Chocolate, Wine & Food Lovers Evening 2015 Sweet Deets + Ticket Giveaway

19 Jan

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and, you know what that means: yup, time for the annual Chocolate, Wine, & Food Lovers Evening! This year it’s going down on 2/5 from 6-9 at The Marriott Hotel & Spa in Stamford. This event has been held as a way to not only help people find the best drinks, food, and desserts in Fairfield County, but to also give attendees a chance to pick up some great gifts at the Valentine Boutique or via silent auctions. But, the real heart of the event is the cause: 100% of the proceeds go directly to Shelter for the Homeless, a Stamford-based organizaton that serves Lower Fairfield County by “[P]roviding temporary housing to homeless men, striving to obtain permanent supportive housing and services for men and women tailored  to meet their relevant needs, and empowering people to help themselves achieve their greatest level of self-sufficiency.”

Last year was so much fun, we talked with so many great people, ate so much great food and tried out so many new restaurants, drinks, chocolates, and cupcakes that it was well worth it. Tickets are just $60 and can be bought here, by calling (203) 406-0017, or online/at the door for $70 after 2/4.

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.
