Picnic in the Park w/ Eat for Equity Stamford 2 Benefit Mill River Collaborative

20 Aug

Eat for Equity Stamford is back with another great dinner event planned for August 31, but it’s different than any of their other events. When we had Kristien’s birthday party at our house, Meg and RJ told us that they wanted to do something really fun and summery this time around. Their thoughts: a giant picnic outside to enjoy the beautiful weather. We loved the idea and they made it official by posting the event a few weeks ago.

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.
