Free pizza? Free pizza! Yes, it’s true! Just stop by Steven Fox Jewelry at 8 Lewis Street from 11-4 on May 7 for free pizza. Oh, but not any pizza: we’re talking about New Haven Pizza Truck. While you take a seat and enjoy some slices courtesy of Steven Fox Jewelry, you can learn about Kids in Crisis, an organization that we care deeply about.

Then, if you’d like to, you can donate money to their organization to help them fill in the funding gap that is left.  Continue reading

Didn’t give enough change to The Salvation Army this past December? Step up your game and help give back with Food for Thought Restaurant Week!

A few months back we wrote a post, asking restaurants to help take part in a brand new kind of restaurant week: Food for Thought Restaurant Week. Well, look here good people, it’s just around the corner now. The premise is that you go to one of the participating restaurants in Connecticut or Rhode Island for any meal between 1/24-1/30, bring the printed donation coupon, eat out, and 10% of your bill will go to The Salvation Army! That easy, that simple to help out. Continue reading

Turn the Page: A Novel Affair Returns to The Ferguson Library April 9

17 Mar

A library isn’t just a home for books and magazines, though many people see them this way. No, a library is a gathering place, a resource, a place to learn new skills, experience new things, and to feel like a part of the community. And, nowhere is this more true than at The Ferguson Library in Stamford where there are always a ton of things going on like book talks, Meet the Author nights, children’s events, fairs, festivals, and special events.

Speaking of special events: The Ferguson Library is about ready to start the next chapter of a successful year with their annual A Novel Affair event. Tickets for the 4/9 event from 5:30-8:30 are $125 and can be bought here. This is actually our third time going and we’re very proud to be one of the media sponsors this year, too.
