Riko’s Pizza Opens New Hope Street Spot . . . with a Bar!

10 Oct

Stamford is no stranger to pizza joints, especially when you count ’em up on Hope Street. Misto, Vinny’s Backyard, Amore, Springdale Pizza, Hope Pizza, Pappas, Papa John’s (gag), and even (double gag) Domino’s. But now there’s another place for Stamfordites and Springdalers to go: Riko’s Pizza. Their new restaurant is loacted at 886 Hope Street and is right next to Bank of America and is directly across from the Springdale train station. Park on the road (bring quarters) or in their newly paved lot to the left of the restaurant. Their newest spot is replacing their 581 Newfield Avenue location.

15 Dec

Logo for OmNomys

Well, here we are, already at the end of 2014. Man, how time flies. But fret not friends, because the end of another year means another celebration of the best of the best in Fairfield County. That’s right, it’s time for the 4th Annual OmNomys! By now most of you know how this works, but for those of you new here, this is a list of the best that we’ve experienced in 2014… NOT necessarily the best EVER in Fairfield County. If your favorite spot or food didn’t make it on here, maybe it was on our list back in 2011, 2012, or 2013… and if not, let us know so we can check it out in 2015! 

So, without further ado, here we go:

Best Ambiance: Cask Republic, Stamford

With not one, but two fireplaces, Cask Republic has a warm, rustic, and down-homey kind of vibe going on. It’s hard to think of a chill spot with more class. It’s the perfect place to meet up with friends, have some drinks (from which there are many to choose), and try out some great gastropub grub.

Win 2 Tix to Hoptoberfest Craft Beer Fest + Wing Contest in Shelton

30 Sep

Hoptoberfest CT

We’ve grown to become very picky about our hot wings. Seriously, like super picky.  We’ve had some awesome wings around the state, so we’re always keeping a mental wingopedia when we try new ones. So, we’d like to help you to add more wings to to that wingopedia in your noggin with two free tickets to Hoptoberfest Craft Beer Festival & Wing Contest! All you need to do is tell us how you like your wings here, on FB, or on Twitter using #Wingopedia. If we were entering (which we aren’t, that’d be mean if we won our own contest!), we’d say something like, “I like my wings spicy.  Like, actually spicy…not fake spicy.” The contest starts now and goes until Friday (10/3) at noon when we’ll announce the winner on our FB page and Twitter feed. 

Here are the deets for Hoptoberfest…and note that if you get your tickets online, they are still pretty affordable at only $25:

Vinny’s Backyard Goes Pink to Raise $ for Breast Cancer Treatment + Support – Stamford, CT

10 Apr

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.

Bring It: New England Brewing Co. Fest 2014 @ Little Pub

4 Feb

Little Pub NEBCO Fest 2014

Dumb snowstorm.  We don’t even know what the ridiculous name of this past storm was (Merlin? Lucius? Voldemort?), but we know that it sucked mainly because it hit the pause button on NEBCO Fest at Little Pub in Ridgefield.  But, chill…it was just the pause button.  There’s still plenty of New England Brewing Company brews available…and they’ve been aging for an extra day!  We bet you can taste that added depth that the day put in.
