Cotto looking good at lunchtime...


At Cotto for lunch...

Had an arugla salad with chicken and avocado--that was my lunch today. I'll spare you the pic, but it was yum for sure.  The place was crowded with diners:  Inside prefered since it was "super moist" outside.   Olive bread on the side with fresh lemonly olive oil.   Refreshing it was - salad and ice water did it for me and was certainly a  winner in my book.

Due to the threat of thunderstorms, city officials have decided to postpone Stamford’s Independence Day fireworks show until Saturday, July 5.
“The postponement will not affect any other details of the event,” the mayor’s office said in a news release issued Wednesday afternoon. “The event is planned to begin at 6:00 PM at Cummings Park, with the fireworks display beginning after sundown. The event is free of charge.”
The National Weather Service is expecting showers and thunderstorms Thursday evening. Saturday’s forecast, however, predicts beautiful weather.

looking for something to do?

Looking for something to do on a Thurs?  Don't even think of jumping off a cliff.... Alive @ Five concerts start on July 10!



KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND TO PERFORM IN COLUMBUS PARK IN
STAMFORD DOWNTOWN on JULY 10, 2014

Alive@Five on the Bud Light Stage in partnership with Stamford Town Center, Reckson, BevMax and Copa Di Vino kicks off with KC &The Sunshine Band on Thursday, July 10 in Columbus Park in Stamford Downtown.
The Concert begins at 5pm.
KC & The Sunshine Band
KC & The Sunshine Band is still as widely popular today as they were when they first danced into the music scene 40 years ago. Harry Wayne Casey – KC for short – developed a unique fusion of R&B and funk, with a hint of a Latin percussion groove, giving us an impressive string of hits like “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s The Way (I Like It)” and “Shake Your Booty.” With sales of over 100 million records, three Grammy Awards and an American Music Award, KC & The Sunshine Band was one of the most progressive bands of the 70’s and is credited with changing the sound of modern pop music!



Wake Up Paradise
Wake Up Paradise is a rock group from Central New Jersey with something to say, and that something is...WAKE UP! Listen to their debut single, "Hits The Ground," and you will get the message loud and clear. Roger, Sal, Eric, and Lou have merged their respective instruments together to create a distinct, yet very accessible sound that showcases influences from alternative rock to jazz and hip hop. Wake Up Paradise has created a fun, upbeat, soulfully energetic rock sound that is sure to stick in your head and leave you wanting more. Keep an ear out for these guys. It shouldn't be too hard...they have a bullhorn. WUP! WUP!




Talent of
KUNJAN COLLECTIVE
Kunjan Collective has assembled some of the areas hottest DJs that have traversed the globe, to entertain the Alive@Five crowd this summer.
