Get Your Jolly On: SoNo Santa Crawl Hits 8 Spots

2 Dec


Ho ho ho and ten bottles of rum.

Yeah, we love the holidays and here’s another reason to love them:  The first ever SoNo Santa Crawl!  It’s going down this Saturday from 12 pm to 8 pm and will cover 8 different spots in SoNo.  All you need to do is buy tickets here and you’ll be ready to go.  The $10 tickets get you an official SoNo Santa Crawl 2013 t-shirt and cup, drink specials for $3, $4, or $5, and even free parking at the Maritime Center Garage.  Plus, when you’re all done you know how much you’ll want some pizza to cut into all those brews and drinks, so SoNo Pizza is selling slices at $2 a pop.

9 Restaurants to Dump Your Date at this Valentine’s Day…You’re Welcome

8 Feb

Been looking for the perfect time to break up with your (in)significant other? We know, we know…she’s a bit of a freak (and not in the good way) and he plays poker with “the boys” way too much. Let’s help you get past this relationship so you can find your way onto greener pastures, calmer seas, and better matches on eHarmony or JDate.  Yes, we’re giving you that extra nudge by providing you with a list of places that are not only perfect for that break up talk, but also have so many hotties and studs that when you’ve ditched that good for nothing you can immediately get your flirt on with someone else.  And the food and adult beverages are good too, so you can eat/drink away the guilt. Ooooh, we’re so scandalous!

Tell us your break up stories and drama by commenting below.

Bar Q, Stamford: yeehaw! Check out the hot new urban cowboy scene here. Get on mechanical bull (check for availability to be sure), get thrown off, then become delirious. Look at date and say: What? Who are you? Sorry, wrong guy.

Barcelona, Greenwich, Norwalk, Stamford: when the chairs and tables move away at night, the party begins.  During the shuffle, tell your date that you want to see other people, then get lost in the crowd.

Bodega Taco Bar, Darien and Fairfield: have a server splash you with a glass of water then slap you across the face. Explain your sordid history, your date leaves, and then drink some tequila with the chicos y chicas. Don’t forget to leave extra gratuity for the show.

Dolce Cubano, Stamford: explain to your date that you are actually a Cuban refugee. Jump on random boat on nearby dock. Wave bye. Wait for date to leave, then come back and throw those drinks down the hatch at the bar.
