“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!

“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!

Time To Hit The Road…

January 13, 2011

Snow! More snow! And even more snow! I just heard the weather forecaster say that we have already had more snow than we receive, on average, in one winter! The snow is pretty, but I think I’m ready to hit the road!

Next weekend, January 21st through January 23rd, the 29th Annual Northeast RV & Camping Show comes to the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT.   I am looking forward to attending the show and checking out all the new recreational vehicles, trailers, pop-up campers, camping supplies and accessories, and speaking with representative from the Connecticut Campground Association.

Hmmm – where would I like to go? What supplies and accessories do I need? Snow may be on the ground outside, but I will be inside, planning my next getaway and getting answers to my questions!

Admission is $10. Children under age 14 are free. The show is open on Friday (1/21) from 12PM to 9PM, Saturday (1/22), from 10AM to 9PM and on Sunday (1/23), from 10AM to 5PM.

2010 Holiday Tour of the People’s House

December 5, 2010
View album

 
A prominent industrialist, George C. F. Williams, built the Georgian Revival style residence in 1909 at 990 Prospect Avenue in Hartford CT’s West-End. In 1943 the State of Connecticut decided that the Governor should have a “special” house, much like the President has the White House. The State acquired the home in 1943, renovated it, and the first Governor occupied the home sometime in 1945.
During the early 1990’s, the first lady of then Gov. Lowell Wiecher, started an annual tradition – a holiday open house. The Governor invites the public to tour the festively decorated first floor of the residence each year in early December.
