Milkshake my Sunday

I had the best milkshake this past weekend....
Sure, I could be talking about a dance move, since I got this yummy milkshake at this past weekend's Art Crafts and Blues Festival on Bedford Street in Stamford Downtown. Nope. I got it at Lucky's, one of the funnest places on Bedford Street, where you can get the best milkshakes. If you haven't tried their special shake, you must give it a run for the calorie. The blues music made me move and groove to work off those extra pounds, so no biggie.
Saturday night's festival was different from Sunday afternoon--it was so romantic. I had never been to the festival at night, and it was quite delightful. The music, by Levon Helm, superb. Really mellow blues. All the booths had out their best work. I enjoyed the glass blown guy. His work was amazing. Each booth had their own little light, which gave the street fair a welcome glow. I was surprised to see the French (Farmers) Market there, but it was a nice to see all the veggies still abundant in color. I wandered for a few hours, buying here and there, before my kids had enough and wanted to leave.

It was calm, yet festive: It is what I would imagine a small town would run to be neighborly. I had a great time, as did my family unit.

My thoughts on the talent!
Catch A Rising Star Opening Gala - Friday, September 19th

Robertt Klein is a comic legend becoming legendary through his Watergate scandal routines and it one of the first observational comics. He was also one of the first with a comedy special on HBO. Hilarious guy.

Andrew Kennedy, born in Bogota, Colombia. Half Colombian, half British and fully bi-lingual in Spanish, Andrew spent most of his childhood in South America, the Caribbean and the Far East. Having his family come to America only to settle down in New Canaan Connecticut, is probably the reason he became a comedian...I saw him early this year and he's a great performer with some great stories to hear.

Upcoming Schedule:
Andrew Kennedy - September 20. Missed him on Friday, check him out on Saturday!
Stamford's own Dan Levy Fri.-Sat. Sept. 26-27 @ 7:30 & 9:30pm - selling out fast - check it out!
