Lend a Helping Paw by Eating out Brazilian Style at Rodizio Grill in Stamford, CT

31 Jul

Hey, we’re fans of pets of all shapes and sizes…and food of all shapes and sizes.  Well, the good people at Rodizio Grill and Paws of Norwalk have brought both together.  Stop by Rodizio in Stamford on August 9, from 4-10 pm, and you’ll help raise money for the good cats and dogs of Connecticut.

Just a recap if you haven’t read our amazingly detailed bite-by-bite guide to Rodizio a while back:

• Rodizio Grill is a Brazilian steakhouse with flair
• You can order the salad bar that comes with their fun apps
• You can order The Full Rodizio that comes with an endless array of meat, the salad bar, and their fun apps
• Start the parade of meat by flipping your cue over so the green shows on top
• Gauchos will come by with meat upon meat until you flip over to red
• When you surrender and you’re ready for dessert, lay your cue down flat

So, here’s what Rodizio is doing to help:

1) When you get an adult meal, they’ll donate $5 to Paws.

2) When you get a kid’s meal, they’ll donate $2 to Paws.

3) When you get Danny’s favorite drink at Rodizio, the Caipirinha, they’ll donate $3.

Are you impressed?  No bad dog or cat jokes in this entire post!  Guess we’re getting old.

Have you ever been to a Brazilian steakhouse? 

What kind of pets do you have at home?  We’ve got a crazy Boston/Jack Russel mix named Maynard and two cats named Marley and Marshall.  Maynard likes to chew lightly on their heads to provoke them into playing.

Go for Gold at Stew Leonard’s Olympics Celebration! CT and NY

26 Jul

Meghan Bell at Stew Leonard’s has become our best friend.  She’s letting us know about the awesome things going down at Stew Leonard’s and their wine shops.  Well, we’ve got some fun events to share with you to get you into that 2012 Olympics spirit.  Unless noted by specific date, the events run from July 27 to August 12.  During that time, Stew Leonard’s will be donating all money from their Stew’s Wishing Wells in Norwalk, Danbury, and Yonkers to the Special Olympics.  So, let’s light this torch up, baby, and start the games!

Drinking Curls

First off, hit up Stew Leonard’s Wines on Friday, July 27 from 4 to 7 pm or Saturday, July 28 from 1-5 for the “Wide World of Spirits.”  Appropriately so, you’ll be able to have drinks from around the world.  Imagine if drinking was an Olympic sport?  Who among you would get the gold?

  • Caipirinha (South America)
  • Il Spr!z (Europe)
  • A sake drink (Asia)
  • Amarula (Africa)

Cheese Slinging

  • July 28-29:  Stew Leonard’s delis will see who takes the gold in terms of cheese.  The contestants?  English, French, Italian, and American cheeses.  Come by, taste, and vote.  The results will be on their FB page on July 30.

Dessert Downing

  • Bakers at Stew Leonard’s will go crazy with cupcakes, cookies, and other desserts using the Olympic rings and the games as inspiration.

Caffeine High Jump

  • They have created a special blend called Stew’s “Olympic Blend” Coffee.  Perk up and see how much you can drink.

International Hot Bar Body(un)building

  • Every day at Norwalk, Newington, and Yonkers you can check out a new country’s cuisine at their hot bar.  This is one competition to unbuild that pretty figure of yours.  That’s okay, it’s worth it.  Nothing an hour or so at the gym can’t cure.

Pizza Tossing

  • At Norwalk and Newington, you can check out Olympics pizzas that are made with peppers, mimicking the Olympic rings.  Salute the flag, then eat it.

Bovine Biathlon 

  • Say hi to Wow the Cow who will be wearing a toga and will be crowned in laurels.  Taking it back, old school style.
