CT Food News, Vol. 32: Usher in Spring w/ Events, Deals, Dinner + Drinks

19 Mar

We’ve heard a nasty rumor that spring is just around the corner. Can you believe that? We’re not so sure with some snow in the forecast for tomorrow, but we’ll stick with some positive thoughts to help us plow through this winter ennui. Enough, right? So, get out of those doldrums (kickass vocabulary usage this week, right?) and check out all the great things going on in Fairfield County! Just look at some of the awesome things:


3/20 Mama’s Boy in Norwalk will be hosting their 3rd Annual Customer Appreciation Party, starting at 9. You’ll get a free glass of champagne when you arrive, two for one Dirty South Cocktails, $6 okratinis, 1/2 off glasses of wine, $2 Fireball shots, $20 bourbon bowls, and live music.

CT Food News, Vol. 28: Deals, Dinners, Dirt Wings, Wine Tastings, CT Beer News + More

7 Nov

Sometimes putting this list of events, deals, and news together isn’t too tough. There might be a few things going on to share, but then there are times when there is so much going on . . . so much that it becomes almost overwhelming! Well, this is one of those weeks! There’s an incredible amount of news and things to look forward to here in Fairfield County and the CT. Always fresh, always new, always nomworthy: here’s OmNomCT’s weekly Food News . . .

Props, Deals, and News

Not for the faint of heart: Farmington High School students recently boycotted the food that they are being served for lunch. People tend to forget that teenagers actually DO have paletes and DO care about the food they eat.

J. Timothy’s in Plainville was named as one of the top 21 Chicken Wing Joints in the country. People would sell their children for their Dirt Wings . . . and the beer culture at this spot is out of control awesome. Congrats!

When you check into Jax & Co in Norwalk on any social media account, tag them, and get 5% off any day, every day. When you’re there, check out “The Monster,” which has three eggs, house bacon, tasso, sausage, white cheddar, Monterey Jack, charred onions, and chilies, served on a ciabatta for just $7.

Events and Dinners

10/11 Farmboys Smokin’ BBQ will be at Black Hog (a pair made in heaven!) in Oxford from 1-5. So, make a day of it: pound down some good brews and nom away on some awesome pulled pork, chicken sandwiches, coleslaw, and their killer smoked mac & cheese. How killer? Enough that we’d order that same dish two years in a row for Kristien’s birthday bash.

CT Beer + Food News, Vol. 20: Save Ferris, Chiles, Cocktails, Exciting Brews + Exclusive Events

11 Sep

Before we get started with our weekly beer, food, and event news for the 203 (and beyond), we’d like to just thank you all for reading.  Over the past few years we have seen our blog grow so much, but we couldn’t do it without you.  Literally, we couldn’t do it without you.  Look, without you we’d just be writing all of this with only 1 page view, maybe 2 if we both looked at what we posted.  Well, thanks again.  Always feel free to ask us questions or send event and info our way.

-Dan and Kristien
