Daphne will be signing copies of her newest bestseller, too.

Starting at 7:00pm we’ll have the honor of moderating a lively discussion with New York Times best-selling author and Emmy Award-winning co-host of ABC’s The Chew, Daphne Oz as she shares her inspiration behind her new book, The Happy Cook: 125 Recipes for Eating Every Day Like It’s the Weekend, as well as ideas, tips, advice and more to help even the most nervous or reluctant novice transform into a happy, confident cook.

 

After our interview, we’ll open up the floor for audience questions and the evening will wrap up with a reception and book signing.

This event will take place in the Community Room and is free to all thanks to the wonderful folks at the Darien Library.

Hope to see you there!

83 degree days?  We’ve made it, brahh!  So, you best believe that we’re going to share with you some great events for you to enjoy some time outside…even some all summer long.  As always, these are new listings that we haven’t covered on our blog yet…no need to be repetitive, huh?  The full list of events can be found here if you’re interested.

Oh beehive!  That’s cuz one of the world’s largest observation beehives is coming to Stew Leonard’s in Norwalk, starting at 11 am.  The hive will hold more than 50,000 honeybees and measures 4X5 feet.  Seems like a Common Core question in the making, huh?  The honey will eventually be collected (over 100 lbs. worth) and will then be sold right at Stew Leonard’s.  At the height of the season, there will be 75,000 bees inside!

KC and Anne will be playing the Station Eats Stamford outdoor beer garden starting at 6:30.  Get some burgers, get some brews, and just chill.
