday Live Music. Darryl White and Ron Cooley are scheduled to take the Bistro stage on October 24th. Popular Omaha cover band eNVy will finish out the October line up by playing for the Bistro on Halloween night.

    Zurlo's has begun taking reservations for holiday parties. Patrons are invited to make their arrangements as soon as they confirm desired dates for events. Dining reservations are also encouraged for weekend evenings to help staff ensure those dining with the finest possible attentive service.

    Current information about Zurlo's special events is available via the restaurant's website, Twitter, Facebook, OpenTable and exclusive email newsletter updates. Visit for easy access to the Bistro's social media, menu, special video features and a schedule of upcoming music ensembles.
