Update: register for your free tickets here. Only 48 left as of 9:49 on 1/28.

Think about this word: ignite. It describes a word that shows something that goes from one form to another, something that is transformed by fire and soon engulfed in flames. Now, while Ignite Stamford won’t be lighting anyone or anything on fire at Cask Republic starting at 7:30 on 2/4, there’s still lots of other things going on like the fire of inspiration, the flames of passion.

Damn son, that’s some crazy symbolism, right? We got more, but we gonna get down to things now. For the first time ever, Ignite is taking place at Cask Republic, one of the busiest and most popular restaurants in Downtown Stamford and a favorite of OmNomCT and Ignite. On that night, 8 people will talk about topics for 5 minutes with 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. It’s tougher than it seems, believe us.

Cask Republic + Morello Bistro Offer Allagash + Blue Point Beer Dinners

16 Jan

There’s definitely no shortage of great restaurants that serve up some wicked good beer here in Fairfield County. Some are obvious choices like Cask Republic who throws down the gauntlet with 52 brews on tap, but some might not be as obvious like Morello Bistro in Greenwich. While they are known more for their wine and cocktail selection, they are increasingly trying to highlight good beer that will play well off of their inspired Italian fare.

So, what better way to check out the food at both places, than checking out two different beer dinners that they are both hosting.

Blue Point 5C Beer Dinner at Cask Republic Stamford

Presenting Cask Republic’s First Beer Dinner

Breaking beer news:  Cask Republic Stamford is hosting their first beer dinner.  Oh, and in the words of General Manager Casey Dohme, “It’s going to be pretty epic.”  That’s because Cask Republic will be featuring five specially selected Cask Ales right from Blue Point Brewing of Long Island.  They haven’t picked them out yet, but that’s part of the reason that they are heading out to the Blue Point Brewery Cask Ales Festival this weekend.  After sampling what they have to offer, the Cask Republic and Ginger Man crew will decide which 5 casks will make it to the 5C Blue Point Beer Dinner on Tuesday, May 6.  The inaugural beer dinner begins at 7 pm and costs $85 tax and tip.

We Pledge Allegiance to Good Beer + Food at Cask Republic – Stamford, CT

Beer overlooking the fireplace at Cask Republic Stamford

Although we went to the Friends and Family event to celebrate the opening of Cask Republic, we still felt like we were the last people in the world who hadn’t been there for a regular meal service.  Check-in after check-in, beer brag after beer brag, each friend telling us they were there made us green with envy.  So, after spending a few hours around Stamford doing errands, we decided to hit up this new spot (check out more details here) and experience the awesomeness everyone else already experienced.

It wasn’t just the sick selection of beer that we wanted to try out, either!  It was also the food from newly appointed Chef Juan Gonzalez that we were excited to try.  Like many chefs, he had started off washing dishes and prepping food, but he worked hard and graduated from culinary school at the International School of Tourism and Hotel Management in Puerto Rico.  From there he worked as a chef on a cruise ship and became Executive Chef of Pepin’s Cafe & Tasca in San Juan.  Then he came to America and worked at The Homestead 1766, Ocean Reef Club, and Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, and most recently was Chef de Cuisine at Post 154 with Executive Chef Alex Rosado.  That’s quite a resume!

Food for All 2013: Ending Hunger in Fairfield County with Community Plates

4 Sep

Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take things into your own hands.
–Clint Eastwood

Community Plates has always been about taking things into your own hands.  From their food runners that pick up food from local restaurants and stores then deliver them to local shelters and food organizations, to food shelters and other food organizations that feed the food insecure, to organizers who spend countless hours finding ways to get meals into the hands of the hungry.  And, it’s nice to be a part of the magic as we join the Community Plates Benefit Committee this year for an awesome event called Food for All 2013:  A Night to End Hunger in Fairfield County.  This great event doubles as a fundraiser for all the awesome work that they do every year.  In fact, they are hoping to rescue over 3,000,000 meals by 2014.  And, that shouldn’t be hard because since starting in 2011, they have already rescued over 2,000,000.

Food for All 2013, which is the third annual event, will take place on October 1 at The Loading Dock in Stamford.  And, there are two different tickets that you can get for the night, depending on what you’d like to do and how much you’d like to donate:
