The “going out for ice cream” experience is pretty standard these days: you wait in a brief line while browsing frozen vats of available flavors, you order, you pay, and before you know it you’re licking your way to dairy heaven. But, at Milkcraft, the newly opened ice cream shop in Fairfield, the experience has completely changed . . . and for good reason. Continue reading

Every year we look forward to a massive event that helps us get through winter. No, we’re not talking about football: we’re talking about the Chocolate, Dessert & Wine Lover’s Evening! This year is the 8th year . . . and it will definitely prove to be even better than the rest!
The action is going down on February 4 from 6-9 at the Stamford Marriot Hotel & Spa with all proceeds going directly to Shelter for the Homeless. There will be over 70 different dessert, chocolate, food, and adult drink vendors on hand to help ya warm up. In addition, there will be entertainment and tips from host Chef Plum, music, a 50/50 raffle, door prizes, and even chances to shop for Valentine’s Day gifts for your precious little love. Tickets are $45 per person or $80 if you buy them in pairs: perfect for a Valentine’s Day treat. Continue reading
Okay, so it appears that there are TWO International Bacon Days. Because, well, bacon. Can you really have one day for bacon? Pssssh. For the true, hardcore and devoted even two days is not enough . . . try 365.
But, we digress. Let’s talk about The Fat Elvis from Donut Crazy with locations in Shelton, Stratford, and hopefully soon in New Canaan. When we last visited Donut Crazy we, sadly, did not order a Fat Elvis donut. We nearly broke down in tears, whence we realized our folly. Continue reading
Yes, The 8th Annual Chocolate, Dessert & Wine Lover’s Evening isn’t going down until February 4th, 6 pm, at the Stamford Marriott, but if you act before December 1 you can save some serious bucks. Instead of paying $45 per ticket, you’ll pay only $35 which adds up if you’re going as a couple or with a friend. We’re just saying, but this will make a great holiday present or an early way to prep for Valentine’s Day. Think how nice that’ll be to be prepped and ready to go that far in advance!

After a long day of brewery hopping with Dan’s brother and new sister-in-law Chad & Lindsey, we were in the mood to play an intense game of mini golf at The Sports Center of Connecticut before hitting Dew Drop Inn in Derby, with our minds on wings as we pulled in, we were quickly distracted by the bright shining Donut Crazy sign right across the road. It’s like we have Food A.D.D., so of course we had to work it into our plans.
After Dan won mini golf (by only one point for the record, hehe), we hit up Donut Crazy to get us some dessert for late night. Upon entering, the sweet and doughy smells overcome you and then you feast your eyes upon them. Donuts, a crazy amount of donuts, everywhere. Over 36 flavors to be more specific. Yeah, you can’t help but get that kid in a candy store kind of feeling. Continue reading

All you have to do is come by the Orange Country Fairgrounds from 4-8 on May 22 with some dinero and a massive appetite! That’s because there is a crazy amount of food trucks that will be there!
