Party, eat, and drink up @ The Best of the Gold Coast Party

17 Jul

The Best of the Gold Coast celebrates the best in restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and everything that matters in Fairfield County.  While we generally feel that results for contests such as this are inaccurate and don’t let the true stars shine, we feel that the Gold Coast awards from Moffly Media are pretty darn accurate.  Readers vote in their favorites and this year had record breaking amounts of votes!  If you’d like to give this year’s winners a gander, here they are.  And, if you’d like to see the winners for 2013, check out the latest issue of Greenwich, Westport, New Canaan-Darien, Stamford, or Fairfield Living magazines.  There’s also one more option:  check out the 9th Annual Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut party!

Lots of the winners will be there, sampling their wares and (most important to us) their food!  It’s all going down at the Stamford Hilton on July 25 from 6:30-9:30.  There will also be live music and we’ll be there, too.  Tickets are $65 now or $80 at the door and a portion of the ticket sales will be going directly to benefit the important work of Kids in Crisis in Cos Cob.

See you there?  Make sure to say hi.  We’re the ones stuffing our faces.

OmNomCT Honored with 2013 Best Blog Award by CT Press Club

2 Apr

Last year we entered the CT Press Club Awards contest, not really sure of how we’d do.  We knew we loved writing, we knew that we gave lots of love and attention to our blog, but we weren’t sure how that would translate into a competition.  Would people see our passion?  Would they get us?  Would they understand what it means to be OmNomCT? :)

We were very honored and excited to learn that we won the Best Writing for the Web and Best Blog Awards for the 2012 contest.  So, we resolved to enter again this year, seeing how we’d fare against all the other great writers and bloggers in Connecticut.   Sherry Cohen shared the results tonight and, kids, we’re pretty psyched.

There, amongst the list of great writers, is Dan and Kristien Del Ferraro, OmNomCT.  First place, Best Blog 2013 (Personal).

Again, we’d like to thank Sherry and everybody at CT Press Club, all the out of state judges who spent countless hours reading through entries, and all our readers.  Without you, OmNomivores, none of this would be possible or worth it.

Here’s to another great year and here’s to all the other winners…and here’s a copy of the placement in the meantime!

OmNomCT Wins Best Blog and Best Writing for the Web from CT Press Club!

19 Apr

When it rains, it pours!  On the heels of receiving The Hartford Courant Websters award for Best Food Blog in CT, we just received word yesterday that Kristien and I received two first place awards in the annual Connecticut Press Club awards.  The first place awards are in the categories of Best Blog and Best Writing for the Web.  We are truly honored to receive these awards from our peers and the out-of-state media judges.  Again, we’d like to thank all of our readers for making us great and inspiring us to keep writing more and to get better as the posts add up.  Also, thank you to the Connecticut Press Club for sponsoring this annual contest.  Congratulations to all the winners, including our fellow Stamfordite Kevin McKeever (Always Home and Uncool) who pulled in multiple awards.

See all the winners here!  Again, thanks for the love.

Sincerely yours in omnoming,

Dan and Kristien
