Barcelona hosts Memorial Day BBQ and pig roasts all summer long

15 May

Memorial Day and BBQs…they are inseparable like peanut butter and jelly, Batman and Robin, Lewis and Clark, Ren & Stimpy, bread and butter, and even pasta and sauce.  Perhaps they go so well together because BBQ’n brings family and friends together outside for good times, good fun, and good eats?  In essence, the grill unites people and connects us through our basic needs of friendship and food.

But, what do you do if you don’t have a grill or just want to go out and celebrate?  Easy…you head over to Barcelona Wine Bar & Restaurant in Fairfield on 5/27 from 1-9 pm.  For just $20 or $10 for kids (that’s a nice deal, btw) you’ll get a BBQ buffet that consists of sliders, kebabs, ribs, grilled veggies, salads, and their famous suckling pig.  For the beer lover, they’ll also have tastings from one of our favorite local breweries, Captain Lawrence.  They’ll have face painting for the kids (or that cool hipster) from 1:30-4:30, they’ll have outdoor games (cornhole please!), and they will even have a lemonade/popsicle/ice cream stand.  And, what’s a BBQ without live music?  Barcelona will have Rick Reyes & The Pasonfino Social Club playing from 2-6 while you chat, chew, and chill.

Colony Grill to Serve Breakfast Pizza Before Memorial Day Parade – Fairfield, CT

16 May

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”                                        Joseph Campbell

You know the list of ingredients to choose from at Colony Grill:

Meatball, sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, onions, black olives, cherry peppers, stingers, hot oil, anchovies, peppers, and bacon.

Well, they’re adding a few more into the mix this Memorial Day, 5/28.  At their Fairfield location on Post Road starting at 8:30 am, you’ll be able to get two new pies.  You can either have the bacon & egg pie or the sausage & egg pie.  Nothing says morning like a breakfast pizza!

Now, imagine this with sausage and egg…

Then, once you’ve had your fill, head outside to watch the parade that starts at 10.  The parade will march along east down Post Road to the library, then head south and east down Old Post Road, passing Town Hall Green.

Don’t forget that Memorial Day isn’t just a day when you don’t have to go to work…it’s a day to remember and honor those who died fighting for us and our freedom.  I’m very fortunate to still have my dad.  As a Marine, he fought in Vietnam and earned two purple hearts.  Oorah!

So, drive on down to Colony Grill in Fairfield, have one or more breakfast pizzas with your friends and family, then check out the parade together.
