Pops in the Park Rain Venue

This was such a great event! I was kinda bummed that it was held indoors at first, but much to my surprise, the Palace was enchanting. Enjoying the music, and air conditioning, was refreshing. Preu was engaging and quite funny; not at all what you think of when you think "symphony." The familiar tunes took me back to my childhood, and all my fond memories. I am so looking forward to next week when the symphony plays out Broadway tunes. Let's hope it doesn't rain.

Enjoying the heat?

Yes, I am. I took a short stroll from the office at lunch time, with two co-workers, to a bustling little place called "Remo's Brick Oven Pizza Company" (35 Bedford). Nicely air-conditioned, we hurried inside. We were able to get one of the last two tables left. This place was flippin' pizzas! (although pastas, sandwiches, and salads adorned the menu as well) I chose the grilled chicken Caesar salad; yum-oh. Grilled perfectly. One friend had a tri-veggie pizza; artichokes, zucchini and peppers. Quite colorful. My other friend had a "make your own salad", which was filled with super fresh veggies. For dessert, we all shared a cannoli. Really creamy and delicious. A nice treat. Lunch at Remo's with my co-worker friends, good conversation and some excellent food is getting my week off to a good start...

Just a Friday night in the downtown.....

My husband and I thought we'd try Asian this past Friday night. Galangal was our choice. ( Located at 35 Atlantic Street) Along busy Atlantic street, we sat at a sidewalk table watching the passersby. I ordered an amazing seafood hot pot, not spicy, but hot, Thai-style soup. I would say that the food was pretty good. It was a quiet spot, but a good choice nonetheless.
It being a nice evening, my husband I decided to take short stroll to see what else was happening. We walked through Kwainis Park, and up lower Summer Street until we ran into the hustle bustle of Ferrante. As the owner, Lenny, stood outside greeting his patrons, we couldn't help but be drawn in by its charm. Although we had already eaten dinner, we decided that Ferrante would be a great place to enjoy a nice glass of Merlot. This place was full of energy. At the bar, we sat under a huge bouquet of fresh flowers, and enjoyed its aroma as well as an excellent glass of wine.
Afterwards, we headed over to the Pantry and Wine Shop at Napa (Broad Street) where Laura, the knowledgeable wine salesperson, recommended just the right bottle of wine to take home to top off our evening.
What a nice pleasant evening in Stamford Downtown to start off the summer......
