There are a bunch of things that we miss so much after moving from Stamford to Greenwich…and one of those things happens to be Vinny’s Backyard right in the Springdale area of Stamford. While you might look at Vinny’s from the outside and think it’s nothing too special, once you try the wings you will be enlightened, brothers and sisters. We consistently rank Vinny’s wings (Original, Sweet & Sour, BBQ, Chipotle, General Tso’s, Garlic Parmesan, or Sweet Thai Chili) as one of our favorites in the area, plus it’s a great place to try out one of their cracker-thin pizzas or to even straddle up to the bar and have some brewskis.
Not that you need permission from us to hit up Vinny’s because it is a favorite local spot, but you’ll definitely need to come by April 24, 2014 from 5 pm until 1 am for a special fundraising night. Vinny’s will be donating 25% of all beverage sales directly to the CT chapter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The money raised will help to provide women with mammograms, education, and assistance with breast cancer treatment for those who can’t afford it.
Also, if you come in wearing pink from 6-11 pm, you’ll get a pretty prize from the Party with Komen Committee Chairs and Volunteers who will be there and celebrating with ya. Organizers Lauren Nobles Rhodes and Kelley “with an E!” Lombardo say you can also look forward to Pink Drink specials all. night. long.
And, once you’ve had a taste of the food and drinks, make sure to come down to Vets Park in Norwalk on May 10 from 7-11 am for the 2014 Komen Fairfield County Race for the Cure. More info about this event, different running/walking options, and how to get involved can be found here.
