Do you know what’s sad about it almost being Labor Day?  Yeah, we know…you can’t wear white again.  But, then again, who are we to follow silly rules?  Guess what?  On Tuesday Dan will wear his white linen suit with white shoes just to show what he thinks about these rules.  Yeah, don’t spend your life following all the rules and doing what society tells you!  Instead, come along with us as we tell ya all about some great events that are coming up as well as hit ya with some beer news from across the state.

CT Food News, Vol. 17: Events, Free Drinks, Fundraisers, Food Truck News, Openings, CT on TV, and Beer…Lots of Beer

14 Aug

This has been, arguably, one of our busiest summers, ever!  We’ve been so active, going to festivals, attending parties, going to dinners, and having a ton of fun with friends…and we sure hope you’ve been doing the same.  So, we’re changing things up a bit this week.  Normally we share Thursday through next Sunday’s events, but we’re going to add in one more week because we won’t be posting events next week.  Let’s just say we’ll be chowing down on some poutine…

Thanks for reading, as always.  We love that we can share fresh, and original events with you and oftentimes breaking and exclusive news.  See ya soon!


8/14 Sign of the Whale, with a roof top beer garden, opens up tonight in the Harbor Point area of Stamford.  Find them just a little bit down from where Paloma and World of Beer are.  And, if you’ve signed up as a VIP, you’ll get your first drink free tonight from 5-8 OR you could just keep wearing your wristband after the Beach Boys show and get a drink free, too.

8/14-15 The Beer Garden at Shippan Landing has delayed hours today and tomorrow due to a private party, so stop on by starting at 6:30.  You can also check them out this weekend starting at 2 pm to get your drank on early!

Bartaco, Moja, and Safita to Open in Westport at National Hall Complex! Yeah Variety!

8 Oct

Porkslap Ale (it’s boss) with tacos at Bartaco Stamford

Update:  Moja is now open and bartaco is having a soft opening this week, 4 pm until closing with normal hours start with lunch on 6/17 at 11:30!

 

Located at 20 Wilton Road in Westport (the old Peter Coppola space & next door to Save the Children), bartaco opens its doors to the public today after 4pm for a soft opening. The 4pm opening time will take place all week and we will begin lunch service next Monday, 6/17 at 11:30am.

It’s been spinning around the rumor mill for over a year, but just a few days ago there was confirmation from Vanessa Inzitari of Westport Daily Voice:  Bartaco is coming to Westport.  This will be the fourth Bartaco to hit the streets, with one in West Hartford, one in Stamford, and the other in Port Chester.  The lease is now signed, so you’ll be able to get your drinks and get stuffed on tacos at 20 Wilton Road.  Although we were critical of Bartaco in our last review, we can always give the Westport location a shot.    

Moja sake, from their FB page

According to Vanessa’s article, Bartaco will open in the spring, perfect timing for the margaritas and drinks that lots of people rave about.  But, even if Bartaco isn’t your style, there will be two other choices of restaurants.  You could check out Moja:   Asian fusion with Brazilian flare.  Another great piece of news here is that it looks like they will have lots of custom and unique sakes!  According to their FB page (website is down right now), “Our mission at Moja is to deliver a healthy, fresh, unique eating experience based on asian cuisine with flavors from around the world, served in a vibrant, upbeat environment.”  We’re all on board with that.
