30 Sep

You know, sometimes there’s just so much going on around Fairfield County that there just isn’t enough time for us to create individual posts for each event.  We are just two people, but we want to get the news out and spread the word about openings, deals, discounts, events, and everything else food related.  Yes, we have been updating our Events calendar pretty well, but we think it’ll be easier to check out what’s fresh and fun in the 203 with little nummy and yummy bites of goodness.

Enough chitter chatter, let’s start:

Danbury

On October 6, crawl or limp on over to the 1st ever Apocalyptic Rocktober Zombiefest at Ives Concert Park.  Entrance is $10 and that gives you access to “killer” live music from Pat Horgan & Thunder Road, food and brews, a zombie beauty contest for men and women, a thriller dance party, a screening of “Night of the Living Dead,” a “silent but deadly auction” (not the sbd you’re thinking of), and even a raffle for a dream vacation for just $10 a pop.

Norwalk

Chef Arik Bensimon’s, formerly of Napa & co in Stamford, has been working hard on opening his next venture:  The Spread.  It’ll be located at 70 N Main Street.  We wish Arik and his associates the best of luck, though with combined skill like that, you don’t need it.  Follow them on FB for updated info.
