Summertime, and Growler Fridays at Half Full are cheap-y

21 Jun

Happy summer, Nutmeggers!  You got through winter and spring and now we finally have the official first day of summer.  So, what better way to kick off the longest day of the year and one of the best seasons than with Half Full Brewery in Stamford?  Every Friday until Labor Day, starting today (6/21), they’ll be filling up your growlers for 1/2 price.  1/2 price?  1/2 price!  Yes, 1/2 price on Half Full year round brews and select seasonal beer.  So, 64 oz. of the liquid gold that is Bright Ale will be $5 (though they are out for 6/21, but will be ready to pour next week), and 64 oz. of the IPA, Toasted Amber, and Raspberry Sour will be just $6.

Stamford Restaurants Paired with Acts from Alive @ Five 2013

23 Apr

We had a brilliant moment of realization:  someone needs to pair the bands and singers from Alive @ Five with restaurants in Stamford.  Who would be awesome enough to do that?  Well, since we couldn’t find anyone who’d be game, we decided to create a list of the bands and singers then provide a restaurant that would be perfect to hit up before (or after) the concert.  We’ll also give you an explanation for added entertainment value.  Also, check down below for costs, rules, and regulations for Alive @ Five 2013.

June 20, The Wallflowers paired with Zaza Italian Gastrobar

The Wallflowers, led by singer Jakob Dylan (son of Bob Dylan), gained popularity in the late 90’s.  Their rock riffs paired with deep lyrics and Dylan’s smooth voice (as opposed to his dad’s) make for some awesome songs like “One Headlight” and “6th Avenue Heartache.”  It only makes sense, then, that you’d need to eat at Zaza, a sleek, sexy, and rockstar-ish restaurant nearby the Alive @ Five stage.

June 27, The Mavericks paired with Plan B Burger Bar

It’s tough to really to say what kind of music The Mavericks play.  Sometimes they are country, sometimes they border on ska, sometimes they even push over to rockabilly, and sometimes they even find a way to throw accordions into their songs.  What better pairing, then, with Plan B Burger Bar at the Stamford Town Center?  You’ve got bourbon, you’ve got beer, you’ve got burgers, and you’ve got lots of killer sides that all gel together for that perfect pre-show meal.
