15 Oct

Parallel Post's Hello Kitty picture from Parallel Post

Excuse us for a second. We’re still trying to recover from some heart-wrenhing news that we discovered a few weeks ago. Yes, yes…it’s true, it’s all true. Sanrio revealed that Hello Kitty is actually not a kitty. She’s actually a girl dressed as a kitty! We know, we know, your world is shattered, and you’re still trying to pick up the pieces…us too…us too.

Full House @ Coalhouse for NEBCO Dinner to Benefit Bennett Cancer Center

8 Oct

Coalhouse New England Brewing Dinner Diners

There are lots of surreal moments that we remember. One of the most recent was rolling up to Coalhouse Pizza on Monday and hearing the DJ on 95.9 talk about the dinner we were headed to. WHAT? A shout out to Coalhouse Pizza and New England Brewing coming together to raise vital funds for the Bennett Cancer Center! Hours later, after a sprawling, decadent, and pourworthy dinner, attendees had raised a total of $1,200!

Vinny’s Backyard Goes Pink to Raise $ for Breast Cancer Treatment + Support – Stamford, CT

10 Apr

There are a bunch of things that we miss so much after moving from Stamford to Greenwich…and one of those things happens to be Vinny’s Backyard right in the Springdale area of Stamford.  While you might look at Vinny’s from the outside and think it’s nothing too special, once you try the wings you will be enlightened, brothers and sisters.  We consistently rank Vinny’s wings (Original, Sweet & Sour, BBQ, Chipotle, General Tso’s, Garlic Parmesan, or Sweet Thai Chili) as one of our favorites in the area, plus it’s a great place to try out one of their cracker-thin pizzas or to even straddle up to the bar and have some brewskis.  

Not that you need permission from us to hit up Vinny’s because it is a favorite local spot, but you’ll definitely need to come by April 24, 2014 from 5 pm until 1 am for a special fundraising night.  Vinny’s will be donating 25% of all beverage sales directly to the CT chapter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  The money raised will help to provide women with mammograms, education, and assistance with breast cancer treatment for those who can’t afford it.

New England Brewing Co. + Coalhouse Pizza Go Pink with a Killer Meal, Raising $1,000!

23 Oct

Over 100 people packed Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford on Monday, 10/21, for a five course dinner that featured the beer of New England Brewing Company.  Matt Westfall (head brewer) and Sebastian D’Agostino (Assistant brewer) were on hand to talk about their beer and to partake in the awesomeness that Chef Eddie Hurtado, the kitchen staff, and the pizzaioli had in store for that night.

Yes, everybody was there for the NEBCO-infused food and the hard to find brews, but they were also there for an even greater cause…helping to eradicate breast cancer.  With ticket sales and a generous donation from Gerard Robertson, owner of Coalhouse, $1,000 was raised and given to Stamford Hospital’s Bennett Center.
