OmNomCT Events

We love filling up our week and weekends with fun events, especially the kind of events that have something to do with food.  Brewery tours, brewery tastings, wine tours, wine tastings, spirit tours, spirit tastings, farm tours, farm dinners, beer dinners, wine dinners, spirit dinners, festivals, fairs, bashes, cooking demos, and more keep us going all year long.  And, that’s why we decided to create our Nomworthy Events.  Although we’ve had this feature on our site for a while (it’s in the top headings under our banner), we’ve been continually filling it up with great events throughout Fairfield County…and sometimes just a bit over the border.

If you’re a restaurant or a festival organizer, let us know about special events and we can get them up on our Nomworthy Events page.  Also, if you’re aware of an event that you think we should put up, just let us know!  You can reply here, on our events page, our Facebook page, tweet us, or always just e-mail us at omnomct@gmail.com.  We don’t suggest carrier pigeon, as they are unreliable and are filthy rats with wings.

Thanks so much for reading!

Live Green Connecticut Is Back With Green Demos, Food, Music, and More…

4 Sep

We told you all about Live Green Connecticut last year and guess what…this annual festival is back and greener than ever!  This two day event (9/14 from 10-4 and 9/15 from 11-4) will be held at Taylor Farm in Norwalk.  Admission is free, but parking is $5 per car.  So, think green, share your ride, and save some cash.  And, believe it or not, all the waste from this year’s festival will be composted by Sustainable America (we think Jeremy Kranowitz is the man)!  Now, let’s go through some of the awesome things going on at Live Green, CT!

Food

  • Skinny Pines Pizza:  they keep it green by using local ingredients in their pies.
  • The Stand Juice Company:  they’ll be offering up the freshest of foods including juices, smoothies, salads, and sandwiches.
  • Green Leaf Organic Bakery & Cafe:  they’re keeping things natural and will be offering up yummy tarts, a chocolate souffle, cookies, quiches, sandwiches, and more.
  • LobsterCraft (Sunday):  our favorite lobster roll.  Captain Mike catches many of the lobsters himself and knows how to keep it local.
  • Melt Mobile (Saturday):  the girls of Melt Mobile use local and only the best ingredients and it comes through in their awesome sandwiches.  They’ll have dessert sandwiches, too!
  • Maddy’s Food Truck:  they’ll be offering up Caribbean classics like crispy conch, a Creole fish sandwich, jerk chicken, and griot and plantains.
  • Tacos El Azteca:  you’ll get your choice of tacos, quesadillas, burritos, and even tortas.
  • Cowabunga Grill:  Ben will be grilling up burgers, dogs, and Philly cheesesteaks.
  • Elm City Kettle Corn:  um, who doesn’t love kettle corn?
  • Island Cow Ice Cream:  keeping it real with organic milk and cream.  Check out flavors like lemon, ginger, red raspberry, and wild Maine blueberry.
  • Alex’s Lemonade Stand:  Connecticut Moms Online will be selling lemonade and baked goodies to help benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
