Big, bold flavors perfectly executed. Fun and lively vibes. That’s what we took away from a recent visit to Tablao, a new Spanish-Mediterranean tapas and wine bar that opened at 86 Washington Street in SoNo back in May. In fact, we enjoyed it so much we can’t wait to go back to this hotspot again. What made it such a nice experience, exactly? Well, you’ll just need to read our review to find out. Continue reading

We don’t know who invented this Taco Tuesday crap, but we think pretty much EVERY day is a perfect day for tacos. Like, say, a few Saturdays ago when we finally hit up Rincon Taqueria in Norwalk after seeing, oh, we don’t know, pretty much ALL of our friends rave about it on Facebook and Instagram. See, we’re kind of taco fanatics, so it seemed a little ridiculous we hadn’t gotten to this authentic Mexican spot sooner.
The long and the short of it is, it totally lives up to the hype we’ve been seeing. Here’s why . . . Continue reading
After eating this one, you’ll need to roll over and sleep a bit . . .

The action goes down on June 4 from 2-5 with tickets costing $40 or $20 for designated drivers. You’ll get unlimited pours of beer, live music, and access to food trucks! Continue reading

Our original plan was to talk about the Connecticut Blind Beer Awards as we got closer to the event taking place at The Blind Rhino on April 23. But, well, the event sold out in a week. Part of that plan was to give away a pair of tix . . . and we’re sticking with that plan! BOOM! We’re giving away two tickets to this sold out event, so you best take advantage because you can’t get these tickets anymore. Continue reading
Community Plates, a non-profit run by volunteers, is looking for more food runners to help them accomplish their food rescue mission.
