I’m not a chocolate snob and I’m not geeky train fanatic. But If you throw wine into the mix, you might as well pen my name to the list, I’m there!
Just kidding. I don’t overindulge in wines and spirits, but I do enjoy trying out new things. For example, taking a scenic train ride along the Naugatuck river as we learn about chocolate and wine pairings, AND we get to visit the Connecticut-made Fine chocolate factory – Fascia’s.
This was a win-win-win for all.

Listen, you and I both know I [over]enjoy a meal or two. But I promise you I’m actively working on my diet, portion and activity goals. With that said, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to visit a local restaurant we LOOOOOVE. Sadly, I don’t frequent this part of Connecticut as often as I’d like, but when I can make the time, we’re here enjoying a delicious meal.
Raquel and I came to Tata’s restaurant and noticed the restaurant moved locations over the past year. The interior decor is still familiar and welcoming. Continue reading “We Dined at Tata’s Restaurant in Wallingford, Connecticut”
So our son was spending a week in NYC with Grandma and Grandpa. We decided to make a day-trip out of it and drive down to the Bronx. My father in law is part of a community garden located between two buildings.
They’ve cleaned out the area, made several raised beds and planted fruits, vegetables and a ton of other healthy stuff.
Each member of the garden has access to whatever they plant, and as far as I can tell they use it for their own personal use and share it with their family/friends.
Seems like a pretty neat idea and its encouraging to see that even in a dense area like NYC, you can grow vegetables, fruits, plants, etc.
Afterwards we took a trip to another NYC treasure, City Island! Continue reading “Hoe Garden Visit, Bronx, NYC”
Whats up everyone,
Just a few weeks ago Raquel and I visited Broadway at the Brewery, a fundraiser by the Southington Community Theater taking place at Witchdoctor Brewing Company.
The goal of the event was to fundraise for the Southington Community Theater, and to enjoy craft beer, gourmet grilled cheese, great vocal performances, all for a good cause!
This was our first time attending this sort of event, and our first time at Witchdoctor’s brewery. We were not disappointed!
First off, the location was beautiful. I know that’s subjective, but I like exposed brick, industrial and rustic settings, and this place fit the bill. Continue reading “Broadway at the Witchdoctor Brewery”
