Bestselling Author Chris Bohjalian at Ferguson Library w/ Wine + Food Reception from 3 Area Restaurants

23 Apr

Perhaps one of the finer things in life is sitting back with a great book, drinking some wine, and savoring some food.  If this is your kinda heaven, then you’ll definitely want to stop by The Ferguson Library in the heart of Downtown Stamford for a special event with Chris Bohjalian on 4/28/14.  This New York Times bestselling author (his most recent is The Light in the Ruins) has penned seventeen books, nine of them populating the coveted NY Times list.

Tickets to the talk and tasting are $15 (proceeds to benefit the library) and are extremely limited, so make sure to get your tickets right away.  Doors open at 6:30 for a wine and food reception provided by Asiana Bistro, Capeesh? and Zody’s 19th Hole.  Chris Bohjalian then takes the podium at 7 with a book sale and signing afterwards.  

This will be a great event if you’re a Chris Bohjalian fan…or an avid reader in general.  Also, you’ll have a chance to try out two of Stamford’s newest restaurants:  Asiana Bistro and Capeesh?.

Jason Sobocinski + John Barricelli Book Signing and Tasting for The Wakeman Town Farm, 5/6

29 Apr

Behold the awesomeness!

Yes, after a successful swag run that included white shoes at $20 at Marshall’s Shoes in Westport, I snuck into Barnes & Noble while Kristien oohed and aahed over the vast array of shoes.  Barnes & Noble, my oasis, my escape from the monotony of shoe shopping…how I love you.  Well, wouldn’t you know what we found when Kristien made her way in?

Click through to purchase/look at book at B&N

A double dose of culinary and cheeseuary awesomeness in the form of a book signing!  Yes, so just stop in at the Barnes & Noble in Westport on 5/6/12 from noon-2 pm and you’ll be able to meet Jason Sobocinski from Caseus Fromagerie and Bistro and John Barricelli from The SoNo Baking Company.  Their books will be for sale, and you’ll be able to get them signed all in support of a bookfair for the Wakeman Town Farm education center in Westport.  We checked and you’ll be able to bring in your own copies, oh intrepid foodicionados.  This is for a fundraiser, though, so consider buying both books to be signed.  Oh, but wait, did you catch that other word on the sign?  Yes, TASTING.  Muahahahaha!  You’d be absolutely dumb not to attend.  Think ahead, too…wouldn’t this be a perfect gift for your lovely wife or your mother on that special day that comes only once a year?  Or, think of your favorite bloggers named Dan and Kristien Del Ferraro…

You are probably familiar with both Jason and John, because they seem to be everywhere these days.  Jason is well known for his awesome restaurant, food truck, and store Caseus in New Haven and also for hosting The Big Cheese on The Food Network.  Also, John has received countless kudos from the media and fans for his food and baked goods (especially our ode to the stuffed french toast) and  hosts his own show called Everyday Baking on PBS.

In addition, please also consider coming in earlier than the book signing to support Wakeman Town Farm.  Starting at 10 am, there will be lots of fun events and green activities that celebrate how amazing farms are and why we love spring.  This will be a great place to take your kids, hint hint wink wink nod nod.
