“Salute” – Molto Buono!

August 14, 2011

Today was the last day of the Taste of Hartford 2011. There were 30 participating restaurants throughout the City of Hartford, each offering their own special three course menu for only $23 per person! Whatever your “taste” – Italian, Mexican, Asian, Continental, Portuguese, Cajun, Japanese, Spanish, or Seafood – there was something for everyone!

On this rainy Sunday evening, my husband, Joe, and I decided to try Salute. Located diagonally across from  Bushnell Park, an appetizing surprise awaits you. From the moment you enter Salute, hospitality greets you. The staff is warm and friendly. The service is excellent! You cannot tell the owners from the wait staff! The high coffered ceilings and granite tiled wainscoting frame a fine dining experience.

What to order? For me, a Field Green Salad to start, Rose Pasta for the entrée and for dessert, a Tiramisu that rivaled my best Tiramisu! Joe ventured beyond his comfort zone this evening and had the Strawberry Salad, Shrimp Fra Diablo and Banana Bread Pudding! Everything was fantastic! Thank you Lisa for the great service. We will return to Salute again in the near future! Grazie and Buon Appetito!

Quench Your Thirst On Main–History, Food, Drink and More

January 29, 2011

In the heart of Old Wethersfield, Connecticut’s largest historic district, are three of the town’s most popular historic homes.

Judah Wright built the Joseph Webb House in 1752 after Joseph Webb married Mehitabel Nott in 1749. When Joseph Webb died in 1761, the home passed to his son, Joseph Jr. Joseph Jr. married Abigail Chester in 1774. The couple loved to entertain so much that the home received the nickname  “Hospitality Hall”.” In May 1781 George Washington was a guest at Webb House and used it as his headquarters. There he met and planned the military campaign with French General Rochambeau that led to the victory at Yorktown and the end of the Revolutionary War.

Leave the snow, the shovels, and cold outside, and cruise to the CT Convention Center where spring and summer await you. There is something for everyone –



“Take Me Out To The Ball Game…”

January 23, 2011

Wait! Not Fenway Park! Not Yankee Stadium! Take Me To Vintage Baseball At Colt Meadows!

Last summer, my husband and I saw our first Vintage Baseball games and we had a blast. We attended on Boost Hartford Day and saw Billy Barnie’s Blue Boys play The Charter Oaks of Hartford according to 1860’s rules (no gloves) and the Hartford Senator’s play the Springfield Wheelmen according to 1880’s rules. We brought our lawn chairs, refreshments, and enjoyed the day at Colt Meadows. Food and refreshments were available at the vintage concession stand – soda pop, hot dogs, and more. Best of all, admission and parking were free! Vintage baseball – local, affordable, and for fans of all ages!


Ready for Spring?

January 16, 2011

Are you ready for Spring? I am! What better way to kick off Spring than by attending the 30th Annual CT Flower & Garden Show, February 24th through February 27th, at the CT Convention Center.
