Wakeman Town Farm in Westport is hosting their 4th Annual Harvest Fest at 6 pm on 9/12. . . and, oh, you’ll want to get a piece of it. Well, lots of pieces, actually. That’s because there will be a smorgasbord of hors d’oeuvre and drinks in the form of cocktails, wines, and craft beer during the cocktail party. Then, things will soon shift focus to a dinner. Just look at this lineup of restaurants and vendors who will be making this night awesome:  The Spread, Artisan, Blue Lemon, Fairfield Cheese Co., Fleisher’s Craft Butchery, AMG Catering, Olivette, Wave Hill Breads, and Saugatuck Sweets.

In addition to all of that awesomeness above, there will be live music and an auction that features smaller prizes and bigger items like a stay at a private house in Big Sur, a four-course dinner party at Sugar & Olives and Barcelona, a family getaway, and a mysterious surprise vacation. Tickets for this event are $150 each and are on sale starting today. Click here to get ’em while the getting’s good (this event does sell out pretty quickly, btw).

Parallel Post + Onyx Moonshine Team Up for Scandalous Prohibition Dinner

26 Aug

As bad as you think your life is now with problems left and right, think about this:  what if you lived during the Prohibition Era?  You couldn’t get a beer, couldn’t get a cocktail, couldn’t even drink wine…what kind of life is that?  But, that didn’t stop the truly devoted who took the ban on liquor as a creative opportunity to sell illegal drinks in speakeasies and make a profit.  Oh, and you best believe that people started brewing their own liquid goodness too…stuff that would put hair on your chest, stuff that could polish (and maybe corrode) metal, stuff that was sure to get you all messed up with just a few sips.
