Anthony Bourdain is coming to the Grand Theater @ Foxwoods Casino on October 8 . . . and we’ve got your shot at not 1, not 2, not even 3 pairs of tix. We’re talking 4 pairs of tix up for grabs! Anthony will come on stage at 8 . . . and that’s when The Hunger tour begins in CT. Now, just a note: this is the only stop in CT, so if you’re planning on seeing him, this is your shot!
Here’s more about The Hunger tour:
Chef, author, and raconteur Anthony Bourdain is best known for traveling the globe on his stomach, on his TV show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. He has established himself as a professional gadfly, bête noir, advocate, social critic, and pork enthusiast, recognized for his caustic sense of humor worldwide. He is as unsparing of those things he hates as he is evangelical about his passions. The Hunger serves audiences an all new live show featuring an unyielding, brutally honest monologue reflecting on diverse culture, street cuisine and his travels to lesser-known locations around the world, followed by an open Q&A session. Currently filming the hit CNN original series Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown (season seven premiered Sunday, April 24; 9pm ET/PT), Bourdain will bring audiences a menu loaded with lots of laughs, serious discussions and unapologetic irreverence.

You know it’s officially fall when Chowdafest, the most badass and decadent chowder fest in New England, comes back to CT. This year Chowdafest continues right at Sherwood Island State Park (the second year there) on October 2 from 11-3. Tickets are a measly $15 or $5 for kids (AAA saves you 20%) . . . and we can guarantee that you’ll eat way more than that in chowders, soups, samples, and more while you’re there. Plus, a portion of proceeds benefit the food rescue work of Community Plates, as well as Friends of Sherwood Island and Kids Helping Kids Foundation. Now, let’s get down and dirty and dig into this steaming hot bowl of awesomeness that is Chowdafest 2016: Continue reading
Have you ever passed a REALLY REALLY nice house for sale that you weren’t actually in the market for, but so badly wanted to tour it just to see how beautiful it was inside? And have you ever fantasized about how amazing it would be to enjoy an amazing meal prepared just for you by a renowned chef inside one of those home’s award-winning kitchens? Well, dream no longer. That’s EXACTLY what you get to do if you attend the first-ever Kitchen Crawl event put on by realtor Judy Michaelis in association with our friends at CTBites and Moffly Media’s AtHome Magazine. And the best part? While you’re enjoying all these amazing sights, smells, and tastes, you’ll be raising money for a charity near and dear to our hearts, Community Plates, whose mission it is to end food insecurity in America.
This is how it all goes down: Continue reading
Whole Foods Market in Greenwich is hosting a weeklong party full of food, giveaways and more to celebrate their grand re-opening! That’s 7,000 square feet of additional space . . . pretty cool. What’s been added into all that extra room? There’s a pizza station, a hot and salad bar open all day, a coffee and juice bar, cookie bar, bigger selection of breads including Norwalk’s own Wave Hill Bread, expanded selection of items on the shelves including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, a ridiculously amazing olive bar, and a speedier checkout experience with four express registers.

Just last week Chicken Joe’s started serving their wildly popular options like the Baby Special (1/4 lb. chicken nuggets w/ fries and soda), High School Special (1/2 lb. nugs), and College Wrap (nugs, cones, American cheese, honey mustard) right out of their brand-spanking new food truck. Oh, and you could say that people have already caught on. For their first two days serving up food in Greenwich, they sold out!
Look for them around the Greenwich area and all across Westchester. Also, be on the lookout for them as they serve some nugs, cones, wraps, and more at festivals like Adopt-a-Dog and the Holiday Stroll in Greenwich. Follow the truck here or visit their brick and mortar restaurants here.
