7/11 is a lucky combo of numbers, especially because on that day you’ll be able to get the amazing Hotsy breakfast sandwich for just $1. Just stop by any Garden Catering restaurant from opening until 11 and order that Hotsy.
So, people: chill. Summer goes until September 22, so stop saying that summer’s over. And, with the crazy amount of events, deals, special events, brunches, and beer goodness, it’s clear that summer’s alive and well. This is really an amazing list this week and we hope that you get to do even do a 1/4 of the things that we’ve planned out for you here. As always, help us spread the word, pass this along, and if you’re making a reservation or learn about something great because of us, let the restaurant or organizers know.
Hey, people, Slice of Saugatuck is back and you need to get yo’self there. All you need to do is bring $10 ($5 for kids) for a ticket on 9/12 from 12-3 in the Saugatuck part of Westport. When you arrive at any of the ticket stations or the main area in Bridge Square (where Kawa Ni is). After you purchase your entry, you’ll get a map of Saugatuck (deliciously shaped like a piece-a pizza) so you can find all the spots to discover. You’ll also get a Golden Passport that lists all the places where you can nom away on free bites of food. When you visit 10 or more spots (and why wouldn’t you?) you become eligible for various $25 gift certificates. Continue reading

5/21 There’s a Spring Fling going on at Luxe in Westport 2night from 7-10. There will be drink specials, live music, new and exciting wines, and passed small plates. Spring Fling at Luxe in Westport tonight.
5/21 Local SoNo is hosting BeerBQ tonight for their 1 Year Anniversary!

We do love going to Harbor Yard for ball games to watch the Bridgeport Bluefish, but we’ve always been disappointed with the beer choices. Look, you go to a baseball game to have a hot dog, a burger, and some brewskis. A few years back we remember having a good beer, but every time since then it’s been bleh. But, worry no more beer guzzlers of CT: things are about to change.
Lots of us have the week off or some much needed downtime over the next few days, so let’s make the most of it, right? And, we’ll definitely help to do our part by giving you some great things to do, check out, and be a part of. Also, please check out this list of places in Fairfield County that will be hosting special Easter brunches and dinners.
4/3 LeRouge in Westport will be hosting a special chocolate egg decorating day! You’ll get to paint 6 mini eggs each and 1 medium egg. Times are 10-11, 5-6, or 6:30-7:30 and the cost is either $25 per person or $80 for a family of 4. Call up Aarti at (203) 293-6106 to set your spot!
We’ve heard a nasty rumor that spring is just around the corner. Can you believe that? We’re not so sure with some snow in the forecast for tomorrow, but we’ll stick with some positive thoughts to help us plow through this winter ennui. Enough, right? So, get out of those doldrums (kickass vocabulary usage this week, right?) and check out all the great things going on in Fairfield County! Just look at some of the awesome things:
3/20 Mama’s Boy in Norwalk will be hosting their 3rd Annual Customer Appreciation Party, starting at 9. You’ll get a free glass of champagne when you arrive, two for one Dirty South Cocktails, $6 okratinis, 1/2 off glasses of wine, $2 Fireball shots, $20 bourbon bowls, and live music.
Take the sting out of the cold weather and warm up with some great wine and food at Bar Sugo in SoNo. Chef Pat Pascarella, will be hosting a series of wine and food pairings that cost just $35 (plus tip) per person. That’s a steal, but the real deal comes when you attend all five classes: you’ll get a $75 gift certificate for two people. In addition, you’ll also get a small plate certificate that you can hand in for some great Italian tapas when you visit Bar Sugo again. To secure your spot, e-mail Pat and co. with the date(s) that you’d like to attend.
