Celebrate 1 Year w/ free cocktails, deals, and snacks @ Bar Q in Stamford

5 Jun

•••

When we talked with Bob LeRose about the opening of Bar Q in Stamford to say we were excited would be an understatement.  Small plates of BBQ with great drink options?  It seemed like a no-brainer!  Now, having been there five times, we can say the food has definitely improved and they’ve worked through their opening kinks.  But, it’s crazy to think that they have been open for a year already!

And, with that year of being open, they’ve changed things up a bit.  First off, they’ve revamped their menu by adding some larger BBQ plates, salads, sandwiches, and other options that will get you excited like the Bar Q Cuban sandwich.  They have also added in good options for family dining such as the Sunday evening $50 family style dinner that gets you 3 fixins’, 5 BBQ items, and 3 sides.  And, you also might have heard about their new concept on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights starting at 10:  Bar Q Saloon.  Cowgirls dance on the bar and serve up some mighty fine drink specials.  They play country music and, at times, they even have a mechanical bull for your to conquer out on their patio.  You’ll need to follow them on FB to see when the bull has arrived.

Nomworthy Bites of Connecticut Food News, Volume 1: Zombies, Dinosaurs, Dogs, Parrots, and Pumpkins

30 Sep

You know, sometimes there’s just so much going on around Fairfield County that there just isn’t enough time for us to create individual posts for each event.  We are just two people, but we want to get the news out and spread the word about openings, deals, discounts, events, and everything else food related.  Yes, we have been updating our Events calendar pretty well, but we think it’ll be easier to check out what’s fresh and fun in the 203 with little nummy and yummy bites of goodness.

Enough chitter chatter, let’s start:

Danbury

On October 6, crawl or limp on over to the 1st ever Apocalyptic Rocktober Zombiefest at Ives Concert Park.  Entrance is $10 and that gives you access to “killer” live music from Pat Horgan & Thunder Road, food and brews, a zombie beauty contest for men and women, a thriller dance party, a screening of “Night of the Living Dead,” a “silent but deadly auction” (not the sbd you’re thinking of), and even a raffle for a dream vacation for just $10 a pop.

Norwalk

Chef Arik Bensimon’s, formerly of Napa & co in Stamford, has been working hard on opening his next venture:  The Spread.  It’ll be located at 70 N Main Street.  We wish Arik and his associates the best of luck, though with combined skill like that, you don’t need it.  Follow them on FB for updated info. 

Pat Pascarella , owner of Cortina Pizzeria (formeraly Pizzeria Rosso) has opened up his dream restaurant, Bar Sugo, at 102 Wall Street in Norwalk.  On the menu?  Six different versions of meatballs, fresh housemade pasta, and lots of small plates such as prosciutto wrapped polenta fries.  Let the noming begin on October 5th!
