I've been getting my hair cut by the same guy since 2003 and Greg Trigg at The Gallery has always cut my hair perfectly.  Every time I show up with no real idea as to what I want it to look like exactly, but he also gets it just right.  And when I leave I always have a renewed self confidence.  Its funny how that's all it takes sometimes.  A fresh haircut.  A new shirt.  Or that pair of shoes you've wanted for a long time.  The tiniest things can make the biggest difference to how you feel about yourself.

Caliente for the longest time was in need of a new "haircut".  We are approaching our 6 year anniversary at Caliente and we havent changed a whole lot about the aesthetics of our location.  And just like having the same ole hair do for 6 years, we were in desperate need of a new do.

At the end of last year we put down a new floor.  That small change has created a totally new look for the entire restaurant.  And with the new floor came a new sense of confidence as a team.  The Caliente team has heard me say many times before that I want the entire customer experience to be excellent.  For a little while, we were unable to make the needed changes to keep the restaurant decor up to the standards we want for our Caliente customers.  But we have made a first step... and it feels pretty good.  

Please understand that we hope all you guys know how much we want to make Caliente special for you.  While we can't change the aesthetics as often as we would like, we hope you know that we want to focus on you as individual customers and make you love Caliente more every time you visit.  Here's to many more future changes at Caliente
Because Valentines can be a downer for some people, Caliente has decided to help you curb some of the angst with Valentines quickly approaching. And because ladies typically value Valentines Day more than us men, we wanted to extend the invitation to the ladies of Hattiesburg who want an alternative to Valentines Day this year. 

Caliente is going to be hosting a Galentines Day on February 13th. Starting at 5:00PM all groups of 3 or more ladies will receive 13% off their purchases. Additionally, we'll be adding Spiked Pink Lemonade to our menu for the event (while supplies last). Last, instead of showing some sports show and playing music from Pandora, we will instead be showing the movies on Lifetime Network that night. (It looks like we'll be showing Made of Honor... a quirky new-ish Rom-Com starring Patrick Dempsey).
We look forward to a night of Ladies celebrating Ladies. Its going to be like Lilith Fair

    I consider myself just a normal guy who started a restaurant right out of college. I try to shoot it straight and tell you the real story of entrepreneurship, food, learning on the fly, and the oh so glamorous life of a restaurateur.
