Dino Poutine is killer, unique to Dinosaur Stamford no more

Now you have another reason to hit up Dinosaur Bar-b-que in Stamford:  Happy Hour!

Nice char and sauce on the wings

Yup yup.  Just stop by from 3-7, Monday to Friday, and get a $1 off of all beer, liquor, and wine.  Plus, have your pick of some of their best apps for just $5:  chili on the half-shell, our favorite Dino Poutine, or two pork, beef, or burger sliders.  Did you know that people went seriously crazy for the Dino Poutine after our review of Dinosaur Bar-b-que?  We’re not talking just people in Fairfield County…we’re talking in the entire Northeast.  Specifically, when Dinosaur Bar-b-que shared that they would be adding Dino Poutine to all Dinosaur menus after people begged and signed away their first born, they shared our article and a picture of the heavenly dish.  Would you believe that one picture got thousands of views, 173 likes on FB, and tons of comments?  Seriously, how could anyone deny the power of the poutine?  In addition, Dino Stamford will be providing a smaller stash of wings for just $3.95.

Not like you really need another reason, but we just gave you another reason to justify your BBQ addiction.  Yes, you’re welcome. ;)

Cheers! Local Wine and Beer Blind Tasting at Bottlerocket of Westport, CT

23 Sep

A while back, we told you about Bottlerocket opening up in Westport.  Yup, they’re the guys who have a fun way to organize their wines.  Select your wine by checking out the seafood, meat, poultry, treats, take-out, organic section, or any other of the themed sections in the store.  But, they also have a great beer and liquor selection, if you haven’t stopped by yet.  

They’ll be showing off some of their wine and beer on 9/27 from 7-8 with their first ever Happy Hour.  The focus?  A blind tasting of local wine and beer.  Tickets are $25 in advance (call them at 259-3939) or $30 at the door.  They’ll have some local drinks and some “out-of-towner” drinks.  It’ll be up to you in the blind tasting to see if you have a sharp enough palate to spot which are New England and which aren’t.  Think you’re up to the challenge?  You’ll definitely want to stop by, then.  Well, let’s say you’re not up for the challenge.  That doesn’t matter.  Come by any way and try some great brews and wines.  

Cheers, OmNomivores!
