Now that we’ve got a few days off from work to celebrate the holidays, you might be thinking: what with h-e-double-hockey-sticks do I do with all this free time? Well, listen up here, we’ve got a great idea: visit The Rink at Harbor Point, located at 200 Commons Park South. You’ll see they have special hours going on from tomorrow until January 2 with pricing at very affordable prices (listed below).
Make it a date night, make it a family night, make it a BFFL night! And, after you’ve done your fair share of Camel Spins, Death Spirals, Mohawks, and Hydrant Lifts (no, we didn’t have to look those up, no way), chances are you’ll want to chill out a bit in Harbor Point. So, let’s offer you up some walkable choices of things to do afterwards and continue your holiday cheer:
Whip Eat Well: 36 Dyke Lane
You’ll eat well here with lots of breakfast choices (The Kavorkian features bacon, egg, and cheese with a chicken cutlet, hash browns, and hot sauce), soups, 13 different salads, sandwiches like the Mother Clucker, wraps, items from the grill, and vegetarian options. Tip: check the Specials for that day to get some killer deals.
Top-This: 140 Washington Boulevard
Look, just because it’s already cold out, doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy some nice fro-yo! In fact, we tend to crave ice cream and froyo just as much as summertime. But, Top This also has plenty of fresh juices, a coffee bar, breakfast options, plenty of panini, lots of salad choices, they’ve got soups and salads, as well as more options.
Corbo’s South Side 90 Washington Boulevard
Corbo’s has long been a favorite stop for people during breakfast and lunch time in Greenwich and they started sharing the love recently with Stamford. Whether you’re looking for breakfast options, pizza, calzones, soups, salads, sandwiches, or grill options, Corbo’s is a great choice. Might we recommend The Roadie which is chicken and meatball parm on a roll or grinder, your choice.
World of Beer: 18 Harbor Point Road
Boasting 50 taps and over 500 bottles at your finger tips, WoB is a great choice if you’re a big beer lover. The food here is ok, but, honestly, we’d start at WoB, have some brews, then head down to . . .
Paloma: 15 Harbor Point Road
Yes, Chef Aarón Sánchez’s restaurant in Stamford is offering up lots of options for you whether you’re talking about lunch, brunch, or dinner. His food focuses on Mexican and other Latin American countries. Go big with entrees or go small with apps, but whatever you do, make sure to order their killer cocktails
Pinot’s Palate: 25 Harbor Point Road
With a little pre-planning, you could find a painting class here at Pinot’s and make a full day of hanging out in Harbor Point. They have wine, beer, and sometimes cocktails always priced like it’s Happy Hour.
